Drum roll please.....


Claire's going to have a little sister!! YEAH!! We are so excited! Our appointment was at 2 and 2:30 and we didn't even see the doctor till about 3:35! Everything checked out A-OK and the due date is still 12/29 which they thought very unlikely because it stayed the same. Claire had the same date from start to finish so guess my babies are just right on the mark. The baby was moving a TON - even more than usual for baby girl #2 because she's been so active the past 2 sonograms. Her heart beat was 142 bpm which is a nice strong heart rate. Oh it feels great to say SHE instead of it... can't wait to put bows on her head and dress her and Claire alike for special occasions... yes, I'll be that mom! At least Neil and I won't have to argue over a boy name because we seem to be more like minded with the girl names. We probably won't decide for a little longer because that's just how we are. We like Julie/Julia and.... well, that's pretty much it right now. Praise God for a healthy baby girl and a forever sister for Claire Bear. Can't wait to see them grow up together!

Thank you to Stef and Joe David and little Jed for keeping Claire entertained while we were at the doctor's office FOREVER! Claire had the best time "helping" Jed that she didn't even respond when we told her she was having a sister. She didn't care either way so I didn't expect a big response!

Here are a few pics we took when we got home! I love the ones of Claire!

17 weeks 1 day - me and my baby girl!
