Six Word Saturday



Still excited, we're having a girl!!!
And...
I still have the best husband!!!
AND......
I am truly blessed and loved!!!

We're so excited, and I'm personally still in shock that it's a girl. I mean for the past 18 weeks I was convinced it was a boy. We'd picked out a name for a little boy and I was calling him a he when I referred to what actually was a her! I will never forget the day we found out she was a she! We went to a place called Watch Me Grow and had a 3D/4D ultrasound. Actually we'd thought when we'd first found out we were pregnant that it'd be cool to eventually go there. But then we found out that we'd be paying the doctor for the ultrasound to tell us the gender anyhow so we went to our parents and said how much is it worth to you! haha. They all said they'd pay their part and Jamie's aunt said she would pay ours. So I'd already had that day on the calendar at work as off and I told Jamie that we should go then. So his mom came to town to take part in this grand experience. (This is the first grandchild on both sides) We went on June 28th at 10 am. Jamie and I were taken back at the beginning just us two in hopes that the baby would show us the gender and then we'd call everyone in the room to show them. Everyone included: my mom, dad, grandma, Jamie's mom, dad, step-mom and aunt. Well, she wouldn't show us the gender because she had her legs crossed. So we decided instead of being in there the whole time by ourselves we'd call everyone in there and just find out together. I was getting kind of worried because she wouldn't show us. OH YES, we also had two people watching it live on the wonderful world wide web! They were Jamie's brother, Jason and his wife Heather. And then my best friend Erica over at Vicrace Designs. And then the lady said and there's the girl parts! My husband just leaned over and hugged me. I remember feeling so very loved and blessed and thankful all at once. He said it's a girl. I said I know we need to apologize to her for calling her a he/him all along! haha. What an amazing experience it all was. I would recommend everyone having this experience if they can.

And oh yes, I think we've decided on the name Madelyn Rae. :) And we'd call her Maddie.

Hi Kasi! Congratulations on having a girl. Madelyn Rae is a wonderful name! If you didn't call her Maddie everyone else would be calling her that anyway.

Mrs. Jim's and my child is a girl. It was soooooo nice! At first we too were "calling him a he when I referred to what actually was a her! We didn't until she was born.
We even used the boy name for her until then, Festus.

Not being able to tell at first reminded me of a story I wrote in poem form. I won't post it here.

Happy 6WS!
