i must say- i called this one. sort of. i kinda assumed this one was a boy- but i said girl anyway. you know?
so when the tech said GIRL i wasn't really shocked or anything- just like...oh snap! another GIRL!
the husband looked like a mix of pleased + terrified. i really think he thought this was a boy. he is scared for his life now. he's pretty sure that he's never going to get to sit down & spend 7 hours watching the NFL Network in peace ever again.
poor man. anywho. so yes- baby bird #2 is a little lady loo! and she looks perfect (and big...hold me) and i'm stoked! i've got girl things & i know how to "do" girl stuff & i'm pretty sure that alex & #2 will be bff's forever & ever. hooray!
but you know what else this means? this means that the hubs is dead set on gracing the world with a little boy made from his sperm. so yes, 3+ kids it is. maybe. probably. eventually- i dunno? oy!
names? we're working on that one. i'm actually RELIEVED that there is a little lady inside of me- because we can agree on girl names. not so much on boy ones. so this saves us.
soooo- now that you've all passed out from the excitement (right?) we can move along.
i'd like to show you what Sunday consisted of:
sunday is my "sleep in" day- so when i got up & came out to the living room, this is what i saw. ::melt.puddle.on.floor.me:: you catch my drift. precious.
however the in-laws were headed over so i had to wake up the hubs & move the sleeping child to her own spot:
be still my heart.
eventually she woke up (when grandma arrived) and spent the rest of the day being doted on. and while grandma doted, mom cooked & daddy & grampa 99% finished the chicken coop:
once the chicken wire goes up this baby will be complete. if i were a chicken i'd want to live here forever. yes i would.
and as for the chickens- well i have no new pics. my bad. they've basically doubled in size & seem to be establishing a pecking order of sorts. i'll get pics ASAP.
and there you have it.
