We're having a......

There is a regular post below today if you haven't seen it.  BUT, here's the big news I'm dying to share!

So, the ultrasound went well today and everything looks good.  But, the extra information is that I'm going to need to get some superhero fabric like this.....


.....and I'm finally going to get to use one of these.


Yes, it's a GIRL!  It still doesn't feel real, but I am THRILLED.  The boys need a little more work.  I knew they were rooting for another boy, but I think a girl will be really good for them.

If you want a good laugh, I recorded Baden's reaction.  You have to at least watch the first 5 seconds to watch his face.  It's seriously funny.  Little does he know he'll end up adoring this little girl and loving the fact the HE gets to be the big brother now.


Thanks for sharing my excitement and thanks for sending all the pink vibes my way :)

WONDER WOMAN!!!! :) Congratulations - so excited for the whole family...even if Baden needs a little extra time to process the news. :)

Katie Walker said...

congratulations! how exciting to have a girl! I just found out I'm having my 4th boy, and my oldest boy was very relieved!

Jessica said...

Hahahahahaha! I'm dying watching that video. My son got mad when I installed his sister's carseat next to his. According to him, he didn't want her to sit next to him - he wanted her to go in the trunk.

Eveline Trap said...

Jippppeeeee! I'm really happy for all of you! That baby girl is so lucky with two brothers as helpers and protectors! Lots of love from the Netherlands!

Erin said...

That video is going to be a huge hit when they're older! I love how seriously he says, "I'm gonna chuck her out the window." and you're quiet "we'll work on it." I knew you were hoping girl so I"m happy for you! I'm excited to see all the fun girl stuff you'll come up with!

Stella Marie said...

~ko said...

Eeeeeeeeppppppp!!! Sooooo thrilled for y'all!!!

Krista said...

I'm super happy for you and your husband!!! I don't know you, but I still think you needed a girl this time. :)
Badens reaction is hilarious, even though I know it shouldn't be. Sounds like my 5 yo son, when he says he doesn't like girls, I'll ask him if he's going to get married one day and he says "yes but I'm going to kick my wife out of my house".

dawn - Mi rincón de mariposas said...

Congratulations!!!

Cerise said...

LOL!! Oh that was hysterical!! My eldest keeps asking for a little sister...he doesn't want a brother cause he's got one and one is ENOUGH.
Congrats on the little lady!! That is so exciting.

Tiffany said...

Awww, i for really..

Megan said...

Haha! I am SOOOO happy for you! (and selfishly for me too, your tutorials are awesome, and now I can look forward to more girly ones!)
My nephew had a similar reaction when he heard of his future little sister (the second one). He was so confused because he "already had a little sister"! Too cute!

The Miller Five said...

A GIRL!!!! YAY! Congratulations. Poor Baden's face is priceless!!

The Borja Family said...

Guess he was hoping for another brother....chuck her out the window.LOL

Anonymous said...

HAHA! Funniest thing I've seen all day. I was hoping it was going to be a girl! I have two older brothers and I know my mom reeeally was hoping I was me! I'm sure your boys will learn to love their little sister. I know mine enjoyed teasing me, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. ;) Congratulations!

Nicole said...

Congratulations! We had a girl after two boys and I kept asking them if they were sure it was a girl. The video is great, I'm sure they will love watching it when they are older.

Mandy Beyeler said...

Big huge congrats!!

Sarah Lee Park said...

Ahhhh!! So so excited for you and your boys :) It'll be such a nice and interesting shift in the home dynamic...but I definitely agree that your boys are going to be AWESOME big brothers!!

Lies(je) said...

Congratulations! Oh my, that video is hilarious. I watched it 5 times in a row and I almost peed my pants laughing :-)

Julie Rogers said...

YEAH!!! I have two little boys with a girl on the way too---our girls will know how to put with up with anything:)

Oh my gosh, I nearly snorted water out of my nose!! Ha ha, too funny!! Oh, and, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!! So happy that everything is going great for you.

Sarah said...

Oh girl! 'Cause clearly it would be inappropriate to say "oh boy!" :)

Congratulations to you all! You're gonna have so much fun! :)

cathgrace said...

Yay! I am so excited for you! I love my son, but my daughter and I have a special bond that I never imagined, and the older she gets (she's 10) the better it is, she sits and sews with me, (we have presented the same opportunity to our son, he just prefers legos) and she will tell me if she thinks I look cute or not honestly!

Anonymous said...

