It's a...

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.

Ever since you said you were going to find out Friday, I've been checking to see if you did! Congratulations to all 3 of you!! 2 little girls will be the cutest and I love to do matching dresses. So fun!

How super exciting! Congratulations to you and Ross and Sophia. Growing up with a sister close in age can be such a great thing. I know I loved it.

I am so happy for you. With four girls, I feel so blessed everyday. Even though I hope you someday have a boy, girls are so precious. My mom, when she tries to console me over not having a boy, tells me this rhyme: a son is a son 'til he takes a wife, but a daughter is a daughter all her life. Besides, Sophia has too cute of a wardrobe to not see it again. So congratulations to girl power!

Like Denae, I've been checking regularly too so I was thrilled to hear the news! I too, have a little sister that's 2 years younger than me and there is nothing better than a sister that is close in age to you. I agree, hopefully you have a boy someday but two girls is going to be so fun. We're so excited for you, Ross & Sophia!

Congratulations! So excited to hear that you're having another girl. I'm certain that #2 will be as gorgeous as Sophia. :) Having 2 kids is a lot of fun. I know that you'll be a great Mom! Still waiting to see cute prego pics...

YEA!! Yea for more girls in the Biesinger home. You were right! I'm so happy for you Lillie. I love matching clothes on siblings too so I'm excited to see the pictures. Hooray, hooray, hooray.
Congrats.
PS: This post totally made me want to be pregnant again. Oh dear.

I love that you're excited to call your children "the girls." That's probably what would be my favorite part of the whole thing. I love it. Congratulations. I bet the whole pending baby thing feels more real when you suddenly have so much more ammunition for your daydreams. CONGRATULATIONS

That is so cool! I'm so happy for you! When you said "we will have 2 girls in november" I thought you meant you were having twins! ha. I love matching girls- so who cares what other people think- and that will be so cool to say "our girls" plural! That is so exciting.

Just wanted to say congrats again on the little one. My sister and I are 13 months apart and sisters are definately the best. We've been best friends our whole lives and I don't know what I'd do without her. I think girls should always come in pairs. And I can't tell you how many pics I have of my sister and me in matching dresses. I can't wait until you really start to look prego. You're going to be so cute. How fun!

Who DOESN'T like matching things on little girls? Oh Lillie, this is SO exciting. I have thought about you and Lacy in deciding whether I would vote boy or girl (Yes, I hold a lot of clout here), and am so glad that Sophia will get to be big sister to Baby Biesinger #2. Oh, let's talk names.. what are you thinking?

Congrats on this exciting news!!!
