Baby on Board

I've been waiting along time to make this announcement on our blog. I challenged myself to wait until we knew the sex of the baby before saying anything, but I accidentally scooped my own story on facebook. (I really shouldn't be unleashed on that thing.)

Any way...the Hughes family gets to welcome a baby girl on October 14th, give or take. (Emphasis on the take part.) I truly thought we were having a boy based on an earlier ultrasound, so I'll have to get use to calling this baby "she" and "her."

3 of the 4 of us are very excited. When we told Avery she was having a baby sister, she started celebrating and hasn't stopped since. Just mention the word "sister" and the party starts all over again. Sage just likes a reason to jump up and down with his sister while shouting, I'll take anything since we've already have our boy and our girl, and Shane's well... girls seem to scare him a little. His mind flashes forward to teenage years and premature incessant worrying starts to kick in. After the ultrasound he started mumbling things about stupid hormonal teenage boys. Having a girl as his oldest hasn't seemed to change anything. We'll just give it time to sink in a little.

Also, we do have a name picked out, but that will have to wait till she's born before being announced.

So exciting! Nothing sweeter than a little baby girl. Good job waiting so long! It's hard! :) We don't do names until their born either-- can't wait to see what you choose!

Congratulations!! Tanner is afraid of girls too. I guess Daddy's know what is REALLY going on in teenage boys' heads.

We are having our 2nd girl next week and I was so sure I was having a boy that I washed all of our baby boy clothes that I had saved...then the ultrasound said girl. It took me a while to get used to it.

AND I agree with the name thing. We had a name picked out for this baby and told everyone. But now I'm pretty sure we are changing it...oh well.

Wonderful news! Good job evening out the boy/girl ratio in the Hughes grandkids. Too bad you're not having twins, we'd happily take one.
