Pink It Is!

Now that we've given our parents ample time to tell everyone, I can officially tell everyone here
I'm having a girl!
Of course I'd love a boy just as much. But, I'm thrilled about having a girl. I'm looking forward to shopping for pink clothes and spending hours playing Barbies. I'm looking forward to the baby dolls and the hair accessories and shows like Strawberry Shortcake.
I know that's a little shallow, but I'm a girly girl.
I love Matthew to death. I love that I've learned to find the joys in playing Transformers and watching Cars.
But, bringing some pink to this house will be a good thing.
We've started designing the nursery. And, of course I have started buying clothes. A onesie here, a sleeper there. It's fun! My sister has brought over boxes of girl things from my nieces. It's a little bit overwhelming, but I'm loving it.
The funny part of all of this, is that we are having a hard time choosing names. There are so many we like, and we want to pick the right one.
When I was pregnant with Matthew (believe it or not, that name took us forever to pick) we already knew that if we were having a girl her name wold be Jessica. But, to me that name sort of belongs to Matt, and it seems weird to consider it for this baby. It seems like a hand-me-down. I know, that's weird. But, still ...
Anyone have any great name ideas?

And, how cute is this? On Saturday night Kyla and Paige came for a visit. Paige (2) has started talking a LOT. At least, we can finally understand a lot of what she is saying now. And, every time she wants to get Matt's attention she shouts "Matt. Matty. Matt ADAMS." It cracks me up every single time I hear it.
For someone so tiny that child knows how to get our attention.

You're going to have so much fun with a girl! As for the name, I would look to your sister for advice... Kyla and Paige are both great names!

Just pick a short list of names you like, and you'll know the right one when you see her. I really like 'Lily', but Hub's cousin used that name and I didn't want to re-use it.

I so knew you were having a girl;P
I loved joining the girly world after 3 boys! So much fun! Enjoy. Let me make some suggestions.
Janie and Jack, Gymboree, Naartjie, Deux par Deux, Hanna Anderson, Oilily, um... shall I go on?
Online shopping and ebay cruising for cute clothes and shoes became my crack post girly birth

YAY - congrats to you, your hubby, & Matt!!! And don't worry - there are SO many cute girl names out there. Before we knew what we were having I spent hours looking up names online and I'm sure you've already been doing the same.
