Up until that point, if people have asked me personally what gender the baby is, I've told them, but I also gave the doctor's warning as a disclaimer, too. You know...just in case she decided to grow something extra in the month between ultrasounds. But she didn't! Kyle I think was a little bit overwhelmed with the idea of having a girl (pink, princesses, teenage years, dating), but we've decided to give her a blue bedroom and Kyle has vowed that during summer breaks he will be introducing her to several Batman cartoons, so he's definitely okay with it.
|Remember when our baby girl was just a seahorse? This picture was taken sometime in February at about 9 weeks.|
|At almost 23 weeks, she has a face!|
|And big Byard feet...|
|And a full torso, complete with a spine, several working organs, and an umbilical cord feeding into her body!|
|Looks like she might sleep with her mouth open? Well, we both do that, so she'll fit right in!|
She's also kicking away right now, although the kicks are very low in my abdomen and very light, so it's a little difficult for others to feel them. Kyle has, though, and I know she's startled one of the cats that had his head laying on my stomach. I've been joking that maybe we should put her in dance class when she gets older, but I think Kyle would rather die than sit through a dance recital (horrible memories of his sister's recitals). I'm very excited to see what kind of a baby she'll be like!
How far away is September again?
