baby girl

I might have ordered this from etsy today:

(the headband, not the baby)

If you haven't heard, I'm knocked up. Today we found out it's a baby girl, and we're pretty freakin excited.

I had been dreaming about a boy and hoping for a boy all along, but the last couple of weeks all I could think about was girl stuff. Girly outfits and tiny bracelets, girly everything.

Lucas and I couldn't be happier.

The only bad news: we have a list of about a hundred boy names, but zilch on girls. This website, babynamewizard, has been helpful (and fun and addicting) ... but maybe you have some ideas?

PS One more thing - if you get a chance, will you say a little prayer for my cervix? It needs to stay closed and even though it looks great now, it's my greatest cause of stress. Thanks guys.

PPS For those who aren't aware: I'm at 18 weeks, due January 15th, it's a girl. We're dying of excitement.

(17 weeks. I hate taking pictures of myself.)

Ah, you look so cute! I am so excited for you! I will for sure keep you and your cervix (not to be confused with the sternum - Brady Morton in high school - haha) in my prayers. You'll be a great Mom Mindy!

uhh i might be buying that headband. so so cute. you you look awesome. love your perfectly round belly. We like family names.. our next pick for a girl is Nevada. looking back at middle names seem to be a good source for our name list too. Good luck! o, and I'll pray for your cervix..always important to have that behave.
congrats again! I'm so excited!

This is seriously the best news ever!!! It makes me sooo happy. =) I can't wait to meet the little one. As for names... I'll start working on it! I think once upon a time you tried to talk your sister into the name Emmery. I don't know if you still like it or not!!??
