It's a ...

Twenty weeks tick by quickly when you're adjusting in adoption and figuring out a new normal. But Thursday indeed marked twenty weeks of pregnancy and the long awaited day to find out if we'll be seeing a lot more pink or blue in our future. I felt for some time that we were having a girl while Jason was sure we were having a boy and both kids, for their own reasons, wanted to have a new sister.

Our appointment was early Thursday so after a restless night's sleep we were up early to find out together. We asked the technician to let us guess and it was obvious none of us were experts at how to tell gender over ultrasound. I marveled at the pictures we saw. Baby was sucking it's thumb and wiggling around.

Then the great big question was answered.      

The boys are out numbered at our house. We'll be welcoming another girl this year! Both kids were super excited and Jason and I were (still are) a little in shock. Somehow, even though I thought girl, we both held the belief that girls are rare in the Tegen family. So, we are still taking it in..

and celebrating pink with two thrilled siblings!
