Knock, knock, who's in there? {Gender Reveal!!}

I finally convinced Declan to let me get an early gender results ultrasound. We have a really awesome place pretty local, that's been in business for a very long time, and the tech has a 7 year record of never being wrong from 15 weeks on. It's pretty awesome.

For some reason, this pregnancy I have been majorly impatient. I just needed to know who was in there. I had my momma gut feeling....and it turned out....that instinct was right.

Because Miss Emeline is going to have a.....

I can't even put words to my joy these past two days. Big, huge, smiles. Lots of chatter to Emeline about her baby sister. Lots of dreaming of being a momma to two girls. A lifelong gift in a sister that my girls(!!!) will have.

Having a sister has been one of the best gifts in my life. I can't really even type about it in detail without a flood of emotions. I know I can't wish the same relationship I have with my sister on my daughters, but I can hope and pray they find the same heart to heart connection that me and my sister have.

So, cheers. And big, huge, smiles from me to you, today.

Happy Thursday :)

  3. Congrats! So happy for you and your growing family! I started reading your blog (and your sisters blog) about a month ago and I always look forward to reading what you all have to say. I especially found your weight loss posts to be truly motivating. I am on my own weight loss journey and at times it can feel very lonely, however I know it's not and that it can be done and you two are proof of that. Keep up the good work and congrats again!

  16. I am so excited for you! Having 2 girls so so much fun! When we went to find out the gender of the twinsies, I just knew there were at least one of each in there if not both boys. We were all very surprised (I was giddy, actually) that we were having TWO girls! I had so much fun designing and decorating their very girly nursery. :)

    I have heard stories of people who were told were having a boy or girl and it turned out to be the opposite bc they had an early gender scan...
