Big News!

Today was a pretty exciting day for Misi and I. We went for my first big ultrasound at the hospital. We arrived at the hospital around 1:30, and after a few minutes of trying to figure out where to go we found the right place. I went to admissions and got registered and then headed back to the radiology office. We had to wait a 20-30 mintues until the girl finally came and got us. She took us into a small room and then proceeded with the ultrasound. It was a lot of fun to see how much the baby had grown. We hadn't seen the baby for about 2 months, so it definitely grew a lot. We were able to see the little hands and feet, long arms and legs, and even watch it open and close its mouth. After about 45 minutes, another girl came in to finish up. The first girl couldn't quite figure out the gender so she told the new girl to figure it out. By this point I could tell Misi was getting excited, as was I. She dug into my stomach and full bladder to get to a better view of the baby's lower region...after which she began to explain what the 'little black dots' represented. It was sure enough a GIRL... I didn't really know what to think. I was going to be excited either way. Misi and I were just kind of in shock...it's just so weird to know that it is actually a baby girl. I'm sure that it will be the most real when she is finally here! After the appointment I texted my Mom and Mykelle, and then Dad, Wes and Jadon. So all my siblings found out..and were very excited. Mykelle told me she already wants to go out and buy clothes! Can't argue with that one. Each of the little boys (Kallan & Kameron) called to find out what it was after they got out of school. Kallan thought it was going to be a boy, and seemed pretty cool about it being a girl. Kameron on the other hand, had a different opinion. I had talked to him the night before and he said he didn't know what he was going to do if it was a girl. He wanted it to be a boy so he could teach him how to play football! Well, he called today and asked..'So, what is it.' I told him to guess, and he guessed a boy. I then said..'You are 100% WRONG!' LOL...He started to scream and said 'WHAT!? It's a girl!!' hahaha...he seemed so excited. He was really just mad about the fact that I said 100% wrong because he was sure he had it right! Kameron can always make us laugh. Misi also called his mom and told his brothers. They were pretty excited but thought it was surely going to be a boy! We are happy either way! We just feel very blessed to have a healthy and strong baby, and can't wait for her arrival. We are beginning to finalize a name for her...so I will post again when we have it all figured out! Here are a couple of the pics she gave us today..not a whole lot but kind of fun.

We are so excited for "our" little girl to come! I can hardly wait now to see those big eyes and beautiful skin!

It's time to move home so she has some cousins to play with and a Grandma, Great Grandma and Great-great Grandma to spoil her!

Grandpa Landon was so cute and asked if you were okay and if you had anywhere to live yet. I told him that I hoped he was okay being the only boy in a 5th generation picture of all girls! ;o)

Love you, honey, we are so proud of you!

Your family is already outnumbered by boys so this is perfect. Hooray for having a little girl! Congratulations again!
