The Reactions Five

When we brought this sweet boy home the girls couldn't wait to find out if they had another sister or if it was their luck that a brother had been delivered.
 First we made them take turns telling us who they suspected was in Ryan's arms.
 They all guessed a brother except Clover.  How Clover wanted a baby sister.  Named Bumblebee.
 So we finally told them they finally had a baby brother.
 Divine's face tells it all.
 They were all absolutely thrilled.
Except poor Clover.  She was devastated.  She wanted me to put him back in my tummy.  She still won't have anything to do with him.  I have suspicions, though, that they'll be fast friends when he gets older.
 Good thing the majority of the dill girlies are ecstatic.

  7. Oh my, so sweet, I love their reactions. Even poor Clover, I sympathize with her, I was so steamed when my mom brought home baby boy after baby boy! lol. I was so overjoyed when I finally got a sister, but we were six years apart and didn't actually play with each other, I played with the boys after all ;)

  11. Oh, sweet little Clover's face....she breaks my heart! My little one gets the same squishy look when she cries, too.

    I'm so glad that the rest of the family is thrilled, and I'm sure Clover will come right around, too ;)These photos are such a treasure!

  16. Wow! I just love these pictures... what a special time. I can't stop thinking about what it might be like to be a boy growing up with five older sisters. So cool.

  17. Darling little Clover. She will realize soon that she is much older than her baby brother and she will have no trouble putting him in dresses pretending that he is her baby sister. At least that's what I did to my baby brother :).

  28. Divine's face just says it all! How wonderful this little man will be with such loving sisters (maybe Clover will keep him humble!)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh my goodness, the little sad, crumpled face of Clover is just so precious. Poor big sister, having a little brother...I adore my little brother, hopefully she will too!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love how you took photos as you told them the news. They are priceless! Poor Clover though.
    My 3yr old has an 18 month old sister... we've got another on the way which we aren't finding out. She thinks it's a sister but today decided it will be a brother. We'll all be surprised when the time comes! Hope you're resting and enjoying him. I bet the nappy changing is WEIRD after 5 girls!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. they will surely go on to become good friends! the pic of the little one sighing is priceless!

    ReplyDelete
  32. What a lucky little man to have all of those doting girls and to have such a good example in a father. Oh that sweet little Clover. I remember praying that all of my three little brothers would be girls and be named "Daisy" (after Daisy Duke...oh my). I'm so happy you get to experience a boy!

    ReplyDelete
  33. How precious! Both the excited faces and the sad one brought tears to my eyes!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow those are PRICELESS photos capturing that special moment! Bless little Clover - I think you are right they'll be fast friends. Boys bring a very wonderful (and energetic!) dynamic to the family :)
    Enjoy being home with your precious littles around you X

  35. How wonderful! I love the play by play photos. Hope you are getting enough rest.

  36. These pictures are great!-
    when my parents brought my little brother, Alex, home from the hospital, I famously asked them to go back and get a girl, and now, at 10 and 17, we really are best friends, he's the best to hang out with, and I spoil him rotten :)xxx

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oooooh... the sad face of Clover :(
    But the little lights in the eyes of your other girls, super!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You have such gorgeous girls! Their looks of delight (minus poor Clover's tears..aw!) when they find out they have a baby brother are priceless!
    My step-mum is pregnant and if it's a boy he will have 6 older sisters! We're all hoping for a boy.
    Congratulations, you have such a perfect family :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love how excited the girls were! It made me laugh to see Clover's sad little face. Clover and Bumblebee would have been cute little pals though! :) Can't wait to see him in person and find out his name!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. There is no doubt that sweet, little Mr. Dill will be completely loved and adored by his older sisters...even Clover! Thank you so much for sharing your life with us and letting us share in your joys.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Aww. Bless her little heart! I bet she will be his best buddy!

    ReplyDelete
  42. And I'm ecstatic too. She will relish (dill relish?) the role of big sister. This will be one well looked after little man. Six women telling him what to do? He'll receive plenty of advice and direction I am sure. :-)

    Congratulations on this very exciting blessing. So very happy for you! And I suspect the Lord has a very special friendship in store for Miss Clover and her new buddy.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love that you share such beautiful pictures and special moments with us. That's why we visit your blog and follow all your stories and crafty adventures every week.

