Christmas Surprise

I had an ultrasound on Tuesday, it was scheduled at the last minute so Aaron wasn't able to come. I didn't want to know the gender of our baby before he did, and so, since Christmas was right around the corner I had the u/s tech write down the gender and seal the paper in an envelope. Contrary to popular belief, I did look away from the screen when the tech got to "that part" and so I was as clueless as Aaron.

I carried the paper around in my purse for TWO WHOLE DAYS and it nagged at me the whole time. But I was a good girl and waited until Christmas to open it.

The note is now posted on our fridge and reads:

"Congratulations. Its a Girl."

We were both expecting a boy - but are thrilled to be having another girl. Yeah!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I think two girls are a fantastic way to begin a family!!! (I always tell Cory that I hope that our 2nd is a girl! Sisters are just the best!)

I was thinking about it, and...you will now know for a fact who is REALLY cleaning the bedroom when you ask if they are BOTH helping.
