We’re Having A …….

Jul 17, 2013

Could not wait to share the news but we just found out today we are having a GIRL!! I am still a little in shock. I always pictured myself with 3 boys. I feel beyond blessed that I get to experience having one of each sex. I am excited for this new girl frontier and a little scared for my credit cards, because lets face it most girl stuff is cuter, although I have gotten pretty darn good with my boy shopping.   Best news though is that the baby looked healthy and honestly that is all I care about.   So grateful and thankful for a good report today.  Hard to wrap my head around the fact I am going to have a daughter, but I am over the moon excited! 

Thanks for everyone’s support and encouragement it means so much to me.  and it looks like the old wives tales proved to be correct for me!
