I knew it...

It's a girl!!
image credit: unknown
Another girl!!
More drama, more dresses, more curls, more tears, more Dora, more dress up, more cuteness, more pink, more frills, more silliness, more loves... did I mention drama?
Another princess.

Yesterday Collin and I would look at each other and just start laughing.
Of course another girl!! I couldn't picture it any other way.

Being the second of three girls in my family... I know exactly what's ahead of me. scared. ;)

congratulations! I have 2 little girls and truly enjoy it! While they are little dressing them in matching outfits is so fun! As they grow up they aren't willing to do that so much anymore.

Cori said...

Congratulations! I have 3 girls and yes, there is definitely more drama. ;)

{Linds} said...

Grace said...

Congratulations! More cuteness. Grace xoxo

CONGRATS!!

Stef said...

Yay!!! I was selfishly hoping for a girl for you. I have three girls, too, and it's all drama all the time. But so much fun!!! Congratulations!

Sara said...

Congrats! Tell Collin some people are just meant to be fathers of girls...my dad, my sister's husband, LOL! You are a perfect mother of girls as well!

Kirsten said...

Here is another shout out from a mother of three girls, ages 4, 2 and 6 months. It's awesome and crazy. Yay for girls!
Love, Kirsten and her little ladies, Eliot, Quincy and Emerson

As a mother of 5 daughters, I count it one of the tenderest mercies in my life that we were sent girls. With my hubby, who knows what we would have created had we had boys! :)

Ohhhhhhh!!!! COngratulations to you. Little girls are the sweetness of life. I have only one, sandwiched between 2 boys. I wish, I wish, I wish that I could've given my daughter a sister. How lucky your girls are to have 3. Congrats!!!

DeAnna said...

Congratulations! On my mother's side there is a whole generation of girls - me and my three cousins - not a single boy was born between my mom and her three brothers. Two of my cousins and I have children so far, and all 5 are boys! Go figure ;D

Kim said...

Congratulations.

I'm the youngest of three girls, so I can sympthize with this baby! What a blessing though! Congratulations!

Michelle said...

congrats on another baby girl. such a blessing!!!!

My DH has 3 girls, the oldest is almost 12 and the twins are 9.....so we know all about the drama in this house. I hope it doesn't get worse....lol, I have a feeling it will though.

Enjoy your 3 beauties

melissa said...

#4 could be your boy!!! Congrats on the new baby girl!

tania smith said...

happy happy day! Congratulations on your growing sisterhood! I am 33 weeks and eager to find out what we are having! This is baby #3 and we have a girl & boy so far. You should ask your daughters what they think you should name the baby. So far my children want to name it Ginger if it's a girl so they can call her Ginger-cookie, lol. Leave it to children to think of funny stuff...

Dayami said...

aaawww how sweet is that????!! CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU AND ALL YOUR FAMILY!!! I was hoping for a boy but I think a baby girl is PERFECT!!!

Amanda said...

Congratulations! (poor Collin!) :)

Amy said...

Congrats!!!!! Just an fyi...I think my two boys can dish out more drama than 1 girl!! No lie!!! I call him "queeny" when the oldest gets dramatic!! hahah

Kelly said...

Congratulations on another girl!

Dawn said...

I could NOT wait to get home from work today so I could check the news on your blog. As soon as I read the initial "I KNEW IT"... I just had a huge smile. Congratulations & Best Wishes! So happy for your family!

tccba said...

Enjoy it! I have three boys, so I have no pink and lace. Although they did all agree recently to let me take pictures of them in skirts from the waist down, so I got to pretend for a minute.

K said...

Congratulations! I can't wait to see more tutus, glitter, and dress up from you! Your daughters are precious and this one will be to... it would be impossible to not be!

Best wishes to you! Hugs and kisses.

xoxo - K

Ashlee @ I'm Topsy Turvy said...

As the oldest of 3 girls I have to say I LOVED it! We're still best friends to this day. A brother would have messed it all up! But as a mom with 2 and 2 I have to say Boys are pretty fun too, but my girls have a very different childhood with brothers than I did! It was fun to meet you at Evo! Wish I could have attended the Craft hands on class along with the Food session! They need to repeat the amazing stuff so I can attend it all!

