We have NEWS!

Alright, yesterday I was very humbled. I went in for my Ob doctor's appointment and found out the gender of our little baby. For those of you who know me well, I have been professing that it is a boy. And until a few days ago, I was feeling all different with this pregnancy and thought "Maybe we are having a girl..." Well, yesterday I was pleasantly surprised (and very humbled) to find out that we are definitely having a GIRL! Both Justin and I are very excited, a little scared, but mostly just ecstatic that everything is looking good with her development. But honestly, our first questions were "What do we do with a girl?" and "So how do I do her hair?" I'm sure it will all be wonderful. Every Mommy needs a little girl to go shopping and go see girly movies with!

Here are her latest pictures:

Her profile. She has my nose already!














Here's an arm & hand. All 5 fingers! Whew!













Here's the proof: GIRL through and through!

She's darling! You will be a nature at being a little girl's mom. And as for Justin, she will melt his heart. By the way it's okay for her to be a little "tom boy" too. She will have so much fun with her brothers. Congratulations!

Hurray! Everyone tells me once you have 2 boys, that's all you get. You give me hope! I'm excited for you and your little smelly kitten.

YEAH!!! Kari, I am so excited for you! Girls are such wonderful things to have! They just make things so sweet (however, you have been blessed with two sweet little boys to begin with, but now you'll just be adding a little bit of sugar to the recipe!) I am so excited for you. We won't find out what we're having for a couple more weeks, but I will let you know if our babies will be little gal pals, or if we will have to arrange their marriage!

Kari-I want to come to your blog still. Saw you on rach's. CONGRATS on a girl, I had two first and getting my boy has been so much fun. It's nice to have a change. Drama is definitely in your future...and lots of PINK. So FUN! Tell Justin HI. I saw his gma at Cafe Rio with his aunt from texas I think. His Gma lived down the street from mine for many years, we had a good time visiting with her. What a great family you married into.( i always thought his sisters were so much fun)
Hopefully you remember me. My email is shanda.nash@hotmail.com (was mclaws).
