she may be the face i can’t forget

We’re having a girl!

It's a girl!

Our ultrasound was a success and we not only found out that we’re having a daughter, but that she has all her parts and is looking healthy! We saw just about all the body parts – even two little feet. As they were poking around with the ultrasound wand, we even saw her kick one of her skinny little legs. They captured a video of her heartbeat and you can even see the 4 chambers of the heart. Pretty amazing considering how tiny she still is.

We are just thrilled to be having a little girl. It feels so good to refer to her as a “her” instead of “it” and to think about all the things having a daughter brings. Drew called it from day one and is very comfortable with the fact that he is already outnumbered. Now we can really get the planning and decorating started! Oh, and we should probably figure out a name for this little lady!

    Congrats to you guys! I can tell you that Ellie already has her daddy wrapped around her little finger. It doesn’t take much πŸ™‚ especially because now she is smiling all the time. It is really cool to see your ultrasound photos. Love the baby face one. Enjoy all the little kicks now.
