It's a...

GIRL!!

James and I are really excited. Hunter on the other hand - well I'll let you be the judge. Here's the conversation I attempted to have with him when I picked him up from school today...

Me: Hunter! You're going to have a baby sister! Baby Charlotte is in mommy's tummy!
Hunter: shakes his head no with this look on his face...
Me: Hunter, aren't you excited to have a baby sister?
Hunter: uh-uh....banana
Me: You can have a banana when we get home. Can you say Charlotte?
Hunter: no!
Me: Baby Charlotte is in mommy's tummy. Say Charlotte.
Hunter: uh-uh...banana

That's when I finally decided to give up on the dream. I actually did get him to attempt to say Charlotte later. It came out as "shot". At least we've got time to work on the pronunciation...and Hunter's love for his sister.
