!!!!!

Our little baby must have been bashful today because he/she kept it's little legs crossed during the entire ultrasound and we could not get a very clear image of the gender! BUT, from what the Dr. and the technician saw they are 90% sure that it is a girl!!!!!! I will go back in a few weeks to get another ultrasound to confirm the gender.
This was by far the best appointment EVER. The baby looked like an actual little person with two legs, two arms and little fingers and toes. We saw every view of our child...the spine, bottom, feet , hands, stomach, legs, arms, the face with it's eyes, nose, chin, ears, and mouth, and even a glimpse of some of the organs! What a healthy growing baby! It was amazing. Bo and I could not wipe the smile and giggles off of our faces...it made it all so real.
The baby was sooooo cute. At first it had the hiccups and we could not stop laughing, so adorable. And then the baby was just stretching its little arms and legs all over the place. The baby covered it's face with it's arm at one point and then began sucking it's thumb. I'm in heaven and soooo in love. I can't wait to meet this perfect little angel.
Probably one of my favorite moments today was just seeing Bo's reaction to our baby on the screen. He literally was smiling the entire time and just had a mesmerizing expression on his face. His eyes looked like he had just fallen in love again. It made my heart melt.

Caught in action. My baby Mac sleeping on the sofa that is supposed to be off limits to four legged animals. He was so cute and peaceful!

week 16

lazy dayzzzz.

I absolutely LOVE after I've worked my 12 hour shifts to wake up to my day off, get up, make myself some scrambled eggs and toast and have a cup of "decafed" coffee. So nice. I can just lay around in my sweats and relax. I guess I should soak up this time as much as possible and enjoy it, lol. Can I just say how great I've been feeling!! I jinxed myself last time I said that I was over the sickness because a week later I was hanging over the toilet...again. But now that i'm into my second trimester and have been feeling great for the last few weeks besides the minor headaches I think it's safe to say that it is over. I'm axiously waiting to feel the so called fluttering in my belly from the baby but I think I'm just feeling gas intstead or my belly rumbling because it's hungry..again. I'll be 17 weeks in a few days! I find out the sex in about a week or so. Dec 30th! We already have names picked out....if it's a girl: AVA GRACE....if it's a boy: HENRY COLEMAN. I love these names. our boy name is after my grandfather that passed away and coleman is Bo's middle name. The girl name is just something that we came up with ourselves. It's so feminine and has and old hollywood glamour sound to it. So beautiful.

Bo has been so calm through everything. I ask him every so often.."Are you nervous about being parents?" And of course he is always so cool and confident and say's "no, we will be great parents and you are going to be an amazing mom." It is a little scary to me to be honest. This tiny little person that I have so much love for already is our responsibilty forever. Everything runs through my mind about parenthood and the different possibilities that we could encounter. I know that I will be a good mother and that we are going to do great but it's still a little scary. So sureal. I think it is mostly my pregnancy hormones and the emotional ride that i've been experiencing. I think a mother can be overly emotional about her pregnancy especially the first time because she is carrying this little person and feels a greater weight of responsiblilty and protection. I have an amazing support system and am so lucky to have an amazing husband who will be there every step of the way.

We had a great time in Mtn.home last weekend and it was so good to see everyone! I'm anxious to go back. It's so beautiful there and my dad's house is like out of a magazine, sitting on top of a mountain with spectacular views of the lake. We are traveling to Tulsa next week to spend about 4days with my mom, stepdad and my sisters and brothers. I can't wait! I am so lucky to have the family that I have.

Thankful.

Hooray! I had my second baby appointment today and everything is going smoothly and the baby is doing great (big sigh). I'm just a few days shy of being 15 weeks! Time really does fly when your pregnant. It's hard to believe that the baby will be here in less than 6months. My next visit in 4weeks will be amazing because we are finding out the sex. I also can't wait to see how much the little sweet pea has grown! It is such a miracle.
Bo and I are doing great and patiently waiting for the holiday's so we can see our family! We miss everyone so much.
