Mack is 2 years old today! TWO! I can’t believe it.

You all want to see the belly!
Here’s the belly I’ve been hiding on the blog for a while now.
Really cute & round. Love it.
12 weeks 2 days.
3rd baby really popped early.

Today I went in the afternoon to Mackenzie’s class to celebrate his birthday!
He ate his piece of birthday cake to the very last drop.
This kid LOVES cake.
He would have liked the plate if we’d have let him.

Some garden updates!

The little tomato plants aren’t so little anymore.
Must start pruning soon.

This evening my family went out to celebrate Mack’s birthday as well as mine,
to one of my fave Italian Restaurants.

I got this awesome camera bag by Golla from my sister.
It’s beyond awesome. Thanks sis!

Oh! And by the way, we’re having a GIRL!!!
We are beyond excited!
Words cannot even describe!
Who said there was only a 13% chance!
I like beating odds!
I won't be painting the baby's room until after my next Ultrasound,
just to be sure, but it's a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can now knit in pink! Whoot!
Our daughter already has a name.
Though, we’ll save that for another time.
She’s been named long before she was conceived.
It’s been our girl’s name all along.
She’s very wanted this princess.
Not only did both an internal & external Ultrasound show no “dangly bits” between the legs, but the heart rate was really fast
(beats per minute) which my doctor when listening as well, from her experience, predicted a girl. Enough for me!

ps- I love these shoes. Wow. Oh, and this photo.

ps- Just a reminder that I'm throwing a contest for this entire month! Details are here.

Congratulations on the no-dangly-bits :) I knew you could do it! I'll be excited to see all your preparations for this much wanted arrival. In other news - wow - that dress and shoes are incredible, as is the garden - maybe if I water my flowers this year Chris might agree to some veggies next year..I have a history of killing them with neglect so he gets all 'mmm-hmmm + raised eyebrows' when I talk vegetable gardening.... lol

kate-the-enabler said...

Ack! forgot the most important thing to comment! Happy Birthday little Mack - hope it's super special!

Shelby said...

Anie said...

beautiful belly! I'm jealous... though I'm not ready for no. 3 yet!

Tara said...

Congrats again on your little girl! Have you got enough pink in your stash? :)

carolyn said...

The same thing happened to us - never expected a girl because my husband's family is full of boys and all the cousins are boys...but we had a girl! And it's wonderful. You must be floating on cloud 9! Can't wait to see if she has red hair. Her big brothers will love her! And she'll be tough because of them. :)

I know I have been a terrible friend and owe you a nice, long email, but I wanted to post really quick and tell you CONGRATS!!!! You've been in my thoughts a lot lately, but this is the first time I've turned on my computer in about two weeks. Hugs, my friend!
