It's a.....

GIRL!!!! We didn't get any good photos of the gender shot, but we did get a good look and the US tech said she was pretty dang sure about the gender. But here is a cute profile picture of her. We never got one with Lyla so it's fun to have this one. She has my ski-jump nose.



I am SOOOOO excited that we're having a girl because.....
1) Lyla will have a sister!!!
2) We'll be the first in Nate's family to have more than 1 girl! I was worried about that small detail!
3) We don't have to buy a bunch of new clothes!
4) I am going to decorate the kids room SOO GIRLY it's not even funny! Right now it is painted blue (from previous owner) and this will be changed. :-D
5) I have so many cute girly ideas for this one that I never did with Lyla.
6) Matching outfits. Yes, I will tortue my girls with this and they will love it... because they are girls.
7) Nate is going to have his hands full!!!
8) I just really wanted a girl but I didn't think I'd be lucky enough to have more than 1!

So, as far as the health and everything... I was pretty sure everything looks good. The US tech wasn't supposed to tell us anything, but she was really nice. We told her about Lyla with her clubfoot and so she took extra time looking at the feet just to make sure. For sure one is not clubbed and I think the other isn't either, but she didn't get as good of a look at it. But the doctor called the day after and said that as far as they can tell, everything looks good!

So, yeah! Now we gotta prepare for a house full of estrogen!!

AAAHHH!! I am so excited! I hadn't even thought about the fact that no one in our family has more than one girl...way to go you guys! They are going to be the cutest little dolls ever!
And definitely do the matching clothes...I still want to do that with Ty and Cam...but Scott is putting his foot down. But sometimes I still do it when he is at work :) LOVE IT!

I amd the only grandchild on either side of my family that has a sister and I am so happy I do! It is the BEST (especially at this age) and I am sure Lyla will love having a little sister. Yes, she may not love the matching outfits (I know I didn't) but you have to do it! And you have to girly up their rooms! Congrats! We are so happy for you guys :)

I'm so happy for you!! I thought you were going to have a girl. :) And I bet the technician recommended a level 2 ultrasound just because she thought you outta have one because of Lyla's history (not because there's anything wrong with this one though). We had a level 2 ultrasound with Genevieve because of her 2 vessel umbilical cord (supposed to be 3) even though the chances of anything wrong were slim. Medical people like to cover all grounds, just to make sure. :) Congratulations!!!
