Meet Our Baby

I have a lot of admiration for couples that wait to find out the sex of their child until the day of delivery. It shows so much restraint. To be able to wait and wonder who the child growing inside a giant belly is for 9 months only to be surprised at the moment that child emerges is such a wonderful experience to share. I admire that. JD and I could never do it. If waiting means strength and self-control, then we are weak and unrestrained. We are planners. We need to know what the name will be, what color the nursery will be, whether we'll be investing in ballet slippers or baseball mitts. We need to know the sex as soon as possible. Today we found out.

Meet our new baby girl.


























GIRL!!!!!!

I woke up feeling an overwhelming sense of girl today. I was calm and relaxed, I even prayed for her as a her this morning. It's weird, but I just knew. JD is shocked and happy, I am relieved and happy. We are the parents of 2 precious daughters. Now I must go pick out nursery colors and order ballet slippers x2. We have girls, after all.

  2. Congrats Aly! I've been blog stalking all day, waiting to hear the news. I'm so happy for you and your family. I think there's something super special about having same sex children. Like, I love the fact that I have 2 boys who will grow up together being great pals. I wish the same for you and your little ladies! God Bless.

  5. Your pregnancy journal humor entertains me. I love your perspective. I wanted to add that Penelope won't care what color her nursery is. She won't even care that she has a nursery. Babies, as I know you know, from reading your blog, care far more about their mothers warm arms and skin-to-skin.

  11. Hi there, I stumbled across your blog and was hooked lol. I have an 11 year old daughter and when we found out we were expecting our second child last year I was the same way thinking I could only imagine being the mom of girls (after all I only had a girl for 11 years!) and honestly I wanted another girl. But my little guy is here, well not so little now, he is 14 months but I cant imagine having it any other way. You get what you need, thats what I think. And its not at all selfish to want one or the other!
    I have a blog too Its www.thisfrugalfamily@blogspot.com and I also have an etsy store and blog :) your hats are adorable btw.
