It's a GIRL!

A few reasons I am excited to have a baby girl (eeee!) :

1. I have always wanted to explore my crafty side, and for some reason it seems easier to do with girls. I'm not sure what I'll find when that exploration begins.....I'm not anticipating much :)

2. There is now an equal level of testosterone and estrogen in my home, something I have never before experienced.

3. Hair and nails. 'Nuff said.

4. I am significantly more clueless when it comes to girls (which seems odd since I am one?) and am looking forward to yet another challenge in child rearing.

5. John is even more clueless than I am. For some reason I find this incredibly attractive.

6. Getting to decorate a girl's room, and getting to use some of my old stuff. SO FUN!

7. Although I myself am not a huge fan of pink, there is so much of it out there! And it's so cute!

8. OWLS......This might seem strange, but trust me, it's cool.

9. The grandmas. I think they are more excited then I am.

10. Rowan gets to have a baby sister. Exactly as the Lord planned.

Let the fun begin!


  1. Congratulations! That is so very exciting!!!! When are you due? Did you know that we're going to be having a little boy in mid March? I'm wondering if we're due around the same time. We definitely need to chat sometime - I could use some serious tips and wisdom on babies!

  2. Ahhhhh!!!! That's so exciting! A little boy! Boys are sooo fun! Baby #2 is due March 16 so I bet we're close! I'd love to chat although I'm not sure how much wisdom I have :) I definitely have some stories to share though! We'll be in IL for a week in November. Maybe we can make a trip out your way?

  3. I'm due the 17th of March! How crazy! We would love to see you guys in November. I'm sure we won't be the only ones but if you have any extra time let us know - we could make the trip over to you if you're not planning on coming here. Also, I loved your post about DIY - I think the same things sometimes. Pinterest has been inspiring me to be more crafty. We'll see if that happens... :)

  4. Congrats, Ashley and John! Josiah and I miss you guys and wish you and the new little ones the best!
