It's a ....

Pin It!

GIRL!!!!!! 

We could NOT be anymore thrilled! From the very beginning, Brandon and I have both had the strongest feeling that it was a girl. I just couldn't picture anything else. We had an elective ultrasound at 14 weeks, 5 days and they confirmed it was a girl, but I knew it was still early so I wanted to wait until my 18 week ultrasound to confirm. The sweet words, "well, she's definitely a little girl" were like music to my ears. It's weird how knowing the sex makes the baby more real. I felt closer instantly just being able to refer to her as a her, and not an it.

I finally got to splurge at Target and pick up all of the cute baby girl outfits I'd been eyeing. Oh my goodness, all of the little summer dresses and rompers and sandals are killing me! I can't wait to see her chubby little thighs peeping out the bottom. Both of the ultrasound techs mentioned that she already has long legs, which makes this stubby legged mama very happy :-)
Little legs with her ankles crossed :-)
Her little 3D face head on. She's smooshed there directly in the middle. Can you see her? I think her little nose looks like Cindy Lou Who from Whoville :-)
The best news of all is that she is perfectly healthy! I was so nervous going in for the appointment because they check everything. Brain development, the four chambers of the heart, the spine, the kidneys, the bladder, the bone development, the nasal bone. Everything looked great :-)

In good/bad news, I start my very last class of my Master's program on Wednesday. I'm so excited that it's my last one, but so burned out already that I don't know how I'll finish. I need to summon energy from somewhere, but after working all day the only thing I want to do is pin baby stuff haha. For this last class I have to put together a portfolio of all of my papers and projects and demonstrate to my advisor that I have met all of the objectives of the Master's program. Wish me luck! I will need all I can get.