Congrats!!! Baden was too cute in the video! I laughed so hard I peed my maternity pants! Haha!

Kellers said...

I follow you regularly and never comment, but had to tell you congratulations!! I recently found out I am having a girl also. This our eighth baby, but only our second girly! I am so very happy for you and your family! Adrienne

NakiMum said...

Congratulations on the girl. Baden's face is priceless to say the least. Enjoy the remainder of the pregnancy and hugs all round

Oh my goodness, that is so funny, I can't stop laughing!!! Congrats!!!! Yay!!! It was so fun to have Bailey after two boys. I love love love my boys and it's so fun to have a girl that likes the same stuff.

Erin said...

I am dying laughing!! We had one son, and two girls (in the order) when we found out we were having another girl and our son's reaction was similar. He was going to throw her out with the trash! But he was 7 and really hoping for a brother. Not in the cards buddy! Congratulations! And my son's condolences to Baden. :)

cheryl said...

I had to run downstairs and let my husband watch. such a cutie!!
congratulations!!!

Laura Lopez said...

I've been following your blog for a long while now, I love everything you do especially your boy stuff. I have 2 boy's and now a little girl who is just 2. They will come around. They are such the protectors over her and now are asking for another girl. They can't get enough of her. She play's superhero's with them and they play house and kitchen with her. They'll love her once she gets here. How can you not love a little girl. The video was hilarious though, keep up your amazing work.

Twins Squared said...

Yeah a girl!!!! Baden's reaction is hilarious!

ArtistikDiva said...

So HAPPY for you and your family...many blessings!

Siobhan said...

WoooHoooooooooooo!!! I'm so happy for you, that is fantastic news for you all.

Baden's reaction is absolutely PRICELESS and you are so lucky to have captured that. My boys would be the same.

Lovely to see you so blessed Cheri!

Saunders Family said...

YAY!!! So freaking funny! I showed my hubby and we laughed and laughed.

Cherry Blossoms said...

Congrats on the little lady! I know so many people expecting this summer. Its like a baby moon has gone off.

Sarah G said...

I have two boys and a girl. When my twins were born (one boy, one girl) - I thought my oldest son would prefer his brother. When they came all he wants to do is snuggle with his sister. So they do change their mind! But I love the quote "I'm gonna chuck her out the window." That's a priceless video. Wish I had taped my son's reaction!

Suzanne Winter said...

Wohooo for a little girl - baby girl already has her brothers wrapped around her little finger ;o) They will love her and I think a girl softens their edges and the boys toughen her up! I know my brother is so thankful for his two big sisters (He has claimed that he 'understands' women, hahahahah). Anyway, Congrats and have fun sewing!!!

Rae said...

i wish i had been more clever like him every time (4x's) my parents brought home a boy. i just cried lol, LOVED IT, had to pin it!!!!!

Lindsay said...

Congratulations! You got a girl! That is SO exciting. :) And how cute that you captured your son's reaction on camera.

Jenni said...

Oh my gosh. That's hilarious! Congrats on the little girl...being the youngest of three with two older brothers, I can tell you she will be well taken care of! (c:

Laryssa said...

Boom baby! (think Emperor's New Groove for context) Awesome! Congratulations!

Janet said...

I'm so thrilled for you and your family! Congratulations on your exciting news! :)

Rachel O. said...

Girl, girl, girl, girl!! YAY! Congratulations, that is so exciting!! Ha - and your son's reaction. His face in the beginning is SO funny.

sunnie said...

Congrats!! Love the video! "Chuck her out the window..." Hahaha

Katie said...

That is the funniest video ever. I thought I was going to die when I saw his face, but then when he said he was going to chuck her out the window... Oh I laughed so hard I cried. Thank you so much for sharing that, you totally made my night! And yay for a girl! You are going to love having a girl. Congratulations to your whole family (even if your boys don't realize how cool it is yet:)

Sam Adams said...

Aww sweet, you can hear your happiness in your voice. Such an exciting time!

shelly said...

Congratulations! I'm the girl that came after two boys and, though I got torment regularly, I loved having protectors. I wished to have a boy first so my future girl(s) could have an older brother. (Alas, I got a girl first, but what can you do, right? :)

Aunt LoLo said...

First off, congrats!!

