SO many of you guessed a girl and I just love that James knew it all along, too. :) My husband and I are overjoyed, and not just because we were both longing for a little girl, but because all went well during the scan and the baby appears to be perfectly healthy. Here's a photo of our little babe...We had our scan early this morning, but didn't find out the gender until this evening because we wanted it to be a private thing. Here's what we did: instead of having the ultrasound technician tell us the gender during the scan, we prepared a piece of paper in advance that read:
"I am going to have a baby______!" The tech was to write in "sister" or "brother". Eight (loooong) hours later, when my husband got home from work, James opened the envelope and read the completed sentence to us. It was such a special moment and one, thanks to our video camera, we'll never forget.
Oh happy day! Off to shop for pink things now!
PS: We've had a name chosen for a while now, but we'll be keeping it a secret until she's born. :)
~Thank you for your comments!~

Oh congrats! What a wonderful idea letting James open the envelope like that!
Pink fluffy thoughts coming your way...beady socks, hair bows, bracelets and baby dolls! Oh you are going to have sooo much fun!
Have enjoyed following your blog for awhile now. Love all of you amazing ideas.
Just wanted to say CONGRATS
What a beautiful idea to have your son reveal the results to you! Congratulations.
How exciting! Congratulations!
Congratulations! May every day, hour and moment of this tiny girl's life be a blessing to your family and friends!!
Oh, that's lovely news.
Don't go mad on the pink though. Fight the princess culture and let your girl be who she needs to be.
Congratulations!!! What a great idea to videotape the special moment!
Congrats!!! So happy for you!
Congratulations! You must be thrilled!
I was also thrilled when my last child was a girl (after two boys). Although, apart from a few pink clothes, she has grown up to be just like one of the boys and is always on top of the scrum lol!
Hope your pregnancy continues healthily and smoothly!
Congrats! As a Montessori mom of three girls, I suggest you stock up on flower arranging items :)
So happy for James. There's nothing as sweet as a boy having a baby sister!
How wonderful!! She is going to be one lucky girl! Congratulations!
A new baby girl - congratulations. What a precious way for all three of you to learn about your new baby girl. I am very excited for you.
Congratulations! I remember I almost fell off the examination chair when they told me my middle one was going to be a girl - they are super-rare on both sides of the family. I'm so happy for you, that you'll get at least one of each as well!
I am so happy for you! Karen
