the big reveal.

We had our "20 week ultrasound" today. We saw this little bundle of joy, infantino, tiny tyke, baby bean, our beloved Cubbie squirming and trying to hide itself from the camera. Cubbie takes after Mr. Allen in that regard - not cooperating for pictures.

Well, you know... the technician asked if we wanted to find out the sex, and we talked about it on the way there and decided maybe we didn't want to know after all. Aren't surprises what life is all about?

So, we'll stick to the gender neutral crib, the gender neutral clothing, the gender neutral "it"-ness of the pregnancy and wait until mid-March to find out what our baby is.

with patience. (as we long await our little Cubster.)

No. I'm totally kidding.

I've already waited 4+ months for this day (not to mention 22 years.) We found out instantly. And our baby, Cubbie, will be coming out of that womb and soon to enter a world such like this...

We are having a BABY GIRL! :] And there's no "Maybe, well, it looks like a girl." No, we got a good view of those parts and we know. And we are so excited!

Oh, I can't wait to hold her. My baby girl.

I decided during the ultrasound that I could spend the next 4+ months just watching her squirm and move and grow, and I would be 100% content. I love her, I love her, I love her!

And soon, we will all meet her. (Well, you'll have to visit or expect a visit for that to happen.) Our little miss...
our [Nora Jean Allen].

with love, joy, peace, patience (maybe), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.


  1. I feel a little emotional. I love her name. I love that she's a her. :) I love her outfit. :) Now I'll need some of that self control not to go buy her a million things... ;)

  2. Love it! I laughed out loud when you faked us out because I thought "NO WAY are they waiting!" I love that name! So classy!

  3. A GIRL!!! I am so excited for you and I can't wait to meet her :-)

  4. Congrats on your baby girl!! I have a 15 month old girl and another one due in January. I am kinda partial to sweet little angel girls!
    I am so glad you found my blog and that you liked my tunic. I love the color too!
    You are going to LOVE being a mommy to a little girl!

  5. I don't even know you and I'm so happy for you! Little girls are so much fun. Yay!

    Thanks for your comment on my chandelier post. If you lived in Boise I'd give you the chandy or find one to paint pink for you.

  6. Congratulations on your little girl... there's just something about girls that makes the world so much sweeter. (I have two...)
