Change in Plans

The initial plan of keeping the sex of the baby a surprise was kiboshed in the last 24-hours.
We gave in. We threw in the towel. We decided to find out!

We had the sonographer write it down inside a card and let us keep the secret from ourselves until dinner. Yes, I fully understand we have to complicate things and switch up the typical scenario. We're like that. They're obviously prepared for this request because they have the most adorable little cards and envelopes where they can write your good news.

I think once we got back in the car after the sonogram and the regular doctor's appointment Clint was on 6 different phone calls. I sat there and stared out the window wondering WHAT ARE WE GOING TO HAVE?

We had dinner at Eddie V's and opened the card inside the bar. I won't sell-out Clint completely, but will say he was a sappy, sappy mess. He read the card and it was the sweetest thing.

Pretty sure Eddie V's sealed the deal when they brought out this decadent Bananas Foster Cake alongside Butter Pecan Ice Cream with "It's a Girl" written in chocolate. I think that might be my go-to dessert from now until eternity!

Saving the most important information for last, Baby E (aka Jules) is healthy! 10 fingers, 10 toes, 2 kidneys, 4 chambers of the heart. It's all lookin good and we couldn't be more thankful!
Thank you for continuing on this crazy journey of ours.
