It's A GIRL!

This past weekend, James prepared a wonderful cake that revealed the gender of our sweet little one. As you can see in the pictures above, we will welcome a sweet baby girl to the Talley home this Fall. We are so excited! Evan is even excited talking about his baby sister. It's nice to hear him wanting to talk about her and the things to come. Now, on to picking a name!!

We Caught A Glimpse!

Yesterday, we had an appointment with Dr. Ashurst to see our little one!! We had an ultrasound done, but only James and the nurse know the sex of the baby. I have chosen to find out this weekend with our family. Surprisingly, it has not been as bad today as I thought. I am managing pretty well!

The baby looked great and the heartbeat was awesome. It would go from 143-150(ish), so I don't think we will be able to predict a gender by the heartbeat. Dr. Ashurst says that I am carrying the baby like it's a girl, so I guess only time, or James, will tell! :)

The baby's heart, brain, legs, arms and spine all looked great. With me taking seizure meds, the baby's spine could be affected, so this was a huge point of concern for me. The minute she said that the baby looked "perfect" I was able to rest a little easier.

Evan was very excited to see the pictures and seemed amazed at how much it has grown. He is still not really a fan of this "new baby" idea. I am hoping that by the time November rolls around, he will be much more on board. I am trying not to let it bother me that he is not thrilled, but as a Mommy, you want your babies to be ok emotionally and I think he just realizes that his world is gonna be rocked upside down!!

I will post next week and reveal the gender of our sweet little one! Until then, this picture will just have to do!!

Until next time...
