Show me your genitals.

Well it took awhile, but now we know. The baby tried to wiggle around and confuse us, and we were like: Show me your genitals, your genitals.

And then it did!!!

So the final tally on your super psychicness was 15 boy and 12 girl.


It’s a girl!!!!!!!
Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice for the McCarthy’s!

What you are looking at in that picture is a birds eye view of our babies buns. Those three dots in the middle supposedly are the ladybits!

To say we are in shock would be an understatement. We were both COMPLETELY convinced we were having a boy. But that’s just not this baby girls style. She likes surprising us. In fact it took my buying pretty much the entire gap baby girl line for it to actually feel real.

And that is a poor cell phone capture of a 3d view of our baby. With her little hand up by her face. Snugglebug.

So now I know the baby in my tummy is a precious little girl. And I couldn’t love her more. Her daddy is very excited, but very very nervous. Don’t worry though- he has purchased himself a book called:

“Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters: 10 secrets every father should know”

So I think we’re good 😉

Now I need to get to work actually doing a little girls room! EEPS!!

    Dude, the title of this post got me an “inappropriate site message” at the SCHOOL that I work at. No worries, I just went to the homepage instead. If I get fired for baby porn, I’m blaming you though.
    CONGRATS! I love your inspiration for girls rooms…can’t wait to see what you come up with.

    It’s a girl! How exciting!! Awww…congratulations!

  35. therobynnest February 24, 2011 at 9:22 pm

    Yay, yay, yay! We are having a girl too, and I’m just a few weeks ahead of you. I have acne this time around (mildly) which I did not with my son, so that should have been my first clue it was a girl. Also I am way fatter.

    Someone told me today (who does not read your blog) that I should name my baby Bailey.

    I am completely bonkers nesting already. Are you? I wake up thinking of things I want to organize. We’ve already painted the baby room and I’ve made half of my curtains:

    and, the craziest thing that I could have paid someone else to do, I’m making the baby’s Roman shades to go behind the curtains to have black-out.

    It is 100 times easier than I ever imagined it would be, and so, so satisfying.

  36. Emily February 25, 2011 at 7:59 pm

    So exciting! Girls rule, boys drool!

  37. mal March 2, 2011 at 11:59 am
