It's a GIRL!

Could not wait to post the story.

Christy and Troy wanted to take us to a Chinese restaurant. When the meal was done the hostess brought our fortune cookies. Our sweet DIL opened hers first.

She said "Christy, I think this must be for you. Bonnie, what does yours say?"

"Mine says 'It's a girl' too. It's fate! It's got to be a girl!"

Troy said, "It is! It's a girl."

WHAT!  I screamed!!! You have got to get kidding.  I was jumping up and down!

Because of IVF we knew early when they were expecting. To have the joy and element of surprise Christy and Troy decided to learn early the sex of the baby and share with family. Troy is very creative about special events. He thought of the fortune cookie idea and ordered on line. He arrived early and asked the girls to bring out the cookies. The girls at the restaurant were excited too. We were all crying and laughing.

Since Troy's parents were coming through the night before they ate Chinese two nights in a row and were able to have two nights of celebration.                        

We had ice cream later. I shared the news on Facebook this way.
It's PINK!
