A long awesome weekend: Part IV

I got a little busy with the husband getting home from a business trip, but I couldn't let another day go by without sharing the excitement from the rest of our long awesome weekend.

Last Friday the husband and I went to the highly anticipated ultrasound.  Everything looks normal and great and right on schedule, and I was also totally surprised to find out it's a GIRL!  Measuring continued while I laid on the table taking it all in.  All of the plans made in my head were suddenly changed since I'd been so sure it was a boy.  It is fun to be surprised, I must say.

We got a bite to eat and then made a trip to a delicious bakery to pick up pink cupcakes to deliver the news to our kids.  We returned to pick them up from time with their cousins and share the news, and Miss A was beyond elated.  Her arms went up in the air with a victorious, "Finally!  A sister!".  The next morning was just as good when she came into my bed grinning, remembering the news of the night before.  The muffin knew all along, and so did the husband.  De-man had to warm up to the idea, but he's getting excited to have a little sister.

Since we received the news, the shopping bug bit.  Luckily, I found some sales too good to pass up.  I've ordered a diaper bag this week.  And crib bedding.  And I can't stop looking at adorable baby girl clothes.  I haven't shopped for baby girl things for 7 years.  I've forgotten how fun it is.  Nesting has started early, and I'm enjoying it.

I'm grateful for this new sweet girl that is growing.  She's pretty mellow, not wanting to be bothered during the ultrasound to move so they could get different angles.  She moves enough to let me know she's there, but not enough to bother me.  I'm hoping this relaxed personality continues once she's in our arms.
