Baby 2011 Update
As it turns out, it's a ________.

Why even prolong this already extended wait?!

Here's a little how the visit went.

Lila, Craig and I were bubbling with anxiousness...

The doctor smiled... and said that he was 99.9% positive that Sweet Baby 2011 is really Sweet Baby GIRL 2011.

[Insert heavy, happy sigh.]


Lila and Sweet Baby Girl are going to be sisters.

My work here on earth is done.

Ok, all dramatic statements aside - I'm so pleased. I'm so pleased that I'm going to have two "ladies" who will [hopefully] grow up making pretty fantastic memories -- the stuff that Hallmark cards are made of.

They'll giggle.

And fight.

And at night, hopefully snuggle together while watching a movie.

Oh, I could go on and on...

I'll happily pay for two weddings so long as I can one day take a picture just like this one:

Oh, welcome to our family Baby Girl.


P.S. We haven't settled on a name for Baby Girl just yet. We may (or may not) tell when we've figured it out. If it were completely up to me, I'd totally keep it under wraps for one very respectable reason: this sweet baby girl might be the culmination of our little family's growth... and the idea of keeping her name to ourselves for just a bit longer before sharing her with the rest of the world? Well, it's just really appealing.

She'll be the world's soon enough. Right now? She's ours.

And I can't tell you how much I love that.

Yep, I'd like to hold on to this period of time, this day, forever.


Thank you to ALL of you who voted... it warms my heart to know that so many of your are excited about the birth of this little sweetie pie. THANK YOU.
