Yesterday was magical to say the least.
We found out that we are going to be parents to a daughter.
We are completely overwhelmed with JOY.
I will never forget the moment that Shannon, the ultrasound tech, said, "Alright Mom and Dad, are you ready to know what your child is?" Then, "It's a girl" popped up on to the screen and I began to cry. I looked over at my sweet John and he was smiling ear to ear.
We left with the biggest grins on our faces. My cheeks hurt like it was our wedding day all over again, I couldn't contain my joy.
We made dozens of phone calls and sent texts and spread the news of our daughter. She is already loved by so many people. The blessings that we are receiving through her are amazing.
I went to work and taught for 4 hours and could hardly concentrate I was on a high from the whole day.
When I came home my mother and sister surprised me and John with a beautiful dinner complete with everything pink! My mother set the table with a full vase of pink gladiolas. We sipped on Raspberry Gingerale and talked about our new little person who will be joining our family in just a short time.
My sister used the linens that came from the old Oat House on The Murphy Ranch. My MIL Kathy gave them to me last time we were down there. They must have been 30 to 40 years old and in beautiful condition. They were all pressed and ironed as perfectly as can be, my guess is that Granny Joy got a hold of them one day. I can't wait to use them for parties and in my home someday.
Our little girl is coming to join us in January! We cannot agree on how to spell her name so for now we will call her Baby EJ. I can't wait to kiss all of her fingers and toes.
