We are so excited to be having a baby girl! Most importantly though everything looks good with me and baby being healthy and growing appropriately. Music to my ears.
Now you may recall that we live far away from family. FAR. And we are trying to make this new season in our life as special as it can be while keeping the family and friends back home involved as much as we can. And again some news just isn't as much fun to tell on the phone. So...I came up with a plan.
Matt and I went out and bought boy and girl items as pictured here:
We of course went with the girl items :)
And here is their reaction...all smiles and joy.
She had a bit different reaction...
...wait for it...
...and then sheer excitement.
Yes, she may have screamed and then cried. And I caught it all on camera.
Somehow both our families knew it was a girl. I'm not sure how, maybe they wished it upon us. But I'm completely ok with that. And as for the name Madelyn Grace, we just love it. We'll be calling her Maddie.
And because I'm a proud parent, here are some photos from 20 weeks for your enjoyment. :) Maybe the last pictures until we meet her.
