We made a family affair out of finding out whether we are having a boy or a girl.
The suspense was getting the best of both you and me as we waited a good 25 minutes’ worth of the nurse showing us all the signs of your sibling being a healthy baby before the mltechnician finally revealed to us that you are having a… sister!
Mommy appeared perfectly calm during the wait… it was you and me that had way too much nervous energy.
During those never-ending 20 minutes of suspense leading up to the big reveal, you said 3 things that were just so hilarious to me…
When the technician asked whether you thought you were going to have a brother or sister, you responded:
Shortly afterwards, the technician showed us the baby’s spine. You looked up at the monitor screen on the wall and excitingly proclaimed,“Oh, that’s the baby’s teeth!”
From then, until we finally got confirmation that it’s definitely a girl inside Mommy’s tummy, you kept asking, “When can I see the baby’s butt?”
I can tell you’re not really able to process yet that you will be able to see baby Holly in April. It’s too big of a concept for you to process right now.
But you celebrated at Whole Foods, to some degree, where we bought you a new stuffed animal for your collection. First you chose a hedgehog, but then after I had always Instagrammed the event…
You changed your mind and got a pink pig instead…
By the way, Mommy is perhaps the happiest I’ve ever seen her as long as I’ve known her. In her quiet way, I was able to witness just how much it means to her that Holly is on her way.
As for you, I feel a feeling you’ll come around once your sister after gets here.
