IT'S A GIRL!!!!!!!!!!

Yay hooray! Ric and I went in for my ultrasound on Monday and found out (I'm sure thanks to the many prayers offered on our behalf) that this baby is a girl! I'll admit, I'm pretty excited! =) I would have been happy with either - three little boys in a row would have been awfully cute, after all - but it'll be fun to do something different. And due to what Ric and his brothers refer to as the "Rogers Family Curse", I've been worried that maybe I wouldn't even get a girl. Dad Rogers said that I've just given all of my sisters-in-law something to hope for! So Ric will tell you that I was quite happy about it. Time to start buying pink!
I think Ric is a bit unsure about how to be a good daddy to a little girl. In fact, he had the doctor check again - just to make sure it wasn't a mistake. But I have total confidence that he'll figure it out and know he will totally adore her!
Stratton's response was great; he said, "Oh yay!" and as I was kneeling on the ground to tell him, he immediately dropped down to my belly and kissed and hugged it! Cute big brother!
As for Creighton, he has no idea what is going but we're preparing him with one of my little sister's baby dolls and he likes to haul that thing all around the house (thrown over his shoulder like a sack of potatoes) and poke it in the eyes and give it slobbery kisses - hopefully he'll do well!
It looks like the baby is doing well and they also told us that she is measuring a week early, so at my next doctor's appointment we may have to see if this is supposed to be a February baby instead of a March baby...


  1. I'm SOOO excited for you!!! What will your world look like with a splash of pink!!?? I'm so excited to see!

  2. Yeah, that is so exciting. I love my boy, but every mommy needs at least one girl to spoil and buy needless accessories for. Have fun!!

  3. Hey Serity! Found your blog through Rebecca's! So cute! I had no idea you were expecting #3!!!! Congrats! Especially on the girl!
