we are having a baby girl! I am really excited. I wanted a boy (mostly because I grew up with two older brothers and I couldn't imagine my little girl not having any older brothers) but that is okay with me! She will have a great daddy and 4 uncles who will protect her ;]. She is going to be so spoiled. Now here comes the fun part... picking names! Any finishing my registry. Although at this point, I've pushed all the necessities aside and have been only adding clothes to the registry. Shame on me. I can't wait until she is here! I am 20 weeks tomorrow. Halfway point! yay.
