It's a......

Yesterday I had the privilege to accompany my sister in law ,Liz, my brother, Stephen and Liz's sister to the Doctors office to find out if I was going to have another nephew or a niece.

My heart was racing with anticipation as every day went by, thinking just a few more days until I will be able to find out what this sweet child will be.

So yesterday morning I woke up bright and and early, got ready, and soon enough my brother pulled into the driveway. Liz was just radiant as she came out of the car and met me at the door.

I knew this was a day we all would remember.

The Doctor's office was just like any other. The smell of sanitary soap filled my nostrils as I found a seat in front of a very large window. The sun shone in brightly as Stephen and Nina (Liz's sister) squinted their eyes, while I contemplated taking Stephen's sunglasses off his head and putting them on.

Liz was signing in as my legs moved about and my hands fluttered to my purse which was on my lap. "Can't this move any faster!" I thought "I am dying of anticipation." Stephen eventually closed the shade so we could actually see as Liz came back and sat next to me.

Not too long after, her name was called....Smiles erupted as we all stood up. Of course it was short lived, because the nurse told us it would be a minute while they got Liz ready for the ultrasound. So again we sat back down.

Only a little time passed when we were all told we could go in. Machinery galore filled the room as Liz laid on the table with the smile still on her face. Finally the Doctor came in. Before I knew it I saw this small baby appear on the screen.

Oh, man what a moment! That was my niece or nephew. I could see the foot and heard the heart beat. My own heart fluttered as I saw Liz's smile and Stephen's eyes get big and proud. That was my niece or nephew.

And then....what we all had been waiting for. The doctor very casually announced, "It's a girl!!"

"Pigtails!!" Liz said as I laughed and Stephen hugged me. What a moment, what a day, what a girl!!!

Yay!!!! My very first niece is due on the twenty fifth of July hopefully she will wait until the twenty eighth. My birthday!

I hope you all enjoyed this very special will follow sometime in July!:)
