tiny lily in 3D!

at my doctor's office, we are lucky enough to have one of the 3D ultrasound machines. for a fee, you can see a more defined view of your baby in utero starting at 28 weeks.

for my mom's birthday, she asked to have this done for me as her present from my dad. when we all went together, about two weeks ago, lily wasn't exactly cooperating. as you can see from the photo, she had her little arms and hands up near her face (looking like she was praying), so we were unable to get a clear shot of her features. the technician was wonderful and told me to come back in about two weeks and she'd scan me again for free!

this morning, my mom (who was back in town visiting while my dad was in business meetings) and i went back to the doctor to have the rescan. i'm so glad that we did! not only was it easier to see her little face, but we were able to get a very clear shot of her anatomy. needless to say, she's definitely a little girl! some of the best pictures and video are below.

i especially love the cheeks and lips!

painting the nursery

since we had some free time, tom and i decided to go ahead and get the nursery painted this past weekend. i had seen a nursery in an old martha stewart baby magazine, and knew that i wanted to replicate it, no matter if we were having a boy or a girl. Because i love all things vintage, we are doing the nursery in vintage 1940's and 1950's decor. anyway, the nursery decorating hasn't even begun, but you will see the work in progress.

i also went to the doctor today, and everything is going well with lily. she was moving and kicking so much that my doc is sure she'll be an active little girl. start praying for us now!

here are the pictures of the nursery so far...

it's a girl!

yes, that's right, tom and i are expecting a daughter in january! we went to my 20 week ultrasound today, and found out that a little girl is in our future.
i'm so excited and thrilled at the thought of pigtails and dress-ups. however, i'm realistic in knowing that she might not be interested in these at all! anyway, in the waiting room, tom leans over to me and says, "you know what this means? dance recitals!". we both really laughed about that one.
it's going to be an adjustment, because we both were sure that it was going to be a boy. however, we're happy and can't wait to meet her in january!
here are some of her pictures from today.
no penis!

she wiggled her little fingers a lot

i love this picture. what a sweet little foot!

4 months

since the next several months are going to be crazy, and because we had a free afternoon for once, we decided to go ahead and register for our baby things today. if you'd like, you can check out what we think we'll "need" at target and babies "r" us.

here's also a picture of me while making dinner this evening. don't i look exhausted? ugh.

something's cookin'... in my stomach as well as on the stove!

by the way, we should find out what's really cookin' on September 15th ... a Jackson or a Lily ... fingers crossed!
