I think that Eisley is the only person who had guessed girl instead of boy—and I especially was expecting to see some, shall we say, business on the ultrasound, mostly because this pregnancy has felt so different than the first. But when the tech did the big reveal, she said, "Well, there's nothing there." For a hot second I was actually thinking something was wrong with our son and he was missing some very necessary parts, but then it dawned on me: Oh, wait. Does that mean…it's a girl? SERIOUSLY? Jay and I smiled at each other from across the room, and were both in a happy-sort-of-shock. Eisley, of course, was over the moon. I know she would have been thrilled with either a brother or a sister (as we would have been so blessed to have either!), but I know firsthand that there's just something special about sisters. I'm kind of excited that we get to give her that experience, too.
Sisters, sisters! Sing it with me!
And I tell you, I couldn't possibly be more grateful for this gift of another precious child. So, so thankful.
