Good News

We're having a baby girl! Everything looked great on the ultrasound! Phew! We don't always get what we want in life, but it sure feels good when we do.

During tuck-in time tonight, Daniel asked me about the appointment.

Daniel: "Did the camera show you pictures of the baby?"

Mommy: "Yes, it was sort of like a camera."

Daniel: "What did she look like?"

Mommy: "Well, we couldn't really see what she looked like, but we could tell that she's a girl, and that she's growing well."

Daniel: "Was she wearing pretty clothes?"

Mommy (laughing): "No, babies are naked in their mommy's tummy!"

Daniel (giggling): "Naked! She can't be naked. Why can't your stomach make her some clothes?"

Then he put his ear to my tummy, and the baby promptly kicked him! That sure made it all seem real to him. I think he's smitten with his new baby sister now, pretty clothes notwithstanding.

Both boys seemed slightly disappointed at first, when told they were having a baby sister, but some day they'll be happily accompanying their sisters on dates, protecting them from the wrong type of boys, and faithfully reporting back to us. God's plan is always so brilliant, so good. It'll be great. Until the girls' wedding fees come at us, anyway. lol

Yay! Congratulations. I love hearing the things your boys say too. Get to work on some pretty clothes, tummy!
