I am SO in love.
I seriously thought our first baby was going to be a boy. I was so set on that thought that even while the ultrasound tech showed us the proof of a girl, I still sat there waiting for her to find a little extra something that a girl wouldn't be carrying.... but nope! :D It doesn't mean I didn't want a girl, on the contrary...I'm so freakin excited to dress her up in cute little outfits (bought her first one the day after finding out) and outnumber her daddy.
The 3 1/2 months leading up to knowing about my baby girl, I'd ask my J boy every so often about what he really wanted. He would ALWAYS respond with, "Whatever the Lord blesses us with". Though I love his perspective and comment...I wanted to know what he really truly wanted...never got a straight answer. ugh..
Until the night after the ultrasound.
As we sat in bed, smiles as wide as could be, thinking of our little lady growing in my belly, I looked at Jamison and whispered, "You wanted a girl, didn't you?" His eyes looked off and he stared at the wall for a moment, then whispered back with a smile that will always melt my heart, "yes." :) We are still finding ourselves smiling to ourselves in complete happiness, a week later.
Now's the waiting game. I hit 17 weeks tomorrow, so I still have about 5 months left (or more if I'm like my mother who had all her babies at 10 months...I'm praying NOW that that's not my fate). I can picture dressing my baby in adorable purples and pinks and ribbons and lace, but it kills me to not be able to see her little face yet!
She's due to arrive October 29th, and as I am NOT a fan of Halloween, I am also praying that she will come on an entirely different week, so we don't have to associate her birthday with that holiday at all. yucky!
I think I've rambled enough. I'm doing great now that my morning (all day) sickness continues to fade with each day, and am loving this cool weather and dreading the upcoming blistering summer days. My sweet Jamison talks to my belly every single day. He sings her to sleep at night, which actually really does calm her, and allows me to rest without her kicks hurting me. He tells her about how beautiful it is outside, asks her questions about her opinion on things, etc. He pretty much talks to my belly all the time now, which I will never stop loving!
She listens to him, and every time without fail has done as he has asked her to do..so i'm positive she's going to be such a fan of her daddy when she joins us in the fall. She will be daddy's girl all the way. And I LOVE it. :)
Here she is at her 10 week ultrasound. She looooves to cover her face with her hands!
My munchkin at 15 weeks (can you see her brain and heart? CUTE!)
Sucking her thumb! My heart is melting...
Here is a 3D of her. Putting her hands to her face again. :)
Here is the belly at 5 weeks. ( I miss those skinny days. I thought I was chubby then...boy was I wrong!!!)
Couldn't get this picture turned right. But here's the belly today, 1 day shy of 17 weeks.
Excited to have my baby girl!!!! :)
