Sonogram Results are in...




Many of you have been anxiously awaiting the news from our sonogram we had this morning. Of course, we wanted to tell our families first, so we decided to hold off on breaking the big news on our blog until then. Dave's family is out of town, so we broke the news to them by phone this morning. My family (the Roy family) celebrated Christmas together this afternoon at my parents' home in St. Augustine. Before digging in to our family-style Italian dinner, I let Charlie open one gift in front of everyone. His present was a little baby doll, swaddled in a PINK, YES, I SAID PINK BLANKET!!! Everyone cheered and celebrated finding out that Charlie is going to have a little sister, Katherine Elizabeth. Charlie didn't really understand what all the big hooplah was about...in fact, he looked at the baby doll and made a face...quite funny! Of course, Dave and I are thrilled with the news and even more thrilled that she looked and measured healthy today during the sonogram. Our little modest baby girl didn't want us to know she was a girl at first, as she kept her legs closed tight and held one hand over her private area! After some convincing by the the sonogram tech., she gave in and gave us a glimpse. What a wonderful gift on Christmas Eve. We are so blessed!

Abigail and I cried tears of joy whe we read your email announcing Katherine Elizabeth! Abigail prays on a daily basis for "Baby Conte" to grow healthy and strong. Our faithful God is answering those prayers. Abigail is thrilled to have a specific name to include in her daily prayers now. BTW - Abigail wanted me to add that she misses you very much and would love to get together sometime. I think that would be a great idea, too! Congratulations and you will continue to be in our daily prayers.

Love,
Kathy Jo and Abigail Ayers
