a healthy baby...

You are dying to know if little Three here is a boy or girl, right?


First thing, she asked if we wanted to know the sex. I looked at my man sitting in the corner. His eyes secretly wishing I'd tell her yes - that we wanted to know. I considered it for half a second, but then looked away from the temptation and said it.

No.

I was strong. He was silent. We stuck to the plan.

That was that.


We proceeded to marvel at the 6 oz miracle in my womb. Fingers. Toes. Spine. A strong heart. Another beautiful creation. Another miracle.

Come October we'll all find out the sex. Together.

And if it happens to be a little boy - I'll be sending someone to the store.

You are CRAZY!!! Oh my gosh how can you not find out. You are strong. Very strong. Especially with two girls already. I'll be in your same boat (one day far in the future) and I could NEVER do that!

Cute baby though!

I still say boy....and now I have to wait forever!!

Candy said...

Oh Hayley I am so disappointed :( I wanted you to know so bad... so that I could know! I could never do that if I had a choice. COngrats on a healthy baby!

KC said...

tell Eric to get over it. It is going to be another girl, just face facts.

The Hyde Family said...

We are so happy for you! Just remember...no more man on man defense! You will soon be out numbered.

hays said...

yes. he claims that we are "specializing."

The Brown Family said...

ahhh....beautiful baby profile. I LOVE ultrasound pictures, they're so special! Whatever the gender, the baby will be soooo loved and lucky to be in your family!

smith scratch said...

Wow, how amazing the little guy is!
Yes, I think he is a boy, but I guess I will have to wait to see.
What an exciting surprise this will be!

Jenni said...

Being surprised is the best! Good for you!

I hope it's another girl. You've made some pretty gorgeous ones already. One more would be perfect!

Congrats on healthy baby. Love the surprise sex... Reese and Quincy were both a guessing game until delivery day, and I have to say, it was an excellent distraction for labor. I have no clue what I'm going to do to distract myself tomorrow!

October is a great month for a birthday!

While reading your post I was secretly hoping you said yes too! It is so awesome and patient of you to wait. I am happy for you that all is going well and that the baby and mommy are healthy!

Come October if it is a boy...someone will be throwing you a big shower!!!

The Crew said...

Way to be! Did you just love seeing the little person moving around inside you? That was part of my problem- I couldn't keep my eyes off that little body- and then before I knew it, I could see clearly what we were having! Next time though, I'm going to do it!

Mirabel's mom said...

Congratulations!!! I can't wait to find out :o)

Rachelle said...

oh hayley - that is so fun to make it a surprise!!!!

i can't wait to see what it is!

John and Shelly Hyde said...

You will love the surprise! It was so fun the night before we had Gold... it felt like a REAL christmas.

Sassy Christian Momma said...

Dude, You small break was full of photos. Loved it! Your girls are adorable, as always good luck with the ginger. IT's trumongeous! Great stuff you have growing and you will probably never be a morning person. Brandon isn't either! It's okay- i say ditch the robe and sleep in if that floats your boat!

Sally said...

You're so much stonger than me! Still it will be so exciting! Hey I'll go to the store for you if you need if baby is a boy!

nicwoo said...

Funny how you're throwing caution to the wind by not finding out, any more- no one's even thinking twice about it!-
But in all hypocrisy I will definitely say that I will always find out.
I like to Mentally Prepare and Swoon that way.
And then again, you Gardiners have made an Exciting decision, for sure!!
*SWEETEST CONGRATS ON YOUR DARLING, HEALTHY NEW FAMILY MEMBER*

I think she looks like Ava.

Andelin said...

Aw man! I wanted to hear! Bummer! ...my guess is boy.

P.S. See, I don't get it though. Isn't it still a surprise? It's just at 20 weeks instead of 40.
