I Keep Forgetting to Mention That...

...we're having a girl!

We had our ultrasound two-and-a-half weeks ago now, and I just keep neglecting to post about it. Pretty lame, I know. But we are very excited.

We took Meg with us to the radiology place, and when the tech said it was a girl, Meg jumped up and down with her hands straight up in the air and yelled, "Yaaaaaaaaaay!" For the first month or so after we told her that we're pregnant, Meg insisted that the baby had to be a sister. We were eventually able to help her understand that "only God knows," and she responded well to that idea. But, my, oh, my, when the truth came out, you could tell she was still clinging to her first hope! It was very sweet.

Matthew's totally clueless, in case anyone is wondering. We haven't worked much at preparing him. Maybe we will do that more as September nears. For now, he's oblivious and happy as the baby of the family. And I'm grateful for a few more months of keeping it that way.
