Perfect

First off, the really important news:

The baby is healthy with all major organs accounted for and all bones where they should be. The baby is measuring on time and my cervix is nice and long.

The scan took awhile, especially because our Little Sweetpea was modest and wouldn't move their legs apart. The technician looked for a long time and couldn't determine the sex, so she move on to the brain and spine. Then, the baby flipped over, so the tech went for another look and. . .

Sweetpea is a healthy, beautiful little GIRL!!!!

Her name is Emma Grace and we couldn't be more pleased. We are so blessed to have two beautiful, healthy children. As the tech said, "Awww, now you have the perfect little family!"

I couldn't agree more (though our family was perfect the day that Will joined us and would have been perfect with another boy). I am over the moon with happiness and excitement. Oh, and of course, for those wondering, my mom's reaction was appropriate. But then again, it's what she wanted.

Thank you for the love and support. I will be scanning the pictures as soon as possible so I can post them here.

What a wonderful day!!!!!
