We're having.....

A GIRL! We are very happy and excited! Of course, we would have been happy and excited if we were having a boy, too. But, I've had a girl and sort of know how to "do" girl. Plus- our girls will be exactly three years apart. So- I have girl clothes, toys, and decor galore! The only thing we'll need for this little one is diapers and wipes. We haven't completely settled on a name yet, so I'll hold off on that for now.

We got several pictures, but this one is our favorite.
Look carefully and you'll see her tiny fingers on her forehead! :)

Our doctor was very pleased with the baby's development. She said that everything looked beautiful. She's also happy with my weight gain this time around. It's less than where I was with Gracie at this time in the pregnancy. I'm not sure how that's possible given all of the fudge I've consumed since Christmas!!! But- we won't talk about that!!!
I was so looking forward to telling Gracie that she's having a baby sister. This is pretty much how the conversation went, however.
Me: Gracie, are you excited? Our baby is a little girl. You're going to have baby sister.
Gracie: No, our baby is a boy baby.
Me: No, she's a girl. You are going to have a sister.
Gracie: Maybe we could get a cat.
Oh My!!!!


  1. Yay for a girl! Congrats! The conversation with Gracie cracks me up!

  2. Congrats! It's great that you still have all of Gracie's girly things, so you can save money and reuse! Her response to the news was too funny. :)

  3. Yay! Congratulations and what a beautiful ultrasound picture.

  4. ha ha! laughed out loud at gracie's reaction. bless her.

  5. Gracie is going to LOVE having a sister! I can't wait to have 2 girls!!

  6. SWEET response from Gracie! A cat!! At least she didn't ask for a pony? Congrats on your new baby girl!
