::baby girl::

It's been over a month since we found out that we are having a girl, but things were so busy from the second we left the doctor's office, that I just now realized I never posted these pics of my baby girl:



This is an excerpt from my letter to her on that day:

"Last night was like Christmas Eve. I was sooo excited because I knew that today I would finally know if you are a little miss or a little mister. Three o'clock could not have come soon enough. Lucky for me I was busy at work all day, so when it was finally time to go, I was just completely giddy!

As I laid on the bed and your dad held my hand, we saw you. Perfect tiny little you, kicking your tiny little feet and showing off how healthy and strong you are. What a treat to see you all snug in your little 'room'. We couldn't believe how big you were! My how you've grown. And then we heard the words that would change our lives forever- It's a girl!

Our hearts melted right there, and were overjoyed to know that we are going to have our very own sweet baby girl."

That's just ADORABLE Taryn!! I got goosebumps thinking back to the day we found out it was a boy for us. That will be so neat for her to read one day! And you are going to be the best mom!!!

What a FANTASTIC shot of her little feet! Don't you just love those little piggies?! I know what you mean about feeling like it's Christmas Eve....that's how I've felt with all three of mine, too! And, although I'm pregnant with #3, it's just as much as a thrill as the first! I love being a mom and I know you will, too.
