When Kory and I went to the ultrasound on Friday I don't think I have ever been so nervous. I have been a taddd bit high strung the last few weeks. Hum, ya. Partly because I just wanted to know that some of my big concerns about the baby could be put to rest. Partly because life is so busy right now.
I have had more than one dream that this little one was a girl, so I would have been VERY thrown off it it had been a boy. When we finally got to the part when the ultrasound tech tells us what we are having...I got VERY scared. EEPS! All this time telling everyone we ARE having a girl, what if I was wrong??? She typed up on the ultrasound pic, "I'm a Girl!", and then, I knew. 3 for 3. 3 dreams for three kids. All right. I was so excited, and emotional. I don't remember ever dropping tears like that for the other two.
When I got home and told Emma and Hayden, well Emma did cartwheels (really!), and Hayden hung his head and walked away. So, later I explained to him my dream and that I had one for him too. He will come around. His biggest concern is that she will be just like Emma. :) "Double the trouble Mom!"
So today we are seeing pink, and so happy to have this new little Hannah Margaret* join our family the first part of March. How lucky am I?
*Kory picked this name the day I told him we were having another baby. We both really like the nickname Maggie, and come up with it the same weekend - and at different times - so it really has been hard to shake, and keeps coming back to both of us. We will see if the name changes, but for now this is it!
