Yes, we are having another little girl. I tell you, all the schemes about boys make you sicker, girls make you sicker, twins make you even sicker is HOOPLA!!! They're all just scams. I was tons sicker this time than I was with Madalyn...and what do you know, they're both GIRLS!! My theory is it's different for every women, it's different for every baby, plain and simple! Anyway, we were kind of hoping for a boy, Erik in that he wanted his little football player, and me, well honestly I wanted to be sure that we had one of each this time since I was so sick at first being pregnant again sometime just didn't sound like much fun to me. Of course with time us women forget the horrible parts of pregnancy and I'm sure I'll gladly try again sometime. :) Even still, we're excited for a girl and the better part is she'll be born about the same time as Madalyn so I'm hoping she can wear most all of Madalyn's old clothes. A plus for sure!

Apparantly this is how she deciphered we were having a girl. Don't ask me! :)

This is her little foot stikcing out. Can you count all 5 toes?!

Everything looked great in the ultrasound, she's right on schedule and everything. It still amazes me how they can decipher what parts of the ultrasound are. I mean I can point out the main parts like the head, some feet or hands, but it amazes me how they're able to find the stomach, kidneys, things like that so easily. I just nod my head and say, "oh yea, looks good!" Erik wasn't able to make it to the ultrasound, :( and I wanted us to be able to find out together what we were having so I had the lady put a pair of socks, pink or blue, depending whether it was a boy or girl, in a box for us and we would open it up together. I tell you, it was pretty hard not to peek in that box all afternoon waiting for Erik to come home. I'm proud to say that I didn't though.

Again, Congrats! That is a really cute idea you thought of to both find out together what you were having.
