Our Little Baby Girl!!

These were the ultrasound pictures we got when we found out it was a girl. I have been meaning to post them forever, so here they are! The name still isn't for sure, it would be, if Chase had his way. The nursery is half painted- meaning that I made a decision so Chase could get started.
It's crazy all of the emotion & feelings that come with being pregnant. I haven't been sick but have noticed a difference between the 1st & 2nd trimester. I was so tired for the first 3 months & now I feel like I have more energy. It's been great getting back to the gym & getting a workout in everyday. I sleep so much better at night. I am definitely not as bad with mood swings. I am really starting to realize how close this day is coming when we're going to have a little one around the house & in our lives. We have lots of friends w/ babies right now & it just makes me so excited! I get even more excited when Chase is around because the baby moves so much! I think we might have a daddy's girl on our hands. She loves to hear his voice! I guess I can't blame her:) Through all of the emotion & stress of being pregnant I catch myself thinking too much about the nursery, colors, bedding etc. But lately I have had a different perspective on our lives. I feel so caught up in those decisions that I forget about the miracle of life & the belief of eternal families. I think more about how my dad has already met her & told her all about her family. I think more about what I can do now to prepare to be a better parent/person/wife. I think more about how my kids are going to turn out, especially with the trials life has to offer. I think about how I am going to raise these kids so they will have good morals & want to make good decisions. Well, I guess I am just thinking too much is what it comes down to. But after all these thoughts & some tears I still can't describe how excited I am to start this journey of our lives. I know it's going to be hard, humbling & lots of fun- but I know with the faith & testimony I have that everything will turn out how it's supposed to!

I love this second picture because it shows her cute little legs! It was so cute when they took this picture because she kept crossing her legs!!

At first I had a hard time with the 3-D pictures but I guess it's totally different once it's your baby! She kept covering her face (shy baby??) so this is the only one we got with her face!
