20w4d - It's a...

healthy, active baby GIRL!! I can't believe it. I am so shocked. As are 61% of you poll-takers I imagine! :) I really, truly thought there was a little boy in there. I am so absolutely thrilled that it is a girl, though. I am looking forward to the mother-daughter experience so much.

Baby was fairly cooperative during the ultrasound. The tech called her "stubborn" because she was all curled up (literally with her feet in front of her face). But by the end the tech said that she was a good baby and she was able to get all the shots she needed, and gave us the money shot. Everything is looking great. Baby is still measuring ahead - her head is in the 73rd percentile and her body is in the 80th.

One of the best parts for me was that we were able to see her yawn. A huge, open-mouthed, gaping yawn. And then the u/s tech was able to rewind the u/s so we could watch it again. It was so neat.

Well, here are some pictures of our darling little girl. The first one is of the money shot...pretty clear that she's a she:

Here is her little tiny foot that kicks me all day long:
Baby's profile and one where she has her back turned to us a little and you can see a hand and her leg all bent up:

Here is her little face looking right at us (you know...gotta include the alien shot...):
And last but not least, her squishy little nose and lips:


Well, there is our latest look at our little baby. Our little baby girl...it's going to take me a while to get used to calling 'it' a she!

So...after the u/s my mom and I hit the mall while K went back to work. We bought some girly, frilly things just because we could. Here are a couple of the things we got (you can click them to see them better):Overall it was an incredible day. I am so happy to finally have a label for this baby and so excited to meet my daughter!
