Baby Gibson is a................... And is now due on 12.28.09!!!!!!



Dan and I in the waiting room before going in for the sonogram.





I was in the room alone until the tech was able to get the measurements he needed--he assured me everything looked great! I had asked him not to tell me the baby's sex until my husband was with me. I was so giddy just laying there by myself. What was it going to be----a boy or a girl????!!!!?????? This was one of my favorite moments.






Self portrait of me guessing what it was going to be....little did I know.......







And Dan just found out what he is going to be the dad of a....................



Yep--he knows now and so do I!!!





After Dan was able to see the baby's sex......my mom stepped up to see. We thought it would be more special to invite my mom to the sonogram as well. We only wish Bev and Don could have been present!


They were both so cute and giddy!! This was my view from the bed---I loved every minute of seeing them both so excited!!!



I could not believe how excited I was! Especially since we were both in shock that we had just found out what we were having.









..and baby makes three!!



Telling Jami and Jill......we had to grab Jami out of the shower so we could tell them both at the same time. They will probably kill me for putting this picture up----but I don't care ;).



Telling Bev and Leslie. They are in Pennsylvania--so we tried to document it the best that we could. We do have video of telling each family member on speaker phone.





Right after telling Sarah.




Telling Carrie and Grant.



You bet----it's a girl. I was a little bit worried about Dan's response to this. But as soon as the tech said he was sure the baby looked good and it was a girl--Dan started smiling. Over the next hour he seemed nervous. I asked him why---he said he was scared to be the dad of a little girl. I assured him that she will think he hung the moon and that he will always make her feel safe. After that---wow---he showed his true feelings. Over our dinner date he said he HAD to go get her an outfit tonight. I was in shock. He first said something about getting "fairy wings" so she could play in them. WHAT??!? I was in shock yet again. He was so excited. As we were looking for what he called his "perfect first outfit" he spotted a pink barbie fishing pole. I am sure that is next on his list. In the mean time I found this adorable outfit! He said he is buying his first outfit online. HA-HA. Seriously too cute!!




YES WE DO!!!!



Baby Jae Elizabeth Gibson!!!!! Isn't she cute!!!??!!! I already want to squeeze her little cheeks!!! While we were watching her move in my tummy---I thought she looked like she was playing volleyball. Dan of course said it looked more like she was casting and setting the hook. Either way she was very active. The tech told us she has long limbs and looked like a perfect baby. Either way---I am in love with this little girl!




We already love her more than she will ever know!! Thank you for all of your prayers today---they were felt and heard. I think this picture looks like she is eating chips and salsa! Ha-ha. Also I would have loved to have put a sono picture of the proof that she's a girl---BUT---her father will not let me show that online. He thinks it's inappropriate---how funny is that----he is already the ultra protective dad!

    A Big Hello: A found your website from
    Sarah/Bev/Barb's blog. My daughter is also having a baby and is due Dec. 27th. Her

    How exciting - we sure can relate to y'all.
    Your mom and sisters are adorable - or shall I say grandma and aunts!

  7. Thank you for all the sweet comments!! I am so excited to have a baby girl---I am afraid to get my hopes up because I do know there is always a chance it "might" end up a boy----but the tech took 7 good shots so hopefully it's correct ;). We would be thrilled no matter what---I just don't want to have to return all my pink stuff! Ha-ha we will see!!
