I have to say that I feel like the luckiest lady in the world when I think about my sweet family. Spencer and I found out last week that we are having a sweet little girl in July. I wasn't sure if I had a preference one way or the other, and honestly thought that I'd kind of wanted another little boy. But when the ultrasound tech told us that it was "definitely" a girl, I felt my heart swell up and I was just so excited. I am ecstatic that I am growing a little girl inside that is Spencer's little girl. I see the way he treats my daughter, and he is a wonderful role model. He builds her up, uses unbelievable amounts of patience, and always manages to be convinced by her to read just a few more pages at bedtime. I think it's safe to say that she's fairly tightly wrapped around his finger, even if he's only her stepfather. I am so excited to see him with his own daughter in just a few months.
Spencer has been so excited since the ultrasound last week, and sometimes it
seems that if he's not at work, then his nose is in the baby name book. We do have a name picked out that we are pretty set on, but not set enough that we have announced it to the world. It seems pretty perfect for our girl, and is comprised of a name that I chose and a name that Spencer chose. I think finding out the sex of the baby was what he needed to get really excited about the impending arrival. I imagine the pregnancy will only fly from here on out, and before we know it, we'll be staring at a list of must-haves and realizing that we've only got a few weeks left until The Day. All we can do at this point is to sit back and enjoy the ride from here on out. It seems like it's going to be a fast one, no doubt.
