We are having a….

We are having a…

…BABY!!! A healthy beautiful baby.

Ok. I know that’s not what you came here for.

So, is baby a lone lady or will we have a band of brothers? At today’s ultrasound, it seemed as though we looked at every inch of baby’s body. Left arm, right arm, left leg, right leg, brain, heart, feet. When the technician was finished, she asked what I thought. I said “I think we are having a fourth boy.” She didn’t say a word, just shook her head.

It took me a moment to grasp and then I began to cry. Ugly cry. We are having a daughter!!! I am going to be the mommy to a baby girl. Ryan gets to be the daddy to a little girl. My boys are going to have a baby sister. It’s all so new and exciting and I’m not even sure I’ve been able to really process it all.

The things that make this feel different:

  • I have been saving pieces of my wardrobe for a future daughter. Glad I’ll be able to put all those dresses to good use.
  • My basement is filled with baby boy hand me downs. I cannot wait to save some for the boys as keepsakes, reuse some for baby girl but mostly, I am excited to donate a large portion and clean out my basement.
  • Redecorating the nursery. Give me ALL the florals 🌸 🌼 🌺
  • Finally, Ryan, he is a great man. All our children are lucky to have a father like him but the idea of him being a daddy to a girl makes me very happy.

I can say one thing for sure, our daughter will be the perfect grand finale to our family of six.

With love from Detroit,

Callie

    I don’t think Ryan understands the power of a daddy daughter love. I happy for all of you.
    I have a feeling Hudson will be coming around once he meets his little sister.

      Thank you! I have already started browsing girl clothes online. Clothes and teeny tiny shoes!

    Sugar and spice and everything nice…but I’m sure your little girl will be a “firecracker” and grow up strong from dealing with 3 big brothers!

      Thanks Sue. I always say that having brothers made me the kind of person who didn’t need someone to protect them. They have a way of toughening you up.

      Thanks Carrie! I cannot imagine how excited you must have been when you found out Annabelle was coming. Not that Keegan, Drake, Hunter and Payton weren’t joys but there’s just something so wonderful about this.
