pink power.

throw out the blue, folks...IT'S A GIRL!!

it's funny because somehow I knew it all along. i don't quite know how, because heaven knows that i did NOT want a girl for the longest time. in fact, my parents reminded me of this over dinner the other night when we broke the news to them. they said, "a GIRL!? you promised us you never would have a girl because girls were mean!" and i did. i vowed to them years ago, "mom, dad, i do not want to have a girl. i'm having all boys." well, apparently, it's not up to me.

and i'm so glad!

we're SOOO thrilled to be having a girl! i feel like the heavens above have been intricately preparing M and me for a since we've been married. we've been surrounded by the most adorable little girls for neighbors- Elizabeth, Juliette, Hailey, Madeline, Raleigh...the list goes on and on! and the most adorable nieces/cousins- Annabelle, Nicole, Kaydee, Natalie- i've been getting more and more excited week by week, year by year to do the ribbons, pig-tails, dresses, bows, tights, the love, the hugs and the DRAMA that inevitably come with having the pink goodness of a baby.

so while i am a little nervous of those "teenager years," and the crazy hormones that accompany the XX chromosomes, i couldn't be happier than thinking of holding my baby girl.
