Coming Soon. . .

Well, not that soon. . .but we have known since the end of March. We have had two ultrasounds and everything looked great. The first was 1 1/2 weeks ago. At that point we just saw a heartbeat and a little blob, about 1 cm long. Today we had the second. In 1 1/2 weeks things have changed. The little thing was 1.88 cm long and we could see the little arms and legs waving. When we got home we showed Grace. We didn't tell her anything except for "do you want to see the picture of the baby?" She grabbed it, smiled and said "It's a girl." Later we told her it might be a boy. She wasn't happy with that comment so she looked at us sternly and declared "No, its a girl!" I asked her what its name was going to be and she said Pinky. She has known about the baby for awhile now. . . in fact she told her gymnastics teacher that I was at home taking a nap because I had a baby in my belly. Priceless I say, and totally unprompted and straight from her little mouth. So there you have it. Our little secret revealed.
