p.s. A few minutes after posting this, a friend found this one too. Just more to think about.
Today was the big day! We finally found out Tiny’s gender! I warned Tiny before we went in, “This is the only time you will ever hear me say this but, ‘keep your legs open!'” Tiny cooperated and we are pleased to announce that we are having a very healthy baby…
I know, I can’t believe it either! I was 100% convinced that this little baby was a boy! So much for mother’s intuition. I guess that kicks in AFTER the baby is born! I let Mike have his “I told you so” moment, and now I know he will never believe me again for any subsequent children…I wouldn’t either! Anyhow, let’s get past that boy stuff because girl stuff is SO MUCH cuter anyway! Here are some pictures of our daughter:
The entire time we took pictures, she kept putting her hands to her forehead. She is either so very tired or a little drama queen!
Here is a side view. Look at that brain…we have a smarty on our hands! But, she’s a Mike/Jenna creation, so we already knew that! She’s got her knees pulled up, so she is in the fetal position. So cliche, Tiny!
Here is another picture with her hands to her forehead. Call my crazy, but I think she looks like me a little! Look at her nose and mouth! She is BEAUTIFUL! And yes, I realize that sounds a bit conceited right after I told you she looks like me…she is way better looking though :)
Mike and I decided on a name as well, but we are starting to second guess our choice. I wish they just came with name tags…I mean, God knows her name already, but I think He is holding out on us! “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,” right? Help a girl out! To remedy this roadblock, Mike and I have decided to call Tiny by her name for a week or so just to make sure, then we will go public. There is always some kind of hangup we have about each name, but tonight, my mom told me, “the older you get, the more you realize this: name your baby whatever you want. You’re her parents.” And, I know she is right.
So, for now, remember to pray for Tiny, and soon we will give you something else to call her by. We will continue to pray about her name and for her future. But tonight, we are just saying prayers of thanks for a Happy, Healthy, Holy baby!
We are having a girl!!! I love her <3
Finally, in an effort to get ready for Tiny, we have started researching various baby products. You have probably seen all of my questions posted online. Being pregnant in a Facebook age is priceless. Thank you for all of your advice! Keep it coming, and I will keep the updates coming. We have our next OB appointment tomorrow, then one short month until I prove that I am right and he is a boy, or Mike gets to say “I told you so” and she is a girl. We can’t wait!
