It's a...

Woo hoo for a girl!

Don't get me wrong, I love my little boy.  And I love the experience of being mommy to a little boy.  But, I'm excited to try my hand at a girl. 

And, it fully justifies my crazed uterus-inspired fabric purchase from several years ago.   So that's a good thing.  

When I originally told my husband my plan for my gender reveal photos with the question mark balloon exploding into a beautiful rain of colored confetti, he was very skeptical.  Said there was no way I'd get the timing just right with the camera to actually catch the balloon popping.  But I had faith.  And it worked out.  I'm only making a slightly weird face, but I'm ok with that considering that there was a balloon popping inches from my ear. 

Anyway, that's it! The newest Baby Spaghetti will be a girl (assuming the ultrasounds aren't wrong or something).  Don't even get me started on names....that's a whole 'nother story for a different day!


  1. Congrats! The pictures are awesome, by the way. =)

    I only have the one boy, but my sister only has 2 girls (the 3 are all around the same age), so I saw what she went through with them. I always have said, "Thank God I had a boy!" since girls are so different. Boys seem so much easier to me. Then again, I was never a "girly girl" so I guess I just don't relate to a lot of it.

    All that being said, now that my brother had a little girl, I'm seeing things with different (older, more mature, more patient?) eyes. I can't spend enough time with my little Monkey. Now I find all the "girly" stuff so much more fun.

    I can't wait to meet Little Spaghettina!

  2. Awww - congrats! And love the reveal pictures.
