it's a...

GIRL!!! i must say, thomas and i were both quite surprised at the news. even though early on i felt very strongly about the baby being a girl, either way would have been fine with me. any baby would be LUCKY to be in this fam damily


a couple of nights ago i had a dream that i was dating darth vader. and from the looks of this ultrasound picture, i wasn't just dating him.



her profile. she was moving her little mouth the whole time and she was playing with her fingers and showing us all her toes. it was very sweet. attention hog. i could almost hear her little voice through the machine "look at me! look at me! i'm on TV!" she must get that from thomas.

as far as girl names go, that has never been a question. my first girl has been miss scarlett since i was 11 years old. the middle name is entirely up to thomas since i sort of told him what her first name would be.

about a week ago i was in wal-mart and i saw the PERFECT dress *justincase* it was a girl. i picked it up on the way home from the doctor today.


















do you see the similarities? i haven't found the hat yet. just give me some time.



not to be left out, big brother reagan helped me by plunging BOTH toilets this morning. he was very proud of himself. however, he was not that amused by the ultrasound machine and really wanted to play with the light switch at the doctor's office.

YAY!! Congrats on the news of the little girl. Mine has only been here for a week but already I just think girls are so much fun. Plus shopping for girls is 10 times better. :) I'm impressed you have a name picked out already. We were still deciding on a name when I was in labor.

A GIRL?!?! Wow, all must be right in the world - Heidi is finally getting her girl! Do you think the boys can handle more estrogen in the house???

Any ideas on what Thomas is thinking of for a middle name? My only suggestion is to avoid anything that starts with an O. I don't think Scarlett would be thrilled to have the initals S.O.S.!

Congrats again you guys!
