A postscript

So, yes. We are having a girl.


And it's crazy and wonderful and a surprise to me, but I must say that the boys were all expecting it. They are THRILLED! We caught the moment on video when we told them about the news:

Their joy was palpable, even (especially?) Jake's.

And now I'm about to do something I REALLY don't want to do. I've had a bunch of requests to post some pictures of myself pregnant. It's not like I'm not TAKING any pictures of myself ... I mean, I scrapbook. And regardless of how little I like the way I look, it's important to me that there are pictures of me at all shapes and sizes in the kids' scrapbooks.


12 weeks:

And no, I didn't go to work looking like that. I wore a cute black-and-white jacket over that shirt and bootie.

16 weeks (with no outlet power and therefore no way to do my hair):

20 weeks:

Internet, I'm only halfway there and I'm wearing shirts I wore when I was 36 to 38 weeks with Nathaniel. And I'm still down six pounds from my starting weight, because I lost 10 during all the nausea. What will I look like NEXT month? OMG.

Love the video!!! It's great to see how excited the boys are about their baby sister.

So do they have a say in her name? I'm thinking I heard, "Amelia" right at the end, which is a beautiful name!
