About the name...

We've already had several people ask us if we have a name picked out yet. So, I thought I'd talk about it here.

We do not, 100%, have a name picked out. And, if we did, we aren't telling! A few months ago, Alex and I had "the talk". Do we find out the sex of our baby? He didn't want to at first because he wanted to be surprised. I wanted to know because I am a planner. After much discussion, we decided to find out for the first baby and be surprised the next time. We also decided that we wanted to keep the baby's name private until she was born. There are several reasons...

  • We've already told the world we're having a girl, we'd like the name to be a surprise.
  • We still have a LOT of time to figure out a's such a huge decision, picking a name she'll have for the rest of her life, we don't want to rush it.
  • We might change our minds a few times...I'd had a girl's name in mind for about the past 5 years, but now I don't like it. We don't want to tell everyone one name, and then decide to change it later.

And the best reason (one we'll probably say a LOT to our child(ren) over the next few years) is:


So please don't take it personally if we don't tell you the name, we're not telling ANYONE! I can assure you that we won't pick out a weird name, we're not crazy. Alex & I are too "normal" to name our child "Fallulah" or "Posey" or anything like that.

It's a...



Our appointment today was AMAZING! She was really active and not shy at all. The very first picture shows the girl-parts (they're circled). She loves her hands and we saw them in almost every picture. We saw her rub her eyes, make kissy-faces, and yawn! So cute!

I can't believe how much you can see in these ultrasounds. We were able to see her brain, heart, stomach, spine, and all her arms and legs. She looks good and seems healthy. She kept flip-flopping around in there, so we've got a gymnast on our hands!

Alex & I are thrilled! And it looks like my gender-prediction was right again.

Yesterday was my first Mother's Day. It was quite memorable. Our electricity went out at 6 am!!! It didn't come back on until about 2:30. My dad and Alex made me and my mom yummy breakfast, and then we opened cards and presents. My mom made me a beautiful bracelet with the baby's birthstone. Alex gave me a (much-needed) spa day for today. It was awesome! I got a pre-natal massage, a facial, and a mani/pedi. I definitely feel pampered. Overall, it was a great day!

So, enjoy the pictures of our BABY GIRL!!!
