Guess What?!?!

Some of you may already know, but Chad and I are expecting a baby! It's (I'll keep the suspense going) due Jan. 29th. We've been keeping it pretty tight lipped but it has slipped out to a few people. While I was at work yesterday some of the girls talked me into setting an appointment to find out our babies gender. My actual appointment with the Dr. is in 2 weeks, but honestly I couldn't wait! The place was so nice and actually got me in that night. I told Chad I was working late and went with my friend Terri to find out. We've originally been thinking boy, but these last few weeks I haven't been as sure. I bought the first outfit I could find that would give it away to Chad.
Hopefully from this picture you can tell that we are going to be the proud parents of a baby GIRL! We're totally excited and Chad couldn't wipe the smile off his face all night! He's going to be such a good daddy! She'll be the first baby girl for both sets of grandparents and I think that means she is going to be spoiled! This whole parent thing is going to be crazy but I think we're finally ready!

Woo Hoo! I'm so excited for you! Being a mom is the best! Now you can really start shopping - that's the fun part of the whole pregnancy thing. There's so much cute stuff - especially for girls.... it's probably a good thing I have a boy cuz I have a hard enough time controlling myself as it is.
