It's A Girl!!!! (17 Weeks)

On Thursday, December 13, 2012 I found out we're having a baby girl.  It was one of the happiest days of my life.  When the nurse told me "it looks like we've got a little girl," I couldn't believe it.  Then she said "yes, it's a girl."  I wanted to jump up off the table and hug and kiss her!!  I was so happy I couldn't wipe my silly smile off my face.  I hugged everyone in the doctor's office including the doctor (several times).  I immediately texted Chris and then sent out many text messages letting everyone know we were having a precious baby girl. 

Watching her on the sonogram was amazing!  She was opening and closing her little mouth, kicking her legs and waving her arms and hands.  I think she was a little hyped up from the giant piece of chocolate cake I had for breakfast that morning!  It was a moment I'll never forget!  She's growing and developing perfectly.  They said she weighs 6 ounces! 

After the doctors appointment I went to lunch with my good friend and then stopped back by work to let everyone know it's a girl.  Everyone was so happy, this little one will have many people in her life that love her!

I left the office and was feeling a little drained but decided to stop by TJMaxx just to check out the baby stuff.  Of course I came out of there with several pink things and then Target was right there so I had to go in :)!  Needless to say I came home that day with several things for our little girl.  While finally driving home that day I suddenly felt overwhelmed with emotions.  I began to sob, tears streamed down my face and I couldn't help but laugh and cry and thank God out loud for this amazing gift and all his blessings.  Well, that was it, the flood gate was open and I didn't stop crying until I fell asleep that night.  It was starting to sink in, Chris and I are going to have our little girl, our Chloe.  I don't know why our lives have been so blessed, but there will never be a day go by that I'm not grateful and blessed for this miracle!

As for the rest of the weekend, Chris made it home and unfortunately he's been sick.  I have continued my baby shopping (pictures below) and started to sew.  I can't wait to get the nursery all put together. 

She's going to be one well dressed little girl :)

I finally got back to my sewing machine.  I bought the pink, minky fabric and used white silk binding to finish the edges of the blanket.  It's the softest blanket there could be!  I also made a few burp clothes that had to be personalized :).  I'm so happy I have this wonderful embroidery machine.  Chloe will be monogrammed frontwards and backwards!!


  1. so happy to see an update. She will be a well dressed little princess that's for sure. Love the burp cloths and blanket you made. Keep the updates coming! Love you!

  2. Where are the sonogram pictures of this little beauty?? :) Mikayla & I picked up something for Chloe the other day too and it's on it's way. No one can resist buying for little girls!!
