It's the Simple Things

  • starting and finishing a book in one day
  • Haagen-Daz chocolate peanut butter ice cream mini cups
  • painting the baby's room PINK
  • staying up late talking, then...
  • making Derek go downstairs to get me Oreos and milk at midnight and eating them together
  • feeling the baby kick constantly!

Yeah, I'm pretty happy right now!

Meet Our Little Girl

Here is a picture of her little face. She's looking right at the camera, smiling and saying "cheese!"

And her little profile! Crunched up in a little ball! What a sweetheart!

IT'S A....


It's a girl, it's a girl, it's a girl!

So much for "mother's intuition" because I thought it was a boy the WHOLE time! I mean, we've been calling her "Eggbert" for the last several weeks! I guess we'll just have to call her Eggbertha from now on and I'll have to apologize profusely when she's born!

There's something about knowing the gender that makes it so much more real! I can picture January so much easier now. I can finally start thinking about what to do with her little nursery! I can buy things with a little baby girl in mind. And we can start thinking of some names!

I'm excited! Can you tell?

Little Baby

Apparently, my body has decided to start giving me morning sickness in my second trimester. I was perfectly fine all 18 weeks up until this week. Now, every morning, off I go to the bathroom! Now, this isn't that big of a problem because I craved for morning sickness the 2 years we were trying to have this little baby and I promised God that I wouldn't complain when I did get pregnant. The only issue is that today we were supposed to find out what gender our baby is. And because of the nature of my morning sickness...uh hum...I couldn't have a full bladder and therefore they weren't able to get any good pictures of little baby. In fact, baby was really hard to see. We were able to get some pictures of the spine, feet, legs, arms and a cute profile, but no gender shot.

We go back in tomorrow at 10:45. Hopefully I'll have gotten it out of my system so I can get all bladdered up to see this little rascal properly!
