it's a...


It came as quite a shock to me! Going into the appointment I was 99% convinced it was going to be a boy. Neither one of us really cared what we have, in all honesty, but
I just had that gut feeling this was a boy. We asked the Ultrasound Tech to write the gender on a piece of paper and put it in a sealed envelope so we could open it during lunch. While she was doing her thing she panned across the "zone" and I swore I saw a definitive sign, if you know what I mean. I didn't want to ruin the surprise for Brooke so I kept my mouth shut. Now I was 100% sure it is a boy. Then the U/S tech pointed out the umbilical cord. Was that what I saw? Couldn't be. I know it is a boy. So we finish our appointment, the tech puts the photographic proof in the envelope and we head off to a few meetings and then lunch, The Cheesecake Factory. We ordered our food and then tore open the envelope. "Don't forget to look surprised when it says boy," I thought. It's a... it's a... GIRL?! Wait, what?! Check again. Even with the proof in front of me I don't believe it. My jaw drops to the floor and all of a sudden it hits me. It's a girl! That means, two tea party schedules, two boyfriend related set of issues, two weddings! Do you have any idea what weddings cost these days! But it also means two daddy's little girls, two little sweethearts, two beautiful little ladies, two little souls I am madly in love with, and a million other great things girls bring that I'm too shocked right now to think of!

I am slowly getting used to the idea of being completely outnumbered in my home. Anyone who has multiple daughters please email the meeting info for your support group. I'm going to need some help!

Jason and I are so happy for you guys! Your reactions are priceless! Dan, you looked scared to death (hahahaha)! Brooke, I am still disappointed that Samantha wasn't at our picture preview meeting (just kidding).
Congrats Again,
Jason and Nicole Werling

Congrats!!! We are also very happy for you guys!!
We love catching up with your life via the blog. I hate to tell you, I've yet to find a support group for being outnumbered in your home. If you hear of one, let me know : ) We did get a boy dog, but that failed to work!!! : )

All jokes aside, your blog says it all. Two daddy's girls, two sweethearts... You'll love every part of being parents to two little girls!!!

Keep up the posts- Best wishes in the months to come!

John, Cyndi, Kate and Elizabeth Love

Congratulations you two! It's been awhile since I've been on, so we're a little behind on your big news. We wish you all the best in your pregnancy and remember Dan, if you can't beat em'... join 'em. (I'm not sure if that sounds right on either part?)

How's the studio coming???
