Long before I knew Kyle, he dreamed of naming his children Vector and Velocity (male and female, respectively). We compromised by deciding to use those as fetus names. Now, for months we have had long lists of our favorite boy names. Family has bought us little boy shoes and outfits occasionally. I only consider little boy nursery themes. We referred to Morgi as a "he" in everyday conversation, even on this blog. I WAS SO SURE. I've been expecting to make the transfer to "Vector" any day now. Maybe not today, because we certainly wouldn't be able to find out today, but probably in a month.
Instead, we will be calling her Velocity! And we could NOT be more surprised. It probably still hasn't fully sunk in yet for either Kyle or me. We are really excited though--I just need to start thinking of myself as someone who will have a daughter--that seems totally unreal! It makes sense though, Andersons and Vaughns have daughters. IT'S WHAT WE DO. I think everyone thought that it was about time our families were due for a boy, but I guess we were wrong.
Oh, and normally it's hard to tell at 16 weeks, but apparently our little Velocity is not shy. Our technician laughed at how clearly female she is--as if Velocity really adamantly wanted us to stop referring to her as male. She is a really wiggly little baby as well, I guess in a couple weeks I'll start feeling it!
