Gender Confirmed

It IS a girl. Last week Ben's dad (who is an ER doc) took me down to the hospital and snuck me into ultrasound. It took about 2 minutes total. They put the little do-hicky on, squished it around a couple times and there it was...a little bum with open legs and a couple little lines, which aparently is what girls look like in ultrasound, black and white, fuzziness. There happened to be 2 women in the little room and both said, "yep, that's a pretty clear girl."

We are excited and my mother and grandmother have almost outfitted this child completely. Not quite, but they're getting there.

Also, if wondering - we don't know what we're gonna call her.

Yay!!!! So, so exciting. I think you're going to love having a little girl :) And she is a very lucky girl to have such great big brothers to look out for her! :) Hooray! Where are you guys right now? I still have a little package to send you, but I'm not sure where it should go! :)

Also, I love the name Jane for a little girl. Such a great name and Janie is really cute, too. It's Anna's middle name so I won't use it for a first name, I should have thought of that before :)
