It's Here...

Well I am finally over the half way mark! I am almost 21 weeks and I couldn't be happier to be feeling much much better....It seems I am growing more rapidly since I hit the 20 week mark so it's a good thing it didn't start till now or I would be ginormous!! I found a picture of when I was pregnant with Brody and I am thinking that they are around the same time...I'll have to check. Just think it is fun to compare :) !! I can't wait to meet this baby girl!!!

IT'S a .......

SWEET BABY GIRL!!!! I am so excited to announce that we are having a baby girl! Derek and I have both been so excited about finding out what the sex was on this baby. Yesterday we found out and it was so exciting! As we were driving to the appointment, I said to Derek, "I don't think I was this excited to find out what Brody was." He said that it was probably cuz we just were so lost in the whole being pregnant thing that we just weren't all there :) Anyway, as we got to the appointment yesterday, you have to have a full bladder, so I was so uncomfortable that it was hard to not think about anything else but going pee! And sure enough, I over did it a bit.! My bladder was so full that it was making the placenta mush out and look like it was covering the opening, which isn't good. She had me go pee and count to ten and stop, and I still had a full bladder! I guess it just shows that when I'm told to do something, I don't do it 100%, I do it 150%! Ha! Anyway we had such a great ultra sound tech and she was so very thorough! After about 20 min (it felt like) of measuring other parts of the baby she said, "well lets look at the rest of the parts, now what do those two little lines look like?" Starting to sob I said, " a little girl?" She said, "yep, that's what it looks like to me. !!! I started crying of course and she asked if that was what I wanted and I was crying so hard I couldn't even answer, so Derek answered for me :)! I assured her that they were tears of joy! Then she double and triple checked for us!!! A LITTLE GIRL! We, especially I, feel so incredibly blessed and I am so excited... Derek is so cute and walks around saying, "Don't do this or that, it might hurt my little girl." I love it. I can't wait to meet her! We are trying to train Brody to say baby sister now instead of just, "that's my baby mommy."

Baby Girl~

Your mommy has been so excited to assure herself that you were coming. I can't wait to meet you and hold you in my arms! You will be the apple of your Daddy's eyes, I'm sure of it. I can't wait to dress you up, do your hair, paint your toes, and most important, love you so! Your big brother will be so proud of you and I can't wait for him to meet you. He has such a tender little heart, and I know he will love you with all of it! We love you sweet baby in there and hurry home!

Dear Baby.......

Are you a boy or girl.....???? We are dying! I think we are more anxious to find out what this little one is than we were Brody...And I think it is because we both have NO idea!!! With Brody, Derek was absolutely convinced that it was a boy, and I think he just convinced me :) But this sweet little thing gives us no ideas!! I am so excited I can hardly stand it. I secretly almost called the hospital to tell them that I would be out of town in a week and a half so we could move it up...I am so bad!!! Anyway, this pregnancy has been way different than Brody was but, I still have no idea! I am feeling tons better though and pretty much back to my same energy level, which I am grateful for. Well our little family has been pretty low key the last few weeks but we are headed out to go fishing today so I should have something to post about soon :) I am also LOVING living here for the summer. This is my first summer here and I love the fields full of food. Every time we drive by a field or piece of machinery, I am asking Derek, "what is that" or "what does that do?" I think I am catching on! I LOVE IT!

Brody is just full of life. HE is so great lately, talking, talking, talking, and playing. He is going through a rough stage right now with other kids and it kinda breaks my heart but I know it is just part of the 2's.... We love his rambunciousness and playfulness. He is definitely all boy and it is so fun!

Derek is just working and having fun riding his bike on the weekends...and fishing a bit... We love him too and Brody is just ecstatic when Derek gets home every night. One night I took Brody's basketball hoop outside on the porch to play. I started to shoot the ball and Brody said, "No mom, I want Dad to play my basketball game with me." FINE....I thought...but so cute that he loves his Daddy so. Then we were driving in the car the other day, past some construction, and Brody says, "My Daddy likes big trucks and big tractors, and I like big trucks and big tractors too mommy" I agreed with him that Daddy likes those things and he said, "And my daddy likes spiders and snakes and soccer balls and baseballs and footballs and my basketball game.." I said yep as my little heart melted :)
