Getting ready for our Ruby

Both Bobby and I are really excited that we're having a girl. Bobby's been especially cute since we've found out what we're having. He texts and calls throughout the day to ask how his girls are, and he kisses my belly and talks to Ruby when I come home from work in the evening.

We went last weekend to look for some baby clothes and Bobby had a great time finding some cute outfits for her. Granted, he only lasted about ten minutes, but it was fun seeing him so excited about our little girl.

The next big project is the nursery, which will be in the piano room. We're going to paint and rearrange some things and it's going to be quite a bit of work, but I'll be sure to do a before and after so everyone can see what we've done.

We can't wait until March when our Ruby arrives!

It's a girl!

We had our latest prenatal appointment today, which included "the" ultrasound. It was incredible being able to actually see a little beating heart, hands and feet that included fingers and toes, and bones and everything else our little baby is growing. We were also able to see that our little baby is a she! Little baby Berry is now officially Ruby Grace and we can't tell you how much we love her! The ultrasound tech was trying to see her face, to make sure everything was normal and little Ruby kept covering her face with her hands or turning her head. I think she'll be stubborn just like her dad (though Bobby would tell you she'll be stubborn just like her mom).

And for Maren, and all those who want to see a belly shot, here it is! And we'll keep you updated as it keeps getting bigger.
