Last week, we learned that we're having a little girl! We opened the card from the ultrasound technician privately in the backyard, and it was such a special, simple, momentous time for our family. Emerson is going to have a little sister, and we love the way that sounds.
The next evening, we went over to my parents' house to deliver the big news...and to enjoy Dad's grilled hamburgers. After dinner, Mom & Dad & Emerson all grabbed balls of play dough that each had a few drops of red food coloring inside. After a quick squeeze, the play dough turned a light pink, and they knew...another granddaughter was on the way! Rachel joined us via the internet, and it was another special time of celebrating together.
The following evening, we went to Bobby's dad's house for another reveal. With the family gathered around the table, Bobby's dad cut into the cake, and the pink candy spilled out. Another girl for the Phillips family!
We loved getting to share the news privately with each of our families, and have had such a good time telling our friends. As each day goes by, and we visit more and more with Emerson about having a baby sister, it feels increasingly real. We are having another daughter. And goodness, we can't wait to meet her.
