It's a girl!

This day could not have taken any longer to arrive. I made the appointment with my high risk specialist over 6 weeks ago. I knew then that it would take a while. They made my appointment for 10:15am however when I arrived they informed me that my appointment was actually 11am. We arrived at 10:05. Oh the torture! Finally at 11:30ish they called my name. So back went me, Joe and our little boys. The boys were so excited. They nurse began the normal routine for my ultrasound. She of course started at the head first and made her way down. She even skipped over the "special" area and went straight to the feet. FINALLY, she said ok, looks like you're having a GIRL! I couldn't believe it. Now, we were told around this same time when I was pregnant with the boys that one was a boy and one was a girl. I asked my nurse if she was pretty certain because I would hate to go out and register for things when it was actually another boy. She confirmed it again. The doctor came in and he also confirmed it. We have decided to name our sweet little girl after Joe's grandmother, Maggie. One because we love the name but mostly because Granny was such an amazing woman. Right after we had the boys she would call me almost everyday with almost the exact conversation...Granny would say..."I always wanted twins. I used to dress Larry (Joe's dad) and Billy (Joe's uncle) up like they were twins." She would call to see if I needed anything and just to see how we were all doing. She became pretty sick so the phone calls were few and far between but we were able to spend one weekend out of the month with her. Joe's parents took turns with the other brother's and sister's letting Granny come to their house to keep a better eye on her. She had this rolling walker that had a seat on it and she would let the boys sit on that seat while she pushed it. It's so comforting when the boys tell us they remember that. Sadly, Granny passed away on December 13, 2006. So in honor and memory of her we wanted to name our little girl Maggie. So our daughter's name will be Maggie Grace Wilburn.
