What a Week!!!
This has been one eventful week! We had our 20 week sonogram and found out the sex of the baby!!!!! And to top off all the excitement, I felt the baby fluttering around for the first time this morning!!!!!
Soooooo....... We're having a GIRL!!!!!
Kyle's dad and stepmom happened to plan a visit over this weekend and it worked out perfectly that it was the same day we were having our sonogram. We went Monday to the hospital and got to watch our Little Miss for a good thirty minutes while the technician got all the little measurements of our perfect little one! Everything looks great and she (I'm still getting used to saying that instead of it!) is developing right on track! She's right at 10 ounces and about 6 1/2 inches long from head to booty! We got lots of great pics of her, however, she was being a bit stubborn and wouldn't let the tech get the right angles to measure her heart, so we get to go back next week and do another sonogram! :)
We wanted to find a more fun way to find out if we were having a girl or a boy, so we decided to have the tech right down what we were having and seal it in an envelope.
We then took it down to Babycakes, my favorite bakery which happens to also have the perfect name for this particular occasion, in a super fun silver BMW Kyle rented for a few hours to surprise me. He wanted to make every aspect of the day special and I thought it was so sweet, and a ton of fun to cruise around NYC in a fun car! We had the girl at the shop open the envelope and ice some cupcakes pink or blue, whichever fit the bill, and wrap them up so we wouldn't be tempted to peek! The girl at the shop was so excited to get to do this for us! It was pretty sweet how into it she got!
So cute how the girl at the shop wrote this on the cupcake box :)
We then cruised back home and set up the computer to Skype my parents in. I wanted to share the special moment with them too. (Thank God for technology!) Once we got it all set up, we counted to three and opened the lid, to find PINK cupcakes!!!!!! AHHH! A little girl!!!! We were both a bit shocked as EVERYONE thought we were having a boy! But oh so excited! It definitely makes it seem much more real for some reason, now that we know that we have a Little Miss on the way. And now to start planning the nursery and getting to register and SHOP!!!! :)
(Getting the computer all set up)
Now it's back on the name hunt. We had several names picked for a boy but only had one that we are liking for a girl. However, we aren't 100% about it... Hmmm, looks like we might be spending some time in Barnes and Noble's cafe, thumbing through some books!
It's so crazy to think we are halfway through our pregnancy now! Only 20 weeks to go and we will get to meet her!!!
Here's her precious little profile. Look at that little button nose!
Here's a full side body shot. Her little legs curled up are oh so cute!
And a little tiny foot! Ps: We counted, she has ten fingers and ten toes!
Thanks to Pops and Grandma Susan, she has a super cute little hippie outfit, already a trendy little gal :)
Then, this morning as I was laying on my tummy (for probably one of the last few times that I should) I could feel her wiggling all around! It was the first time I've felt her, and even though it wasn't an actual "kick" I could feel, it was definitely her! I think she was trying to tell me good morning. :)
