Rainbows and Daffodils....and more importantly.....

 IT'S A GIRL!!!!!


the ultrasound appointment was lovely. we got to see her little legs and arms and heart and brain and spine. 
her foot was almost touching her forehead; she was all curled up cozy on her right side.
it went so quick. i could have looked for hours.
everything looked great she currently weighs 15 oz. and she should be ready to greet the world in july.
my heart could burst with joy.



all the daffodils and gardenia and plum blossoms are bursting right along with me!
it's a pretty dang beautiful world over here and i couldn't be happier.

and now we're spending the rest of the day organizing her nursery :)

skirt: thrifted in tucscon, $4
black shirt: clothing exchange, free
boots: gift from carolann
sweater: was my mom's in the 70s
heart necklace: made by em
other jewelry: thrifted

I'm freaking out. I swear, when you posted that your appointment was today I just immediately got this flash that it was a girl. OMG Heather! Best best best! Just THINK about all the adorable baby girl clothes you're going to get passed along to you :-)

I'm so happy it's a baby girl! I am so stoked :) :) :) and I am so bad at guessing, but that was my hope and hunch!

Congratulations!!! You're gonna have so much fun dressing your little gal in vintage dresses. You look adorable & happy.

Knew it! :D Congrats! That's such wonderful news. I guess July is the month for sweet babies to come into the world, one of my dear friends is due then too. I absolutely love that skirt btw, you look gorgeous, as usual. And those double hair buns are adorable :) Someday you and your daughter must wear matching ones in your hair!

Congrats. She's going to be so lovely.

I died!!! I'm so unbearably smitten. It was weird because whenever I would try and guess or think about what you would be having it was always girl and I just thought it was because you are sooo girlie. I actually had a dream about it a few nights ago. I told it to Matt and he was like you need to call heather.

Amy Beatty said...

I'm back! Guess my phone doesn't like making comments. Any hoo. I'm just so excited for you two and I'm just overflowing with love for this sweet tender baby. I'm so glad I get to be a part of her life. The kids are way happy but of course the boys were rooting for boys. I just can't wait to see this blessed baby. I want to hold and cuddle her now. Im dying to see if she is going to be the perfect bend of just one or the other. You and darin both were the cutest babies. You and your friends can kept talking clothes, I just want that baby!!! I love you I love you I love you and Darin too :) its so hard to be so far away for this. Btw.. This blog gave my the sweetest joy I have ever gotten from a blog. Pure glorious joy. Tears, smiles, butterflies the works. You are one beautiful momma!!! Love this growing family more than I could ever ever say or write. Thank so much for sharing this with us all.

Heather said...

Andrea said...

Your skirt totally reflects the beauty of your spirit! All those beautiful colors. You are glowing for sure! So happy to hear the great news. I was thinking about you on Thursday in wonder of what it would be. I've been adding vintage baby clothes to the mix at my shop, and I've got some cute little dresses for the wee one I know you will love. So happy for you and Darin and the rest of your awesome family. Congrats!
