And the winner is.....

It's a GIRL! AAAHHHHH!!! We had our ultrasound today, and it was amazing! Casey has decided he gets to be in charge of putting up pictures/video of what we saw today, so you'll have to go to his blog to see that. Click here to see her in all of her glory. The video is almost 8 minutes long, so I won't hold it against you if you can't make it through the whole thing.

The first image we got of our little girl was her face looking straight at us.... and then she waved. That's right. She waved. With her left hand. It was hysterical. She was in a pretty weird position, so I gave the technician permission to poke her to make her move around a little. Weirdest. Thing. Ever. I still can't feel her moving around in there, and it was crazy to see her squirm around so much and realize that was happening INSIDE ME! We also got a good profile shot, looked at her tiny heart beating, and then the technician was finally able to see that she's a girl! They said we're right on target with our time line, so the due date is still August 13 (hello, miserable hot summer!). They also said she weighs 5 ounces, and she looks wonderful!

Final consensus: Ultrasound = coolest thing ever.

Yeah!!! I'm so happy for you. I am so glad you got to see such a clear picture. Yes, ultrasounds are amazing things. Joshua had his legs crossed, which prevented the tech from seeing "him". Then, Pat started singing to my belly and voila! It's a boy!

God is so amazing!!!

Already a friendly little girl, and so photogenic! :) It's all so exciting! But I have to say, I'm glad those technicians can figure out what they're looking at . . .

How in the world did you get to have an ultrasound so early?! I'm incredibly jealous as I still have 5 weeks before we get to take a peek!

Oh yeah, congrats!! I'm going to watch the video right now!
