Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

That's what our little GIRL is made of!!  Matt and I had our big growth/anatomy ultrasound this morning, which I'm so glad is over because it's been making me a nervous wreck for weeks.  In a nutshell, everything went perfectly.  We found out our little one in there is definitely a girl....just like my intuition has been telling me since about week 7 or 8.  (Thank goodness or I'd have some explaining to do to my son on why I've been calling him "her" for the last 2 1/2 months!) 

Our princess looked perfect.  Everything was measuring right on track, with most things measuring a few days ahead, which is great.  All of her organs, placenta and blood flow looked perfect.  Whew!  She was pretty shy about showing her girl parts, but finally at the end of the ultrasound (and much coaxing from my fabulous ultrasonographer, Colleen) Little Miss kicked a leg out to the side and those infamous 3 lines were revealed!  It's a little surreal.  Even though I have thought it was a girl in there, it's still hard to believe it's true.  I'm so thankful to the good Lord that she's healthy and growing!!

I won't bore you with all the pictures of her different parts, but I'll leave you with her sweet (albeit Skeletor-like) face and her "proof."


  1. YAY! How exciting! A BIG congrats to you both.

  2. I am so happy for you and Matt!!!! Peytonn still thinks her name needs to be "Sister."
