WOAH.

Reactions are mixed over here.  Karsten told everyone I was having a boy, but doesn't seem disappointed to be having a girl.  Soren says he's waiting for the 20 week ultrasound and crossing his fingers that it's really a boy.  Anders said disgustedly that he doesn't want any barbies around the house.  And Dan and I are just 1) grateful to be having a healthy baby and 2) grateful that there is not more than one in there (hooray for another homebirth!) and 3) sort of reeling from the differentness of it all.  A girl!  We don't know how to do girls!

I guess we will be learning pretty quick here!

UPDATE: It is not a girl.  :)  Click here for more.

Wow! I hadn't realized you're expecting! Welcome to the 5 club! And congrats on a girl! She'll have all those big brothers to watch out for her. Her future dates have no chance, haha. Delighted for you!!!

Yeahhh! You will love having a girl! Your boys will adore her. Parker is so sweet with little Addy. She is always asking him for hugs and to hold her.

Hurray!!! When I told my dad that I was having my first girl and expressed my uncertainty in raising a girl, he told me that I should be excited because she would bring balance to the force :) It is true!! I was so nervous about a girl and it has been so sweet to see all these boys love a little sister (now, two sisters). Congratulations!! Although we still don't really have very many "girl" toys. Sydney mostly plays with Legos like her brothers. :)

I just completely freaked out, right here in my living room. YAY! I absolutely love the expressions on both of your faces when you found out. Dan's eyes! HA! I love this. That is one lucky girl.
