Our big sonogram was today, and not only is our sweet baby perfectly healthy, but it's a BABY GIRL!!!!  The sonogram lady was "sure", and I had to tell her to make sure she was really, REALLY sure since I have a monogramming machine!  :)  
I am really excited....I didn't have a sister, so I am so excited to have two girls.  I have been feeling sad for Cale (since Shawn says boys need a brother) but excited for Hayden.  It's a weird feeling to know now for sure that she's a "she".  It still feels a little hypothetical to me (despite my expanding waistline) and it's funny to remember how I felt before I knew the twins.  I worried I wouldn't love them right away (I did), I worried whether or not they'd be healthy (they were), I worried if I could handle two babies at the same time (I'm still here, aren't I??).  I feel the same can I love this baby as much as I love the two I've already got?  I know it will happen, but she still feels like a tiny little stranger for now.  I worry if I can handle three, (all under the age of three) but I know God has blessed me with this family for a reason or two....hopefully He thinks I can handle it.  (Or else he thinks I need to learn a lesson about service or submission or something) 
It feels like SO long before she gets here....but I know that before I know it, I will be living in an even more full house.  I feel undeserving of so much blessing....and to think there was a time that I worried I wouldn't have any babies at all!!  These gifts of babies are another reminder to me that God had a plan for me all along, and I wasted so much time worrying about something that He had already taken care of.  For now, I am enjoying my babies at this HILARIOUS, fun age, and looking forward to meeting our new angel.  I am trying desperately to enjoy this pregnancy, (though my body is betraying me!) since this baby is most likely (99% sure) my last.
