It's a.....girl?!

Yeah for Lisa and Jeff! They welcomed a healthy baby girl yesterday named Emma after Lisa's Great-Grandmother. Who is now a Great-Great-Grandmother, how many of those do you know??

I got the call from Jeff this morning and he had that totally excited new-dad sound in his voice. I believe he said she was 7 lbs - 2 oz and the labor went fast (according to Jeff, maybe Lisa feels a little differently!) And since she is their daughter, I can only assume she is absolutely beautiful and I hope to see a pic soon and get more details.

They didn't know the gender. Everyone was convinced it was a boy though. And once again I must point out my initial gut feeling for her was a girl right from the start and her first trimester. Then everyone was saying boy and there were some similarities with our pregnancies so I started to doubt my gut and waffled to a boy. That's what I get for following the crowd.

I'm pretty impressed with my gut, it knew I was pregnant, having a boy, knew when Lisa was pregnant even though she really doubted it, knew she was having a girl AND although you probably won't believe me, I guessed J's weight even though I said it wrong :) I said he'd be 8 lbs - 11 oz BUT that was because I thought there were only 12 ounces in a pound! Who needs education! I said he'd be 1 ounce under 9 lbs and if I had half a brain I would have guessed correctly and said 8 lbs - 15 oz. Oh well, I may have a good gut but a dumb brain.

I guess that's why Oprah had a whole show on going with your gut. Good gut is a good thing.

Yay for new healthy baby girls. Congratulations to Lisa and Jeff.

K tell me what you think I'm having LOL. I have no idea what to think. I knew boy with Gavin, but no feeling either way with this one.

Auntie Cara was right all along -- I can confirm her initial guess! :o) And my gut could not have been more wrong. Why did I ignore all the girl dreams and somehow think I knew better??

Even so, I have to say that I am so glad I was wrong... it was so much fun being surprised! :o)

Thanks everyone for the Congrats. We are having a blast with our precious little girl!

Jeff, Lisa and Emma
