That's what little girls are made of

Katherine Sarah Scott will be joining our family in January. Katie, as we're already calling her. Maggie has come around to it being a girl. I told my little diva that sisters can wear matching dresses. Told her we would go shopping for clothes for her. Then, I busted out the big guns.

She has a choice--Katie can get the guestroom and have a brand new room OR Maggie can give Katie her bedroom and she can have her very own BRAND!NEW!BIG!SISTER!ROOM! Yeah, that worked. Now, she is happy about having a little sister. She is talking to my belly, "Hi Katie!!" everyday. She giggles that Daddy is the only boy in our family, including even the dog. Yesterday, we went to Six Flags for a fun family day. As we were walking in the front entrance, Maggie turns to my belly and yells, "KATIE!! We're at Six Flags--it's your very first time to come to Six Flags!!"

To answer the question I'm getting all the time--Andrew is THRILLED to be having a third daughter. He was so excited when "I'm a Girl" was typed across the screen during the ultrasound. He loves his girls so much. Let me tell you what--they worship that man. My girls are in love with their daddy.

We are so excited about our newest additon to the family. 19 weeks and counting!

Congrats again! LOVE the name, so beautiful. I know you guys will enjoy your little Katie as much as we enjoy our little Katy!

I'm so happy for you guys! Beautiful name choice... We just had a baby girl and couldn't decide between Katherine or Caroline. We went with Caroline, but it was close...

Beautiful girls... beautiful names!

Karen said...

Love the name. My younger daughter's middle name is Katherine. Glad to hear that Maggie is now excited about her little sister. She's going to love having a little sister around.

I love that name. We almost nameed each of our girls Kate. Maggie is going to LOVE having a baby sister!

Ness said...

Beautiful name. I can't remember for the life of me Maggie's middle name. Please put me out of my misery and fill in the blank for Margaret _______ Scott. What a wonderful selling point of a new sister to get your own brand new room. Maggie, you scored! Take care, Jenny. I've been following you since Allie began her journey.

Awwww I love the name - I have my own Katie who just turned 14 (Kaitlyn) and I love her name just as much as the day I named her. Sisters are irreplaceable - I have 2 and would be lost without them. Congratulations!!

Adrianne said...

How exciting! I can't wait to meet miss Katie!!!

Myshel said...

I love the name as well.. My Kathryn (Katey) is turning 13 tomorrow. I just love the name to pieces. We call her Katey, Katey-bug, even Kit-Kat. She started going by Kathryn with her friends though. She said nobody called her Kathryn and if she didnt start going by it, she never would.

I love, love, love it.
I am so happy for you, and I am so happy that Maggie came around. I am sure they will grow up to be the best of friends.

Much love to you and your family.
Shel

Congratulations Jenny, Andrew & Maggie - Katie is a very lucky little girl to be part of such a great family.

Long time lurker coming to say congratulations. Love, love, love the name. Sarah and Katherine were both in the running for our baby girl, Charlotte, born in June. This post brought tears to my eyes. Baby girls are so very special. Congratulations.

Sarah said...

So excited for you! Plus I'm quite partial to the name Sarah, so that's nice too! :-)

Congrats! And welcome to the 3 girls club! We know probably 10 different family friends of ours who have 3 girls, ourselves included. It is wonderful! Although we just had to step out of that elite club, because in January we had our 4th child, a boy! So congrats, it is a fabulous and frilly and fun, and the best part is dressing them alike for pictures!

I'm just sayin' said...

Congrats! So very happy for you! I love them name too....classic & beautiful! I am having a girl in October- so excited to be joining "team pink." Thinking of you during this month.....

Esther said...

Congrats Jenny! Love the name. Please let me know if you need any help decorating Maggie's big sister room! I need real world pictures for my portfolio so I am free of charge ;)

~~Mel~~ said...

Congrats again!

I love the name you've chosen...and I'm so glad that Miss Maggie has come around and is excited about having a baby sister.

Half way there!

Kat said...

Congrats to all the Scotts! How wonderful to be adding a sweet cuddly baby girl to your family! Your girls have the most beautiful names; I love the nicknames "-ie" and how great they all sound together. Katie will be one loved little girl!

Elonda said...

Sisters are so fun. I would be lost without mine. I have 2 daughters. They were dressed a like when they were younger or sometimes coordinating colors as per the oldest ones request. SO much fun. They are definitely daddy's girls and he loves every minutes of it. So excited for you.

Bethany said...

What a beautiful name- I'm glad Maggie is getting excited! :)

Dear Aunt Jenny, Hello, from your niece Jessie!!! I just seen your picture of your new baby in your tummy. Mom tells me in 19 weeks that she will be born.I hope to meet Maggie and Baby Katie some day. Tell my Grandma Sharon and Uncle Jeremy and Aunt Debbie , Hello for me !!!! Love Jessie D Humphrey

Mary Anne Whiteley said...

My oldest is named Sarah Katherine. One bit of warning, it's a name you will always spell. At least your last name is easy! Sarah with an h, Katherine with a K and an ine at the end, and we even get to spell the last name!

I've been following you since Allie was diagnosed....God must be giving you girls for a reason! Enjoy your girls. My two girls are almost 6 years apart. It's a love/hate relationship every day!
