It's a ....

Last Thrusday, Travis ran into our next door neighbors at the store and sometime during the conversation he mentioned that we were finding out the sex of the baby on Tuesday. Joy, the wife, told him that we don't need to pay the extra money for that ultrasound because they had one next door. We knew that they both did ultrasounds for a living but didn't know that the husband had a portable machine since he travels for his position. He specializes in heart ultrasounds and she specializes in baby ultrasounds. She is also in school to become an OB. They both moved from New York, with their 6 kids, last year.

So, Friday night he knocked on the door and said that we could come on over to do the ultrasound. Let me start of by saying it was the BEST ultrasound I have ever had. She wasn't on a time schedule due to other appointments so she was able to really take her time. The baby looks very healthy and very active! We were able to see the chambers in the heart, the hemispheres of the brain, the spine, all 10 fingers and toes...EVERYTHING. It was flipping all around, sucking its thumb, crossing its feet, so cute. She also said that the baby has already developed it kidney's and other organs so she thinks I am atleast 17 weeks along. Based on the first ultrasound I had I am about 15 weeks 5 days and based on my last period I should be 18 weeks. So, somewhere between that January 31 (our first due date) and February 11 (our current due date) we should be expecting a new baby GIRL!

We are all excited and I can't wait to watch the two girls grow up together! Haylee will be a wonderful big sister! We are still discussing names and other details so we will update when we have made some decisions!

Here is a picture of my 16/17 week bump.

Kenny Concert

Last Saturday our good friend Brandon took me to see my favorite country singer, Kenny Chesney with the added bonus of Keith Urban. Two really great singers, not to mention cuties.

Baby News...

I have two bits of news. Travis and I decided to go ahead with the gender scan at our next appointment! He has been working hard and putting in a lot of overtime hours so why notpay a little extra to find out a little early what we are having if we can. I can not wait! I am the person who buys Christmas presents early but can not wait to give them to Travis. So, most of the time he gets them early. I am really impatient! We are both very excited to find out what this baby is. Hopefully we will be able to tell and it will cooperate during the ultrasound. So the countdown is:
13 more days (August 26)

Other news that I don't think I told my blog family is about my sister, Kristen's, pregnancy. Remember I said that we are both having a baby around the same time. We are 2 weeks apart and they just found that they are not only expecting baby #1 but also baby #2! They are having twins!! How exciting!

Congratulations you two! We are really excited for the twinkies!

Random Pictures

Haylee and Briley were reading together on the couch and it was too cute not to take a picture of... They were enjoying each others choice in books.

Haylee must have really liked it!

Roxy got a much needed hair cut! You can't really get the whole effect, but it is really hard to take a picture of a dog.

One morning Haylee pulled out her piano (it is usually against the wall) and her bumbo (she loves to play with it) and played her music for 15 minutes. I thought it was cute!

We are officially out of the crib and in a Big Girl Bed!We started out one day with letting her take a nap and sleep on her crib mattress.

She did so well! I didn't hear her get up and get into anything. When she wakes up in the morning she stays on the bed and yells for me to come get her!

We let her sleep on the crib mattress again the following night and then we decided put her in the daybed that is in her room. We bought a rail to put on the side of the bed to make sure she doesn't fall out. Look how small she looks in this Big Girl Bed! Up close...she poses in her sleep! :o)

We are so proud of her! I really thought it would take a couple of weeks. I can't believe how big she is getting!

Our next task...the BINKIE!

Well I am down to my last 3 days before returning to work! I intend to spend every minute enjoying my baby (big) girl.
