It's a GIRL!It’s official… we’re having a girl! Yesterday was our big ultrasound appointment, and we’re happy to report that everything looked perfect and is right on track. Baby Lila Jean is expected at the end of February, 2014 and we just can’t wait to meet her!

Liam is so excited about his future baby sister. He’s been telling us all along that he wanted (or that we were having) a girl, and whenever we asked, “Do you think it’s a baby brother or baby sister?” he’s never once suggested brother. I’m glad we didn’t have to “disappoint” him, huh? (Though I’m sure once he understands what it means, he might think otherwise, haha.)

Now all I have to do is try and focus on something other than the myriad of knit and crochet headband, jumper, and toque patterns dancing in my head in varying shades of purples… thank goodness we already have all of the baby essentials we need because that means more money for cute outfits and accessories, right? RIGHT?!

I can’t believe we’re going to have a daughter to add to our perfect little family! I feel so blessed. Life is wonderful.
