I still can’t believe it.
The ultrasound was so much fun – all of us talk about it every day. Yesterday morning, I woke up and made pancakes (this is rare, friends), sat down and ate while making my meal plan for the next two weeks (this is rare, too), I showered by nine (again! rare!) and sat down at my computer to edit photos.
She begin kicking and probably dancing, I think. (by the way, she has a beautiful name but we aren’t making it public but it’s perfect and it will be so worth the wait) Anna and Noah were outside with friends, Brian was in the shower, Eli was sleeping. Finally, movement strong enough to share with someone and no one was nearby. I just sat back and closed my eyes and pictured her happily jumping and testing out her new muscles and reflexes.
Brian came down and was able to feel her. HER.
Oh my gosh.
It was so much fun sharing this news with you on Friday. I called my Mom directly after the ultrasound, she had been predicting girl. She even had a dream it was a girl. She’s visiting my brother in Colorado Springs, she was on the golf course and she said “well?!?!?!?!” I said “IT’S A HEALTHY BOY!” and she seemed surprised, like, really? Are you sure? But she laughed and said “well that is just perfect! A boy!” And then I said “just kidding, it’s a girl.” and oh, she laughed and yelled and cried and her reaction was priceless and so much fun.
I have such a busy day today. This pregnancy is flying by and I’m pretty sure I can blame having three busy kids and a busy photography business on that. I’m not upset, by any means, but life is just so busy. I just wanted to stop in and say Hi and also warn you that my pretty blog will become even prettier over the next 16-40 hours or so, so if you come here and it looks broken, it’s not, it’s just in the dressing room getting a fresh application of make-up and a pretty new outfit. (I’m really excited!)
I hope you all are having beautiful weather and can take some time out of your busy day to just breathe in the blessings of your life.
