We're going to have a....

GIRL! Hah! I made you open the screen, all you Google Reader Blog followers.Yes, last Friday I had my 20-week appointment, and we found out in the sonogram that we are definitely having a girl. This was no surprise to either of us - I *knew* this baby was a girl, and I already know her name. Jane Afton Falke. I have strongly felt like being named for my maternal grandmother and Doug's paternal grandmother would be a blessing for this little girl. It was a very exciting appointment to say the least. Here are a couple of the sonogram pictures...
Okay, I know that sonogram pictures are pretty freaky and a lot of people would rather just think about the baby that will come out rather than how it looks right now. I'm one of those people too. But the lady doing the sonogram SWEARS the baby was "smiling", and I'll believe it.
And of course, Doug was very happy to see a nice, healthy spine. :)
