Oh, Boy....

Baby gender reveal 017

The time has finally come!  And we are having a...

Baby gender reveal 016

GIRL!!!!!!!!!

I can't even explain the absolute joy I felt when the ultrasound tech told me I was having a girl.  Not only had I been hoping for a daughter since I was a little girl, but I was completely convinced I was having a boy.  My husband is one of two boys and his father was one of many boys.  The odds didn't seem like they were in my favor but sometimes things are meant to happen for a reason.  

I don't cry very often, but I was in tears when I saw my little girl moving around like a little acrobat inside me.  I can't really compare it to anything else in my life, but it was one of those moments I'll never forget.  I still get misty eyed just thinking about it!

While it's still pretty early and anything can happen, I hope my ultrasound with my doctor in a few days will confirm her as a girl as well.  I may have already bought a bunch of cute girly stuff, but the tags are going to stay on until we are certain.  I'll probably doubt the sex until she's actually here... it's just my crazy nature.

These pictures are special to me because I actually took them in my baby's room.  We only have a few pieces of furniture and some clothes, but we do have until December/very early January to get everything together.  I love the bright cheery colors and I can't wait to add some pink accents!

I'm so excited to share this news with you and I can't explain how happy I truly am.  This journey has been a little crazy, but it's starting to feel so real and I couldn't ask for a better pregnancy.  Let's just hope the rest of the trip is as wonderful as the first part!

  39. Aw.
    That's wonderful news. Congratulations to you!
    That is like a girl I know who has a family with 9 children, only 3 are boys, yet all her siblings who are married are having boys (she has two). Sometimes that happens!! I know a guy who has two brothers and no sisters, yet he has 3 daughters and a son. Sometimes the opposite of what you expect happens! I always knew I'd have two sons since I was a little girl, for some reason. I used to want two sons and a daughter because I have two older brothers and then there is me. I still have hope for a daughter one day. I'll just admire other people's little girls in the meantime! hehe.
    Congratulations again!

  50. You are so lucky Ashley!!! I've always wanted a little girl too (dressing her up would be so fun)... I'm the same as you, my husband has many boys in his family so I'm hoping that when the time does come (although many years away) I can be like you. I understand your joy and I'm really happy for you. This is wonderful

  56. YAY! So exciting! We find out the gender in a few weeks, and my gut tells me it's a girl. Everyone I know (and strangers, too) ALL think it's going to be a girl, despite the fact that I come from a family of three boys and myself, and my husband's family is five boys and three girls so there's a huge chance it's a boy.
    Congratulations!!
