BIG NEWS!!!

We were thrilled today to find out we are having a girl! Even more thrilling is that the baby is as healthy as can be! What a relief that is! She is growing just right and has all of her small little organs. The technician gave her an A+ for cooperating today. Below is a picture of her leg. Isn't that something? She looks like she belongs to a Perkins with a long leg like that!


I also discovered that I have gained 15 pounds in the last month!! When you count in what I lost while being sick, I'm right on schedule. I guess I'll have to skip on a few of my daily Blue Bell Cookies n' Cream dessert!

I got to spend the afternoon with my mom to celebrate her birthday - which is Friday. I think she's pretty happy with the gift of another granddaughter.

For those of you concerned about the baby pool - the gender isn't worth any points to keep it fair as the game continues. If you just can't stand that you're guess is wrong, it can be changed. If you registered when you guessed, you can do it yourself. If not, you can leave a comment or email me and I will change it for you. Also, there has been no change in the due date.

Thank you for all your prayers so far. This all has been such a blessing!

Soooooo excited for you! And Michael won't know what to do with himself once that little girl looks into his eyes...promise! Brad was smitten from the first day:)

Congratulations on your baby girl!

Did you eat a Snickers and drink a DP???

Brooke said...

I did drink a Dr. Pepper and eat a Snickers! The doctor just loved her and said she would do my sonagram any day! I'm a proud mama because she cooperated. Dara, if you read this, thanks for the tip about the sugary food to get her active! Sad thing is Michael pointed out afterward that Dr. Pepper will be my last Dr. Pepper of the year. That was the only sad point of the day.

It was only right for you to have a girl being that we all had girls first!! I got your message. I screamed!!! I am so happy for you guys and I will call you... the moving has not gone so well due to a broken AC. I'll tell you more later, but I am so excited and can't wait to meet baby Audrey (don't know if that is how you are spelling it). Love you and big hugs to you all!!!
