I'm a twenty-nine year old Army wife currently living near a large Army post. I have an unhealthy obsession with Dr. Pepper, the Internet, cloth diapers, and ridiculous TV shows. I'm a stay at home mom to two beautiful daughters, AJ and Amelia. We also have a 6 year old beagle named Abby who is as dumb as a box of rocks.

The Verdict Is In!

So as I stated earlier this week, I had a follow-up ultrasound on Tuesday to get a few more pictures of this little one, and to see if we could get a look at the "goods."  They wanted me to come 2 weeks after the initial ultrasound so when I made a reservation for AJ to go to hourly care the only time slot they had available was from 8:30-10:30 and my appointment was scheduled at 9:30.

I'm usually out of there with plenty of time to get back and pick her up, but for some reason, they were really far behind on Tuesday.  I finally got called back at 9:55 and was in the ultrasound room by 10:00.  I was worried that the tech would have trouble seeing the gender again and it would take longer and make me late getting AJ (which I was anyway and they charge $1/minute you're late...highway robbery, I tell you!).

Anyway, I don't want to keep you all in suspense any longer than I already have by rambling on and on...

We found out that Baby #2 is a....

We're very excited to have a baby sister to add to the family and are furiously trying to decide on names that go well with AJ's name.  AJ, however is in a state of denial, I think, because when I told her that she is going to have a baby sister she told me that she is the big sister.  I agreed with her and said, yes, but the baby is a girl baby, to which she then replied that the baby is a boy baby.  Haha!

Oh well, she'll understand eventually, and someday they'll be arguing over clothes, make-up and who knows what else!

As far as how I'm feeling, I am very happy, but very, very surprised because I really thought that we were having a boy this time around.  I'm thrilled that we'll be able to reuse the clothing that we have saved from AJ, and also a little relieved because I know girls.  I know what to expect and how to handle things like diaper changes, etc.

After it was determined that this baby is a girl, the ultrasound tech was scanning and she casually asked me if we were going to try again after this one to get a boy.

My response?

Nope, two girls is enough for me!  ;)


  1. Congrats! Two girls should be a blast!

  2. I am so so so so excited for you!! Eeeeeek. :)

    I can't wait to hear what name you and the hubs select.

    That is very cool there is an hourly daycare near you. I've never heard of that - but I can see where that could come in handy very often. I'd be more comfortable with that I think than having a total stranger in my home watching my (non existant) child. :) But the $1 per minute being late is insane. I feel like they should at least give you a few minutes grace period. Sheesh.

    Anyway, congratulations again! :)

  3. Yippee! Welcome to the two girls club! That's how I felt. I thought boy, but I was happy and sooo comfortable with another girl:)

  4. Congratulations! I hope we have a girl in round 2 but I think I'm destined to have boys...C'est la vie

  5. Congratulations!! How exciting. I'm not gonna lie, when/if we decide to expand the fam, I would love another girl! :)


I'd love to know what you think...
