Baby Girl!

Dan and I went to the 20 week ultrasound this morning. We are so excited to say that we are having a baby girl!! I was trying not to wish for a girl too much. It would have been great to have a little brother for Elliott, so either way would have been good. I think it will be fun to experience both boys and girls. Elliott wants to name her Polly Pocket. We'll have to figure something else out...

I've been feeling pretty good. My Colitis was flaring up badly for the first 14 weeks. I've gone back on Prednisone (a low dose, thankfully) and things seem to be under control. Last Friday night D & I went to see "The Kings Speech". Right in the middle of the movie I felt a huge kick, baby must like Colin Firth too.

Elliott is continuing to talk, a lot! His favorite thing to ask is, "What's your name?" or, a variation of that with middle and last names. All of his cars and guys have to have names. He amazes Dan and I with his memory of things. He will bring up an event that was 3 months ago that we haven't talked about since. We are working on potty training again, after taking a break. It's slow going but I think we are making much more forward progress than the first time we tried.

That will be exciting. Maybe a July 7th birthday? Sawyer likes to name things and often the names are Little Daddy, Honey and Cool One.

Well I did see the news on FB but am happy to see it here too! Fun times ahead... and I agree that something other than Polly Pocket might be best! :-)
