It's A......................................................

I prayed for this child and the Lord has given me what I asked of him. 1 Samuel 1:27

Today has been just one of the best days ever. I can't quit smiling. Scott and I met my parents at my doctor's office this afternoon. Mom greeted us with two bags - one for either sex.
Luckily (because I had a very full bladder) - we got in quickly and the ultrasound tech was so great! I was so nervous to know if the baby was okay - and it is PERFECT! We all cried as we watched the precious baby on the screen and saw the heart and the spine and the brain and the feet and hands.
This is a picture of me and my WONDERFUL doctor - I ADORE her! I look terrible because at this point I had cried all of my make-up off.
This is our beautiful, beautiful baby! Although in the top picture - we think it looks like a one eyed pirate. ha!
After our appointment - we went to eat at P.F. Changs with my parents to celebrate.

Oh - are you wondering what this precious baby is????

It's a .....................




GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I screamed and bawled when she told us. I have wanted a girl so badly. I would have been THRILLED with a boy but my heart just longed for a daughter. And deep down - I have known it was a girl all along.

Harper Brown will join our family in 5 short months and I could not be more excited about anything in the entire world!

Praise the Lord - Great things HE has done!!!!!

You both looked so excited during the ultrasound. Oh, you have so much to look forward to. Being a Mommy is the greatest blessing in the world. The days just continue to get sweeter and sweeter.

Jen said...

Welcome to the girl club! I just had my little Caroline 2 weeks ago today, and I can't tell you how excited I was when I found out I was having a daughter! My husband tried to act macho about it, and make jokes about hoping for a boy, but he is the best daddy a little girl could ask for!

You are going to be a GREAT mommy!

Elizabeth said...

Congrats!! I have been reading your blog and was anxious to hear. You are going to have so much fun buying pink everything!!

Scrapper Mom said...

Such awesome news. I know you are ecstatic!! Go read my post from Sunday (the night before school) to see what you have to look forward to!! HA.

I love how you posted those pictures and included all of your bloggy friends!!

What a great journey.

SAS said...

Yeah!!!! How exciting!!! I am so excited for you and Scott! :) Harper Brown will be one lucky girl!

Stephanie said...

Congrats Kelly! I have to say that I truly thought it was a boy.....which means it is DEFINITELY a girl. I always choose the sex of an unborn baby wrong. It's a gift....ha!!! I could have sworn that my daughter was a son!!! : )

Having a daughter is a wonderful blessing........words just can't describe it.

Congratulations again!

Mandi said...

Praise God for tiny, precious, adorable Harper Brown!

I love these verses. Psalms 139:13-14 says, "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."

So excited for you and Scott!

I have looked at your blog a million times today waiting for this announcement. How on earth did 61 people comment before me???? I am thrilled for you.

Congratulations to you Scott and sweet Harper.

Tam said...

Hi Kelly! Congrats!! I've been reading your blog for a while now, even though I don't have one of my own and I remember dreaming last night that I was back in school and I was a cheerleader (which I actually was) so I woke up knowing somehow it was going to be a girl. You've been in my prayers and I've been enjoying your story so far because I'm 34 and not a mommy yet and I've been just in awe of how things just happen when HE knows you can handle it, and I guess I'm just not ready yet?! Someday though right?? Anyway have fun because the time will just fly by and little Harper will be here before you know it !! Take care-Tam from Ohio

Lynette said...

Congratulations. I read your blog a few times months ago after I got the link from another blog. I so understood your infertility battle as we struggled with infertility for four years before getting pregnant with the aid of clomid. We were lucky to conceive two babies with clomid after they told us we would never have children. We tried it again several times to no avail. Lo and behold this June I found out I was pregnant with our third baby. Totally natural and totally a suprise. We have been married 13 years and never done anything to prevent pregnancy. We never expected this. Anyway, I ran across your blog again a few days ago and was so happy to see that you are pregnant. What a blessing. We also found out today that we are having a girl. We already have two and I am so excited for this third little princess. Our baby will be Olivia Katherine. I love the name you have chosen. Wow, this is long. Sorry!

Amie said...

I love that God keeps pouring out the blessings on this journey...just think, this is only the beginning of a lifetime with your precious little girl! We love you! Please pass my congratulations on to Scott as well, is there anything sweeter than a daddy and his daughter?? Happy pink shopping!!!

Wow, ok so 1st, CONGRATS! and 2nd, a dear friend of mine told me to read your blog b/c my husband and I (which we live in Magnolia, AR and my husband also played football for Magnolia in high school and graduate in '97) have been trying for our 1st baby for 10 1/2 months now and have been prescribed Clomid, Josh has taken "the tests" and found out HE'S TOTALLY FINE (PRAISE GOD) and so this is our first month trying w/ the fertility drug and my heart is so full of anxiety and uncertainty. My friend recommended i read your blog and follow it for encouragement and upliftment and girl, PRAISE BE TO GOD for your wonderful blessing. Please keep us in your prayers. God Bless you and CONGRATS ON UR BABY GIRL!! :)
