It's a GIRL

Well we didn't even make it until the 29th! We went and did something special at a 4d Ultrasound Office b/c if we plan to do a 4d late in the pregnancy, it was no extra cost to go ahead and find out the sex. :) So here she is in all her glory (pics below)... Miss Kalli Grace. She was so sweet, waving at us and rubbing her little eye.
I must admit, I thought this was a boy. Things were so different and lots of people thought the same way I did so I had pretty much convinced myself and given my poor husband false hope. lol I was completely shocked when they said girl! Especially since when the first shot of her came up I thought I saw a male part, but it ended up just being the cord. hehe I will admit to you all that it took me a few hours to get over the initial shock ... all I had been thinking about were boy things. But I soon got in girl mode and got excited about sweet sisters. I've never had that and I'm excited for my girls to have best friends for life. :) It took Kaelyn a little while to accept it as well. Nobody told her we thought it was a boy, but she insisted she was having a baby brother. She came to the ultrasound with us and after leaving we asked what she thought about having a baby sister and she still said she was having a baby brother. I tried to tell her Kalli would be pretty and sweet just like her, but she said she wanted a boy just like Daddy. ;) Finally a couple days later she got excited about her baby sister and talking about all the clothes, shoes, and toys she will give her. I can't wait to see them together. Poor Daddy...our house will soon be even more dramatic, but I know he loves his sweet little girls. Thank goodness our dog is a boy! ha!
But on a more serious note... We are so thankful and blessed with this tiny miracle and so excited God decided to give us this precious gift!

We are Still Alive...

...I promise! Okay, so I have been MIA lately. As most of you have probably gathered I wasn't feeling too hot for a few weeks early in the pregnancy and just could not do anything but make it to daycare, work, daycare, home, snack, bath, sleep. That's right.. that didn't include making dinner. My poor hubby for all those weeks! LOL He was good to me though and made me bowls of cereal and pb&j's...the only thing I really wanted. Finally at the end of May I started feeling better and cooking again. :) And then life has just been a whirlwind! Kaelyn went to Michigan with Nan and Pop for 2 whole weeks, we went up for a visit and to bring her back, then we went to FL to visit Brian's family for the 4th, and we have just been so busy and exhausted! I do plan on back-blogging about all of this... and I will date them when they happened b/c I like to document it that way for memories. ;)

As for the pregnancy... all is well. We are 16 weeks right now and will be finding out boy or girl on July 29th! In the past week I have started feeling the little flutters and very small kicks...definitely not strong enough for anyone else to feel right now, but such special moments. We are very excited! :)
