Two girls…another little girl to think about walking down the aisle now when I go to shoot every wedding. Another little girl getting into her dress, looking in the mirror, hopefully having me put her veil in or put her necklace on for her…another…little…girl.

Mike is in trouble….but he LOVES it, and good GRIEF is he the cutest dad and guy I know to be surrounded by gals that adore him! We never wanted to say what we “preferred” to have…we truly just wished for and still wish for a happy healthy child, but if someone said “pick one, you get to choose”…we both said GIRL. There has been something about the experience of raising a prissy, dramatic and emotional girl that has made life SO fun and interesting for us and always kept us on our toes. Now, I could see myself with two girls and a little boy down the road for sure..but I definitely wanted at least two girls in the mix πŸ™‚ There is nothing like having a sister..someone you are totally mean to and then call a best friend later in life πŸ™‚

We said months ago we knew. We would be folding laundry, watching tv, making dinner…and just say…..”it’s a girl, I know it…or at least I think so…” and when we went into the ultrasound we kept wondering so much if we were right! We had our good friends Ashley & Jeremy there with us which was so nice, and I’m SURE they were purely entertained by Cammy’s antics the whole time. She was so funny and saying the cutest things…but my FAVORITE THING of the entire visit was Cammy standing on a stool next to me laying on table, and her hand? It was on her sister. She kept her hand there a few times and I couldn’t believe how sweet a one year old could be during an ultrasound. Yes, we bribed with MnM’s too..but she was SO GOOD and she said “sister!” and “girl!” when we kept telling her what was going on!

She has been saying “Ellie Marie!” too and still prefers the baby be a mouse and not a human, but we’ll just have to let her down gently come January πŸ™‚ SO HAPPY TO KNOW NOW! I’m gonna save sooooo much money on clothes now that we can recycle Cammy’s with this baby!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
