Bugs -- but not in a gross way

You know how when some people are expecting a child they don't want to know the gender of the baby until it comes? And sometimes they don't even pick out a name until they see the baby? They love the excitement and adventure of not knowing. I am not that person. I NEED to know. I have to plan things. Like...you know...THINGS.

So, I'm going to have a baby in about 8 weeks. And after 4 (Yes, FOUR) ultrasounds, the doctor still couldn't tell me the gender. This is a long and complicated story that involves many interpreters and green linoleum and dry toast ( I told you it was complicated) and ends in me getting a new doctor that told me in 2.5 seconds the gender of my next child.



We are going to have another little lady around our house!

And it seems like there is no better way to celebrate girl-ness than with scalloped cutters. (Well, that and a potential apartment fire, right?)

Okay, so as a recap, I just put BUGS on scalloped cookies to celebrate the anticipated birth of a baby girl. And I don't have to go to the hospital with the green floor anymore.

A lady bug addition...how lovely and congratulations to you and the whole family, exciting stuff. I showed my ultrasound to my cousin urologist and he said boy, boy, boy. I was the only one who knew that my own Dr. said girl. Boy was he embarrassed! No wonder my hubby won't go to him for the big V !
