IT'S A GIRL!!!!!


That's right...Baby E is a SHE! Though it was not as easy to find this out as I had thought! At first her umbilical cord was between her legs. The doctor tried shaking Shana's belly to move it. That didn't work. Then the doctor tried different angles. That too did not seem to work. So, she tried another approach. Just as she was getting to the place where we would be able to see...our modest little girl put her arm between her legs!!! Finally though...we were able to see that Baby E was a she!! YEAH!!!!
Margaret Danielle Edinger will be making her debut in March. When we first got on the baby train...her due date was March 19th. Now the doctor is saying it might be closer to March 12th. The date is still a little fuzzy because our bundle of joy is very...ummm..."healthy". If 50 % is your average size baby...Margaret is an over achiever! She scored an 89% on the Baby-Size-O-Meter. Though we're hoping she won't be too big for Shana's sake! The doctor said she was "text book perfect"....who could ask for more! Time for me to get use to PINK! (our blog will not be pink for long...I just changed it to celebrate our little girl!) I love this picture. Every time we've seen her she has her hand up on her face(well...except the first time we saw her when she just had arm buds and no hands yet!!).

Awww... I just love baby pics! She's adorable... We got a few w/ Kalila's hands up like that too. In one it looked like she was praying though lol. I think it's my fav.

Hey, it's been a long time, maybe since shortly after we moved away from the Clarksville/M'boro areas! Didn't know you were expecting til today, but we're psyched for you! Girls are great...but so are boys! They're all wonderful! LOL And don't worry, there are alternatives to pink--we opted for purple as our feminine fave! Congrats and best wishes!

We did purple too, mixed w/ baby blue (girly stuff can be found in it). Oddly enough her fav colour turned out to be green!
