IT'S A GIRL!

Well, we were RIGHT! Fetus Fix #2 is most definitely a GIRL! And praise the Lord the doctors say that she looks "perfect." We are so so so excited! Looking at this picture you might wonder how the doctor could tell the baby's gender.
But from this side, it's clear! Not only does she like pink, she apparently likes to sleep on the placenta.
When the nurse told us the news, she asked Rock if he knew any good names for a girl. He replied "Boy." Then he started calling her "Skeleton Baby." Hmmmm... might take someone a little while to get used to this idea.First picture of the four of us! Too bad we all wore blue... from here on out it's gonna be pink, pink, pink.
Although for the record (and for all you grandmothers who are already purchasing outfits) I prefer my favorite color red over pink.
UPDATE: Just to clarify the comment above. I love pink and I love it on little girls. I know that Fetus Fix #2 will be wearing mostly pink for the first few years of her life and I am pumped about that. But I just wanted to throw it out there that I like red too.

congrats! i've been checking your blog today for the news! girls are awesome! oh, and I agree ... pink isn't my fave either. but you better get used to it - it's SO hard to find girl things without pink of some sort in them! thankfully, unlike me, you're a crafty girl and can just sew everything for her. :)

julie speaks the truth. pink will prevail. although i'll be sure to look for red and purple and yellow and green (all colors I particularly like--and all somewhat...girly...i suppose).
but you've got one grandmother who will not be able to resist. i mean, she's been waiting for ages to buy pink things for a granddaughter, so i think you're gonna need to take a few deep breaths and resign yourself to a bit of pink clothing.
BUT we should start a "red is the new pink" campaign for showers and stuff.

SO SO SO SO SOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!
I already got a little red outfit for you a while ago....I knew it was going to be a girl! ;)
Actually I didn't for sure, but it was a really cute outfit and I was just hoping! ;)
Hope it fits her at the right time! ;)
Love,
