Wow, I just realized that it was one year ago yesterday that we found out Addie was a girl! I remember anxiously waiting for the ultrasound tech to finish taking her measurements and tell us the sex, but Addie wasn't cooperating. She was so active at this point. Very much a squirmy little baby. The ultrasound tech said she thought she knew what the baby was but wanted to wait for the doctor to confirm it. So, when Dr McCoy came in, she ran the probe over my belly, making sure everything was looking okay and then shut the machine off. She handed me a towel and turned to ask us if we had any questions. P said "Yes, what about the sex?" Dr McCoy had looked confused and said, "What about it...are you not able to have..." and trailed off. She kind of paused and then said "Oh, you mean the sex of the baby! Oops, sorry! Its a girl!"
I remember feeling ecstatic. I didn't really care what we were having, as long as it was healthy, but I was happy the baby was a girl. I thought she was a boy...I was SURE of it, boy was I wrong. She turned out to be one of the most beautiful little girls I have ever seen in my entire life. And, if my dreams are any indication of what she would look like today, she would be a stunner. In my dreams I picture a little girl with curly strawberry blond hair, bright blue eyes and a dimple in her left cheek. Miss you sweet girl!
