Sugar & Spice OR Snails & Puppy Dog Tails

The reason I've hesitated with this post is because it doesn't seem real and I keep thinking at the next appointment we'll find out a different sex.

This is what happened a couple weeks ago. My mom babysat BM while we went to the doctor. Before we left she gave us $20 to buy something for the new baby.

As the doctor was doing the ultrasound, he said, "I told you my guess last time was a boy, right?"

Roos': "No, you said girl."

He then moved the wand around and said, "Well, it's a boy."

As he kept moving the wand around more, "No, it's a girl."

Roos': "So what is it?"

Doctor: "Girl."

Roos': "How sure are you?"

Doctor: "99.5%."

We were of course very excited but like I said it just doesn't seem real, even now. We stopped at Kid to Kid (a consignment store for children's clothing & toys) and spent the money my mom gave us. HeRoos LOVES to torture my mom. I told him to go easy on her so this is what he did when we got home.

He pulled the items one by one out of the bag and said, "This is what we got (very long pause)....

"This is what we got the new baby."

Then my mom unfolded it and got very excited.

"And we got this."

We are thrilled for BM to have a baby sister. I am looking forward to decorating her room but I think I'll wait until after the next appointment, just to be on the safe side. :)

Cute. Congratulations. We're having a boy, so who knows, maybe in about 16 years they can go out or something.
