It's a Girl!

Today we had another ultrasound, and we found out that we are having a girl! Of course, we are only half-way there, so it will be a while before any of us really get to meet her. We are extremely excited by the news, and now the name selection process can begin in earnest. This also opens the door on some of the purchases and/or gift registrations that might be influenced by this knowledge.

The ultrasound photos taken today are not very good, so we will probably not be able to post them in our photo gallery. We may try to scan them to see if anything will be visible, but do not count on seeing them.

Of course, the most exciting news we received today is that our little girl still appears to be healthy and developing normally. That is such a great miracle, and we pray that the pregnancy continues to go as well as it has been.

Baby #1 is on the Way

Summer has been busy, so we are a little late with this announcement...

We are expecting! Maribel is due on January 12, which still seems far away but rapidly approaching.

There are a ton of things to do between now and then, and of course we will not get all of them done in time. We have not been freaking out much yet; that will probably come later. For now, we are just very excited and looking forward to the adventures ahead.

Pregnancy seems to suit Maribel well. She has not really been sick at all, and I think she gets sick less often now than usual. She started reading What to Expect When You're Expecting but did not really like it. She really likes The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy, and she is getting all of her buying advice from Baby Bargains, which should be no surprise to anyone.

Not much to see, but we have posted ultrasound photos on our photo gallery.

We will probably have an opportunity to find out the sex of the baby later this month. If we find out, we will let you know!
