A little GIRL! Can you believe it? Just as I suspected all along, there’s a little, bouncing baby girl in there and we’re over the moon excited. While we would have been just as excited in finding out that there was a little gent in there too, we feel so lucky and blessed to soon welcome another happy and healthy little angel into our family.
Walking into our ultrasound appointment yesterday afternoon, Marty turned and said to me, “Something about the thought of two little girls running around makes me so happy.” Fifteen minutes later, we saw our baby on the monitor and watched as the ultrasound tech pointed out all of the her organ systems. And just as I had with Everly’s ultrasound, I blurted out, “It’s a girl!” before the tech could even identify the sex herself.
It was an exciting and emotional day, and one that I’ll never forget. I’m still pinching myself and reeling over the news. I’m going to be the Mama of two little girls. Marty is going to have two little ladies wrapped around his fingers. Our house will be filled with the girly laughter of sisters. SISTERS! 🙂
So I apologize for not blogging in such a long time, but the past few weeks have been rather exciting! Marty recently found out that he got the promotion that he had interviewed for last month. As a Treasury Management Analyst, he’ll be working from UMB’s downtown branch starting next week. On top of that good news, I was happy to hear back from the company that I interviewed with in February and was super excited to receive an offer from them. While they were eager to get me started in training, I ended up giving notice to my employer that day and will be starting at Brown Shoe Company this week!
After all of this fantastic news, how could it possibly get any better right? Well, believe that it does. Marty and I seem to be on a winning streak lately, and our good luck was compounded when we went in for my 19 week ultrasound last week and found out that… it’s a GIRL! A healthy, active, long-limbed baby girl – it’s official!
We are so excited that we have a little girl Buehler baking in the oven! Tuesday night, Marty and I met my parents, Marty’s Mom, and my sister, Halley at my OB to find out the sex of our baby. While my Dad waited outside in the reception area, we crowded around the monitor in the dim ultrasound room and watched the little lady moving about, stretching, and even reaching up and touching her face.
The ultrasound tech told us that everything looked perfect. We saw all the little bones in her fingers, her brain, the chambers of her tiny beating heart, her spinal cord, and of course, her lady parts. Everything is measuring to proportion except for her arms and legs, which are measuring at 21 weeks (she was 18 weeks, 6 days on Tuesday) so it looks like she may have my body type (Yay!).We are absolutely thrilled that we are having a girl and can’t wait to start putting her room and clothes together! We honestly couldn’t be happier.