Alex said...

Congrats! I come from a family of 5 girls. So far, my mom has 9 grandaughters and last year we were blessed to finally welcome a boy into the family from one of my younger sisters. You can bet he is definitely spoiled. I hope you celebrate with some strawberry shortcake! Have a great week!

juliescrapbook said...

Wow. Poor hubby!!! Fun times ahead. They are all so cute!!

Emma said...

3 girls is awesome! I have 3 too and would love another x

Debi said...

Honestly I "felt" it was a girl too for some reason. That is great news!!!! Maybe #4 will be a boy! Congrats Lizzy!!!

Renee Zwirek said...

CONGRATS!!!!! Being the second of three girls in my family as well, I can't help but laugh, too...knowing what's ahead. My husband and I look at each other and laugh, too, because with our luck...if we had another baby...yeah, it would be another girl. We keep telling our family that we're good with two...happy and blessed to have our two girls and that's enough for us. (Shocked when my husband told me he has always wanted a family of girls.) More drama...OH YEAH...I hear 'ya. More girl to love...definitely! To You and Collin and your family...much love and blessings! Congrats to the Big Sisters! I strongly believe that you are given what you are given for a reason...God Has A Plan. (And, NO Collin...you're not being tortured...unless you were naughty...hahaha!) Have a great day!

keeshaobrien said...

Congrats!

Mindy said...

SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!! I know how fun 3 little girls are, and I might be crazy, but I wish (hope & pray) for MORE LITTLE GIRLS. I love the life!

Ale said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I wished for a boy since you already have 2 girls but I kind of knew it it was another girl, yay!!! More pink!!!! Which never is enough! :)
Big hugs and Kisses to you and your family!!!! How exciting!!!

Mary and Ryan said...

Sandy said...

YAY! Another girl! I'm so happy for you! I come from a family of 4 girls and the teen years were filled with unbelievable drama. BUT - how wonderful to have sisters - friends no matter what! (Collin will have to wait his turn to get a word in =

Congrats, friend!

josefina said...

Congratulations!!! I know about drama too ;) it makes for interesting and crazy albeit trying times - but wouldn't have it any other way as it's a part of their growth/development and mine too as a mother. Enjoy every minute!

Breeoxd said...

congrats!

Alison Day said...

Congratulations! I have 3 girls too - ages 6, 4 and 15 months. There is definitely more drama (and I'm completely terrified of the teen years) but there is also way more pink, more glitter, more giggles and more snuggles than one family can handle! I really struggled when we found out we were having a third girl but I wouldn't trade her for anything now. I am embracing the tutu's and the pink and so is my husband!
Girls ROCK!!!

Baird Family said...

Congratulations! I'm so excited for you!

Scrappy Girl said...

How exciting! I love my 3 girls! Lots and lots of drama and F.U.N.

chelsea said...

aww yay! three little princesses will be soo much fun. yes there will be drama but i'm sure the sweet times will far outway it.

ps- i just really love your blog. thank you for allowing me to step in a see a little of your world!

Susie Jensen said...

Hi there, Congrats on daughter #3! You guys make such cute girls that it only makes sense. =)

I am expecting daughter #5 in September. Yep...no boys! It's an "only girl club" around here. My husband feels outnumbered, but I know he wouldn't change a thing. It's hard to imagine our family life any other way, even with all of the emotions, drama, and hair bows!

You guys will have a ball with her and she'll be just as perfect as her sisters.

Melinda May said...

Oh how exciting. I feel weird writing to you since we have NEVER met! I am expecting my third girl (in 30 days to be exact) and I couldn't be happier. My husband and I would also laugh at each other when ever we would talk about it!
They both love to watch a game on tv with him though. All dressed up in princess costumes routing for the team.
So cute!
Good Luck and again, Congratulations.

Fan(nie) de scrap said...

Congratulations! 3 girls! Have you a "super power"? All princesses... Just a buzz

Amy said...

haha! So perfect. I guess Collin's blowing up/football experiment didn't change God's mind after all. Some things are just meant to be. You're gonna be GREAT as a mommy of 3 girlies. You're such an inspiration to all of us women following your blog. I can't even imagine how inspiring you must be for your children. BiG Congrats, girlfriend!!

