We just found out today that we are having another GIRL!
OK, talk about the CUTEST thing ever! Angelina has been telling me since we told her that I was pregnant, that she wants the baby to be a girl. Here was one of our conversations recently…
Angelina: “Mommy, I want a baby sister.”
Mommy: “OK, what if this baby is a boy?”
Angelina: “Well, mommy, I DON’T want a boy!”
Mommy: “Well, honey, you may not have a choice.”
Angelina: “MOMMY! I DO NOT WANT A BOY!!!!”
Mommy: “Well, Angelina, it’s not like I can put the baby back if it’s a boy. So you may just have to deal with the fact that you could have a baby brother.”
Angelina: “Well, I will just pray and ask Jesus for a baby sister, then, because I DON’T want a brother!”
Mommy: “OK, sweetie, ask Jesus for a baby sister. That’s a great idea! But, if Jesus wants us to have a little boy, you can’t be mad at Jesus, right?”
Angelina: “Well, I guess not. But, Jesus will give me what I want.”
Ha ha ha! This was a pretty funny conversation, because Angelina was adamant about not wanting a brother, but wanting a sister. :)
Anyway, so it was so cute… like I was saying. Mike was out of town, so, my mom meet Angelina and I at my doctor’s office to find out the sex of the baby. We waited, according to Angelina, FOREVER. Finally, the ultrasound technician came out in the waiting room to get us. That’s when Angelina whispers under her breath, “Finally! That took Forever!!” All I had to do was glare at her, and she stopped. ha ha.
So we get in there, and I get all prepped for the ultrasound. I swear you could hear a pin drop! We waited in anticipation as the ultrasound tech slid the scanner around my belly…. “oh, It’s a GIRL!” said the ultrasound tech….
A HUGE smile came over my face, and as I turned my head to look over at Angelina, there was a tear rolling slowly down her cheek. Along with the tear was this certain laugh she does when she is trying her darnedest to keep herself from bursting into huge roars of crying. She was so incredibly excited, and at that moment had everyone in that room not only excited, but crying too. At the site of that one measly tear and that insanely ADORABLE emotional giggle, even my ultrasound tech was crying!
Wow, I thought to myself… to think that 3 words can cause so much emotion… “It’s a Girl”.
