Baby 2.0: It's a GIRL!!!

>> Saturday, July 21, 2012

Words cannot even begin to describe the emotions that we went through yesterday as we found of the gender of our sweet baby 2.0.

Up until about a week ago, I was borderline thinking boy/girl...and leaning more towards a little boy. In fact, when my sister was last in town I even had my mom buy "Baby Ben's" coming home outfit.

Fast forward to this week and I started to get that gut feeling that 2.0 was actually a girl! I think it was a combination of Jackson becoming so insistent that he was having a baby sister and really noticing how different my body looks with this pregnancy.  With Jackson, I grew much wider before outward.

When we got to the ultrasound Jackson immediately started telling everyone we were here to see his baby sister.  He even pointed to the baby girl pictures on the wall and called them baby sister.  Before we walked into the actual room, he touched my tummy and said come on baby sister.  Talk about melt my heart.  I looked at Mr. and told him that we were in serious trouble if this wasn't a baby sister!

We quickly got set up in the room and it wasn't long before we were told the gender of our baby.  Mr. shouted out that he saw a penis and I kind of thought I did too, but it looked so different then what I remembered Jackson's ultrasound to look...and that is when Mr. was corrected that what he was looking at was not a penis, but his daughter!

Mr. turned a white as a ghost and stayed that way through the evening.  I shed a tear of joy as I realized how much I wanted a daughter.  Jackson looked at us both like we were crazy because he knew all along!

Everything looked great on the ultrasound, she is a healthy baby girl weighing 5oz.  She measured one day ahead, and has extremely long legs! 

The night before I had a dream about Jackson holding a bunch of pink balloons, so I felt the urge to make my dream come true:)

We can't wait to meet our daughter, Matilda Jayne "Mattie Jayne" Wilson.  She will be named after my great-grandma and mom.
