Surprise! It's a...

Last Wednesday, we finally got to have our second ultrasound.  We planned a little family/neighbor BBQ over the weekend to spill the beans, sort of a gender-reveal party (but very low key).  Let's just say, all of my hunches, dreams, old wives' tale predictors were WRONG!






Sisters really are the BEST.

Another girl! Aurora is over the moon...we are too, of course, but we felt the whole time like it was going to be a boy, so we were surprised!  We have a name picked out, and we've shared it with some family, but I think I'll keep it there until September when she's born.

Having a sister so close in age has been one of the greatest blessings of my life--I can't wait to see our two (well, FOUR!) girls together.  Q is the most amazing Dad, and I can't wait to see him with another tiny one! It's finally starting to sink in (well, except for my belly--that's poking out!) and feel real.

Hoping to do a full 20 week update later this week, but just wanted to share our news! We're still coming down from a special weekend of friends and family and food and love.

xo,
Amanda

    I had a feeling it was a girl! I saw a picture of you and Q on Facebook a few weeks ago and the thought just came to me, "Soon they'll have 4 girls!" Then I realized that the sex of the baby was not yet known. I'd like to call it magical thinking, but then again, I did have a 50% of being right. <3

  3. awww. I used to beg for a sister but never got one. It was lonely being without one, so I am glad your daughter will have one and that you will understand what it is like to have a sister so you can all have a good way of getting along, hopefully hehehehe. Congratulations to you!

    1. Hi Victoria! I am so glad too...I didn't realize how glad until the ultrasound tech finally announced it! My husband would still have loved a boy, but I think a girl is the best...xo
