GIRL!!! A healthy, active girl, too! Yesterday, Joey and I went for our 20 week sonogram. I was so excited that I couldn't sleep the night before. It was like Christmas Eve. Thankfully our appointment was a 9:00 so I didn't have to wait all day. I was very nervous that our sweet baby wouldn't cooperate and we'd leave without knowing...THANKFULLY that did not happen!
She showed herself right away. Initially, Joey thought he was looking at male parts and says, "I've seen all I need to see." The sonogram girl said, "You have if you're looking for a girl." Of course, Joey wanted a boy, but he is already so in love with our daughter.
We took a VHS tape (yes, they still make those!) to record the sonogram. Sam's boyfriend, Matt, is going to to convert the tape to a DVD...THANK YOU, MATT!! :) Right when Joey got home from work he wanted to go over and watch the tape. It was neat to see again.
After the sonogram, I had a mile-long list of people to call. My mom is more than excited to have her first granddaughter! She has said all along our baby is a girl. She would only write down girl names for me, buy girl things, and even told my aunt who is making something to not even use blue! Everyone is very excited and now we're all ready to start spoiling her!!!
Yesterday was bittersweet for us while making our calls because we were not able to call Joey's mom. Last night he said that as happy and excited everyone is and was, no one would be happier than his mom. She loved babies and would always talk about her grandchildren. I told him that I know she's in heaven and was watching us all day yesterday just a crying. I know she's so proud and while she's not here on Earth to experience this with us, I know she has an even better view :)
After the appointment, I went to Sam's because we were going to get pedicures sometime. She wasn't there when I got there. She was actually at our house with the balloons. How nice!!!!! Of course, after pedicures and lunch we went shopping. I tried preparing Joey for the reality that our baby is going to have more clothes than her Mama. He doesn't believe it, but he will understand very soon. :)
Happy Father's Day!
