A few days before Casey and I left to go to Louisiana for Christmas, we had the big Doctor's appointment where we found out our baby's gender. One of the most frequently asked questions when you are pregnant is, "Do you think it is a girl or a boy?" Casey and I would go back and forth about what we thought our baby's gender might be, but we definitely leaned more towards our baby being a boy.
In the sea of people we knew having babies, all of them were having boys. We figured something was in the water, and we would be having a boy too. We obviously would have been excited either way, but I know we both mentally went into the appointment expecting the Doctor to tell us we were having a boy. I did, however, have one dream about our baby before the reveal and in it our baby was a girl.
When the time finally arrived, we anxiously waited as the Doctor moved our baby around so he could find out. Once he knew, he asked us if we wanted him to just tell us or write it down. We quickly replied, "Just tell us!" Then he said, "You are having.....a GIRL!" We both instantly were a little surprised and so excited!
After the appointment, we stood in the parking lot and just kept looking at each other and saying, "We are having a girl." I instantly wanted to go shopping and buy all the adorable little girl clothes I had been seeing and admiring. I started dreaming of her nursery and what she would look like. Casey was kind of being quiet, so I thought maybe he was disappointed we were not having a boy. I asked him what was wrong.
My sweet baby girl if you ever read this blog one day, know this what your Daddy had to say, "Nothing is wrong at all! I am just thinking of the adventures I am going to take her on, the Daddy daughter dates, making sure she knows she is beautiful, walking her down the aisle..." My heart officially melted in that moment.
Cannot wait to meet her! Thanks for reading! XO
