Alright, I know it's been more then just a day or two like I promised but we have been so crazy busy this week and I feel like I have so much to tell you!!
First and foremost we are both over the moon to know that this little person that has been growing inside me is going to be a girl, Emma Mae Mitchell. It's such a surreal thing to think about. I mean, I finally just wrapped my head around the fact that I am actually pregnant and there is a human inside me (which still blows my mind) and I was just getting used to thinking about the baby as "it". Now I have to start thinking "she" or "her". It's crazy!
Before the ultrasound I made Mike stop at a donut shop and I got a large glass of OJ and 2 sugar donuts. One of the best ultrasounds I have had (and I think it was around 7weeks) I happened to have grabbed a sugar donut on the way out the door and the doctor commented that the baby was moving well and totally cooperating. So I wanted to make sure that she was doing the same this time. Can you imagine how much of a bummer it would have been to not get an answer at that ultrasound?? Anyways, I guess I over did it with the sugar in take because baby girl was break dancing or something in there. All I can say is her legs were flying all over the place in ways I'm pretty sure your legs are not meant to bend, lol! It took a little while but we finally got the confirmation shot. I was squeezing Mike's hand so hard because I really wanted it to be a girl. Guess I got my wish!
|My favorite but least practical piece so far. I can't wait to see little Emma's chunky leg rolls in this!|
|Pretty sure this little girl is going to have a bigger/better wardrobe then me!|
|We aren't using that bedding, but it's the only pic I could find of the crib...|
And without further ado, here is my gender reveal chalkboard!!
