We are on team....

PINK!! Our little girl was not shy at the ultrasound on Friday...she was wiggling all around it was pretty difficult for the u/s tech to even see the "goods" at first. But, eventually she got a good look & is 100% sure that we are having a little girl in November! Here's the "money" shot from the u/s on Friday:

I loved the ultrasound, but of course, I always love seeing Baby J. And by doing this (non-medical) u/s instead of attempting to move up my official anatomy scan, I still get to see her again in a couple weeks, woot! Best $75 ever spent & we got to find out what we are having a few weeks early, which has enabled me to get started on my crafting (I've already been to Michaels for the supplies for 2 of my planned projects - more on them lata :o). As you all know, I'm really into DIY crafts & decorating, so my baby girl's room will be no exception! And although I didn't pay for a 3D/4D scan, the nice tech did a few for us anyways, here's the best one - it's a top view looking down on the baby, so you can see her head, nose & a little bit of her body:

As for the hubbs - he's really excited about his little girl. I think he was in shock at first - because literally EVERYONE we knew thought it was a boy, including me. And all men want at least one son, but there's (God willing) always a next time & we are both absolutely thrilled as long as she's happy & healthy. He calls her by her name now when he rubs my belly & tells her he loves her - it literally melts my heart! She's so gonna have her daddy wrapped around her little finger & I can't wait to see him hold her for the first time. We told the rest of my family (my sisters that is; already told my dad, mom & my MIL because we knew they wouldn't be at the BBQ) today during our cookout. I baked a 2-layer cake with pink frosting inside & had my sister cut it to reveal the gender! She was so happy for us:

Wasn't my cake pretty? I was pretty proud of myself considering the fact that I'm not a baker...at all.

None of our parents could make it to the BBQ, but they are all very excited too - especially my mom who had been hoping for a granddaughter! After our 20 week anatomy scan, we'll likely go & register...I'll probably start working on a wish list of sorts soon, so please let me know if any of you mamas out there have product recommendations. My sister & a few close friends have already started planning my shower, which is set for October 2nd! I feel like everything is starting to happen so quickly & we can't wait to meet our beautiful little girl in November!

And consequently - this BIG news post happens to be my 100th! I can't believe I have made it to 100 posts already - thanks so much to all my readers for the support & for actually caring what I have to say! Time flies, haha. 'Till next time!

I already congratulated you on your little girl on the way on BB, but I thought I'd stop here and say it again. Congrats on the steal on the bedding. It looks lovely.