Second, I understand his pain. ;-) I have two kids (girl, 6 and boy, 4 + one due any day) When hubby asked my four year old boy the other night if he was going to be nice to his new little sister (due any day), he said, "No! I'm going to move out, and find a girl, and she'll be my husband, and WE'LL have babies...and I'll be nice to THEM." Boys just don't appreciate a good dose of pink in their lives. ;-)

Erin Shakespear said...

Just had to add my congratulations! We had three boys before we got a girl. And then we even had another girl after that. (I didn't think we knew how to make that model...I thought we could only create the one type of baby!) So, I know how exciting it is to get a girl. It's almost like expecting your first child again, right? Such a whole new world.

And now we're expecting baby #6. We'll find out what we're having in four weeks.

joylyn said...

This video is so funny! I LOVE IT! Baden is awesome! And congratulations on the girl. It has always been my opinion that everyone should have at least one of each because both are so amazing.

chronopcha said...

My congratulations from Russia!! This is my first comment here for the last year or more:) and my tears of joy to hear your news can't be held back..Best wishes to your big family:)

Candace Martineau said...

I'm gonna chuck her out the window! Haha, so cute. Congrats!

Michelle Johnnie said...

Oh that is so so so so exciting! I'm thrilled for your family. His face and phrase is awesome! That's so great you got it on film. In the future, when he is beating up some mean guy who is being unkind to his little sister, they will look back at that and laugh themselves to death! Yeah!!!!!!

Leah said...

Long time reader from Australia, wanted to say how great it was to read your news! I have three girls and a boy.... Girls are hard work , but you have the two boys to keep her in line! Congrats and can't wait to meet her here on your blog. X

Jessie said...

Congratulations! I was much more nervous about having a girl, knowing that I would be her role model for womanhood, that she would look to me for how to be. And so I better be confident and kind to myself and others and positive and humble and thoughtful and virtuous and on it goes. And now, I've got my mini-me, who daily reflects this mama -- the good, the bad and the ugly. It is frustrating, enlightening, humbling and I am stretched and refined everyday, compelled to assess myself and my many weaknesses and my many strengths as they are played out in my daughter. And I wouldn't change it for anything. Congrats again.

mali said...

I am so happy! Can't wait to see her.

eva maria said...

Congrats all the way from Belgium!! I've watched Baden's reaction a few times, it's the best! He'll laugh at it too one day, and hopefully his little sister will forgive him his honest first reaction :-))

Tracy said...

Congratulations to you and your family! A little girl!!!! Can't wait to see her.

Adorable! I love that he said "I'm going to chuck her out the window"..that's something my boys would say (I have 2 as well). Congrats on the girl! I'm hoping when I have another...very far in the future it will be a girl! :)

Jenn said...

He is sad because he knows he will now be her protecter and he and Rex will have to intimidate any boy she dates. He will love his baby sister, I know it.

Congratulations on the baby!

Rachel H. said...

Congrats! I'm so happy for you and your little bunch :) Yay pink!

Natosha Zachary said...

Oh my goodness, that is SO funny! Congrats on having a girl. Trust me, the boys will eventually come around. Have a great weekend!

Michael and Rachelle said...

Yay!! I am so excited for you and the new little princess. You will have so much fun with all the bows and dresses. I loved the video and had to watch it twice. My brother and I are best friends. I know he will come around.

Fernanda said...

That´s so cool! I´m having a girl too! I´m so excited to start sewing for a girl! Congratulations!

Lance and Meg said...

Congrats!! I am so happy for you guys. This little girl was meant to be in your family!

Erica @ Acire Adventures said...

Congrats! She is going to be so well looked after with two big brothers! Baden's reaction was HILARIOUS, you handled it so nicely too. You're obviously a sweet mom. You must be so excited to get to experience the other gender the third time around. :) So happy for your family!

Dagny said...

Congratulations! You are going to get so much mileage out of that video clip when Baden, and your daughter (eek!), are older. Having a little girl after boys (I have one older son) is so fun and so different. I'm sure you'll all love it, and her.

Anonymous said...

Congratulations! How exciting!

homemade by jill said...

Congratulations! That video is way too funny ... chuck her out the window. Hee!

Corey Moortgat said...

Oh, congrats!!! That's what I have- two boys, then a girl- my daughter's three years old now, and I can still hardly believe I finally got my girl!!! You'll have SO MUCH FUN decorating and shopping for her. And my second boy (the middle child) has the greatest relationship with my daughter- they are wonderful to watch together... Congrats again!

Marilyn said...

Yayayayayayaaa!!!!!! Congratulations!!!!!!! How amazing!!!!! A little girl!!! What was Mr. Roars reaction?

