Girls Write Out
Monday, April 14, 2008

I'm still sooo excited about our baby girl who is coming soon! We got 3D ultrasound pictures but I couldn't get my scanner to work so these are generic ones. But you can see her tiny feet and hands, her face, and uh, the fact that she's a girl. I was sick yesterday so Dave of course took the pictures to church to show off. Everyone is excited for us and he was proudly showing them off. The preacher talked about staying away from sin like off-color jokes, pornography, etc. Good message Dave said.

Well what does my husband do? After church he goes up to Preacher and says, "Hey, you want to see a picture of a naked girl?" The pastor's face sags, and he says, "I just preached about that!" I think he thought Dave hadn't been listening and was about to tell an off-color joke. LOL Dave whips out the pictures of Princess (he calls her Princess Porkchop because we called her Porkchop before we knew she was a girl) and shows them to Preacher who started to laugh.

Some men's humor. LOL

Congratulations!! She is beautiful!

Those 3-D pictures are really amazing. They didn't have those 10 years ago when I was having babies!

I think it's great that you continue to be excited. It reminds me of the verse in Proverbs 13:19: A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul.

I know you (and your kids) have been longing for this child a long time. It's fun to get a small glimpse of your joy!

They didn't have ANY ultrasounds when I was having my kids. It's just a miracle to see. I'll feel like I know her by the time she gets here.

Your granddaughter's beautiful! It's so cool that you can see what she'll look like before she's born. Of course, that doesn't beat cradling her in your arms and buying her pink. : )

I never knew about those 3-D ultrasounds. God willing, my brother and sister-in-law are having a baby, and now I can't wait to see the ultrasounds!

LOL! Loved the story--and the name "Princess Porkchop."

Isn't that nickname cute? LOL At least Grandpa thinks so. LOL

That is hilarious!

And ultrasounds have really improved. You can actually tell it's a baby!
