It's a...!

Hi, everyone! Chet and I are so excited to let you know that we're having a little girl! We had an ultrasound at 8:00 a.m. today, and it went very well. Before we even started, the sonographer asked if we wanted to know the sex...we emphatically answered, "Yes!". She also explained to us that girls are a little more difficult to determine than boys, but 45 minutes later there were no signs of little boy parts, and she said she was 98% sure it was a girl! She also took several pictures of all of the organs and the spine, and she said everything looked great. My next OB/GYN appointment is October 6th.

After the ultrasound, Chet suggested going to Babies 'R' Us to look around. We hadn't looked at or shopped for any baby items since we found out we were pregnant...mostly because we wanted to get our move out of the way and because I would go too crazy trying to mentally decorate a room when I didn't know the sex! Anyway, we had fun, and can't wait to continue spreading the news.

Can't wait to hear what y'all think!
