Will She or Won't She?

(ummmm, yikes)

So now that we know we are having a girl, this is the question I have been asked the most:
"So are you hoping she has curly hair like you?"
To which I lovingly reply: "Ummmm, no."
Do I love my hair? No.
Do I like my hair? No.
Do I tolerate my hair? Sometimes
I know lots of people "say" they would love to have curly hair, but frankly, I just don't believe them. I must admit that for the majority of my life I did not have the faintest idea how to do my hair, so I am sure that is why I am so against it.
Oh the awkwardness of my childhood, and my crazy hair. I hated my hair so much that I had a stage that lasted a few years I am sure where my hair was just in a bun.
The pictures I could show you would prove my point nicely, but alas, I am too embarrassed to even look at them myself, let alone let others see them.
I think to myself, "why would I wish that self esteem issue on my child?"
I know it would be cute to see a little girl with bouncy curly hair and a bow, and I know that I kinda know how to do it now, but I am just imagining her coming to me (like I did to my mom) begging to spend tons of money to get it straight, and trying anything you can imagine to get it that way.
And by the way, I am not convinced that my boys aren't going to have curly hair either, especially Kade. My brothers' hair didn't go curly until they hit puberty. Kade is a Martin (my family name) through and through, and I just see him with freckles and curly hair just like me, and I am okay with that. I am okay with my boys getting my hair, because a boy with a fro is just cool.
So my dear Kylee, if the good Lord thinks you need to have curly hair, then I will do everything I can to make it cute, so you don't have the issues with it like I did, but if you get straight hair, then I am good with that too. Love you baby girl.

Well Its Official

We went to the doctor today and he told us we are having a......................


We are very excited and kind of relieved because everyone was kind of expecting a girl at this point.
I was a little nervous to find out because I didn't want anyone to be disappointed (even our boys were aching for a girl). Adam and I were totally fine with whatever, I am just thankful to be able to bare children when there are so many out there who cannot.
I think I was expecting a boy though because when he said she was a girl, I was a little shocked. I can't be more excited though, we are all very happy.
So now I've got to figure out some way to be crafty and make hundreds and thousands of cute little bows and whatnot.
Jen, don't be alarmed if I come to your house and MAKE you teach me how to do it.
And as you can see to the right of the screen, we have already named her. I had this name picked out when I was in high school, but never really thought it would stick with Adam. I was wrong. He has been dead set on this name for our first girl since we got married. Welp, 7 years later and we can finally use it.
