Being Brickner : It's A ...

It's A ...

GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It's official, Waverly Maye is getting a baby SISTER & we are over the moon excited!  Based on the heartbeat at my last routine appointment, my doctor predicted it was a girl & then later last week, the ultrasound confirmed the news.  Even still, I am in (the best kind of) shock.  From day one I was convinced this babe was a boy, which makes me the worst "gender predictor" ever, since I also thought Waverly was, too.  We would have been more than thrilled either way, but the reality that this little person in my belly is a girl just makes my heart SO very full.

I am looking forward to so many things about having two little ladies, but more than anything, am beyond excited that Waverly gets to experience how special having a sister is.  My own sister & I are so close, it's really the best relationship.  Nothing makes me happier than the fact that my girls will have each other for life!!!!


Waverly is so excited, she got to see little sister on the big screen during the ultrasound & then on the way home, kept saying "my SISTER!" while smiling as big as I have ever seen her.  As for my husband, who is as manly & "all guy" as they come, he is thrilled!  He has rocked it as a girl dad to Waverly Maye for the past two years & I know nothing will change when it comes to our next daughter.  Plus, he was quick to point out how much money we will be saving since we do have some girl clothes I am sure big sister will be willing to pass down. ;)

Let the fun begin, can't wait to share some nursery (& matching!) ideas soon!!!!

    I (not so secretly) want another girl, too. Not that I wouldn't love to have a little boy, it's the sister thing. My sister and I are also really close and I really want Scarlett to have that :) How special that Waverly is going to have a sister so close in age!!! xoxo

  19. So, so happy for you, sweet friend! Of course, you already know this, but I had to stop by and say so again on the blog after seeing the announcement! You, the hubby and Waverly will ROCK the whole 2 girls things. Oh, how fun! It is definitely the season for baby girls and I couldn't be more thrilled:) It's awesome that baby #2 will get to make use of some of Waverly's amazing wardrobe. We would have loved another boy to pass down Caleb's clothes, but like I said, it seems that this spring is the spring of baby girls. Yayyyy!
