GIRL! Another GIRL! And we couldn't be more excited. :) So sorry I didn't post sooner, Ross didn't go back to work after the appointment at 2 so we raced home and then took off to the lake where some friends from our ward live, to go wakeboarding (future post with pictures to come of course.) Then all day today, Ross has had the computer to write a talk he has to give in two different wards tomorrow. Plus we were supposed to have someone come look at our house so I cleaned like a mad woman all morning, just to find out at 2:30 that they were no longer coming at 3:00....so so bummed. Anyway, the day's been another busy one and we just got in from swimming at Lizzie and Shad's pool, put Sophia to bed, and Ross disappeared (I think to read over his talk in the bedroom where I couldn't hear him :)) so I snuck over to his corner and commandeered the computer for a moment. There's so many of you I wanted to call and tell the news to first, but I've decided if I wait, at my rate I'll never get around to it, so it's time to post.
So back to the news.... come November, we are indeed, going to have two gorgeous girls, a little under 2 years and three months apart, almost the exact distance of Lacy and I! As much as I want a boy some day, I could not have asked for more. I wanted so badly for Sophia to have what I had growing up and all I can think about now is matching Sunday dresses (I write that knowing that half of you will HATE the idea of matching children), and a little girl's room with two little beds and a killer doll-house. I couldn't fall asleep last night because I just kept trying to imagine how I could have a new baby girl growing inside that is NOT Sophia. She could look totally different! She could have fewer rolls (gasp- I hope not), she might be a horrible sleeper at night, but a mellow little angel when awake. I might have to learn everything all over again! I already can't remember how I did it for those first months, it's all a blur! Oh I hope it comes back.
We are so excited to be able to say, "the girls" when referring to our little ones. Two children?! The whole thing is still nuts to me.
