Sugar and Spice

So we found out this last week that we're having a girl. We're incredibly excited about it. She's pretty mellow in my tummy. She barely stretches out so I have to be really observant to notice the tapping. Anyway, here's a video of the ultrasound. (You might want to mute it cuz my doc is talking about fetus pee.) But yea. So we're going to name are little girl "Ursa Adriana Gimbel."







Ursa after the constellation/Bear,



and Adriana after my great great grandmother/sister.




The Austrian nickname for Ursa is Uschi, Uschi like Sushi (Yum), so that's mainly what we'll call her. And Ursa Minor because we're clever like that.

Anyway... so there you go.

Yay for girls! That's so exciting! I love the pee talk from Dr. Walker, his ramblings are always amusing :)

Wooohooo! I meant to ask you what you found out when I talked to you on Friday, but talking and driving are not things I can do at the same time.

Love it, love it, love it. Congratulations, Gimbels!

Gee thanks everybody. We're really excited.

...and I'm looking forward to looking like a pregnant lady rather than somebody that eats too many waffles.
