FINALLY!!!!

I usually agree with the good ole' Mormon saying "the hottest are the modest", but last Monday modesty did not serve me well. I had an ultrasound, and since I was 17 weeks and 4 days BEGGED the doctor to see if he could tell me the sex of the baby.

He gave it a good try, but my oh so modest baby would not uncross his/her legs, of all the rotten luck.

However, yesterday's appointment went quite the opposite direction. I realize this is the ONLY time I will ever celebrate my child's lack of modesty, but both Jared and I could tell before they even zoomed in that we were looking at a ...(drum roll please)



We can't express how excited we are! Here are some pictures of our little princess:

Her close-up

Her foot


Her hand

Right after we left the appointment, we went straight to Carters to buy our little girl her first outfit. This is the outfit her daddy picked out for her.



We also picked up some onsies and pants, because they were on sale. Jared was so cute through the whole thing, he wouldn't let me get anything that wasn't pink! I don't know if you can tell, but the pants have a little "booty flare" on the back- SO CUTE!



And here is me , yesterday, at 18 1/2 weeks (please excuse the nap hair, I literally shopped til I dropped ). Looking at it I guess I am not actually as big as I feel, which is nice. So, ladies, get your flower/bow making skills ready, because I am 4 months away from having this little lady and I MUST learn how to make her some hair pretties! I am so excited to expand my craftiness (which is lacking already) to make some cute stuff for my little angel!

WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! Love the outfits so dang cute!!! Girl you look great! Any names picked out yet? I loved the ultrasound being able to see his legs and arms and head I thought it was so awesome.

You look tiny right now. . . sorry :)

Some very cute clothes. Have to be honest, I will be sad if you have everyone else teach you how to make bows. . . I thought that's what big sisters were for.

I'm so excited for you! I never really thought of myself as being very girly, but after having a son for these last 15 1/2 months, I think if I ever have a girl, she will be the girliest girl ever.

And you look beautiful, btw. :)

rachel said...

Yeah!!! I was secretly hoping you would have a girl first. We loved having our girl first. I love the new clothes! SO cute!

Trevor & Taytum said...

You're tiny, so you make me sick! yay for little girls! I don't know if you'd be interested at all, but on my blog there is a link to creative lettering or custom lettering ( I can't remember), and if you go to that website and click on their link that says El Bow Maker, it's this cool little contraption that helps you make perfect bows everytime. It's my cousin's site and she created the bow maker and has it patented. It's pretty cool if you ask me.

That's really super fantastic Lindsey but I have to tell you it would have worked out either way because my name is both a guy and a girl name. Looks like your a great little shopper already. My sister and I have found that thrift stores really have some cute clothes and practically new because babies grow so fast. Sorry we missed you two when you were down here. I was really hoping to see you with your cute little baby tummy, so thanks for posting the picture. You look fantastic!

Shannon said...

Oh that is exciting! Congrats! I love the clothes too. So cute!

Will & Amy said...

Hillary said...

Congrats, girls are the best!
I can't believe how small you are, I would never guess you are 19 weeks along.

The House's said...
