Gargle is a girl!

| | Comments (10)

A small but significant update to my dear readers: we got back amnio test results, and all is fine! I didn't want to share that I took the test and was actually nervous about it until now (talk about a scary test to take!). But I do want to share that Dav and I are super duper happy and relieved.

Also, we found out that our Little Bug, Gargle, is a girl. Let the name-choosing game begin!

This is one of many steps of slowly identifying and connecting with this person-to-be. She's 18 weeks now. The surreal quality of all this is gently shifting ...

Julia's reaction? "Yeah!"

Helen said:

Wow, I did NOT expect that but what wonderful news to pop up unexpectedly. I wish you could see my face - I gasped and got this HUGE big smile. I'm so excited to meet her. It's so fun to call her a her! ;-)

I'm so excited for you! I wish I still had some of Kayli's old clothes but I was saving up tons of Ryan and Brenden's. I may be able to get some of Kayli's old clothes back from my sister in law and Richard's cousin if you want them. I know you'll probably get a ton of new and cute things though. I have a lot of baby things for you to pick up for her anytime you want them...

Awesome, baby girls are the best! Now I'm tempted to get you Hello Kitty baby stuff! ;)

I'll just make her seven identical sets of zippy-the-pinhead mu-mus so she doesn't have to waste any brain cycles thinking about clothes. It'll be an easy pattern to sew and should last until she goes to college.

Mie said:

Thanks everyone! I honestly didn't care about the sex, and am just happy Gargle is healthy.

But I foresee me having to rescue Gargle from humiliation through Dav's practicality. Mu-mus? I'll have to point out the shelf full of T-shirts he has. If he doesn't wear the same t-shirt everyday, like Sion wears Coral Life t-shirts, then he ain't got no ammunition.
