We have met the halfway point in this pregnancy which is CRAZY! We had our anatomy scan last week and I'm so surprised that basically I've gotten my gender "preference" for the last four babies. Isn't that unlikely? Of course any healthy baby would have been completely fine, but I was hoping for a girl for Cecily's sake and for our sake. So, happily, Cecily will have a little almost-Irish twin sister and our sixth baby will not feel out-of-place in her girly clothes and accessories LOL. Everything looked great - baby was measuring right on schedule and weighed 9 ounces (smallish, but in the normal range, and to be expected since I don't have big babies). She was squirming lots but we got good pics, except for of the face - the placenta is attached in the front of my belly right now, so it was kind of in the way, but it does explain why movements are pretty infrequent still. She has a name (I think) already, but we're planning on keeping it a surprise til birth, at least as of right now.

Congrats on the girl, Melissa. Very exciting! I can't wait to see what you name her. :)

We are so excited for another girl. Dad can't wait to meet Cecily in July, hopefully it won't be as long to meet this little one! We miss you and love you all so much.
