Today we went to the Dr to have our big ultrasound. It is always a good feeling to see the baby again and today they checked her heart, brain, etc. Great news - Bree is growing just perfect!! She is also still Bree =)...one of my biggest fears was to find out that she was a boy today (I would be happy with another boy, but I don't think Shane would let him wear the many flowers and bows that I have bought her, nor would baby boy appreciate the blankets with "Bree Leighton" monogrammed on them =)), but she is still a she!! Unfortunately, Bree was bashful and very uncooperative with the ultrasound! She would not let us see her face for anything!! She would either roll away from the tech or put her little hands in front of her face! We would catch glimpses of her pouty lips and chubby cheeks, but she was having nothing to do with her picture being taken!! So we did not get any good pictures, but we were just thrilled with her growth! She is going to be such a mess...just like another little girl I know...we just know it =)!!
The nursery plans begin this weekend!! Shane and Poppy are going to paint her room on Saturday and then me and Mom will begin working our magic! Some of her bedding is starting to come in and I am so excited!! So far, everything is working out just as planned! We only have 15 weeks until we plan for her to make her appearance. Have a I mentioned that my sweet Claire starts kindergarten the same exact week that we plan to have Bree?? Yeah, I can't do anything without a little drama...oh yeah, and Owen's birthday is a less than a week prior too!!! If Bree can hold off for a few days, we are going to try to be induced the Friday after Claire starts school, which would be the 21st of August (only 3 days before Tara's bday). Owen's birthday is the 14th, so we will probably have his party after I have Bree. I am telling you...never a dull moment around here =)!!
Have a good night and Happy Cinco de Mayo!! I am cooking a mexican dinner tonight for the fam and we are having our own little fiesta!!!
