We're having a baby!

Yep.  Surprise surprise.  It was a bit of a surprise for us in fact.  Not unplanned, but a little earlier than planned.  I was thinking February or March sounded like a good time to have a baby.  Instead, this little one decided it need to arrive earlier than that.  Say around Christmas! 

I've been kind of coasting through this pregnancy.  Not to say I've been feeling lovely, but mostly just busy with life and chugging along.  Well I've managed to chug right along to 20 weeks (crazy!).  Yesterday I went in for my ultrasound and got to glimpse the adorable profile of our little bambino.

(Sorry it's a bad picture of a picture)

And unlike some people I know who can manage to wait the full 40 weeks to find out what flavor they are having, we made sure to find out yesterday.

Oh my goodness!  We are having a GIRL!!!!!! (Really?)  I asked the technician if she was sure "because I had three of the other flavor at home" and she was pretty darn sure.  SHOCK.  I had completely geared myself up for it to be another boy and now I'm just not sure what to think now that I know it is a girl.  (I'm sure that will wear off)

The boys all stayed home with a friend so Josh and I stopped at the store real quick to pick up something for them on the way home.  Lo and behold we happened upon pink filled Oreos.  Too perfect (and Josh grabbed a package to take into work today too).

Needless to say, the boys are all excited.  Sam especially was hoping for a girl because "he has too many brothers" and he wants to play with her hair.

So a new adventure begins!  Possibly involving the colors pink and purple, ribbons and boys, ruffles and princesses, mood swings and eventually makeup.  Oh goodness!
