It's a Girl...well 80% sure!

How is it possible to have an 80% girl you ask? Easy, it refuses to move from it's reclined position. It has been in the same position since our last ultra-sound. The Dr. tried to move it around, but there was no moving it from it's hammock-like relaxed position. When it did finally move, it was a quick shift, not wanting to show us the "goodies". The Dr. said, "Ah! I think I caught something, do you all want me to give you a percentage?" For the love of everything that is holy, yes...that is why we came here. He was 75% sure it was a girl. Then she he showed us these 3 lines, that I guess signify that it's a girl. He said it was in breach position so it was difficult to tell, but he said, "Actually, I'm going to bump that up to 80% sure it's a girl." We left feeling....well extremely confused. Erica was not convinced at all it was a girl, I am pretty sure that it is... an 80% is more than passing...I love 80%'s! I'm afraid to know what a 20% girl or boy looks like. We will have another ultrasound in a couple of weeks to confirm the gender. Here's the deal, we are in "Daughter Denial" I have only brothers and Erica's side has only nephews...what do we do with girls? Everyone is stunned...to be continued....

Wahoo! It had to happen some day! It's going to be so fabulous...I think everyone will figure out real quick what to do with a girl. She'll be adorable! Pretty exciting!

Congrats. We had an 80% girl for a few weeks and then came to find out it was 100% boy, so you never know. Haha. Hopefully this doctor's percentage is more accurate than ours. Cute booties.

I'm one of those who still is a little confused. I'm not convinced yet. Not that I don't hope it's a girl because I think that would just be WAY cute...but...I'm just not convinced. Those shoes are ADORABLE!

Yes stunned, but thrilled!! I think 80% is a good indicator, don't you? And of course, she needs to wear those adorable bootie/shoes.

Hopefully, you'll know 100% next ultrasound and we won't have to be in daugther denial.

See you guys in a minute!

This is way too fun--- finding people this way. How ARE you?! Yeah I've known Jenie for a little while, and now we just recently moved into a new house in her ward. She brought us cookies one night and mentioned Tuila (I cannot figure out how to spell that) and I said, do you know any Smarts? "Uh, I AM a Smart." It was pretty small-world-ish. I mentioned you were my friend from college and Ross butted in and said "they dated" in front of Brittney. So my first day in Activity Days--- (my new calling) Brittney announces as I introduce myself that I dated her mom's cousin. This is all far to "and then... and then..." for a blog comment isn't it?

Well it's fun to reconnect. Your wife is gorgeous-- you look great-- I'm so excited for you guys to have a girl. They're the best. :)
