Two Weeks! Well technically one week and five days until my due date, but who is counting. I can't believe that we will soon have a baby girl in our arms. Time has gone by so fast! I simply can't wait to meet this little munchkin. I am not sure who is more excited, me, Emma, or Jake. Any time Emma sees something for the baby, she get super excited and exclaims "for baby sister! I have to admit that I have been nesting like crazy. But everything is just about ready. Now it is just the waiting game. Oh, if only I can learn patience hahaha! To celebrate the baby coming, we decided to have a mini photo shoot. I love that my husband is so talented and was able to take the pictures for us. Can I just say that i love my little family! They just make me so happy. Baby girl, please come soon! Your little family is so excited for you!
And the baby is a GIRL! Last week I went to the doctors for my ultrasound appointment. This has to be be my absolute favorite doctor appointments that I have to go to. I have been counting down for this day for weeks! It was so fun seeing our little munchkin moving around, kicking, and wiggling her fingers. Jake wasn't able to be there which was a bummer (hopefully we will have more exciting news soon!). So I had the technician write if it was a boy or a girl on one of the pictures so that we could find out together. I must admit this whole time we had been thinking that we were going to have a little boy. This pregnancy has been different then with Emma's, so when we opened up the envelope we were shocked and excited to find out it was a girl. I can hardly wait! I get to have another amazing little girl to play with all the time. Emma is going to think we gave her a life size doll to dress up lol! This little munchkin of ours doesn't know it yet, but she is going to have the best big sister ever! Emma is slowly, I think, starting to realize that she is going to be a big sister. At least she loves to poke my belly and laughs when I say there is a baby in there. Of course she could just think that her Mom is one silly goose for saying there is something growing in her tummy hahahah. We can hardly wait to meet this little girl of ours. Now the fun begins as we try to think of what to name her. Luckily we can agree on girl names a lot easier then boy. So far we love the names Elizabeth, Bailee, and Abigail just to name a few. We actually have a list of like ten names that we really like but nothing for sure. It will be fun to see what name wins out. So if you have any other amazing girl names feel free to throw them out there. Emma had so much fun taking these gender reveal photos. She kept asking "again please" What little girl wouldn't love to dance around in falling balloons and petals. Luckily for us we had an amazing friend come and take some photos for us so that Emma could play in the balloons a couple of times. Meredith you are the best!
So this past month has actually gone by pretty fast. For a couple of weeks I went on a crafting craze. I was constantly working on one project or another for our little girl. So far I have made a lamp, a mobile, and a huge wooden sign. It is crazy to see how productive you can be when you actually have time to spare. Now I am just working on making sure that I have everything ready for when our little one comes. Now if only we can decide on a name for her :) oh well we still have nine weeks. Yikes! can you believe it, I only have nine more weeks left to go. Nine months really does go by so fast, next thing I know she will be here! Life is truly good. Here are a couple of pictures of the lamp and mobile. I haven't yet taken a picture of the wooden sign yet. I can't wait to finally decorate my little girls room...
Oh and for some more exciting news, Jake has been accepted to two Grad schools already. We are officially accepted into UC Davis and UC Santa Barbara. Now we are waiting to hear back form a few more schools before we make our final decision. It is just so exciting to know that he has been accepted. It is actually pretty funny how often we check his email just hoping that another email has come in. Soon we will know exactly what we are going to do for school. Only a few more weeks of uncertainty.
