Sweet Pea's First Pics

When I was pregnant with both of my girls, we decided not to find out with either one. It was very exciting to have that big announcement: It's a....! Although, I have to say, with Katie it was a lot harder not knowing (but definitely worth it). However, this time, knowing it is our last one, we just had to know. Being able to prepare the baby's room is a big plus. But at the same time, I also wanted to give myself a few months to mentally prepare. You see, when Katie was born, I was almost 99% sure she was a boy. And of course I was glad that she was healthy and beautiful, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't a wee bit disappointed that she wasn't a boy in those first few moments. Of course now, I couldn't be happier. The two girls are great companions, and I enjoy watching them play and learn from each other. Needless, to say we decided to find out the sex of our baby.

I love guessing games though. So, before I make the big announcement, I want you to tell me what you think we are having. Are we going to be swimming in sugar and spice like Jenny, or entering into the world of snails and toads? I will leave you with some pictures of our little one, and then share our news in a couple days (a little squirming is good for the soul). Of course no guessing if you actually do know, and you know who you are!

Our baby's profile, it had it's mouth open almost the whole time! Definitely daddy's child!

My first 3D ultrasound, again baby's mouth is open!


This picture is my favorite. Although it might be harder to tell, the baby has it's lil' hand in front of it's face, and the other arm by the side of it's head. I'm in love already!

Oh Sarah! We felt the same way with our last one. We just had to know. It was nice to know that we were having a girl after 3 boys. I think you are having a boy. However, a girl would definitely add to the playmates! My boys just love their sister!
Just so glad to hear the baby is healthy!

Hey, there aren't any pictures of boy OR girl parts - how is one supposed to guess based on a head shot? :) If it wasn't 1 in the morning where you live right this minute, I'd be dialing your number.

Oh, the suspense... I'm guessing a girl.

BTW-- I have been wrong almost 100% of the time.

How exciting to get a 3D ultrasound! Your baby is precious and yes, I can tell that you are already in love.

OK, so that someone else I know is in my boat, I vote for a girl. Not like this is a democracy, but with 50/50 chances, I'll go with girl. We would have loved a boy so that Dave could have that special father-son bond with one of his children like he had with his dad. But the convenience of having 3 girls (hand-me downs!) and watching them bond over princess dresses and tea parties is priceless. Either way, I know that 3rd little one of yours will be showered with love!

I'm guessing girl. Can't wait to hear! HOpe you are doing well!

I'm going with boy.

Boy, boy, boy.

Not that you're having 3 boys, just keep thinking boy, boy, boy. :)

But like Emily, I am almost always wrong. Except with my own kids.

BTW, we were surprised with Jack and Lincoln, and found out with Max. Isn't it SO COOL getting to experience it both ways! I think people miss out who only do it one way or the other.
