It's a girl!

So, the official report is in. LittleBear Cable now has a pronoun all of her own. No more of this s/he his/her stuff. Our Little Bear is a little girl!

Jim is through the roof, of course. He's already talking about having Daddy's little girl and being wrapped around her tiny finger.

We went in for our 19 week ultra sound this morning for a 9:30 appointment. At 10 am we were called in by the tech and we were ready to go. This was a Level II u/s in which they view and analyze the baby's internal organs to make sure all is as it should be. This procedure would take about 45 minutes, or so the tech told us. However, it quickly became obvious that that was not to be the case. Our LittleBear is quite the energetic little thing. She was doing cartwheels and bouncing all over the place making it hard for the tech to get good photos and images. Looks like we've got a little athlete or dancer on our hands... not all that surprising when you recall that she first made her presence known to her daddy in mid soccer game! True to her mother's nature LittleBear was being quite uncooperative with the tech and 3 hours later we were still bending me in all directions to get a good look at her heart. I'm convinced that she was just anxious to know the score of the Italy v. Czech Republic match. Forza Azzurri!

Today is a good day. Italy qualified for the round of 16 and we have a little girl!

I am really emotional right now. I didn't expect to hear until July. She is going to wrap everyone around her finger and I should know because I am already there!
I can't wait to see you all tomorrow.
I wonder if she is going to be the hellcat her mother was??
Love Donna

Congrats. BTW - you can insist all you want that girl != pink. People will still give you pink dresses with "Little Princess" written on them.
