Baby #3 is a...


Another girl!  We're going to have THREE GIRLS.

That is insane.
We had our big ultrasound yesterday, and everything looks wonderful. 
Four heart chambers, a beautiful little brain, ten tiny fingers and ten tiny toes.  She even let us see her swallowing skills. (Mmmm, amniotic fluid!)
She gave us a solid wave hello.  ("They never do that," the ultrasonographer mentioned.)
Would you just look at that tiny little perfect leg?  Thigh, knee, calf, arch of her foot, toes...

She's perfect, as far as we can tell.

So far, Elaina wants to name her "Zshu-zshu-zshu Baby," and Chloë think we should call her "Uhluckah."  They both took to the news of a new little sister really well.  Chloë's whole face lit up when I told her the baby in my tummy was a girl, and Elaina blankly said "oh," and turned around and ran off.  Since we told them the news yesterday, my tummy has received lots of affectionate rubs, pats, and kisses.  "Goodnight, Baby Sister," they said, as they hugged my tummy last night. 

We are pretty excited.  And by pretty excited, I mean totally thrilled.  We're happy that she's safe and sound in my tummy, growing bigger every day, but we sure are looking forward to meeting her in 4 1/2 or 5 months.
