Baby name

I have been thinking/hoping for a girl since we first learned I was pregnant. So I basically had a name picked out two months ago. I told one of my sisters and I kept referring to the baby as a girl to Greg. I also used brain washing techniques of saying the name I wanted over and over to him. When we found out the baby was a girl I was super excited but Greg had never said he agreed to the name so I was expecting a few more months of brain washing. We called his parents and told them the news. They asked if we had a name picked out and Greg said, "Tell them." I was like, "What, you agree to the name?!" And once we had announced to the grandparents it's pretty much final. After all that, our baby girl's name will be Caroline Paige Gessel.

It's a Girl!

So just in case any of you missed the boat. I am pregnant, due February 25th and I just found out I'm having a girl. I am super excited. I kept telling Greg it was a girl and he would say it's a boy so the boys would always outnumber the girls. So yesterday during conference when there was a talk specifically for fathers of baby girls, I poked Greg and said this is for you. He replied, "We'll see." I'm so excited! I already have started perusing baby girl items and fabrics. I did have some self control and didn't buy baby girl things before we knew for sure. Luke is really interested in babies right now and I'm taking that as a good sign. That's about it until we finalize a name.
