the acorn is a....

People have been asking and asking, Do you have a feeling? Do you know what you're having?

No, we'd say. I don't know...maybe a boy? Since we have two of them? I don't know?





That's why I bought the green oh-so-neutral guggy (our family's word for a blankie) for the new baby.




Then today we had our ultrasound,


and when we got our peek...






It felt blurry and surreal, just like that picture...


a little peek of PINK???






WOW.

We're so happy and excited and totally and completely surprised.
(The expression on my face in that last picture about sums up my current state of shock.)
(It's a very very good kind of shock.)


WOW.

There are just so many things you can't know for sure until you know for sure. Now we know for sure, and even though this is all kinds of new to us, it is so good.


THE ACORN IS A GIRL!!!

IT'S A GIRL!!!



(excuse me while I go stare off into space now, smiling.)

Sarah@Life in the Parsonage said...

YAY! I'm so happy for you! I stared off in space for months after we found out Lucy was a girl ;)

Your boys will be such sweet big brothers.

Jami said...

Lee Arthur said...

congrat's on the pink.

MommyJ said...

I love my boys. I love, love, love my boys. But. There is something extraordinarily special about having a daughter. It isn't better or worse. One can't categorize their children in such a way. But it's different and unique and just special.

I'm so thrilled for you.

Tooje said...

As I well know...2 of one does NOT equal 3 of one. Nor does 3 of one equal 4 of one. LOL My poor husband thought he had no chance of pink, and here he is....

I cannot WAIT to see your bundle of pink. Ah. So exciting!!!

Alissa said...

Hurray!!! Dresses and frills and pink! What do the boys think?

Crooked Eyebrow said...

woot! woot! That is the best news all day.
Many congrats and she will have some pretty amazing brothers to look after her.

Lara said...

So happy for you! (To clarify: I'd be happy if it were a boy, as I'm sure you would be, too!) Girls are definitely lots and lots of fun! Yay for pink!

Pamela said...

girls are awesome because no matter how hard they try, they will never be able to pee in your mouth.
congrats!!!

trishatfox said...

You will LOVE having a daughter. The boys will love having a sister. I am so happy for you all.

Kim said...

I KNEW IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SQUEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, I will have to start sewing for her and will be going through my girl clothes sending you lots!!!!

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aidan Donnelley Rowley @ Ivy League Insecurities said...

Yay!!!!!! You know how I feel about little girls. Yay!!!!!! Acorn and my wee one can be cyber-friends. Deal?? Yay!!!!

Adventures In Babywearing said...

I KNEW IT!!! I JUST KNEW IT!!!

And, so, you know that I know just how you are feeling. There should be a club for "all boys then a girl" because I really don't know what else to say about it other than you just KNOW.

Heather, you gotta call me tomorrow, ok?

Or right now. I'm not doing anything.

Steph

Missy@Wonder, Friend said...

Congratulations! What shiny, happy, pink-y news.

So nice meeting you and hearing you speak last week at Blissdom. :)

Allison @ Alli 'n Son said...

Yea! I'm so excited for you. To have the experience of raising boys and girls is awesome. That's exactly why I'm considering three, hoping for a girl the third time around. Of course the second isn't even born yet so I may just change my mind in 6 months.

Alita said...

How exciting! Boys are such a barrel of laughs and energy, but then a girl... ahhh a girl...

I really have no idea since I'm just raising two wild & crazy bambinos. Ha!

Congratulations chica! I'm so very excited for your wee family + girl acorn in the oven. :)

Mammatalk said...

Welcome to the world of pink!! It's a glorious place to be. I am so tickled pink for you. (sorry for the pun!) Much luck, love and blessings sent your way! :+)

Hyacynth said...

I'd be happy for you for either, but I'm so glad you'll get to experience the mother-daughter relationship. How wonderful is that!

heather of the eo said...

Thank you, friends.

OH MY. Thank you so much.

deb colarossi said...

Heather!!!!!!!

Kazzy said...

I am just sitting here with a big ole smile on my face. Yay!!!!

Ash said...

Happy happy, joy joy!!

So glad all is well. And pink. Though between you and Elaine, I'm feeling somewhat abandoned on the blue side of the kids clothes department ;)

Pink!!

Amy @ Never-True Tales said...

How exciting! You'll have to edit your blog header to include a GIRL with your boys!

Robin said...

so, so, so excited for you!!!

For the Love of Naps - Sarah said...

I have two boys and I just gave birth to my third....a surprise...and we were blessed with a girl. EEEK! So excited for you. Now you have some time to let it settle. I haven' thad that time yet and still find it unbelievable that we made a girl! Bring on the tights, bows, and barbies! Who am I kidding...this little girl is going to be building legos by the time she is 1!

Jen said...

Woohoo! I am so happy for you!

Blessings Heather!

BARBIE said...

Congratulations! That's so exciting!

LisAway said...

Wooohoooo! What a lucky mama! And what a lucky little girl to come into a family with two big brothers to teach and protect her. Yay!!

Jamie said...

