Girl? Boy? The BIG Reveal...

Today was the day. The day. The day where I found out if the babe was a boy which I had assumed the entire time or a girl which would add to my princesses.


Before I go on, I have to say that today was bittersweet for a few reasons--mainly Leo being away. It's been hard on me the past month or so just realizing that he wouldn't be here to share in my happy day. In a way it didn't bother me as much today as I had imagined it would. Partly because since being a single, expectant mother of two under the age of four has grown on me--or rather I have grown into the roll.


Anyway. The day. Thank God my appointment was at 8:00 this morning--and my sweet friend came and watched the girls for me due to no children allowed for the appointment. I left around 7:00 and was so giddy! I had a hard time falling asleep last nite wondering if our last baby would be a son or a daughter.


So...we? Are having a....




GIRL!!


Our little Brynlie (pronounced Bryn-Lee) will be here on/around May 24th. I'm in love with my sweet baby so much and feel incredibly blessed right now to be the Mom of three, yes three, princesses!


And believe me--I've heard in the past 11 hours that I've known Brynlie was a "she" if we would keep trying for a boy. That my friends? Is a post for another day...(short answer in case you are wondering--no...we are done with babies. Three girls? Amazingness. I couldn't ask for anything more).

Oh, congrats my friend!

I, too, think it's more about the number of children you have and NOT aboutthe gender.