Priceless! Congrats to you and your family.

Oh Cheri! This is such great news and I've been praying for you since your post of IFV. I just have my little dude and that's how I found you while looking for boy ideas. I love everything you do and will enjoy all of the awesome GIRLY things you will come up with. Maybe give me some ideas (and hope) for my own little girl some day!

Megan10e said...

That reaction is the best! I teared up when I read this post. I have been working like crazy and not keeping up with my blogs, so I was so excited to read that not only are you pregnant, but you're having a girl! Hooray for you! I'm having my third too. Not sure what we are having yet, but it'll be a tiebreaker either way!

Jami said...

Congratulations! When my son found out he was getting a 2nd sister (he wanted a brother so bad!) he asked me to go back to the hospital and exchange her. His 3 year old brain assumed it was like Wal-Mart. He's 14 and she's 10 and they are incredibly close.

Delia said...

I am SOOOOOO excited for you! yay! Baden is hilariously cute...throw her out the window. :) ha! He's gonna love her.

Kim said...

LOL. We have girl, boy, girl, girl. When we told the older three number four was a girl my 4 yo son cried! He figure the pattern should mean a boy was next. He keeps saying, "Maybe the next one will be a boy." ;)

LewisMcLaughlinFamily said...

That is so cute! My boys (all 4 of them) reacted the same way when they found out they were getting a sister last year. She's now 8 months old and they are in love with her.

Lindagirl said...

Congratulations to your whole family! What a sweet blessing!

HSockwell said...

Yippee! We are having a girl too (although we only have one boy). I am excited to see what all girly stuff you will be posting soon! Congratulations!!!

Kacey said...

I keep revisiting this post...Baden is too funny. My husband and I keep joking about chucking things out the window. :) Congrats!!

Summer said...

Haha....hilarious video! But congrats on going pink this time! Little girls are SO MUCH FUN! xoxo

Becky @ The Barefoot Seamstress said...

Oh she is going to love this video one day! Congrats, very exciting!

Megan Belcher said...

My husband and I just watched Baden's reaction! He's cracking up! In fact, he's been walking around the house this morning saying "I'm gonna chuck her out the window." Haha, how exciting to finally get a little girl to join your family!

Livin' the Yeh Life! said...

That was the best video! So, so funny! Thanks for the laugh! And, congratulations! I am so excited to see some of your girl ideas!

Chuck her out the window!! I hope that goes viral - SOOO funny.

My little boy (4) has one big sister (5) and two little sisters (2 & 4 months). When I was pregnant with our newest I knew he was hoping for a boy, but he's been the greatest big brother. He's actually super close to the baby and he's the best of any of my kids at getting her to calm down if she's crying. He's so patient and gentle with her it melts my heart. She adores him and thinks everything he does is hilarious. My kids play about equal parts fairies and superheroes. Anyway, congratulations on a girl, it will be so much fun and I know your boys will absolutely fall in love with her.

Anonymous said...

aw I hope he changes his mind a little later.
my cousin Chase was not very happy when his little sister came in the picture. It took a bit to love her. Hoping that would be different for your boys! :)

Coley said...

That is too funny...and you're right, he will just LOVE his lil' sis to pieces, and will be her biggest protector :D Congrats on your baby girl!!!

Ann Marie Queen said...

What an adorable reaction. So cute that you got it on film. He's going to love his little sister so much, and you'll be able to show him what he thought of her! Congratulations on your littlest one!

Laura @ ON{thelaundry}LINE said...

hahahahahaha he cracks me up! one for his wedding, or hers, lol

Jennifer said...

Congrats Cheri!! I am so excited for you...and too see all of the amazing things you will be making for your new sweet baby girl!

alissa apel said...

That video was so funny! Congrats!

sarah said...

my husband and i find out this afternoon if our third is a boy or a girl. we have a 4 yr old girl and 2 year old boy now. the girl desperately wants a baby sister. if you ask her what the baby is, she will tell you with no doubt that it is a girl. i had shown this video to my husband when you first posted it and last night and today its been a little secret joke between us that if this babe is a boy, emma will also want to chuck it out the window. im absolutely going to video her reaction, just in case. :)

thanks for your blog, and i hope you are feeling really good at this point, and able to get all the work done you need to. (i know what its like to rip out a moldy shower. i re-tiled ours 7 months pregnant at 3am a couple years ago.)
