Baby Girl!

I must admit that I've been a bad blogger lately. All blog-stalking, no actual blogging. So, here I go to catch up...!
A few weeks ago Ben and I went to get the first ultrasound. During the fist part of the pregnancy Ben and I both believed that it was going to be a girl, but for the last while we had tons of people telling us that they thought it was a boy. I wasn't sure at first about having a boy first, but I knew it was, of course, a possibility so I tried to image what it would be like, and even though I was having dreams about a girl I still kept thinking that it would end up being a boy. So, when we got the the ultrasound clinic place they showed us the baby and kept taking all these measurements of the head, heart, kidneys, etc. Finally the technician told us that she was going to show us if it was a boy or a girl. She said that she already knew what it was, but wanted to get a good shot so that she could show us. At that point I thought to myself, "K, I've been preparing myself for the fact that it might be a boy, but what if it's a girl?" So, then I put the thought in my head that it might be a girl too, and I knew that I would be just fine with that. Just then the tech showed us that indeed it was a GIRL! We were thrilled!
Another thing she showed us was the baby in the 3D imaging. I thought it was kinda weird 'cause just minutes before she showed us I had told her that I thought the 3D imaging was freaky looking, and that I didn't want to get it (not knowing that they did that there). Then she just switched it over on the machine without saying anything, and there was baby in 3D, looking like she was made of clay or something ;) But it was kinda fun. I'm kinda glad she didn't ask me.

My birthday had only been a couple weeks before that, and I told Ben that I would like a sewing machine as my present, but only if it was a girl 'cause girl clothes are fun to make, and boy clothes...well they're pretty boring, sorry. At least to design and make, they're boring for me. So, a sewing machine it is, yeah! :)

Here are some of the pics they took of cute little baby girl.

With her hand up by her face like that it kinda looks like she's trying to see through a frosted window or something.

You're pretty much looking at her bum here. Her legs are bent up on either side of the screen. This is just when she told us that it was a girl, and then typed it on the screen. :)

A cute little foot and leg.

We're so excited! And to answer your question now, no I will not be revealing any name ideas online, sorry but that's just dangerous stuff. But don't worry Andrea, now that we know it's a girl we won't be able to steal Bane from you ;)

Blog Stalker On The Prowl

So, as a nice Sunday activity I thought that I would update a few things on my blog. As I was doing that I thought I would take a look at who had been to my blog lately. I have this awesome little widgit called FEEDJIT, and it tells me how people found my blog, like what other blog brought them to mine, and where in the world they are when they look at it. It's awesome when I see someone in Hawaii or Australia. Anyway, I found out that there are TONS of people that I know that follow my blog and I didn't even know it. Holy Cow! I was so excited to see so many people had blogs that I didn't know about. Yeah, more exciting things to read!

So, just beware because I have added you, and now I am going to be blog stalking you all, bwahahaha! But stalking with love, of course :)
