Special Delivery from Santa...

On Saturday night, DJ and I got a special package underneath the Christmas tree from SANTA...
So at the Family Hanukkah party in front of both of DJ's grandmothers, his mom and dad, my mom, all three of his brothers and their wives, our niece and four nephews (five if you count the one in Summer's belly), our neighbors Nette & Drew, and my best friend Lindi we opened our gift - and here is what we found...
That's right...
IT'S A GIRL! 

It took them a minute to figure out what was going on but when they did chaos erupted. We definitely caught them off guard because no one knew that we knew and had been sharing their opinions on what they thought the baby was and their hopes all day (all pregnancy? ha).

So here's the story on how we found out about our sweet baby girl... we decided a few weeks ago that we wanted a little bit of time to know ourselves and process the news and just hae it be our secret before we get bombarded with family questions AND as its our first baby we wanted to tell people in a special way and have a bit of fun with it. So we decided to pay the $50 and get an elective ultrasound and find out the gender early - so we went last weekend so we'd have a week to plan and have it just be "ours" -- well our modest little girl had other plans, she would NOT uncross her legs and when she finally did, she moved them to where her feet were in her crotch with the cord - so their was no telling. So, we went back on Thursday and got a recheck (for free thank the lord) - and after a bit of coercing her to move around -- she confirmed what I knew all along - a SWEET BABY GIRL.

I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty darn proud of myself - check out that mothers intuition kicking in before she's even born... DJ was so sweet and cute, he was so excited and scared out of his mind... the realization that there would be two of us on the car ride home set in and he got a little frazzled. He's going to be such a good daddy and I think having a girl is going to be so good for him.

So there it is! Thanks Santa for our early Hanakkah and Christmas present, we love her so much and can't wait to meet our sweet baby girl in May!
