The Tie Breaker

The whole crew tagged along for my ultrasound today to hear the big verdict. Well, not everyone tagged along willingly. Drew begged me to let him stay with the Waddells and wanted me just to tell him what it was. He decided to be a happy camper once he saw the images of this sweet baby.

Mallory saw this one and kept saying, "It's waving to us! Hi baby! I love you!"

Here is a a sweet picture of the feet.
We are all tickled pink to find out we are having a GIRL! Mallory, who has been insisting it's a girl this whole time immediately said, "I think it's a boy." Ross and Elizabeth are both happy. They didn't mind what it was. Drew simply wanted a pizza, but he will eventually be just as pleased to get a baby sister. I think.
I thought it was a girl all along, although I would have loved a precious little boy as well. A short time before we found out that a baby would be joining our family, I had a very vivid dream about a little girl. It was the kind of dream that seems so real. I dreamt that a tiny little girl was walking around in our bedroom. It was so real that I woke up to find myself walking around our bedroom and hallway looking for her. It took me a minute to realize that she had indeed been in my dream. I truly believe this little girl is meant to be a part of our family, and I can't wait to meet her in December!
