I was WAY OFF!!! It's a GIRL!!
We were watching the monitor, and the tech was telling us about how everything looked, and that it was going to be a few minutes before we got to the good part. She needed to take measurements, and check stuff out. Then in the middle of it, when we weren't expecting anything, she goes 'Oh, it's a girl!'
Um....awkward silence. Well, not really awkward. I was crying, and staring at Daniel's face. And then I started laughing. He just kept asking over and over again if she was sure. I just kept laughing! I couldn't believe it. It did NOT seem real at all. Then the tech kept showing us that the important boy part was missing. :) It was too too funny. D could NOT believe it all. She printed us out pictures (we will post more later). She is waving hi!

Without fail, when D leaves town, I pack my week full of friend time and things to do and blah blah blah. This week will be different. I have one night where I need to be out and about, but I have been able to move everything to that one night. I am ready to catch up on my book club book, get back to my ten hours of sleep, and try to clean up some of the disaster that is our house. With the windows still in the process of being finished, it's quite the scene. Sheets are still over some furniture, most rooms don't have curtains up, stuff has been moved/piled wherever there is space, and there is a never ending film of sawdust all over the place. …
