Growing up

Sometimes I think my kids are growing up before my eyes. Hannah especially. These last 6 months she has changed so much. Here's a picture from every month starting in July all the way through December. She's had a major growth spurt and her face in really filling out. She looks so grown up. I guess I'm being a little nostalgic since I'll be having another little girl before I know it.

It's a GIRL!

I still can't believe it but we're going to have another baby girl! I've thought it was a boy since the beginning. Although the last few weeks every dream or other random thought I had the baby was a girl. I guess the Chinese calender was right with this one! The ultrasound was so much fun. I loved seeing her moving around. The 3D/4D was amazing although some of the pictures seem pretty blurry. Maybe because she was moving around so much. We have so many pictures though it was easy to find a few good ones. We even got a disk with all the pictures and a DVD! I've already watched the DVD three times! I can't wait to go back again at 30 weeks. Now it's time to start picking out all the fun baby stuff. We already bought her some clothes!

13 Days!

Less than two weeks away from our 3D ultrasound! I can not wait to find out what this baby is. I'm still thinking it is a boy, although the Chinese lunar calendar says the baby is a girl. So I checked the calendar to see if it accurately predicted the sex of Hannah and Micah and it was 50/50. Correct with Hannah and incorrect with Micah. So I guess we're 50/50...big surprise. The baby has been moving around more...especially today. I put Hannah's hand on my belly but of course he/she stopped then. I don't think she could have felt it anyway but I can tell the kicks are getting stronger. Here's my 16 week belly shot.

Baby Kicks

Well I didn't have to wait long for those little flutters. One day after my last post I felt them. It was so exciting I almost started crying. This is the best part of pregnancy. I'm going to try to enjoy every minute of it. Since Sunday I've only felt the baby a few more's so early I have to be sitting absolutely still to feel it. I can't wait for Hannah to be able to feel, she's so excited.

Also I made the appointment for the 3D ultrasound. We will know what this little one is on December 27th! Hopefully he/she cooperates. I can't wait to see him/her. The last ultrasound was at 8 weeks and you couldn't see anything. I'll be 18 weeks at the appointment so it will be perfect. I think I convinced Philip to let me have two of the 3D ultrasounds so I'll go back for another one around 30 weeks so we can get some better profile shots. I can't wait!
