It's A.....

I know a lot of our friends and family already know what we are having due to my website, and that funky little invention called Facebook... My phone was lit up like a Christmas tree from 2pm until just a little while ago.

It was a very emotional day for us. First we learned we were expecting a very healthy baby. Everything looked awesome. Heart, kidneys, stomach, size, brain, growth... all right where they should be. I was relieved that the great ultrasound tech (that also was the one we had when we found out what Ben was 2 years ago) was friendly and nice... There is nothing worse than a mean, or rude ultrasound tech, especially for such a special occasion for your family.

She knew we were very anxiously awaiting the gender by the time the last couple minutes rolled around. She calculated all the measurements, to make sure baby was on point, while she encouraged me to "wake" the baby up to get a nice shot. I jiggled #3 around a little bit, and played the poking game that has been a favorite with all 3 children, especially since I can feel #3 poking back now.

She looked around, scanned, scanned, and I told Will to get our video camera ready to catch the big moment. She looked at us, and asked if we were ready and turned the monitor closer to us....

Congratulations... and she let me see for myself, and call it out... A GIRL!

I think I can get some kind of movie award for my reaction too!

The music was actually located all the way at the bottom of the page, but I removed it anyways... It was old :)
