Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice

We're having a little girl! Sorry to those who wanted me to keep the news a surprise, but really, I'm way to excited and know I would blurt it out sooner or later anyway. Even though I'd be just as excited if we were having a little boy, I can now plan pretty little clothes, pretty little toys and future tea parties.

The toy in the photo is the one I bought the day I got the news. I thought I'd use it to break the news to DH as he couldn't attend the scan that day. Funnily enough, he didn't get the pink hint, so I had to tell him directly. He's very excited, but has made it clear that she will still be learning martial arts ("She'll know how to throw a good punch by the age of three") and he'll still play with trucks with her. All good by me! I know that our little girl is going to have her daddy wrapped around her little finger.

And, finally a normal belly shot. I'm rather camera shy so there are few photos of my belly growth. This is me today, at 30 weeks.



I can't believe it's only about ten weeks before I get to meet my little girl.

CurlyPops said...

Yah! Congratulations! I was saying that little rhyme in my head when I read your post title (couldn't quite remember straight off the top of my head whether little boys or little girls were made of sugar and spice).

Congratulations! I live with a little girl who would prefer a truck/car/toy with wheels over dolls. Her toys and play might lead you to believe she is a 100% bona fide tomboy... Not quite, she only wears pink and prefers twirly skirts and dresses to pants. :D

Fantastic News (of course I would have said the same for a boy!)
It is a gorgeous pic of your belly and the toy. And you are totally glowing. Thanks for sharing your excitement and joy!

I knew you wouldn't be able to keep it a secret. You look lovely, no need to be camera shy. Gosh it seems like a blink ago that I was eagerly awaiting the arival of my little girl- a non dress wearer unfortunately but dear non the less. Enjoy every minute of the delightful ride...it goes quickly.
