The word is..

As most of you know right now, we are having another baby girl!  BellaRose will have a sister.  I don't think that this is bad to say, but both Worth and I had hoped for a boy, but I was thinking the whole time it was probably going to be a girl.  I was right.  But I have to tell you that I LOVE MY SISTERS!!!  I love them with my whole heart.  It took us awhile to get as close as we are b/c they are so much older then me (but you can't tell), but now that we are older we are so close.  There is nothing like the bond that sisters share and so with that I am thrilled that BellaRose will have a sister!  I pray that they will be best of friends and watch out for each other and survive me going through menopause together (this last statement reflects nothing on current mothers of such age)!  
The MOST important thing though is that SHE is healthy!  The heart looks great, the spine looks great, the kidney looks great, no cleft palette.  Health was our biggest prayer and it has been answered!  We have no names yet.  I have some thoughts.  One in particular I am trying to sell Worth on.  We will see.  At least I don't have to change the nursery......much!
Here are some cute pictures of sweet girl.  It seems like we got a lot of good ultra sound pictures of her today.  
Thank you for all your love and support!  Your excitement over this little girl has made us so excited.  We have loved talking to you!

A GIRL! yeah! I can understand wanting a boy also.. but you are right, sisters have some great bonds and it's sweet that BR will have a sister! plus you have lots of cute clothes etc that you can pass down, and then the girls when they get older will share not only toys.. but clothes, makeup and possibly boys! ha! I'm very excited for you both! And a healthy baby is always a blessing! I am super excited for you and Worth! This just means you have to try again for a boy!?! = )

I love that little nose, too!! She is going to be so cute! And already sucking her thumb, good girl! I know what you mean, I hope Julia gets to experience how sweet it is to have a sister. They are such a blessing. And I'm happy for BellaRose, too. She is going to have so much fun with her little sister.
We love this new baby already!!

I have tears of joy at the awesome news that baby girls is healthy and her profile is beautiful! And Buxton is thrilled that he will have a Grant girl to chase (in case BRosey doesn't go for younger men). Congrats to you both. I wish I could hug you right now. XOXO
