As you can imagine, we are over the moon! I had thought she was a girl from day one. The day we found out we were expecting, I found myself saying "she." I told David about a month ago that I "already assume she is a girl. I just need them to verify it at this point!" I was just so certain. I realized if I was wrong, I don't think I would have been able to trust myself ever again! I was so sure! As soon as they said "its a girl!" my heart swelled. Don't get me wrong, if it had been a boy, I would have been so completely over the moon, but it would have taken a bit of switching gears, mentally at least! I was just so certain.
We had originally decided to announce the name when she was born, but we couldn't help it. We love hearing her name. Penelope. Sweet Penny. Our lucky Penny. Penny Darling. And we love being able to hear our friends and family refer to her by name, too. It is just the sweetest sound. Plus, we didn't have a single negative reaction to the name, so that of course made it even more enjoyable.
We had a little gender reveal this weekend, where my sister and mother in law took video and pictures. I hope hoping to be able to share that sometime soon as well! Lets just say lots of pink silly string was involved...
