A sneak peek

On Friday I went and had my 20 week ultra sound done. Everything looks really good, 10 fingers and 10 toes. One head(I don't know why I was worried about that, but I was) a healthy beating heart and a beautiful spine. So I would now like to introduce you to my Ladybug:

That's right it is a girl! I didn't think Daddy had it in him! :) I have had a feeling from the start that it was a girl. It was always a girl in a pink frilly dress in my dreams and we immediately agreed on the girl name and were bickering until the night before about boy names. That's the way it was with Bear too. We had his name picked out before I was pregnant and could never agree on a girl name. Daddy also had a dream about 6 months ago that he was playing with Bear who was about 6 or 7 and there was also a little girl who was about 2 years younger.

Well they are going to be almost exactly 2 years apart. She is due on June 9, we are probably going to schedule the C-section for a few days before that. I am not worried about size or taking her too early. The ultrasound guy said that she was measuring in at 22 weeks. And if she is anything like her brother(the gargantuan) I do not need to worry about her being too small.

She is so active. I felt her first kicks on December 21. She is so much more active than Bear was at this stage. I don't think she sleeps. That or she kicks in her sleep. Bear loves to lay on my tummy and get kicked. Every time she kicks, he has to kick his feet and say "kick, kick, kick!"

I am already going nuts about baby girl stuff. I can't wait to dress her in ruffle butt diaper covers and little bonnets. And one day tutus! I have picked out and bought her bedding. Actually I bought her bedding the night before I found out it was a girl. Boy was I lucky. Because I love this bedding so much, I would have made a little boy sleep in it! Here it is and the crib I want to get too:
I had so much fun decorating Bear's room, I can only imagine the fun I am going to have with a little girls. My mind is already reeling from all the possibilities. I need to slow down though. I keep reminding myself that I have 4 more months to get all this done, I don't need to do it all tonight, which is how I am starting to think and plan and act.

And think of the pink birth announcements! And the pink Robeez! And dolls! And doing her hair!

(We'll just ignore the whole crazy-banshee-of-adolecence thing that comes later, won't we?) :)
