IT'S A BOY!!!

And he likes attention because the second I started typing he started moving around like crazy :) Must take after his daddy, haha.

We're going to name him Jackson Robert. Jackson, because it was the first boy name that we agreed on, and Robert, which is Chase's middle name and both of our maternal grandfather's names.

The appointment went extremely well. Jackson is not shy at all and spread his legs wide apart to let us have a clear view, thank goodness. Dr. M. said that he looked great, so we were so happy! He is growing just like he should. She didn't tell me to gain more weight this time...guess 1 month of pigging out made her happy with my weight gain. I've only gained 6 pounds overall so far, so I'm happy with that!

Now onto figuring out how I want to do his nursery! Chase told me I have full reign over the nursery decisions, as long as I stay away from boats...which I think are cute, but whatever. I'm thinking I'll probably do different patterns rather than having an actual theme...but we'll see. I'll try to post some pictures of nurseries I like once I gather up some favorites.

4 months down...

Well, since Ella was born, I have seen her all but one day…I think I’m obsessed. It is such a good thing that I’m having one of my own or I would be seriously considering trying to figure out a way for Meredith to let me move into her house just so I could be around the baby more. Yesterday, I called her to see if I could stop by, and I may have bribed her with a snow-cone. It totally worked too!

Well, I’m 18 weeks and 2 days pregnant today!! Where in the world is all this time going? Everything right now is going so well. Besides being tired and having some muscle pains in my stomach, I really don’t feel pregnant. I think I felt the baby move for the first time 2 weeks ago, and since then I’ve felt little movements every few days. None of the movements have been very strong, but it’s still so amazing to know that there’s a little person in there kicking around.

The BIG news is that we find out what we’re having on FRIDAY!!! I just can’t wait to see the baby again! We honestly don’t care what gender it is. We’re just praying that they baby cooperates with the ultrasound tech and allows us to get a clear view. Guess we'll have to wait and see!

Ella Grace is here!

Well, as of Wednesday afternoon, I now officially have the most beautiful niece ever. I may be a little biased, but seriously, she is the most adorable little girl I have ever seen. I’ll let Meredith share all the details of the birth story (if she ever get’s on her blog again, haha).

Here is a sneak peek of what I'm sure is just the beginning of many pictures to come…
