Mila Juliet surprised us all when she arrived at 1.37am 16.12.12 weighing 7lb15oz.

We were told we were expecting boy #3, who was to be called Myles Julian (thw whole similar name/initials thing was a coincidence lol)

She's such an easy baby! Especially compared to her big brothers. We all adore her and feel so blessed.

Congratulations - a similar thing happened to a friend - she was expecting Boy #4 when Girl #1 showed up - she couldn't believe how much PINK existed in the world (and entered her home in a week)!!!

Love the name - enjoy your girl.

Hehe, same thing happened to us. We were told we were having DS2 and out popped a girl. It was lucky DH was sitting down because he seriously almost fell off his chair.

Congratulations on your bundle of pink.

What a lovely surprise and I love how you have just feminised the expected boy name.  It is really beautiful. I always said I would be happy with just boys but I do love having a girl as well.

Funny you mention that, we didn't even realise what we'd done for a week or two lol the boys both have J MN's (which wasn't planned) & begged for #3 to have one too. Hahaha

Thanks again. I can't believe the clothes & accessories for pink ones.
