Think Pink

Today was the big ultrasound day. Everything seems to be happening much quicker this pregnancy. After several measurements and many minutes of chasing the little squirt around with the ultrasound (the babies' a fast little thing), the ultrasound tech told us some surprising news: we're having another girl! I was sure she was going to be a boy because I really thought Scamp was a girl, and I was right. Not that I wanted a boy over a girl.

One good thing is we won't need a lot of new clothes, crib bedding or blankets. Everything's already pink (or purple). I have at least 5 large storage boxes overflowing with Scamp's outgrown clothes. She's only in a 3T now. Plus, all her toys are pretty princesses and frilly dollies. Another plus is we are going to way outnumber Beef. He loves it! (Scamp usually takes his side though.)

Scamp is overjoyed to be a big sister, and she's getting exactly what she wanted, a baby sister. We are thrilled to have another girl. I wander what her nickname will be on Scamp's Place. I think I'll call her Squirt for now. I might even do a new blog title.

As always, I am thrilled with my GRANDchildren - girls or boys. BUT...don't count your chickens just yet - she may be like you were (my little tom-boy)and not want to wear dresses and frills (Scamp loves all the girly things!) Remember the pictures I have of you every single year in front of the Christmas tree all dressed up CRYING???? And remember how you did not like to wear pink??? :-)
Love you!

Congratulations, that's wonderful news! Sounds like everyone is happy, and yes, you'll definitely outnumber your poor husband. But I bet he loves every minute of it :)

I bet Scamp will be a great big sister!!!

Scamp and Squirt. I love it!!!
Congrats on another girl. How fun for Scamp to have a little sister.

A couple of years ago my daughter was begging me to adopt a little girl her age. She wanted a sister that much.

Tell Scamp I think the baby is so fortunate to have her for a big sister.
