The Money Shot by JILL

Matt & I have spent the last 2 weekends revealing to our families WE ARE EXPECTING A GIRL! From the poll, everyone thought boy. Matt's family thought boy too, since "everyone" has a boy first - they described Matt as "the rebel" for breaking tradition. One cousin, Alexis, cheered Matt for "breaking the curse." Either way, our families are most excited just to have the little one on the way.

I'm 21wks tomorrow. She was moving all over the place in the ultrasound we saw 3wks ago. Since then I've finally started to feel our little girl squirming a bit. She usually kicks right under my belly button. It'll be nice when Matt can feel it too, but that should be in another week or so.

Now the most popular question is, "Do you have any names picked out?" We are quick to respond NO. We have still another 4 months to make that very important decision! Please be patient with us.

To understand the picture, think as if we sat the baby on a copy machine. Her booty is on the left, with her legs sticking out to the right. The highlighted line on the bottom leg is her thigh bone. The blurry portion between the legs/knees was her hand, she was moving it when the picture was taken.

Congrats! Little girls are so special. I wanted to have a girl, and got, first, much to Wil's overprotective fatherly anxiety. We changed our minds on the baby's name virtually everyday until I saw her face. You'll know when you see her.

Hey there I just wanted to let you know that I am happy for the two of you. I congradulated Matt on breaking the tradition. Having a boy first was not a curse it is just how it happened. But I am so happy that someone could break the tradition. I do not mean this in a hateful way at all hope you do not take it that way. I just know that one of the grandkids had to break the tradition. MawMaw would be so proud of you too. Hope you understand Love you both Connie

I still don't see it but I'm happy I got to see you guys! Have I mentioned how much I love your blog?!?!

It's not so much what you see...but what you don't see (which means it's a girl). If baby was a boy, you would see a little penis outline in "the valley" of the legs.

I hope this is the last 'booty' shot of our grand daughter that you will post! You didn't say anything about the cowgirl hat and boots that she has waiting in Tampa. I need to take that photo of the two hats with my digital so you can post it. It's so cute! LU
