There Will Be a New Color at Nathan and Melanie’s

–in the children’s department that is!



Melanie had an ultrasound recently, and they asked the tech to write what gender the baby is and put the card in an envelope. After dinner, Abby opened the envelope and read it aloud: It’s a BOY! Shock and amazement ensued. Wow! A boy after four little girls. They celebrated with blue-frosted cupcakes! We praise the Lord for His blessing.

Joyfully His,

“Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men.”
Psalms 107:31

  2. WOW!
    We are so excited for you all!
    Praying every day for Melanie and the baby,
    The R. Family

  3. I know that excitement! I had an ectopic, three girls, and then a boy. And he is ALL BOY. Those big sisters don’t know what they’re in for. πŸ™‚ Yay!

  4. How sweet! I think back when Susannah Joy was born and the sorrow and pain that followed. It warms my heart to see the immense joy on Melanie and Nathan’s faces, as well as their arms full of children.

    Jeremiah 31:13b comes to mind:

    … for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.

  5. Oh my word! How exciting! I remember finding out we were having a boy after two girls and being shocked still when he was born. πŸ˜‰ Congratulations and many prayers for a healthy baby and delivery!

  6. That is so exciting! I hope you continue the ABC theme for the name. Praying for you, Melanie and baby.

  7. Congratulations! Such exciting news – did you find out the baby’s gender ahead of time with your girls? I’m assuming that everything else looked good with the ultrasound, which is also cause for rejoicing.
    First one they found out about.

  8. Congratulations!! Boys are such fun!!

    Have Nathan and Melanie decided to continue their name “theme”, and go with a D name for their new little boy?
    Don’t know.

  9. So happy for all of you! A little boy! πŸ™‚ Praying that all continues to go well.

  10. How exciting! We have friends that had 5 girls before having their first boy (and then two more boys right after). And I know it was quite a special surprise for them! πŸ™‚

  11. Oh how sweet! He’ll have 3 big sisters to love all over him and treat him like a prince.

  12. WOW!Congratulations…. I have tears of joy for you all!
    I hope and pray that your pregnancy is going well and you are healthy Melanie.
    Thank you for sharing.

  15. Squeeee! I am so excited for all of you! Time to start stocking up on boy clothes — there’s gonna be a new man in the house! Can’t wait to see him.

  16. Congratulations on your baby boy!! What a blessing. Can’t wait to hear what his name will be!

  17. This was such a bright spot to my day! What a blessing! I’m excited for everyone, and continuing to pray on for this precious baby.

  18. YAY!!! Congratulations! Thank you for letting us know. God bless you, Nathan and Melanie. So happy for you.


  19. Congratulations to all. Praise God for His good and perfect plan. Love to all the Maxwell’s.
    Amen! Blessings to your family Charles.

  20. How exciting!! And what a blessing that he will have those wonderful big sisters. My son is the “baby” with older sisters, and over the years he’s learned so much from them (and knows how to be extra-patient with girls!). πŸ˜‰
    Praying for a smooth delivery and healthy baby.
    Love, Mrs. Patti

  21. Congratulations! How fun!

    My in-laws had a boy (my husband), a girl, then four more boys. When the next one was a girl my MIL’s midwife said “It’s NOT a boy!” instead of “It’s a girl!”. We all still laugh about that!

    Enjoy adding a little boy to the mix!

    That is funny.

  22. God is certainly good and this is a real blessing. I also love the joy on Nathan and Melanie’s faces, and the excitement in the whole family.

    Much love,

    Cate N.

  23. Our family is so happy to hear this wonderful news! What a precious blessing! It will be fun to see and hear how the girls love on their precious new brother when he arrives. So sweet. πŸ™‚
    You bless our hearts so very much, Maxwells! He is so worthy!!

  24. So, so happy for all of you!! Any addition is a blessing, of course, but we are extra happy for Nathan and Melanie to get to enjoy a boy! Lots of love and prayers from all of us in AZ.

  25. A family friend just had her 6th girl in a row, they truly thought they would get their boy this time. We will see what the future holds!

  26. Rejoicing with the entire Maxwell family that another son and grandson is on the way! Praise the Lord!

    Love and Prayers from NJ,

    Lisa and Hannah
