But as it turns out this Independence Day we will be celebrating the opposite of independence as Baby Crandall #4 joins our family!!
Reactions of the girls:
Marlie, my forever realist - "Mom that means you are going to have 4 kids to take care of!!"
Samantha, the comic relief - "We'll I hope it's a girl because I want a girl to babysit!"
But of course the general feeling is excitement . . . With a little bit of surprise :)
