There was a lot of anxiousness and excitement going around our household this Valentine's Day. First, Sienna was absolutely THRILLED that she got to have extra sugary treats and a Valentine's Day party. I think her favorite Valentine's treat was from Scott. He gave her a Little Mermaid valentine that had a pink sucker attached; you would've thought she won the lottery! She danced around and around with that sucker in her mouth and couldn't have been happier. Precious!
Pops and Grandma took Sienna out for a Valentine's date, so Scott and I could enjoy dinner together at PotPie. We had an exciting moment at dinner - we found out if we were welcoming a new son or new daughter into our family! The previous day, we had an ultrasound to check on the little life growing in my belly. Like with Sienna, we had the ultrasound technician write down the baby's gender in a card. With Sienna, the card was for Scott's birthday. So this time around, the card was a Valentine's Day card to him from both his kiddos.
Sienna is going to have a little sister!!! We couldn't be more excited!!! We both thought we were having a boy, but we were thrilled to find out we are adding another little girl to our family. Secretly, I was pulling for a girl. I wanted Sienna to have a sister!
When we came home from dinner, we asked Sienna to guess if she was going to have a baby brother or a baby sister. Her response? "A baby booty shake!" She proceeded to dance around shaking her little bum in her footie pajamas. (I am starting to see how our encouraging the booty shake might backfire in so many ways... ha!) When we told her she was going to have a baby sister, she started screaming with excitement and running around the room. So darn cute! She is going to be a great big sis. Bossy for sure. But great!
