It's a...

We had our ultrasound (US) last Wednesday (a little earlier than originally planned because of some really minor scares I might post more about later. I was really excited to get to actually have the Ultrasound when I was 20 wks instead of 23 or 24 wks like they had originally said). We had NO prep time as far as planning what we would do to reveal gender or if we were even going to do anything, because my Dr. ordered the US early, and they called to schedule the US appt on Tuesday while I was at work. I called back during lunch and made it for the next day at 1pm. It was my day off, and we were just out running errands as usual and not checking the clock. When we got home at noon I remembered "We have to be 15 minutes early to the appt". We dropped our goods off, ate a really quick lunch, and then were off to THE appointment. This pregnancy is literally flying by! I remember feeling like it took forever to finally find out with Liv, and here we were with baby #2 and we almost forgot! Sad. Poor baby #2. If this is the future and you're reading this we love you so much and would never forget about you! It was just so unexpected after being told we wouldn't know until 24 wks, to then all the sudden "you can come tomorrow". We're impatient for you to get here, so we love having it go by so fast! I hadn't even told my parents, whom I live with, much less anyone else that we were finding out that day. 

We took a quick video of Liv on the way to the appt.

We didn't tell anyone the news after the appt, because we were still brainstorming something fun to do with my family. We decided to tell them after dinner and have everyone guess what they thought the baby would be by picking a pink cupcake for girl or a blue for boy.


And then Liv would "tell" everyone if it was a boy or girl with what she chose.
Its a........

GIRL!!!!





We are so excited to have another girl and a little sister!
Of course I would have been happy either way, but I was very slightly leaning more towards girl because I just really wanted sisters in a row. Does that make sense?
Plus we already have all the girl stuff, but really I'm just so excited for sisters! Can you tell I love my sisters? :)
And I am already totally in love with my healthy growing baby GIRL too.

You forgot to mention how GORGEOUS that first baby girl of yours is and how it would be nice to duplicate her. Good looks just run in the family! From mama to liv to baby girl #2! CONGRATS. I totally understand the "sisters in a row thing." I like the logic. A lot actually.

CONGRATULATIONS!! Yay for sisters! I must agree . . . I loved having my three boys in a row, and when we had Claire after that the next one just HAD to be a sister, and thankfully it was!! This will be so perfect for Liv. So excited for you!!

p.s. I loved the video of Claire and Liv on your last post . . . She watched herself probably 20 times -- thanks for posting that!!! And then we watched "Olivia's backyard" about 20 times after that! :)
