You Guessed It!

It's another girl for us! I know I told everyone around me that I really really really wanted a boy, but in the days leading up to my ultrasound I changed my attitude and decided that what I really wanted was a healthy baby. I haven't felt sick at all with this pregnancy, but it has been an emotional one and until today I have kept my excitement inside. Now I just want to shout it to the world that we have a healthy(and most likely, LARGE) baby girl due 5 months from today. I couldn't be happier!

The kids seem excited too, they had fun looking at the ultrasound pictures and Carly likes to talk about the baby she has in her tummy too. Easton is an awesome big brother and said he wanted another sister, so he is happy, and a friend reminded me today how much fun it is for a girl to have a sister. So true. To celebrate (or maybe more an excuse to yet again not make dinner) we went to get a giant cheeseburger that I have been wanting for a long time. It really hit the spot, and it was fun to see our friends who joined us.

Yahoo! Congrats, that's awesome! I'm such a dork, I knew on the last post, but my computer was being silly, and I said I would comment later. But now I can say Hurrah!

That's cool you're not sick. I hope that happens to me on the next one.

That's true about a girl having a sister, and it's great that Easton is so on board. YAY!

Couldn't be happier! Five months doesn't sound that far away but think of all the growing she will do in that time. You have the big baby thing down so no need to worry about that. I want to go buy her something right today, what does she need? So exciting, I can't wait!! It's so cute that Easton and Carly are excited too. They will love watching your tummy grow.

By the way, I had hummus and it's yummy!

Girls are fun and nothing beats having a sister. And I am so with you that fuddruckers is the best, especially when pregnant.