Anonymous said...

Congrats!!!! I have 3 girls myself, just wait till the teen years arrive, drama is an understatement!!!!!. I wouldnt have had it any other way. Enjoy.

Brittany said...

You make pretty girls! xx

Renee S. said...

A lovely addition to a lovely family. Congratulations!

amyp said...

Congratulations on your little girl!! I have 2 boys and my hubby wants a girl. I would love some pink around here!! Again, congrats on your sweet family!

Backwoods Browns said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I know that phrase all TO well! I am 2nd in a line of 7 girls! Every time my parents would tell us they were pregnant we only ever thought it would be a girl! Didn't think Mom and Dad could produce a boy! hehehe! Most of us married sisters are boy makers! Imagine that! I guess we had to even out the ratio!! :D

Elizabeth said...

YES! I knew it all along. I'm so excited to be able to watch another adorable little girl live, love, laugh and cry as she grows into this wonderful, loving family. I'm pregnant, like I've said before, and I too, am expecting a girl! We're thinking of naming it Evelyn, Mandie, Callie or Heidie. What are you thinking? Keep us posted.
Best of luck,
Elizabeth.

Sara said...

CONGRATULATIONS!! That's wonderful!! I'm one of 4 girls so hang on tight & enjoy the ride!! ;)

Lisa said...

congratulations. Yes more DRAMA will be added to your lives. But I'm sure daddy won't mind having another girl to dance with. :)

Anonymous said...

So...Another dramatic girl.Wowza. I feel BAD for you! I'm sure you'll learn to love her. As the youngest of three girls and mother of three girls I know exactly what lies ahead....and it will be a petty road of fights and drama. If you think two girls were bad, you're in for the ride of your life.

Gwendolyn

P.S. I suggest you buy a leash. (JK!)And pick names better than the names my husband chose for my girls; Quiana, Tamsin, and Zayna.

P.P.S. But if you must know, I LOVE the names Rory, Rhiannan, Marcella, Gretchen, Tate, Scout, Quiana, Ilona, Kai, Baila, and of course; GWENDOLYN (!!)

P.P.P.S. Don't take my cruel rants seriously. I'm just poking fun. (Thats what I said to get out of jail.) (JK!)....:)

Anonymous said...

Hello you darlin' gal!!!
Might I suggest that with you're third....YOU SHOULD GET A DOG! Name it Tumbleweed. Or Ranger. Or Rocky. Or Tango. As for baby names there's; (I like 'E' names 'cuz my names Emma.) Ediline, Edolie, Elga, Eliza, ELIZABETH (:]) Evangeline, Eva, Evelyn, Edith, Ethel, and Esther. And, of course, Emma is always an option. (number one on the 2010 most popular girls names.....hint, hint!)

AnnaMarie Ferrell said...

Oh, I'm so happy for you. Love the girlies.

Elisa said...

OMG another little precious!!!
I´m so happy for you and Colin
xoxo

EmmaJ said...

Congratulations! You make beautiful girls so you should be so excited.

Bowman Family said...

That is awesome. With four sisters I understand all the comes with girls. It is such a blast.

Michelle Burry said...

Congratulations, Kartchner family!! What a sweet little blessing!

Kim J. said...

Being the second of three girls, myself, I know exactly what you're in for too. LOL -- Congrats!!

Keila said...

Elizabeth,
OMG can you believe Gwendolyn? I mean honstly..."You should buy a leash" ??? And whats with the jail thing?(Not to be a gossip...sorry,Gwendolyn)Wow. Well, I'm happy for you. You must tell us the name! We....(or, myself...) Are just like you and we can't wait! :) And when the darlin' is born, you have to have to have to post pics!

Charlotte said...

Congratulations!
I am the youngest of 4 girls, I just love having older sisters to look up to, look after me, chat with, cry on their shoulder, borrow clothes off and just have a fantastic time together! We are all grown up and married now but whenever we get together it is so special. Your 3 girls will have so much fun together (and a bit of madness sometime too!)
There's a pic on my blog at the moment if you want to check us all out!

pakosta said...

Congrats!!!!!
I always wanted like 3-5 girls!
The Lord gave me only 2, but it's so fun and full of drama, I probably couldn't handle 3 LOL!
