And I'm still totally in shock! I 110% thought this entire time that we were having a boy, I was so so sure of it, ha! But our ultrasound on Thursday clearly showed a baby girl and we are beyond excited :) It was honestly one of the coolest moments of my life so far. As soon as we got started in the right "area", the US technician said "do you want to take a guess?" to which I responded with "boy for sure" and she was like "do you want to guess again?" and I just kind of stared at her before she said "it's a girl!" - such a surreal, awesome moment. I've always wanted to have a daughter and it means so much to me that after losing my mom at a young age, that I get another chance at having that mother/daughter relationship. And Nick will be the cutest with a little girl ;) Definitely all the emotions!
We ended up telling our parents when they all came to town on Saturday night. We decided to wrap up a big box full of balloons and it was so fun to watch them tear into it and shriek when the pink balloons flew out! Afterwards, we had a nice long dinner where we talked about all things baby: showers, nurseries, names, everything. Is it weird that I still can't believe this is happening?! Despite the fact that our family and friends have already begun spoiling us with all things pink and girly, it still almost feels like we're playing pretend!
I'm SO excited for everything that is to come over these last 20 weeks and simultaneously hope the time goes so fast so we can meet her and also so slow because there so much to do! But my biggest hope is that things continue healthily and happily for both of us. Thank you for all of your well wishes on Instagram and Twitter this weekend - it for sure made sharing our big news that much more fun! You guys are the best. Hope you all had fabulous weekends as well!
