What Do You Mean It's A Girl?

"What do you mean it's a girl!?"
"You're serious? You're not messing with me?"
Maddox's outfit: polo | shorts (only $6)

Baby Mills number two is a GIRL! Que all the girly squeals and shrieks from this mama!

If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat (themoderntulip) you saw our big reveal Friday after our anatomy scan. For those of you who are just catching up, we were told at 12 weeks that this baby was a boy with 80% assurance. Well, doc was wrong. I wish I could have snapped our experience at the anatomy scan, but they don't allow cell phones. Regardless, the moment was priceless when our tech revealed that this was in fact a baby girl. I literally burst into tears I was so thrilled! Obviously I was happy with another baby boy, but for some reason I have had a gut feeling since the beginning it was a girl and when she told us, my heart just swelled with joy!

Also, we were totally spoiled because the doctor surprised us and gave us a free 3D anatomy scan! We didn't have one with Maddox so it was super awesome to have that. I love that we actually have the same ultrasound picture with Maddox where his hand is up to his nose, identical to this photo, just not 3D. Eeek!

I can't wait to experience a little girl! I can't wait to watch Maddox be a big brother/protector of a his little sister. I can't wait to watch Jon be a Daddy to his little princess. #allthefeels

And in the midst of all this excitement I spent almost all my spare time this weekend envisioning and planning the nursery. I've already created the mood-board ( I will reveal it to you later this week). I also purchased the crib, glider, rug, chandelier, mirror, dresser and nightstands. Someone please take away my credit card. I haven't even started on the clothes...

Speaking of clothes, I told Jon to go ahead and get a second job, we're going to need it! All you girl mama's, I'm going to need you to go ahead and tell me all your favorite places to shop for your girls. Etsy is going to break my wallet I swear #sorrynotsorry
