We're having...

A BABY GIRL!!!! I have just stared at this u/s photo all day. I think she's going to have full lips like her Mommy & Daddy...I hope so anyway. :) She was moving around a lot during the u/s. Everything looked perfect!


We went in for the u/s and I surprisingly wasn't nervous. I was more excited than anything. It took all of 3 seconds for the tech to say, "It's a girl!" At that moment, we both started crying. I honestly thought my heart was going to explode. I cried through the entire u/s. (LOL) Majority of people have been telling me they just knew it was going to be a boy, so I think I was very prepared to hear those words.

This is right after we found out...you can totally tell that I've been crying in this pic! (LOL)


Alex said, "I'm going back to work, telling my boss it's a girl, and asking for a raise." HA! He knows how much Momma likes to shop and now he's going to have two girls in the house! :)


My nephew, Pryce spent the night, so he was at the u/s with us. He said he usually finds everything out after everyone else, so it was a nice change to find out BEFORE the rest of the family. HA! After leaving the clinic, we stood in the parking lot calling our entire family. Our families are HUGE, so that took a while. :)

Here's the proud daddy, making his calls. I over heard him telling his Dad that he's going to have to go invest in a shotgun. (LOL) He's going to be one protective Daddy!


Alex had to go back to work, so Pryce and I went and bought our baby girl a present. Needless to say, everything is going to have this baby girl's initials/name on it!


Then we went and celebrated with my sister and nephew, Cody. Lunch at Mimi's...yum!


Cody & Pryce


I've been on cloud 9 all day. I went and ordered the crib today. It should be in by the end of July. I'm looking forward to getting started on the nursery!!

Many of you have asked what the name is going to be. Alex has asked me not to put baby girl's name on the blog, so if you would like to email me, I can share it with you that way. There is an email button on my sidebar.

Love you guys,

cady said...

congrats!! that's so exciting. baby girls are so much fun to shop for. :)

Jesse and Mandy Peterson said...

YAY!!! I'm so excited for you. I know I'd be even more broke if I was having a girl. I have to force myself to walk away from the cute little dresses and buy something with little trucks or puppy dogs on them instead.

I know I thought you were having a boy, but I did tell you that it won't even matter once you find out. You look at that baby and just know that they are your's- your son or your daughter. It doesn't even matter what preconceived notions you had coming in. That's your baby and you know it.

I'm so excited for you. And I do plan on emailing you at some point to find out about her name since I still want to make you a nice little gift (as I mentioned when you found out you were pregnant).

Praise God! Can't wait to see pictures of everything you are buying and putting together for her!
