I was right..
Sugar and spice and everything nice, thats what little girls are made of..

Congratulations.. :)



I KNEW IT!!! Never had a doubt!


Oh, yay! A wee little girly! So happy for you both...

A girl!!! Congratulations!

Ugh, really? Sorry to hear that. You oughta see if you can get your money back.

If not, people from foreign countries will usually adopt them.

I freaked out on your husband's site, I'm a little embarrassed. BUT YAY, A GIRL. Now I guess I must start searching for the perfect baby girl gift! You're going to be a wonderful mother to a very fortunate daughter, Beth.

Hooray! For dresses, two words: Ralph Lauren. So, were you guys thinking a girl?

I'm hoping Patrick was kidding?
I'm actually kinda sorry I read Chris's site first...I like your way of telling us, though his entry was great too. Augh, I'm torn.

Congrats!!!! Now you get to buy pretty girl clothes!

Awwwww what a sweet way to tell us about your little wee one. I'm so excited for you and Chris. I'm listening to this song, just picturing the three of you dancing around the kitchen (((((cactus-fish family)))


YAY!!!! I am so happy for you guys Beth! A little girl! Awwwwwwww!


I'm so happy for both you and and Mr Cactus!!!

Now, you know we're all going to be eager to 'meet' her :)

Wonderful, indeed! Congratulations, mum and dad. :-)

*sniff* When I heard that song I shed a happy tear for you and your hubby and little miss lima bean. ;D

See? I knew it had to be a little girl when you said no morning sickness... only little boys give up that kinda noise. :)

Congratulations!!! Little girls are so much fun!

Bravo!!!! What a great way to tell us! Congratulations to you and Chris and hugs to baby Lima, too!

I can't hear the song, but judging from the comments, it's something about a little girl. Yay, yay and yay! You can teach her all about owning LOTS of handbags.

AH! I'm actually crying a little over here. Though I have a feeling I would done that no matter what flavor you got.
Happy! Happy!

Congrats you two!!

When she's born you gotta add a little pink fish to the title of this blog!

WOOT! Girls rule! Congrats!

Congratulations!!! I just KNEW it was a girl :)

Congratulations! :)

Girls are magic.

AWESOME! Congrats!! Little girls are so much fun. Little princesses.

Congratulations Beth!! Being a mommy to a little girl is so very very special!! (for boys too but since I only have 3 lil girls..yanno) Im so happy for you!!! OXOX


Girl clothes are so much cuter than boy clothes, too.

Congratulations!! A daughter! I am thrilled for you!

I just knew you would find another creative way to tell us! Woo hoo!

Yay!! I actually got a little choked up when the song started playing. Congratulations!!!!!!

well, i can't hear the song cuz i'm at work and it doesn't work, but i already know. EEK! :) Congrats, mommy! :D

That is just...awesome. Wait til you go shopping with PINK in mind (I'm sure you already have) Your song made me cry...stupid pregnant hormones!

YEAH! Congratulations!

Congrats! I am fairly new to reading your site. I actually heard it was a girl from your husband's site ( no speakers at work :() But I cant wait to hear what song you chose. Anyway congrats!!!!

Oh Beth! I'm sitting here with CHILLS! so so so so happy for you guys.

Wow, so it is a limA bean. I am so happy for you, I just knew it! I only want a little girl, shame on me I know, but they're so much fun. Good luck, and can't wait to see her! :)


Congratulations! Although I kind of feel bad for will never get out of the house on time again with hair, makeup, and trying on different outfits for both of you. :-)

Seriously, that's wonderful!!!

As a girl, I have to say that I never really tried on more than one outfit or did much with my hair.

I think, however, that if any girl had to have parents, having you and Chris, people who will allow her to be herself and encourage her to achieve and show her emotions and love...

Yeah, I'm glad I was right. :)

YAY a girl! Congratulations!

A girl! Congrats!

Congrats! And from a mom of THREE girls I can tell you that this will be the most fun you have ever had!!!!!!!

Yippeee!!!!!! A GIRL!!!!!!!!

I can't hear the song! Somebody tell me what the song is!

Congrats! Your little girl is sure to be gorgeous!

Congratulations! Y'all will have the cutest little girl ever.

Congrats! So exciting! Girls are sooo much fun (to dress!) :)

so, what do i win for guessing correctly?????

A girl! I knew it. Think of all the adorable little girl outfits you are going to buy :)

Much love to you girls are a hoot.

Yay! Congratulations. You are both going to be blown away by her.

So, since our heartbeats were the same, there is hope that I might be having a THIRD girl? I hope so...

Woohoo!!! Congrats :))

Awww that's just so precious! Congratulations on your little bruiser. :)

Yay for you and Chris! Now you get to buy all those cute baby girl outfits.

Congratulations!!! That's awesome! Be sure to get her a tiara because she will definitely be spoiled!

Prepare yourself for the pink!


WOW! I just came to your site for the first time today (as suggested to me by groovebunny) and I'm already in tears of joy for you!!! What a cute way to express the information for your readers! Congratulations!!!

i am crying you bastard!!!
that song gets me every-bloody-time.
girls are the total bestest.
my life is only all the better because of mine.
congratulations that is totally fantastic!
(ps: i chose boy because i was as sick as a nasty brown dog for the first 14 weeks with Sophie)

i'm a lousy guesser, but congrats anyway!

I really should know better, but I went to Chris's blog anyway... and got all verklempt and shit... and then I come in here and listen to that and even though I already knew it was a girl I'm tearing up anyway.

You bastards.


YAY! Girls rock!!! You will have so much more fun shopping for clothes for her. Just watch out for the attitude. It will be touching down in your home in approximately four years. You have been forewarned.

Now get thee to the nearest Gymboree!

Awesome. Now you can go crazy buying all those pretty clothes :)

Blessings to you and Chris... and of course the baby girl.
:-) will have so much fun with her! There is NOTHING like a baby girl. I'm so happy for you and Chris.

Congrats! Oh, a sweet little girl! I am sorry it's taken me so long to get around to commenting here, had a wedding to go to! Now that things are calm and I know what other sorts of items to pack in the box, I will be sending out the baby afghan as soon as possible! Full of little baby girl things to boot! I love shopping for girl stuff! :)
