It's a ...



Girl! The ultrasound tech said it's a girl. Then she said, see the white lines? So I guess that means she's pretty sure :) We're excited! We hope she and Molly will be good friends (at some point!) and it's nice that we have a whole bunch of girly stuff already!

As far as the water drinking went, I had to cheat because I thought I was going to die! I couldn't sit or stand or do anything, so I used the bathroom, but didn't totally empty my bladder and it all worked out just fine! There's no way I could have laid still for the exam if I was in the state I was when we arrived!

Last night we had our little gender reveal party in addition to celebrating mine and Todd's birthdays. We had everyone vote what they thought we each were having.


Then Nat and I each opened a gift! And there you have it--two baby girls coming in February!
Nat made these adorable little cake pops that were pink and blue but unfortunately I didn't get a pic! They turned out so cute! Thanks Nat! These outfits are from Becky. She was so cute. She brought gifts for our new babies. To cover her bases she brought two boy and two girl gifts just in case. She got us these cute outfits with matching bows. What a sweetheart!

Yum! We had chocolate brownie trifle for dessert! Thanks for your recipe Brooke!

The birthday kids. Todd's birthday was on Tuesday and mine was yesterday. It was a fun day! Thanks everyone for the calls, texts, gifts and birthday wishes!

I am so excited for you to have a girl. They are so much fun. It will be so fun for Molly to have a sister. It is also so fun you and Nat will both have a girl. Cousins are so fun. =0) They think ours is a boy, but I am still not sure I believe them. I was only 15+ weeks. I will have my 20 week next month that should solidify it all. =0) Congrats and Happy B-day to you and Todd. Take care.

How fun! Of course I would've been happy with a boy but it's been nice to have two girls together. You already have all the stuff and hopefully one day they'll be best friends (I'm still waiting for that day but I think it's right around the corner!)!!!

P.S. Happy belated birthday!!!!
