Hello! It’s been a while since we have introduced ourselves so follow along! My name is RossAnne and I am sure you can pick me out in our family picture. You got that right. I am a boy mom. In our family of seven there are five boys, my husband, and me! I love being a boy mom, but… I am rooting for myself because I recently gained a new daughter when my son got married last week and… a baby GIRL from our oldest son and his girlfriend. Let me tell you, I am already spoiling this little girl with all the things I never could as a boy mom. She is very loved by all the boys in the house.

You’ve been pregnant for nine months now and all you can think about is giving birth for the first time. Wondering, “how bad is this really going to be?” “Am I going to be able to do it?” The answer is of course! It is scary and uncharted territory for you, but you’ll push right through it.
