It's a...GIRL!!!!!!!









We are beyond excited over here!!!

I know you are too!!!;)

I was preparing myself for a boy but was so surprised to find out that we were indeed having a girl! (Just so you know I have nothing against boys, I just have 4 of them;)

We decided to take all the kids into the ultrasound today. The technician looked at us like we were crazy and said there wasn't enough room for everyone but we insisted and crammed them in. It was the best ultrasound visit by far! They were all in awe as they say the tiny perfect life growing inside me. I count that as a homeschool field trip!! So amazing how God forms life in our wombs!

Josh thought he saw something that indicated boy but when it was time to look for the certain parts...it was definately girl!

I had a rough day yesterday as I had one of the worst head colds of my life and on top of that was rudely woken up the night before by Luke throwing up all over me. So I was up all night with him. Thankfully Josh was able to stay home yesterday. I didn't think I was going to be able to make it to my appointment but after lots of tea and honey and some much needed rest I made it! Needless to say it was such great news after a couple of hard days!

I have already had a couple of friends offer to give me all their girl baby clothes so this girl is going to be set, though I know I will not be able to resist buying some clothes also.

I am just so excited not only for the baby stage but for the future days to come. Having a daughter has been so wonderful and I know having 2 will only be better. I am especially excited for Ellie. She has been especially praying for a sister as you can imagine with 4 brothers! She told me today that now the boys won't mess with her as much now that she will have a sister;P We'll see.

Those balloons are already long gone but we sure had fun celebrating today! Not only are we thankful that it is a girl but that it is healthy and growing!

  1. Aww! How awesome for your daughter (I have 2 brothers and I still feel like I missed out on having a sister...but, I have 3 daughters!). I'm currently pregnant with baby 6 too, but we didn't find out and I'm due in just over 4 weeks.....I can't wait to know, but my last 2 have been boys (I'm counting a loss at 18 weeks, so technically baby 7), so I'm also preparing myself that it is a boy and I'll be very surprised if it's a girl. Congratulations! I'm glad it was a great ultrasound after a rough couple of days.

  3. Yeah! So fun! I don't have a sister, but I have 2 daughters. I just LOVE watching them interact and grow up together. It is just the best. :) I'm sure you will love watching your girls together someday too.

  4. I am so excited for you and Ellie!! When I found out I was having a girl, I couldn't stop grinning. When I came out in the car to the carpark ticket box, the man asked my why I was so happy and I said, "I'm having a girl!" He was so happy for me, he let me go for free! And I went to the shop and bought a baby dress. Lol. A very happy memory for me as I look at my own beautiful girl. Hugs!
