When Ryan and I first started talking about having kids, he was very adamant about not wanting a girl because he would have way too much to worry about.

He said that there aren't many quality Christian guys out there, and he didn't some monster trying to weasel his way into the life of any daughter of his.

When we found out that our second baby would be a girl, he was excited, but I could tell he had some fear about the unknown of her future.

From the moment Aubrey was born,
she had her Daddy wrapped around her finger,
and I know that she always will.

Ryan often talks to her about what kind of man she needs to choose for a mate one day, and what kind of "hooligans" to stay away from.

He makes sure to point out to her that she will give him a heart attack if she does not choose her guy wisely.

Nothing pleases Ryan more than to know that his
baby girl is provided for and protected.

As of this coming February, Aubrey will not only have a Daddy and big brother to watch out for her,
but a baby BROTHER to protect her also!

Yup, that's right, at my first doctor's appointment,
we learned that I am a couple of weeks further along than I thought and that we are most definitely
having another BOY!

A warning to any future suitors of Aubrey Lynn, you will have quite a crew of strong, protective, and discerning Sparks' men to go through before you ever get to her.
