We just found out this week and I couldn't wait to share with you that our baby-on-the-way is a . . .
G I R L !!!
20 Week Baby Bump
Of course we would be thrilled with either a boy or a girl and just pray that our baby is healthy and strong. She looked perfect on the sonogram and I got to see all her cute little parts and her legs crossed and hands up by her face. Her face! Ahhh, I still can't believe it! She is absolutely adorable, even inside!
Because my husband had to work, I went to the appointment alone and told them not to tell me the gender, but put it in an envelope that we could open together as a family later that night. I would have been so tempted to peek, but I really wanted to find out at the same time, so I took the envelope to our local grocery store and had them make a cake with pink icing inside for girl and blue for boy. Given the short notice, they didn't do anything fancy, but all I was concerned with was getting the icing on the inside correct!
When James came home from school, we told him the surprise inside the cake.
So excited to find out!!
Then we let James cut the cake. He's on video saying he hoped it was a brother right before cutting into the cake! She's gonna love that later!
OMG!!!!!!!!!! It's a girl!!! Since the very beginning of the pregnancy, I had a feeling it was a girl, but wasn't 100% sure. My husband and I are still kind of in shock even now.
James is just ready to eat cake.
The bakery gave us back the envelope with the baby's picture and the word GIRL clearly spelled out, which I definitely double checked!
Later that night, I did a little interview with James about his thoughts on having a little sister. I'm glad I recorded that, will be especially fun to watch later! When I asked him what he thought she would look like, he said she's gonna have brown hair and peach skin. Loved that!
The next day, my Mom came over and we got to take a few fun announcement pictures. We've been through a lot this year, so some mother-daughter time to celebrate the soon-to-be granddaughter was so wonderful.
We are so happy to share our big news with you!
