Merry Christmas - It's A GIRL!

We are so excited to announce that Derin and I are expecting our little girl by the end of April! Honestly we were in shock when the doctor told us our new baby was a girl. Michael was just pointing at the screen saying "baby". I am so glad that we will have a daughter and cannot wait to see what kind of big brother Michael will be to a little girl.

While we knew our baby was a girl on the 23rd, we waited until today, Christmas to tell everyone. Derin raised his glass for a toast and announced that our ultrasound was fabulous and our baby was healthy. Everyone was silent hoping for more so Derin said that my dad would read about the birth of Jesus from the gospel of Luke. After my dad finished his reading, he said but if they had a second child it would have been....and I shouted GIRL! Everyone screamed, I cried again and my dad brought in this pink balloon. We are so thrilled that God has blessed us with our son Michael and cannot wait to meet our little girl, whenever she arrives. Now the hard part...what will we name her?
