Baby #2 is a GIRL!!!
We are so excited! When the ultrasound lady told us, we were completely shocked. I kept asking her to check again, and finally she said, "Look, I've checked 9 times. It is absolutely a girl."
We are so excited, but of course a bit nervous because we are venturing into unknown territory. Our whole world is all about trucks, trains, baseball, pirates, etc. Sam is a boy's boy, and so to now think about pink, and dolls, and dresses is totally foreign to us...but I'm looking forward to learning my way around the little girl section at target!
We just got back from an amazing vacation with the Rasmussen clan (minus Jen, Kurtis, and Cannon, who were sorely missed) and had a wonderful time. It was a Disney cruise, so Sam got to see all of his favorite characters while on board, including his unexplainable hero, Captain Hook. Sam had with him at the time, his pirate hook, pirate telescope, and pirate gun (he carried those things EVERYWHERE) so they gave each other hook high fives. It was pretty awesome.
Sam wasn't feeling well the last few days of the trip, and while were at lunch with everybody towards the end of the trip, he threw up all over himself and his lunch. He then looked at me and said, "Mommy, I have a baby in my tummy. I'm sick!" The poor kidddo equates being sick with having a baby in your tummy!
We are home now and settling back in to our normal routine. Thank you Kimball and Shelley for such a wonderful vacation!
