Baby what?

This morning Freddy and I went to the doctor for the second half of my screening. I stopped by Starbucks for a little caffeine before hand. I wanted to make sure that this baby was moving around and showing off his or her parts. How disappointing would it have been to have to leave not knowing what we were having because someone wouldn't uncross their legs?!

I asked the sonographer if I could guess the gender. After all, I was there when Jessica found out the twins' genders so I am practically an expert. Three lines = girl and "turtle" = boy.

So I guess boy.

And I guess wrong.

We are having a GIRL!!! Man, is Freddy in trouble!

The doctor said that she is beautiful and perfect - everything about her is perfect. What a relief!

We have two names picked out - Carly and Mallory. We don't want to pick one until we see her, but the middle name is FOR SURE Dilyn - a combination of our moms' names - Diane and Lynn.

I am excited to start putting together the nursery. In my mind it is purple and white with lime green accents. It's sophisticated and maybe slightly shabby chic. We'll see if we can pull that together with what is in the stores. Wish me luck!

I love that middle name! So cute. I think I like Mallory... but I might be partial because it is my friend Ailisa's daughter's name.

Also there is a PRECIOUS little girl in Riley's class named Brinley. It so cute when he says, "Brinley my friend mom!"

congratulations! The names are nice, different enough and traditional at the same time. I don't see Carly's around much!

Cathy said...

Woo Hoo! I am so very excited, I can officially start designing little pink and purple onsies and t-shirts that say, "I love my Aunt Cathy", "My Aunt is Hot", and "Aunt Cathy's my favorite". Very excited for you both... its nice to finally have a niece on our side of the family! (I'll try to keep Charlie from buying her her first Barbie Corvette :)

So, so happy for you guys! This is wonderful. And to hear that she's perfect...just what a mommy wants to hear!

And I LOVE the nursery ideas you have! I can't wait to see how it all comes together

Congratulations! Look out Freddy! I have a feeling this will be the girliest girl ever! :)

Lesley said...

Yeah for girls! Hudson can marry her!!!!!

Lauren said...

YAY FOR A GIRL! That is what I voted the baby would be! :) Girls are so fun! (We have 4 in our family already and I'll probably be the only Parr girl with all boys!) Congrats on a healthy baby! :)
