It's a girl!

Well we are having a girl!!!

I really can't believe it, but at the same time I can.

Prior to this pregnancy I always thought I would be an all boy mom. I really had no reason for thinking that and considering I can't see into the future it was kind of a dumb thing to think, but really I just assumed Luke and I would have all boys.

However, from the beginning of this pregnancy I had a feeling it was a girl. When I was pregnant with Eli I knew without a doubt it was a boy, no question.

This time I just had a feeling it was a girl. I wasn't certain but I was about 90% sure it was a girl. Which sort of scared me.

And then at 16 weeks I found out that it was indeed a girl. And I was still scared, but also really excited.

I've never pictured myself as a girl mom. I'm not big into frilly type things, and bows and tutus just don't seem like my cup of tea, but obviously having a daughter goes way above frilly things. And even though I feel like I just got this boy thing down and now I'm going to learn all the girl ways I'm really excited!

I am excited for Eli to have a little sister, and when I think about girl days and shopping trips and having a daughter, it just seems so fun! I've started looking at girl clothes and bedding and I get a little bit more excited everyday! I have started feeling her move which is always the most miraculous yet creepy feeling.

We have a name picked out, I will share it soon.

Also, we are now officially moved into our new house! It was a long process but we found a great house and after some negotiating we were able to make it our new home. Yay!

We closed on Halloween and spent the weekend moving in. I will say moving while pregnant and with a toddler is not the easiest thing. I feel tired all the time and I have a feeling it might be a year before this house is decorated BUT we are in and we are so thankful! What a journey it was from the time we listed our house to the day we closed on our new house. But we learned so much during that time and as cliche as it sounds it brought us closer together. 

So lots of big things going on around here! Now off to attempt to unpack a little bit more. Our goal is to actually get our cars in the garage this week. Big plans!

You are going to rock being a girl mom just as much as you do being a boy mom. As a fellow mama in the one of each club, welcome. We are truly blessed to get to experience both genders!

Congratulations! My daughter is also having a girl (the last week of March) and we were all convinced that it would be a boy. I'm making dresses, rompers, and bows like crazy :)
