It's a.....

We had our big ultrasound on Friday and found out that Piper and Dax are having a baby sister!!

We are all really excited and can't wait to meet Ansley Claire this Fall. Piper cried when she heard the tech tell us it's a girl and the moment was so precious to me. Piper has prayed for a baby sister all her own since she was about 4 years old. She can't wait to have Ansley here to play with and dress up. Dax was pretty bummed to hear that he wasn't getting the brother he hoped for. I told him that after Ansley is a little older he will go back to having his own room and never have to worry about sharing again. HA! I'm not sure it really helped much.

I am super excited to be having another girl and so glad that Piper will have a sister. Not having a sister myself, I always felt like I was missing out on something. I know they will be pretty far apart (7.5) years, but I am hoping for the best. I am also glad that while Dax is moving to the middle child spot after 5 years as the baby that he will retain the status of only boy to help him feel special.

We are busy getting ready for Ansley's arrival and hope the next several months fly by until she is here!
