Ultrasound results

So... on Tuesday Tom and I went in for THE ultrasound. Since our trip to the ER in early December, when the ultrasound tech gave us a 85% chance I was carrying a boy, I have been convinced that we would be welcoming Elijah into our family. At our latest appointment the tech tried to find out the gender right away. The baby has, apparently, inherited my over modestness. It wasn't cooperating! After a wee while she tried again. Imagine my surprise when she said we are having a girl! We are excited. I didn't really care either way- just as long as the baby is healthy. To top it off we get the girl name we like. We were competing against my brother, Jared, and his wife. Hee hee (that is my diabolical laugh for you, Jared) We will be welcoming Aileah Brooklyn around May 30th, 2009!

Congratulations! What a fun surprise. Girls are SO fun to dress! I know Cierra is only four, but when I was pregnant with her, they didn't have all of the fun pink car seats and pink bouncer seats and stuff that they have now - probably a good thing, or I would have gone into a shopping frenzy. The name you have chosen for your baby is beautiful! Again, congratulations (:

Congrats, again! You mentioned that you didn't get a DVD, but you did get a photo, right? I didn't get to see it! I'll have to see it next time I see you.
