It's a girl!

Hi!! I am sitting at the airport waiting to board my plane to head onto Houston and party with all the other scrappers at CKC!! I am so excited! Make sure if you are going you come find me and say hello!


I have some exciting news that I have been dieing to share with you! Avery is going to be a big sister! And not only that, we found out a couple days ago that...


It' s a Girl!!

Yay!! We are so excited and don't really know what we are getting into, having 2 kiddos running around but we are half way there to holding another sweet, baby girl!

I was certain that it was a boy until Tuesday morning when I woke up and was laying in bed thinking about the ultrasound and all of a sudden I knew it was a girl! I didn't say anything because who wants their motherly intuition to be wrong:) It's always so amazing once you see the baby that's in your belly on the screen. Wow! Such a miracle!


Poor Collin is now officially out numbered by drama and curls.



PS I have a new toy. It's a tiny camcorder! So be prepared for some fun footage from Houston!

So great to meet you IRL yesterday at CKC! You are as endearing as I thought you would be!

I SAW you pregnant, and still can't believe it! You are so tiny! Remember, you promised me you would be "FAT" next time I saw you!

Stop on by scrappyarts.net if you get the time!

kristen said...

so you are a sneaky one! i looked back and you knew you were pregnant on the day that you shared Colbie Caillat's Capri song with us, huh? huge congrats...what a year you are having! i shared the capri song with my girlfriends a while back and this week one of them sent it back asking us to listen to the words...that's how she told us she is pregnant with #3! too fun...enjoy the girls...i'm a mom of three boys and although i can't relate to the girly girl stuff i will say that siblings of the same sex has been an amazing experience!
