Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice...

...that's what little GIRLS are made of!!

That's right, She's a SHE! I can't say I was super surprised, since I've had the feeling of a girl the whole time.

A common question everyone asked me was "What do you want it to be?" I always gave the PC answer of "As long as its healthy, i don't care" and I was pretty sure I meant it. After seeing her on the ultrasound and realizing that all her parts were in the right place and growing at the right place, it really confirmed what I had been saying the whole time. I am just SOOO grateful that I could see each individual bone in her fingers, all in the right places. Everything looked perfect and she even gave us a big "thumbs up" at one point. :) I'll post the picture when I remember to scan them. :)

So, thank you to everyone for their well wishes. Now that i know she's a she, it's all the more real. Now I keep picturing the 3 year old version of her. I can see her long flowing black/brown hair and beautiful blue eyes. I'm praying for her daddy's complexion... and if she's lucky, she'll have the mailman's nose. :)

Baby Girl, I can't wait to meet you!!

So, you got any names picked out? Alixandra is a nice one I hear - or you might consider my word verification: "puggie."

Congrats! Alix predicted that? Wow she sure is psychotic. Oh sorry, I guess that's physic?

Alix said...

Actually, Garret, I predicted a boy. But since no one ever reads my comments, I figured I could get away with a bold faced lie.

Mandi didn't call me on it and neither did you. Odd.

Alicia -

I read and subscribe to comments, hence why I know that you've babbled on yet again. Perhaps you're just not that memorable?

- Greg

I thought about calling you on it, Alix, and also rubbing it in that Garret knew the day before, since it was posted on FB on tuesday evening. But since you don't have Facebook, you didn't see that. ;) BUT i was feeling a little giddy, with the girl and all, and decided i would be nice! :) :)
