Sugar and Spice...

...and everything nice.
That's what little girls are made of.

Is this true? I guess we'll find out soon enough. Because...

We are having a little GIRL!!!

We had a doctor's appointment yesterday, and everything is looking good, so far. PRAISE GOD. Our DAUGHTER is developing appropriately, and has a strong heartbeat. It was wonderful to see her on the ultrasound again. She was moving around a bit, sucking her LEFT thumb (Kris is hoping for a lefty!), and just appeared content to show us her sweet face. Kris and Caleb were there, and when our doctor asked Caleb if he was excited about his baby sister, he said "yes." I am not sure he truly understood what she was asking him, but it was cute! While I was a bit apprehensive about trusting an ultrasound this early to reveal the sex, our doctor told us that she was 100% sure that we are expecting a baby girl!

Here is an image from yesterday.

For those of you who look at these things and need Cliff Notes, here is my attempt at explaining the picture...

She is curled up in the fetal position (how appropriate). Her head is tucked in, with her chin close to her chest. She has her right hand up by her head, and her left arm is bent, with her left thumb in her mouth! Her knees are bent, and her legs are crossed at the ankles. How ladylike. =)

And, here's a "belly shot" of me from yesterday, so you can see what she looks like from the outside.

We are blessed, and give glory to God for what He has been doing, and will continue to do, in our family.
