6 Months!


IMG_0457 6 Months!

In an effort to catch up, here is my 6 month belly shot.  It’s hard for me to imagine getting any bigger, but I know it’s going to happen and it’s for the best.  I can feel my little girl moving around a lot now.  She especially likes to “dance” when I lay down to go to sleep.  I hope that’s not a sign of things to come! 

Michael and I have been really busy preparing for our baby girl.  We ordered the nursery furniture and all of the pieces should be in by the end of June.  Meanwhile, the bedding arrived last week and we are looking for the perfect paint colors for the nursery walls.  This is the last “blank canvas” room in our house, so I think Michael is ready to get started. 

As soon as the nursery is complete, I’ll post some before and after shots!

5 Months!

Well folks…the baby bump has officially arrived!  It seemed appropriate to wear this pink tank top that says “Coming Soon” since we know we are having a girl now (a HUGE thank you to Amanda for letting me borrow it).  I’ve been doing some traveling for work and was out of town for a few weeks, so this is more of a 5 and a half month belly shot.

It’s a Girl!

It’s a girl!

Michael and I found out at our 20 weeks appointment that we are expecting a baby girl in August!  We are both very excited by this news.  I had a feeling since the very beginning that it would be a girl, so to have confirmation was a blessing.  It also meant I could start buying things and getting the nursery in order!  We are at a loss for names right now, but hopefully we will come up with something before she arrives.  This will be the first grandbaby on my side of the family, and the 3rd grandbaby (and 3rd granddaughter) on Michael’s side of the family.

I apologize for the sonogram picture not being very clear…it was the best one out of the two pictures we received.  Hopefully I’ll have another sonogram soon and everyone can see how cute her little profile is!
