the results are in. . .

whew, today has been an amazing day. we just got back from a family dinner where we announced to both sides who will be joining us in late august, and guess what!?. . .

it's another sweet baby GIRL!!!!!

we found out this afternoon around 2:30pm, and while on the drive to our doctor's appointment, i looked over at jay and told him that if we heard carrie underwood's "all-american girl" (i love that song) on the radio that it was a sign that we were going to have a girl. . .sure enough the next song that played was that one, and i just knew! i think it's funny how god gives us those little signs. the majority of the fam wanted another sweet girl so we like to think we delivered just for them. jay said that he is definitely going to be outnumbered now, and that he needs to seriously start saving up for those 2 weddings in the future. haha, poor boy. us, women, are going to run this house. . .he doesn't stand a chance! =P

we are both very excited, and can't wait to meet her. we're naming her "Lyla Scarlett," and the sisters will be 2 years and a month apart. baby lyla is doing great. she weighs 11 oz. and her heart rate was a strong 150. i can already feel her moving around in my belly, and i just love it!

okay, so i have rambled enough. . .now it's time to put all this energy into finishing laundry and packing for our babymoon #2 to the beach. it's a much needed vacation, and we can't wait to share it with our girls. this may be our last vaca before she gets here so please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as our crazy ride through parenthood continues. two kids should be VERY interesting to say the least!!
