It's a GIRL!

We found out last week that we are having another precious HEALTHY little GIRL!!!
We cannot wait to meet her!!!!
So, we wanted to have some fun with the gender reveal.  Josh and I went to the doctor on Thursday for the ultrasound and visit with Dr. McDonald.  We told the ultrasound tech that we didn't want to know the gender right then and she wrote it down and stuck it in a sealed envelope.  It was hard to not just find out, but I was excited to wait and find out with Josie.  I'm not going to lie.... We were VERY tempted to give in during the ultrasound and even once we had the sealed envelope, but we were patient :)  Our visit went great!  The baby's heart rate was 140 (same as Josie's heart rate from her 18 week visit -- I didnt' know that until after the dr's visit, though).  This baby is an active little gal!  She was flipping all over the place!
So, we left the doctor's office and went straight to a children's shop in Memphis and picked out a boy gift and girl gift and then gave the envelope to the clerk and asked her to open it privately and wrap the appropriate gift.  We walked next door to shop a few minutes and then we anxiously returned.  I was absolutely starving!  So, we stopped at Chili's for a quick bite and then headed home to get Josie.  We all came home and Josie opened the present!!!
I was thinking boy, Josie thought boy and Josh thought girl.....

 IT'S A GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yay!!!!!!!!!  We were soooooo excited!!!!
Josie was quite shocked but excited!
Then, Josie called all of our family to share the news!!!!
We are so excited to have another little girl!  I had thought the whole time that I was pregnant that it was a boy, which is funny, because I have always pictured us with just girls!  Josh is excited about having another Daddy's little girl.  Josie is ready to be the BEST big sister in the world!  We are ready for June!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, we have to decide on a name for this sweet gal :)
Josie's vote is "Wall" or "Picture Frame"..... pretty sure we will have to keep thinking!
