The Best Saturday

Yesterday was a glorious spring day - the weather was in the fifties, which, after months of winter, feels like heaven. We did some really fun things and I'll bore you with the details tomorrow, but I'll tell you the highlight of the day right now.

On Tuesday morning, while brushing his teeth, Bart said, "I think we should find out the gender of the baby this weekend."

And so, today, we drove to Rhode Island and found out that we're having a . . .

I was fairly certain it was a girl going in (I really would have been shocked if they'd announced it was a boy), but I was amazed how exciting it was to really know one way or the other. It's a girl! 

 Now to switch to using "her" instead of "it."

  5. Congratulations! I think it's much nicer to know, and be able to think of the baby as "she".

  9. Yay! Congratulations!

    Part of me think I'd like to have a boy first, but I definitely need at least one girl. So I'll probably be hoping for a girl during my first pregnancy, just to make sure I get one.
