We're having a GIRL!

Well, this picture is pretty clear. Two legs, a bum and dark space between those legs. Our ultrasound tec had no doubts that that we are adding a new little princess to our household! We are absolutely thrilled! I've always wanted Emma to have a sister close to her in age. I have loved growing into a best friendship with my sister Amber and I will be praying the same for my little daughters. We've already decided on a name: Chloe Paige. Travis is hoping for a boy at some point, but He knows that God's design is perfect and that he was meant to be these little girl's father. The picture after the gender picture is a 3D shot of little Chloe's face with a few fingers up by her nose. Those 3D ultrasounds are so amazing! The next one is a 3D profile of her with her little mouth open, probably swallowing some amniotic fluid. My mom and Travis both think they see my profile in her, we'll see. After having a little Travis clone, it's hard to picture us with any other combo of genes. God is amazing in the way He knits us together. Now we're just so excited to meet this little angel. The next picture is a 2D picture of Chloe's profile. The one after thatis a rather skeletal picture of her face. It's amazing how much better those 3D ultrasounds can capture what the baby looks like. These final two pictures show Chloe's little fist and thumb, the tec said it was a thumbs down to dad, "no, I'm not a boy!" and then the bottom of her little foot. Little Chloe is a picture of health according the the doctor who also checked things out. I was impressed with how thorough this exam was. We feel so blessed, that's the best way I can describe it. "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." - James 1:17. We love you all and look forward to all your latest updates as well. Thank you for letting us share our journeys and experiences with you through this blog.
