The BABY is a...............

Drumroll, Please!!! Announcement!!!

We are the proud and happy parents to announce we will be adding a.........

GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To our household come the end of June!

Yes, another girl and we are so happy. It just didn't matter, but now we at least know!
Now on with the rest of the planning that must take place in the "next" 20 weeks!
The ultrasound went great and the baby cooperated. And just in case it might not - I chugged-literally- a 20 oz Mt. Dew on the way to the doctors office. No siree, this baby wasn't crossing it's legs and sleeping during this ultrasound. One time chance and I wasn't taking any chances. The funny thing is, I have 100% stayed off of caffeine drinks because of how it had been making me feel and then to drink that all at once was kind of crazy. I made it, but was jittery for a few hours :) The baby is completely healthy as far as an ultrasound can show, which relieved my thinking. Due to this blogging world I have been reading way too much stuff that a PG person should not read about. I honestly thought it was going to be a boy because the heart rate was so drastic from what it was with Lindsey, but I guess "SHE" proved us wrong. Today the heart beat per the ultrasound was 136. Lindsey's heart rate was always around the 160's. They said our baby girl weighs around 10 oz. It was a fun doctors appointment and of course Jonathan and Lindsey came along as well. Lindsey thought it was absolutely great to "see" the baby. Jonathan said she seemed to be really excited about all of it. I think she understands the whole "baby" thing as much as a 2 year old can. She is very excited. Well, enough rambling from me.

Now for the ultrasound pictures :)
There are a total of 8 -different- pictures.
(Yes, I posted everyone they gave me -
because there is family that would like to see these that do not live near us.)

The first four are different shots of the face.


The picture below is of her arms bent up towards her face and her hands covering her face. The elbows are to the left and the hands are to the right

The picture below is of her feet to the left and her legs and you can see the break for the knee area.

The picture below is of her feet - looking at the bottom of them.

And this one - It's a GIRL!
So, now you ALL know and so do we and that makes ME very Happy!
Now I can go with the flow and start acting on my plans because I had different plans for their rooms, etc. Now we don't have to move bedrooms, paint, decorate another bedroom and no new bedding. We will buy a toddler bed for Lindsey since that will fit better into the room for now instead of a twin bed and another chester drawers and we will keep them both in the same room together for now. Of course, if you know me, the baby will be in our room for probably 6 months (at least) until she's too big for the cradle.
PINK IT IS!!

Congratulations!!!! God knows that you can do hair :) You have been such a good Mommy to Lindsey and this baby is going to be loved just the same I can tell. Hey, Mom and Dad are bringing a big bed for the girls room so we are not going to need the toddler bed. It is plastic but cute. Maybe I should call you :)
