The PEARL is a GIRL!!!!

Yesterday was HUGE for us! We finally got to have an ultrasound to find out what the little “Pearl” was and…


We are both so happy! We thought it was a girl, but everyone…and I mean everyone…told us they thought it was a boy. From day one I have told all of my family and friends it was going to be a little bitty girl, so I had a few (and I think that was about two) people stick with “It’s a Girl” but we were completely outnumbered in thinking so.

I am so ready to get started Thinking Pink and buying hair bows and dainty dresses and miniature tea sets. I have been holding back a little…okay not too much. I happened upon another sale and bought a couple more baby dresses (and by a couple I mean 18). The Pearl likes the dresses…she wanted to raise her hand and give us a sweet wave…

We just had a basic 2D ultrasound, but they lady was kind enough to flip the machine into 3D/4D a couple of times so we could see our little Pearl a little clearer. Here she is sucking her thumb...

And here she is saying a little prayer...


It is no secret that from day one Derrick and I were both over the moon for our first (only) niece Amelia. We are proud as punch because we can already see some family resemblance…


  1. That is so nice! Congratulations to you both : ) Those 3D/4D pictures are amazing! I've never seen one before...

  2. Yay! I am so excited its a girl! I can't wait to get started on things for a little girl. Congrats to you both.

  3. YEA!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to meet Baby Girl!!! She already looks sweet, and I just know she is going to love me. HAHA! Amelia and Jack will show her the ropes, don't worry. HA! That's scary, right? I apologize ahead of time for all the bad tricks Amelia will teach her. ;o) Okay, time to go get some stuff monogrammed PiNk!! ;o)

    I LOVE the fam resemblance pics....too funny!

  4. Can you believe my two granddaughters look alike already? I hope I will be able to tell them apart later!!!

  5. There is nothing in the world like a sweet little girl! Get ready for Derrick to become mush.
