We are having a baby GIRL!!!!! I could not be more excited about it!!!! My doctor (who is amazing - who gives out their number and tells you to text her if you need anything?!) called me and told me I needed to be sitting down! Then she told us she is a baby girl and 100% healthy and I was the happiest girl in the world. I literally kept wanting to just skip down the streets of New York and kiss everyone on the face and sing and dance because it was such a good day. Atticus and our girl will be about a year and a half apart and I can't wait to see Atticus be a big brother! He is so silly and fun I know he will be the cutest brother always making her laugh like he does with me and David. The other day I had messed up a recipe I was making and I was so bugged.. I looked at David and kept saying "ughhhh how did I do that?? I always mess up recipes!" And sounded really annoyed. Atticus was sitting on the ground and looks up at me and just started busting up laughing haha he thought my reaction was hilarious for some reason and suddenly we were all laughing. That happens more often than not with our boy and I can't wait to watch him make her smile!!!!! He also is such a snuggle bug. Always cuddling with his stuffed dog at night and if I'm with him he has to be snuggling my arm (like hardcore snuggling - haha he pretends my arm is his doggie) so I think we are in for some top notch snuggles between those two. We honestly couldn't be more excited and she already feels like a part of the family! Her due date is November 21st but since Atticus was so big (9lb 5oz) she said she would like to induce me a week early - so we will see what happens but sometime in November she will be here which feels like forever away!
Also wanted to say thanks for always being so awesome. I feel really lucky to get to talk back and forth with you guys and to have your support and to feel comfortable sharing all of these details of our life with you!! Xo
Side note: A lot of you have asked how we found out so early - so to answer the question, now they can do a blood test that determines gender. It doesn't harm the baby whatsoever or anything - just a simple blood draw. They didn't have this when I was pregnant with Atticus and my doc said they started doing this about 8 months ago. :)
