    Baby Number Two: Pink, or Blue?

    Happy April 1st! But this actually isn’t a joke. We’re having a girl, and I totally knew it! I’m SO excited.

To warn you, y’all might not find out till Wednesday, since we’re having a gender reveal party with family tomorrow. Mr. Owl can’t come with me to the ultrasound, so I’ll have them write it in a card or on a piece of paper, then we’ll read the verdict together when he gets home tonight. But tell me your guess in the comments, and we’ll finally find out whether…
