No, I didn’t bake a pink or blue cake to show you. I don’t have any fancy, crafty pinteresty reveal planned. This craft-challenged gal is just gonna straight up tell you the news! Well, after a little background story:
Have I ever told you about how my husband is a gender prediction wizard? He was NEVER wrong until he guessed “boy” for some friends of ours a couple of months ago and we were all shocked to find out that despite Daniel’s prediction, they were having a girl. I think he had guessed 12 babies right in a row.
I, on the other hand, never fail to be wrong, at least about predicting what my babies are. I was pretty sure Benjamin was an Eleanor and that Lucy was a John Paul. This time, because my pregnancy has been like my first (really horrible morning sickness), I was convinced we were having another boy. I hadn’t even really imagined what it would be like to have another girl next.
So….I was SHOCKED when the ultrasound tech said, “GIRL!” She looks healthy and happy and beautiful! We are thrilled. Benjamin hasn’t quite come to terms with the fact that he’s not getting a baby brother. He says the baby just hasn’t grown a penis yet and that he’s going to call him Fred. Oh well. We’ll get there.
I never got to have a sister and I’m so excited that Lucy will have one to be besties with!
Praise God for the gift of another healthy little girl baby! I still haven’t wrapped my head around the awesomeness of this news 🙂
