Meet Aydin Rose

We found out on Friday that we are having a little girl!!!! We are so excited. We would have been just as excited if she was a boy, but she's not. Jesse said "great, I'm going to have to start saving right now for the high school years." I'm thinkin' better start saving for right now, because I need to go on a baby girl shopping spree.

Not only do we know that baby is a girl, but also that she seems to be perfectly healthy and growing, growing, growing (as am I.) The doc said she was 14 oz. When she said this I was a little freaked out. I am already anxious about her being big because of how big Jesse was when he was born (9lbs. 15 oz.) So when I told her that the websites are saying that "baby" should be an average of 8-10 oz. she smiled and said, "12-14 oz. is normal." Phew!! Still a little anxious, but not as worried as I initially was. I think I need to stop reading those websites. They were all saying that I should have gained an average of about 8-10 lbs. by now too. Not so. I've gained a little more than that, not much, but enough that I think that those sites are stupid now. I'm just going to be a selective reader now and skip over all of that "average" stuff. Good news (knock on wood) no stretch marks. I woke up the other day with red lines all up and down my belly and I freaked out a little until I woke up enough to realize they were just sleep lines from my sheets.

Anyway, here are some pictures I'm sure you're dying to see ( :Above is a picture of her nose and mouth.

I know that no one else cares that much about the countdown to when we find out about the gender of our child, but I am seriously excited. As of right now we find out in eight days and three hours!!! I think I'm going to need to set aside a block of time to go buy some gender specific clothes after the doc's appointment ( : Jesse will be with me though, so we'll see if that actually happens. He doesn't think our kids will actually wear any of the stuff I am buying right now, but I don't think he realizes how many outfits a kid can go through in one day. We will need MUCH more than what I have so far! Also, I am now 100% sure that what I was feeling before was the baby. The little bubble feelings are getting much stronger now, so there's no question. It is so cool!

Anyway, just one week left of my long term sub job. While it has been a good experience, I am glad it's almost done. I will still have to get through one week of CSAPs, but the teacher who I have been replacing will be back for that last week of them. There is not much else going on, but I thought a quick update was in order.
