It's a...

GIRL! We're having a girl!

On Saturday our family drove to the other side of town for a "gender-guaranteed" ultrasound. A friend had recommended this guy who has worked in the medical field before and now does ultrasounds as a little side business. He was very nice and gave us quite a good discount because he found out that Ted is active duty. We also got a nice 12-minute DVD and VHS recording of the images, plus lots of great picture printouts that came out much better than the ones from base.

Funny thing is, Ted and I weren't surprised at all by the news. We knew from the beginning that this baby had to be a girl. Charis, though, had a glow on her face all day long. She's finally getting her baby sister!

Earlier that morning I had asked the children what they thought our baby was, a boy or a girl. Tobin gave the cutest answer: "I think she's a cute little baby girl!"

Wonderful!!! How exciting, especially for Charis! It is so neat when the Lord answers the prayers of his little children--what a faith-builder for her! Now I can't wait for her to be born to see what neat name you all come up with! : )
