it's a girl!

We're expecting two grandchildren in 2012! And we now know that the one coming in May is a little girl. Here's a cute picture of her ballerina legs:
Back when my babies were born we didn't find out the gender of the baby until he/she emerged into the cold bright world. Our first was a precious little boy who stole our hearts and still has them. I was so certain my 2nd child was a girl that I purchased a teeny-tiny pair of solid gold hoops for the doctor to pierce her ears while in the hospital. She was a girl - in fact, she was the girl who is now having this little girl. That was the last time I guessed right on the gender of a child. Our next child I was sure would be another little girl. It was Bryan. #4 I don't remember guessing on - a girl, Sierra. And #5, the caboose: I was so sure it was a boy that we had a beautiful wood carving made in the Philippines with all our family names, including little Jex. Shockingly, it was a girl. It took a couple of days for us to name Azure, but getting her was the best little shocker in the world!We're so excited to get Brooke's little baby girl here ... they've got a whole slew of beautiful names to choose from. Can't wait to see what they choose. Trevor & Caci's little one is due the beginning of July - they're sure it's a girl. (If they inherited my great guessing abilities, we'll be welcoming in a grandson)

  1. Congratulations! There is nothing more wonderful than the blessing of a child to a family. My brother and his wife gave our family the first baby last July and Matthew has brought so much joy to us all, especially our Mother - he is her first and only grandchild, She is beyond happy to be celebrating her 75th birthday as a grandmother. Blessings, HHL

  2. Congratulations!!! :) Cute ballerina legs!! Enjoy those sweet babies...grandma!

    Happy week to you!


  3. congrat's on the new grandchildren this year. SO FUN.
    My birthing experiences were just like YOURS.
    I kinda liked not knowing what the sex of the child was until the Dr. said...It's a ????

    different times for sure

  4. Congrats!

    I was convinced Youngest was going to be a girl. I didn't find out until two weeks before he was born, as there was in issue with the ultra sound that could only be addressed with me knowing.

    Gotta say, as much as I love my son, I really wish I could have used the girl name I had all picked out... Abby Kaelyn.

    1. With a darling name like that, I think you ought to try again for a girl Julianna!

  5. coongrats! our son and DIL are having #4 in april. she's sure it' a girl but the sono was inconclusive so not sure if she'll have another sono or not. she's high-risk (coded on the delivery table with #3) so she may. #1 is a boy, #2 a girl, #3 a boy, so they think #4 (and the last one) is a girl.

    we hope!

    1. Yikes Teresa ... she coded????!!? I do hope all goes well this time. xoxox
