It's a....!!!


I gave it away in my "best weekend ever" post, but if you weren't paying attention, you might have missed it!  We found out last Saturday at our 3D/4D ultrasound that our tech who performed our NT scan was in fact correct.  It is a blessing all the way around, but especially because World War III was about to go down over a girls name.  When we first found out we were pregnant, Frank ever so kindly told me that I could name her if she was a girl and we could pick a name together if it was a boy.  Well his kind gesture went out the window quite quickly when I told him I was going to name her Piper if she was a girl.  From that argument forward I decided that I my longing for hair bows, dresses and fingernail polish needed to go out the window and I needed to start praying a boy.  If we winded up with a girl, her name probably would have been terrible.  This is, once again, a blessing all the way around.  We both LOVE the name we've picked for our little man and can't wait to share it when he arrives.  

With (already!) being in my 18th week on Monday, I feel like I really need to delve into some research to figure out what I'm going to do about certain things.  I asked in a post awhile back about what products parents liked best and I'm definitely going to use that information, but besides that, I'm going to do things my way with little input from anyone.  I'm going to learn my baby and trust my motherly instincts.  You guys know all about my crazy future MIL, so you can imagine the input that she has had and quite frankly, I'm already tired of hearing it. I will always want to hear other parents experiences but I don't want to deal with the pressure associated with people telling me what to do and how to parent.  I will share the decisions we make, but I won't push them on you!

And what's a post without pictures?
