So it's official, Joel and I are going to have a baby girl! We found out on Friday at our detailed ultrasound at the hospital. The ultra sound tech also assured us that everything looks great and she is healthy. I wasn't able to see this ultrasound, but I was told she kept opening her eyes and mouth. Our doctor will go over the ultrasound results with us at our regular doctor's office on Friday... and I will actually get to see her on the screen at that appointment.
After our fun news, we went up to the Observatory at Griffith Park nearby and looked out over the city and dramatic orange sunset. What an incredibly peaceful view. There was a perfectly warm breeze and we could hear coyotes in the Hollywood Hills. It was so clear that you could see all the way out to the ocean, and all the lights of LA looked like a galaxy of stars. It all felt surreal and we just reflected together a bit and thanked the Lord for our baby girl.
We are not declaring any names at this point, but we have a pretty strong contender. My dear options husband, of course wants to consider the options longer. I just love him:) We probably won't have the official announcement of her name until she is born.
