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!!
