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...
