Baby number 2 is a ... the actual reveal

Yall remember we sent these in the mail:

And this is what it looks like scratched off. 

It's another little girl!! 

I couldn't be more surprised. I swore it was a boy. I actually asked the ultrasound tech to check multiple times. She said this one is definitely a girl. 

We couldn't be more thrilled. We love having a little girl. And now a reason to reuse all these cute clothes and bows. And the nursery is finished!! We are moving Olivia to the guest room, and instead of having to buy navy crib sheets, curtains, etc. - the nursery will stay as is.

Olivia will love having a sister. She already says "baby sister." But seems bummed that baby sister isn't here yet. All this talk, and we've produced no baby. 

Names will be impossible, just like with Olivia. I think our best bet is to have it down to 5 or so going into the delivery room. It worked out well with Olivia - hopefully that will work this time. 

So. Much. Pink. I couldn't be more thrilled! Anytime I'm shopping for clothes for Olivia, I'm now justifying the purchase with "it'll get wear from two girls!" And Dan has already relegated himself to a life full of girls - so he wasn't even surprised. 


  1. This is so exciting!!!!! Congrats lady!!! I can't wait to hear the name you choose and to see Olivia's big girl room!

  2. How exciting!! Congratulations on adding some more pink to your family :) You make the cutest girls so I can't wait to see what little sister looks like. I'm with Olivia and am anxious for her to arrive. Looking forward to seeing this big girl room and glad you'll get to reuse all that cute stuff from Olivia. Thanks for the update :)

  3. Yay!!!!!!!!!! Well y'all are good at making girls so it is just perfect! The bond between sisters is such an amazing thing. You will get to experience the love between them two and it will melt your heart. Congrats!!!

  4. Congratulations! I love when you can reuse clothes and decor. It saves so much money, time and frustrations. I bet Olivia will be tickled pink ;) when she finally gets to meet her baby sis.

  5. Whew! I can finally rip the duct tape off my mouth!

  6. AHH GIRL! Congrats!! Sisters are the best- I'm so excited for Olivia! I think our #2 is another girl too- I love having a sister and I feel the same about reusing Lawter's clothes and girl stuff- we've got a few more weeks before we'll know though! (and I can't even think about nursery/room changes yet. ughhhh. you go mama!)

  7. What a fabulous surprise! I swore Gemma was a boy for months and was totally shocked she was a she. Olivia will do great. Can't wait to hear your name choices :)

  8. Another girl!!!! I'm so excited for your sweet family (especially Olivia)!!