    Clover will follow her sisters and be ecstatic in no time, I know.

    Congratulations again Katy and hugs from Toronto!

  44. Oh... and I forgot to say: I can't wait to know the name of the sweet boy/new baby dill!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh her little face...Congrats on the new baby Dill. I hope Clover will soon learn how precious little boys are!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm so excited for you and your girls. Congrats. I love Divine's face, she is going to have so much fun.

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is the sweetest post ever. I love Clover's face, so precious/hilarious, and what she said was such a three-year-old thing to say. You can't make that stuff up! The girls look so happy. What a great surprise for them!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Ahh, this was so sweet. Your girls are darling. I'm sure Clover will soon come to love her baby brother!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Congratulations! A boy! Excited for you and your whole family.

  50. aww. That's the sweetest thing :)

  51. what a sweet story! reminds me of when I asked my daughter what she wanted, a brother or a sister, and she said, doggie. she got a brother.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Those expressions, their look...so sweet!what an amazing way of capturing that moment! and poor little Clover..., she'll get over it really quickly!

    ReplyDelete
  53. A boy! Congratulations! Oh what fun you'll have with him :) I thought you'd have another girl. One of my first thoughts of this wee little man with five older sisters was how much work his future girlfriends will have trying to impress the girls!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh Katy, those expressions are priceless! HUGE congratulations to you and your family on the arrival of your sweet new son :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Congrats- how wonderful it was that you guys waited to tell them in person with your baby boy! Clover will eventually be dressing him up... I was the same way when my parents brought my brother home - I refused to address him by his name and only as 'Oscar ' after 'the grouch'! Best of luck with the healing process and I look forward to learning his name and seeing more pics !

    ReplyDelete
  56. Ahh yes. My two boys now have a 3 month old sister, and though they love her, every once in a while they do ask "When's she going back in your tummy?" But we love her. And I love following your brood. I always wonder: can one do a big family? I think I want one, but can it actually function? And you show me that it is do-able =) Blessings on your new little one.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Lovely pics. My daughter (now six) kept asking me to take her little brother (now three) back from wherever we got him. That lasted for a few weeks until we finally got it through to her that he was staying. Now they play pretty well together! And fight! And laugh and roll about and fight some more! That's siblings for you!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Congratulations! How exciting for your family! I enjoy reading your blog...you so inspire me to be better! Enjoy your time with your little guy!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Poor Clover! I am in the middle of 5 boys in my own family, and when my 5th brother was born, I cried and cried. I wanted a sister so badly! And, I was 6! I did get a sister when I was 8, but Clover already has 4 sisters, so she'll probably be okay. :) Congratulations to you all. You are a lovely family and I admire you greatly.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Many many congrats! You are going to really enjoy that new baby BOY!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  63. I can't believe I have been away from the internet at the wrong time to congratulate you and your family! Welcome to the little sweetheart. I bet he's going to be super spoiled and magically loved ;-) even by Clover

    ReplyDelete
  64. So special. Brought tears to my eyes. What happy, sweet, wonderful days these are! Enjoy. :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Cutest post ever, what a BEAUTIFUL family you have! Congrats Dill-y-yo!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh, sweet Clover! At least she will be unique - the only one to have only a little brother, no little sisters! (I have two of each myself!)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Congrats to you and your family! What a lovely series of shots...such treasures.

    Wishing you all the best during this sweet, sleep-deprived, over-flowing-with-love-and-other-emotions time!

  68. Oh that is too precious.

  69. Congratulations to the Dill Family! I cant wait to see all the cute little boy cloths you will make! Such a beautiful family!

  70. I know, belated. But congratulations. I'm catching up on all your Baby Boy posts and I'm totally welling up with emotion.

    When my third sister was born (an all girl-five-family) my second sister's only comment was, "Oh, rats!"

    We only have three boys, but are having our first girl. Our youngest, as yours, was the only one who was hoping for a repeat in the gender series. The other two are giddy and can't stop talking about their baby sister (two more months!) Hoping my little one will come around, too.

    Take care and enjoy your little ones duing your babymoon.
