Thanks for all the congrats, guys. I initially wanted to wait until the birth to find out the gender but knowing right now and being able to plan and call baby by name is so much fun.
Up until the ultrasound Brooklyn had been really hoping for a girl and Sierra wanted a boy so that “Payson could get a brother,” awwww. But when finding out it was a sister she was thrilled.
And Brooklyn, Brooklyn could barely contain her excitement. The only thing that got her mind off it was the lollipop she got. ha
Payson is oblivious to the fact that there is a baby coming. I don’t know if he’ll even grasp the idea before she’s born! What a shock it’ll be to him in October!
I did keep the tags on all of those clothes and the receipts were tucked away safely in my purse. I just couldn’t pass up the sales!! We had only three baby girl outfits so we were (are) definitely needing to build up a wardrobe. (Fun!)
We do have some girl names picked out. We’ve been calling the baby Ember for quite some time but I’m not entirely sure we’ll use it!
My current favorite names are:
Anya (this one is in the top two right now)
Adelaide (my favorite but not Allan’s)
Jeena (after my sister)
Some others I like but we probably won’t use:
Briana (Allan’s favorite, but I don’t like it because it’s similar sounding to Ariana)
But more than likely it’ll be Ember Anya. That’s what she’s been called for four months 😉
