It’s a…

21 February 2011

I have to admit, when we first decided to start trying for baby number two, I really wanted a girl.  We both did.  After almost a year of fertility treatments though, then the hospital, the exhaustion and on and on and on… I just wanted a HEALTHY baby.  Seeing the ultrasounds each time with strong heartbeats and a wiggling little being brought tears to my eyes.

And that right there is what we have.  See?  A healthy fabulous baby… that sort of looks like an alien.  Maybe I should be worried?

So, for as much as I have been dying to tell you, I’m not going to. 

 

I decided that since I get to pass on the news of a healthy perfect baby to you, I’m going to let someone else tell you the BIG NEWS.

 

Ree?

PW 063

A special thank you to Ree for participating in our reveal.  She wrote “it’s a girl” so huge and then made sure I actually wanted her to sign the book before adding her name.  HA!  Now looking at the pics and that giant belly {where did that come from?!?} I can see why she wanted to make sure I wasn’t in labor right then.  I also can’t wait to tell you all about our adventure meeting her later this week.

I have to admit that when I told you all I was pregnant, we also knew what we were having.  My ultrasound tech is a rockstar who has been doing this for almost 30 years.  She told me when I was just 15 weeks.  It’s something that I wanted to hold onto a bit longer though.  We wanted to make sure that everything looked well with the baby.  We wanted to let it sink in a little and process things a bit.  We also wanted to be sure that a vagina indeed was present at the big ultrasound before we told the world.

And we’re thrilled.  Absolutely, positively thrilled.

Congrats! And, I'm about to bust out into "it's a small world." I was there too!! B&N on Olentangy!!! I didn't see you though. :( I did see Ms. Single Mama (don't know if you're familiar w/ her). Oh and I got my box of goodies yesterday. They must have arrived Saturday, but as I was in Columbus, I missed it. Thanks so much!

You look fantastic! And congratulations! Kids are great no matter what but it is a different experience to have one boy and one girl and see the differences and similarities. You are going to have so much fun! Tell Daddy to watch out...those little girls hypnotize their Daddy's really quickly (and their Mommy's too!)

(Hopefully this is not a duplicate - whacky computer)
