It's a GIRL!!!

Here she is, Baby Girl Morris at 16 weeks. Isn't it just so amazing how much you can see? She actually looks much more like a baby now and less like an alien. I have felt like it was a girl since before I even got confirmation that I was pregnant. About a week before I found out, a ladybug landed on my shirt and at that moment I took it as a good luck charm and just knew that I was going to find out I was pregnant and that it was going to be a little girl. It could just all be coincidence but it makes a good story.

It makes it all SO much more real having a face and a name, yes, she has a name but I'll save that for another post:) Every few minutes I just keep thinking of new things I want to teach her and say to her. I'm thinking about starting a journal for her to document the rest of the pregnancy and to jot down all the things running through my mind that I want to tell her.

I haven't felt all that attached to the baby until now. I mean, I was excited to be pregnant and having a baby but it felt very surreal and almost like it was happening to someone else. Now it feels real, like she's a real person that I already love and want to protect and take care of, instead of just an abstract idea or a theoretical baby. It's a good feeling, and I can't wait to watch the changes in her over the next 5 months and then to meet her and get to see her little face in person next summer!


Look at that sweet face! She was moving all around, but so far I haven't been able to feel anything yet.
I'm pretty sure she's doing crunches in this one trying to work off the lasagne I had for dinner.

Just hanging out in there.
