Well, this is pretty belated...since we found out we were having a girl on October 15th:). But I am intent on making things special in their own way for our second child, while realistically knowing things will be different than they were the first time around.
It started with the ultrasound. Apparently finding out it's a girl isn't quite as obvious or dramatic as finding out it's a boy. We left the ultrasound being like,"Are we going with this call? Are we for sure it's a girl?" Whereas with Griffin we had clearly seen the evidence that we were having a boy.
When I got home from our appointment I started baking...pink cupcakes to be exact. I just wanted to be able to tell the grandparents in a special way and since we didn't have the patience to do the give-the-envelope-to-the-bakery thing, I decided to do the baking myself.
