a good old fashioned gender reveal

Back in the blogging day I would have annoyingly documented every single milestone of pregnancy, (seriously, check the archives, it's absurd. Or don't because it's mildly embarrassing) and while I am definitely happy that's not my blogging trend anymore, I still firmly believe in a good old fashioned gender reveal blog post.

So far every single child in the Hahn family has very clearly expressed their preference for a baby SISTER, especially Joseph.

The 4 year old boy.

I was prepping him constantly over the last 2 weeks for the possibility that it might be a boy, and it was not going well. According to him, "boys are too naughty" and he "had a sensitivity that it was a girl".

At 16 weeks I had a really quick ultrasound to check in on the baby and I was pretty positive that I saw some boy parts, which made me try even harder to prep poor Joseph for another brother. He was still really resistant and not happy about this possibility but I went in today fully ready to see those part even more clearly and planned to buy Joseph donuts to soften the blow.

And apparently...

Clearly I am not an ultrasound tech and I know nothing because it is most definitely a 4th Hahn female!!!

I found that little layette in Lucy's baby box, totally untouched and thought it was so fitting since she is my other rainbow baby and she was the last girl baby I gave birth to. Also I just so happened to wear pink and purple to the ultrasound, completely unintentionally but still super fitting.

I am in a little bit of shock since I was so sure of whatever I saw on that other ultrasound, but the tech was very thorough and sweet baby girl was very, um, immodest, so it was very clear.
 
Joseph exclaimed so proudly that he "got his wish" and while I know he would have been so happy in the end with a second little bro, it was so sweet to see his utter excitement over a little sister.

The best part was the news from the doctor that everything looked perfectly healthy on the ultrasound, such amazing news and I am feeling so total overwhelmed by God's abundant generosity.

Thank you all SO SO SO much for your prayers, you are the best!!

  6. Congratulations! It will be nice to have a girl after 2 boys in a row! I had a little boy almost a year ago (baby #5) after 2 girls in a row and it was so exciting to get boy stuff out. Maybe just me?! ;)

  7. Congratulations. I've been reading your blog for many years and I knew you were having a girl because you have been following my gender pattern! I have 6 children (my youngest is 10) and I of course have 3 girls, followed by 2 boys and then a girl. My youngest is MUCH doted on by her older siblings :)
