drumroll please..........

We have news, big news.  Today we went to get our ultrasound and we can now start calling baby #3...........









A GIRL!!!!!



We were a little shocked (ok, I was a lot shocked...).  My instincts (er, perhaps hopes) were for a boy, I was even crafting baby things in boys colors.  Now I have a lot of baby boy presents to give away!  Jason is dealing with the news pretty well, especially once we told him that he would get his own room from now on and we'd have the girls share!  So now we have to come up with a name, this is where it gets interesting.  I don't know if so much time is a good thing for us, usually we decide on a name during the drive to the hospital!  If you have any suggestions (not jokes or snide remarks) please feel free to leave a comment.  Cameron can't understand why we aren't naming this girl Cameron also, so coming up with a name will be very helpful for her.  And by the way, we do have a few pictures but the tech couldn't get a cute profile shot of the baby's face, she was being very shy and covering her face with her hands.  He dug around my belly, trying to prod her out of hiding (and bugging me at the same time...) but she wouldn't budge.  When he went to get a shot of the male/female area he said there was no mistaking this one.  He paused there to get a picture and typed "Girl" on the screen.  Sorry gang, but I refuse to post THAT shot of my daughter on the internet, I'm trying to raise modest young ladies!  We have a DVD of the entire ultrasound experience.  Alright, time to start crafting in girl colors......

okay - here's a partial list. I like (in no particular order): Emma, Liesel (from Sound of Music), Taylor, Hannah, and I did like Riley until I found out that was the name of the new character to replace Sara on CSI. Im sure I will come up with more.

Love, Mom

congratulations!

Personally, my favorite girl name is Josephine... "Josie" for short.

Kira is nice...

A Girl! I was thinking boy all the way... I have no votes for names... because nothing serious is coming to mind... although Cameron 2 would be easy to remember...

Congratulations!!! Here are my suggestions for girl's names:
Shannon, Natalie, Nicole and Erin.
(I just noticed Shannon ends the same as Jason and Cameron!)
