This morning, Chris, Catherine and I walked down Broadway to the hospital together for the baby’s anatomy scan. The technician spent almost an hour slowly examining every part of the baby’s body. Its brain and organs, face, belly, limbs, and of course – its bottom. It was the most amazing ultrasound by far, and the baby was moving around and sucking its thumb and even gave us a peace sign. Everything is developing perfectly. And we found out that she is a girl, and Catherine will be getting a baby sister. 🙂

Our newest daughter is kicking away in my belly. And I’m taking some time to let this amazing news sink in.

I’m envisioning things like: two little girls in snuggly nightgowns running downstairs on future Christmas mornings to find dollies under the tree.

This is our first Christmas with two daughters, and also our last with just one!
