We are very excited to announce that we are having a baby girl! We found out on Tuesday afternoon and since then this whole process has taken on a new reality. It was already an amazing experience but somehow knowing that it's a girl makes a huge difference. The responsiblity we feel to prepare for her and pray for her is suddenly so much greater and the connection is so much deeper, especially for Brandon I think. It was sweet to see how things like names, which were a joke a few days ago, suddenly became serious because now it is no longer just a baby but his daughter that we're thinking about. What an awesome responsibility and gift we've been given and we are praising God for that today!
As soon as we found out that we were having a girl we began spreading the news. My best friend Melinda surprised us the next morning with this great sign posted on our garage and announcing our news to the neighborhood. :)
