Happy New Year! It's a GIRL!
What a whirlwind the holidays were. Not only did we have the typical holiday madness, but we got to experience the joy of finding out that we are bringing a little girl into this world.
We ended up opening our envelope Christmas Eve, just the two of us. The excitement and anticipation had built up so much that we could hardly stand to wait another minute! It was such a surreal moment. The doctor had written a note that read "Two lines between legs GIRL, Merry Christmas:)". She had written GIRL large enough that both of us honed in on that life-changing word at the same time. Nothing could have been more amazing.
Inside the envelope were three pretty distinct pictures of her girl parts. The doc had them labelled for us and everything -- just in case.
Since then we have spent a lot of time in the nursery, putting together furniture, painting, putting up wainscoting, and I've been making adhesive vinyl wall art. Pics to come...