This post covered me in goosebumps, and I have tears in my eyes! I am so happy for you! Bailey was the first girl on my husband's side of the family in 39 years so I thought it wasn't possible for us to "make a girl" :) HA HA! So when the tech said, "Nope. It's a girl." I was in shock and happy and crying. I said "We're having a girl!" to anyone who gave me eye contact for a week!! I am so so so so happy for you and all that you must be feeling right now!!!!

K and/or K said...

A little sister for the boys…how sweet!!!!
Congratulations!

KLZ said...

That's awesome! So glad you're thrilled!!

Nicki said...

Woo hoo! Congratulations!! And she will have big brothers to look after her.

AMomTwoBoys said...

A GIRL? One of those things that comes with a vagina?!

Congratulations! How exciting!!!!

Jessica {Team Rasler} said...

Congratulations! What a lucky little girl she is to be coming into your family. Have a blast scooping up lots of fun new clothes!

TKW said...

I knew it! Congrats! I'm so excited for you! xo

BaronessBlack said...

Yay! So excited for you!

Y'know she's going to have her big brothers wrapped around her finger in NO time!

And probably you and Ryan, too!

gretchen from lifenut said...

Congratulations! Prepare for the pinkalanche.

Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting said...

YYAAAAYYYY A GIRL!!!!!

Craig said...

Pink baby, white thread, a prayer for you and your hubs and all your little ones - including the acorn.

God bless.

OHmommy said...

CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!


Yay. Yay. Yay. And two older brothers to protect her. Just perfect!

Cathy said...

Congrats! I have three boys and I know if the third's ultrasound indicated a girl, I'd be in disbelief and probably stick with the yellows, greens, and beige to be safe. Seriously though, my best friend had a girl after two boys so it does happen. (I am still in disbelief though.)

sara sophia said...

If I could actually turn a backflip I would.


YAYYYYAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!


Am now off to order the peep a sugar covered outfit. With a bow.

LOVE YOU SO MUCH,
S.S.

Sarah@EmergingMummy said...

YAHOO!!!! You were killing me yesterday! I kept checking and checking and checking. (Stalker, what?) Congrats on the little girl. Bless!

Sober Julie said...

I've just stumbled upon your blog here and congrats are in order!!!

My Bottle's Up! said...

CRYING with joy for you!!!

Traci said...

Congratulations, Heather. That is awesome! Enjoy buying pink!! Hope you are well.

Corinne said...

A certain little birdie texted me yesterday with your incredibly good news! Yay!! :) So happy for you guys. Your boys will love having a baby sister, and she will be so lucky to have them!

Carrie said...

Yay!!! I have a boy first, then a girl, and of course I adore my son, but I just LOVE having a girl - you will love being able to dress her all girly - so fun!!!! Congratulations!!! :)

Jenn said...

Yeah! I'm so excited for you!!!!

Simply Created by Cole said...

So happy for you!!! Congratulations!!!

YAY!

Have a great week.

Anti-Supermom said...

Two boys and a girl, I'm not going to say that it's perfect or anything

(but it *is*, it's so completely, awesomely perfect!)

Excited for you... and that I can comment again! I had given up.

From me, the mom of 2 big boys and the little girl ;)

SUEB0B said...

Yay! Girls are great! I mean, so are boys, but it will be fun to have a girlie!

From Tracie said...

Awwww YAY!!

Girls are a special kind of special (so are boys, but you already know all about them)

Kimberly said...

As you know I have three of them and oh my, sweet Heather you are in for a treat! Boys and girls are each their own kind of fabulous and I'm so glad for you that you get to experience both!

Lolli said...

Congratulations!! I had two girls before having my first son, and I was terrified to have something different from what I already knew. :)

Melissa said...

oh hooray - congratulations!! yay! happy day :)

Erin said...

We went through this exact thing exactly a year ago. Two boys, and then finding out we were pregnant with a girl.

And what a delight she is. You are going to love every minute!

Amie said...

Congrats! And green is still a grounding color for anyone. And... it goes great with purple!

keli [at] kidnapped by suburbia said...

a girl!!! A GIRL!!! fun fun fun!! congrats!

Christine said...

WAY late to this...cause that is how I roll these days. And it seems I am literally number 100 to come and express my excitement for you! That rocks.

SO SO SO SO SO excited for you.

xo

P.S. I haven't forgotten that I owe you a present. It's coming I PROMISE. I'm just really bad with actually mailing things. You know, the old fashioned way.

Meagan @ The Happiest Mom said...

I'm late, too, but OMG YA YA YA YAAYYY!

As the mom of four boys and one girl--the last--I totally understand that unreal, "holy cow is this happening?" feeling. When I had my ultrasound for #5, my one daughter, I actually thought something along the lines of "Is that his penis? It looks kind of messed up" before the tech finally told me that, actually, she was a girl.

And then I sat there dumbfounded. But so excited. So, so excited. I love my boys, love them dearly, and would be totally happy with a house full of them. But there is something so special about this mother-daughter thing. I'm so happy for you!

Casey Freeland said...

You sure don't need me to add to this list of commenters, but I wanted to say congratulations! Wonderful news. Love the girls. Boys too, but love the girls.

Casey
