It's a Girl!

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day. It started off bright and early with a trip to the OB's office. There we got to spend an hour or so in the ultrasound room looking out our little developing bundle. During all of her twisting, turning, and somersaults, we discovered she's a little baby girl. It was also apparent she's going to be a little chatterbox because her mouth was moving a mile a minute.

Here are some pictures:

She's laying on her back, with her hand at her forehead, palm up... So woebegon that mommy got up early. :o)

This one is marked, but note that her arm is up like she's waving at us...

Precious little hand...

This is the tech's attempt at a 3D ultrasound... Our little pea was busy moving so it was difficult to get a good shot of her, but you can see her mouth is wide open :o)

When I got to the office after our appointment, dh had had an edible arrangement sent for Valentine's Day. It looks like a bouquet, but it has fruit instead of flowers. The pineapple was cut into hearts and since I've been craving fruit it was the perfect thing to do. We went to dinner with the in-laws because they wanted to celebrate the ultrasound.

Thought I would pop by and share our news and some pictures. I hope everyone is doing well and writing tons of great stuff! I haven't written much this week, but I'm eager to get back to it... And Lis's comment about fan fiction keeps popping up in my head too. Maybe I'll have to play around with a bit of that!

How was your Valentine's Day? Do anything special?

Happy Writing,
April :o)

Aww, I'm late getting by here, too -- how precious!! We still have ultrasound pics (and videos) of the girls... I remember showing them to my coworkers for the first time saying "here's a baby, and here's a baby, and here's BOTH babies together!" :)

It got quite a reaction. lol

Hope you're feeling wonderful and enjoying every second! :)
