We went to the doctor today with our whole family to see whether our new little one is a boy or girl. For the last four weeks Drew and Madelyn have been calling our baby "Scout." Drew really likes the name Scout and has been looking forward to a new baby brother. Madelyn has too. One day Drew shot me with a nerf gun right on my belly, it didn't hurt a bit, but he ran up to me and gave me a big hug and said, "I'm SO sorry. Are you okay Scout?" Madelyn is always very careful and makes sure I don't get involved in any wrestling or any rough play with the family.
So today was the big day and we went to go see if the baby was a boy afterall. When we got there Drew told the nurse that if it was a boy we were going to name it Scout. (This hasn't really passed by me or anything, Drew just LOVES that name for some reason) The nurse asked what we were going to name it if it were a girl. Drew said, "I don't know." She said maybe we'd have to name her "Scoot." Well the doctor got on the machine and found that he feels 95% sure we are having a "ScOOt." Another GIRL!!!! We were all kind of surprised. I wasn't really hoping for one or the other, but in the back of my head I just kind of thought it would be a boy. I'm glad I'm off the hook of trying to sway Drew away from the name "Scout" though. We don't even have any girl names at all! Most of all we are SO grateful that the baby looks wonderful and healthy and has a heart that is beating!! We can't wait for you to join our family little "Scoot!"
