Another Family MILESTONE!

Today we went to the doctor's office to find out the sex of our baby! Im excited to say that its going to be..........A GIRL!!!!!! Our baby girl! I can't believe its been a crazy 5 months wondering and wondering what kind of "gender neutral" stuff to get for the baby room and clothing, etc. But the wait is over... it was a 50/50 shot and honestly, as long as its a healthy 10 finger 10 toed kid, we could care less! The wife and I celebrated afterward with going to a wonderful lunch at a neighborhood restaurant and calling both our parents. Today has been a mixture of joy, excitement, and just a little nerve racking. Even though its our first steps towards parenthood, its still a very very new experience for us. (Its mostly excitement, though :) YEAH!!!!
