The Big Announcement!






Well this time... the old wives' tale proved true!  The other thing that proved true was my neighbor's dream.  Remember these kids?  They had since moved away but dropped by right after thanksgiving.  After some hugs and small talk, one of the oldest girls (11yrs old) said to me, "the real reason we had to come by was because I've been having dreams about you.  I've been dreaming that you are pregnant and that it is a baby girl!"  Our chins dropped!  We were only about 6 weeks (?) pregnant at that time and NO ONE knew!  Pretty cool huh!

We are so thrilled to be having a little girl.  David's and my gut had been telling us this is what we would be having from the beginning.  I woke up yesterday before the doctor and thought to myself, "there is just no way this isn't a girl.  I know it is a girl."  Sure enough... the tech told us she was 100% sure it is a beautiful, healthy, little girl!  

The name...  She will go by Magnolia.  Magnolia is a name that we just came up with.  I'm not quite sure how, but I do know that we wrote it down a couple years ago as a leading contender.  She might eventually go by Maggie, but we are going to try to make Magnolia stick.  Catherine is a family name... my mom's name!  But it is also my grandmother name and my first name.  Although the spelling always alternates between C and K.  So my grammie is a K, mom is a C, I'm a K, and now little one will be a C!

I'm going to try to control myself from buying cute little girl things until the time comes closer... but it will be a challenge!!

WE ARE SO EXCITED!!

I'm adding a quick P.S.(several hours after first writing this post)... the more I think about it, I'm somewhat convinced that we got the name Magnolia from this beautiful song by Ellie Holcomb.  It's a song about God calling out to one of his daughters, wanting her to dwell in his love and be his "sweet companion."  Such a beautiful reminder of how God loves us and desires our hearts.  I am so excited to watch our Magnolia grow strong in the love of such a precious savior.
