It's a girl!


Well, we've done it: covered both genders with our first two babies. For all technicality reasons I wanted another boy: hand-down clothes, same toys to play with, can keep their bedroom boyish and since the b-day's will be close it would make one birthday theme easier.
BUT, I am really glad that I will have a little girl to dress up, do hair (in a few years), and sew little girl clothes. We also have a few more ideas for girl names this time--though we still don't know the final name yet. Being at 20 weeks pregnant, we still have some time to go.
About the ultrasound: she was very active--stretching all limbs and constantly turning. The pictures they got weren't as clear as the ones we had with Caleb...oh well. Derrick and I still can't believe how completely formed babies are at just 20 weeks. Everything really is there from a beating heart to 10 little toes. Caleb sat in Derrick's lap for the full 40 minutes! We couldn't believe it, he was so good and for that, we are grateful. We can't wait to meet our little girl!
