It’s a . . . baby!

Ultrasound profile with hand

And, as far as we can tell, a little girl.  :)  There she is with her hand to her face.  Everything looks good so far, and she performed some cute little acrobatics during the ultrasound.

Other than that, there isn’t much else to report.  I’ve been able to feel her moving for the past few weeks now and have really enjoyed that.  This is really the perfect part of pregnancy, in my opinion–past the morning sickness phase, yet before the “whale” phase.  :)

Our next step in baby prep: buying a mini-van.  Yikes!

  1. Yay for girls!! How does Jonathan feel about having another little sister?

    My condolences about getting a minivan, though. As convenient as they are… I don’t know if I can bring myself to get one. :)

  2. I think the “yikes!” comment had more to do with spending lots of money on a new car, rather than freaking out on how uncool they are – if that’s what you were meaning.

    We’re actually much more pro-minivan than pro-SUV, and have been for many years. Besides, if we wanted to be cool in other people’s eyes, we wouldn’t have married so young and would have stopped having kids after Jonathan was born. I’m happy to be perceived as the nerdy family man with a litter of children in tow. :)

    Now to settle on a name. There are a few we’re tossing around, but no revelations yet. :)

  3. Natalie,
    Honestly, I think he now assumes all babies are girls. :)

    As for the minivan… there’s convenience and then there’s necessity. In our case, a minivan will fill both. :) There is no way we are going to fit 3 car seats in the back seat of our car–or almost any car for that reason. But we are looking forward to a little more leg and cargo space, as well as the hopefully increased ease in getting the children in and out of the car (as opposed to now where we have to put Emma through the window because the door on her side is permanently locked). Honestly, the only downside I can think of (though this is becoming a bigger problem now) is the increased gas usage. :( Oh, well–we are getting one out of necessity, so that’s just something we have to deal with.

  4. I see her! That is so cool to be able to see the baby before she is born. To an ancient person like me, it is a miracle! Take good care of both of you!

  5. Oh my goodness! I didn’t even know you were pregnant! Big congrats to you and Bryan!

  6. Congrats. I love little girls. They are so much fun. That is a really good ultrasound. She is so clear and looks like she is growing really well.

  7. Congratulations on girl number 2! I’m glad you’re past the morning sickness.
