Boy or Girl?

Ginger 17 weeks (3)

Although you cant really see anything, I'm sure you can read...
No Pee Pee!
or, no penis, rather.
ITS A GIRL!

We are really loving the name GINGER.
I hesitated posting that on our blog
but what the heck.
If you hate the name, maybe it will grow on you.
If you love the name, fabulous.

I really love referring to her as Ginger.
In my case, it helped me bond with her more.
It just made this experience that much more REAL.
Of course, its real but it can feel surreal.
We give ourselves permission to change our mind on the name
if she pops out and it doesnt seem to 'fit' her.

So there you go. Big News for The Treeses.
A Baby Girl named Ginger.

Alexis, that awesome! I like the name Ginger. It's kind of old school, which I like.

I'm sure she will be the best dressed baby around.

hello, my name is amber. said...

aahhhh! you totally called it being a girl!

ginger? not gonna lie... i wouldn't necessarily pick it for my own child, but it's like clothes: when i see someone wearing something and i'm like wow that's' really cute, i would never have picked that to wear [or had the guts to] - and then i try it on + i'm in love with it, cause someone else picked it out.

it's practically the same thing.
so what i'm saying is, i need you to dress me + name my next child.

when we're old and fartsy, i hope you let me tell her stories about all of our adventures in your ghetto mobile + i would love to pass along the greatness that my mom taught us: vertical! not horizontal! [good times]

you should proobably start that lesson in the womb, the way the world is today! i think i need to have the 'sex' talk with taylor ANY DAY. frickin' frack.

Alexis and Casey Treese said...

Oh my gosh Amber!! My hormones are out of control because I teared up reading your comment. I totally love you and totally cherish all of our memories. The Ghetto Mobile...AahhhhhhhHAHAHAHA! Remember that damn horn!!! As for that sex talk...freakin frack is right. I dont even want to think about that.Maybe you can record your 'talk' with Taylor and I'll play it for Ginger. Shoot we should just have your mom do it for both kids. She sure scared the crap out of me.:) Love you!

Daniel & Aubri said...

YAY!!!! How exciting! I LOVE the name Ginger! Congrats to both of you, that is just the most exciting thing ever!

Victoria Elder said...

Congrats! It's such an emotional time finding out what your baby sex is! Ginger, Ah I am pretty sure I like it, actually I think I LOVE it!

Riot Grrrl said...

Are you sure it's a girl? Maybe it just inherited Casey's genes in the "penis size" area.
ZING!
I love the name Ginger. You should have a whole "Gilligan's Island" theme and name all your kids after characters from the show.

Alexis and Casey Treese said...

Freak Adam, I knew someone would bring up the "Gilligan's Island" thing. But maybe youre onto something. If we have boy one day we could name him Skipper.

The Swan's said...

ahh so fun finding out the sex of the baby..i so hope we have a girl next! i think everyone needs one girl int he mix to play barbies with lol anyways congrats!

Jessica (Romo) Rogone said...

OMG!!! I'm due March 5th! I can't believe that! I mean what are the chances that we're both pregnant and due only a day apart from eachother?!? I'm having a boy and you a girl! I am soooo excited & happy for you too!

I was originally due Feb 25th but after the first ultrasound at 9 weeks they changed it to March 5th! I just realized I forgot to change the date on myspace.

I actually thought I was having a girl, I thought I totally knew. But when we had our ultrasound I found out I was wrong. I didn't care either way, my hubby is from a family of 5 boys and his brother just had a boy so he swore that his side of the family only produced men. So I guess I was hoping for a girl a little bit because I wanted to prove him wrong but he was totally right!

We should exchange numbers and chat, I think this is awesome!! YAY for babies!

Whitney R said...

YEAH! A GIRL! That's great! And I totally said girl before I even saw the no pee pee. I think I could be an ultrasound tech! Or not.


This is great. My brother and his wife find out what theirs is tomorrow. Your due dates are very close.

Ginger? Not quite sure what I think about it...

Aaron & Lindzi said...

WOW! We are so happy for you guys. LOVE Ginger! Can't wait to see you guys again. It's been way too long. We get the internet installed in our house today so I will be able to blog more soon! YAY. I love your posts and being able to keep in touch better.

Ashley said...

YAAAY! A GIRL!! That is great Ali!! Oh I can just picture her now...ginger...love it...she will be the most fashionable baby girl alive! hmmm... im thinking we need to have a shopping event for this...baby girl clothes are the funnest!! :)

Whitney R said...

been thinking about it today and I think I'd like Ginger. As long as she's as cute as you (as I'm sure she will be) then she can pull off any name!

Lindzie said...

Hey Alexis, so at first I didn't recognize you on Facebook...you look great! Congrats on your pregancy! And somehow I know your husband...but I can't remember where from. He probably doesn't even know me, which makes me sound crazy. Anyways, i have a blog too...but I have to make it private. If you want to be added, let me know. lfavshorty@gamil.com

ABBOTTLAND said...

Congratulations! I was hoping you would be having a girl. I think Ginger is awesome and you don't hear it much nowadays. Now you can really plan for her and go crazy shopping :)

The Swan's said...

SO when is your due date?? logan was born on march 5 crazy.huh..=)

Alexis and Casey Treese said...

My due date is March 6! How was it having a march baby. It feels like I got pregnant at the best time of the year.

Luke, Nicole, and Brighten said...

A girl...Camryn, Brighten, London, and Ginger!!! I really like it, one of my friends sisters name is Ginger. I like it because, it is unique yet every one can read/say it, and most people know atleast one Ginger. We had Brighten picked out early also. I loved being able to call her by name and tell my mom that I bought something for "Brighten" instead of just "my baby". I could never go to the hospital with out a "main" name picked out. There is too much stress involved with everything else. I also thought that when naming a girl that it needed to be a name that could stand on its own as a brand. Such as, her dress is a "Brighen Kaoni" or her bag is a "Ginger Treese". Do you think that I am nuts? I also thought that a boy need to be able to run for President with his name. But, I guess now with Barack Obama I could name him anything. By the way, I'm curious who you are voting for...you seem kinda like an Obama girl. Love ya tons!!!!

Alexis and Casey Treese said...

Oh my gosh Nicole!! I totally had that in mind when I picked Ginger's name. I pictured her having a fashion line and it being called "Ginger Estelle" (That's the middle name I like- it's a family name). Here's what I pictured... Place: The Oscars Red Carpet... "Who are you wearing?" Famous celebrity: "Ginger Estelle"
"Well, you look fabulous." I thought I was the only weirdo who imagined things like that... I guess that's why were besties. Love ya.

Corynn said...

Congrats! I can't picture you having a boy first. A girl just fits you. I loved Amber's comments. I hope she can have great experiences with her best friends like we all have had with you. I can't wait for you to have her. And so close to my Birthday. That really is the best time to have a baby.

The Dynamic Trio said...

AHHHHHH!!!! COngrats!! Girls are so incredibly fun! seriously. And Ginger...i love it. At first i was like "whoa...a little strange" but after thinking about it i think its precious! :) Im so happy for you

The Robertson Clan said...
