And the winner is...It's A GIRL!!!

Today was the day we finally found out our baby's sex - we're having a GIRL and we couldn't be more excited! Everyone really had me thinking that it was going to be a boy, but SHE proved you all wrong! If you look at the top 2 pictures above (which hopefully my DAUGHTER will forgive me for in the years ahead!), there are 3 little lines in the middle between her legs. Team Pink!

So many thoughts running through my head now! What will she be like? What should we name her? Who will she look like? The list goes on and on. Now that we know there's a little girl in there, this whole pregnancy is really starting to feel real! Grandma Carol (she's still deciding on her official title, so "Grandma" might change) and I already went to the fabric store this morning and bought tons of adorable girly fabrics and have projects all lined up for Baby Girl Tipper!

One of the first things I thought about was, "How young is too young for a Madonna concert?" And right after that, I thought, "let the in-utero music education begin!" Oh baby girl, if you think Mommy's been listening to lots of Madonna and Lady Gaga lately, well, all I can say is...strap in, hold on tight, and get ready, cuz you ain't heard nuthin' yet! But we won't just be covering the best of the pop/dance music world. My ipod has an extremely wide variety, so it's safe to say this little girl will be well-versed in Pete Yorn, Ben Harper, classic rock, alternative, electronica, 80's, 90's, and the list goes on and on and on! We might even have to register her for her very own ipod and speaker for her nursery!

Geoff and I have a date for this Friday to go check out the brand new, gigantic Target that just opened around the corner from our house (within perfect stroller walking distance!), where we will no doubt be purchasing a few too many adorable outfits for our precious little girl! Tonight we're going on a tour of Saint John's Hospital, where we'll most likely be delivering, and pretty soon we need to sign up for childbirth classes!

As they say in one of our favorite movies "Almost Famous" (also bound to be one of our daughter's favorites someday), "It's all happening!"


  1. Congrats!
    I don't know who the boy people were, but I always thought baby would be a girl.
    Yay for pink and girly!! Tutus and crowns!!
    Enjoy your walk to Target and hospital tours.

  2. We're so excited, Jackie. Grandma Carol showed me the fabric and patterns and she's going to be in sewing heaven for the next several years, I'm sure. It's so fun to be able to think about what she'll be like and the fun we'll have. As I told Geoff this morning, we're certainly well versed in taking care of little girls, so I have a really good idea of what to expect. So happy! Love, Grandpa Phil.

  3. YAY!!! I'm so happy for you guys and happy that Mini Tipdawg? was not shy with the camera! xoxo, Shaunna

  4. Yay for Team Pink! I just knew you were going to have the girl!! So happy for you guys and can't wait to buy pretty dresses for her! Are you going to tell us all her name (when you decide) or keep us in suspense until she is born?!?!
