Yesterday I graduated from UVU, and my in-laws were SO kind to let us crash their house for a graduation party last night. Basically my whole family and Logan's whole family was there, and it was so fun to just hang out and eat some great food (Thanks again, Deana!).
I'm now 20 weeks, and last week we decided to pull a little trick on everyone. Originally I was to have my 20 week appointment on Tuesday, and then schedule the ultra sound for the next week, so I wouldn't be able to know the gender until after graduation. However, as it got closer, I decided I just couldn't wait long enough and called the doctor's office to see if they could pull a few strings for me and get me in sooner for my ultrasound. The nurse that answered the phone thought it would be super fun to help me find out before graduation so I could tell everyone at the barbeque, so she let me schedule the ultrasound for this past Monday, rather than the next week.
Logan and I kept it a secret from everyone in the fam (which, if you know me, is SOOOOOO hard, I am a terrible secret keeper when it comes to stuff like this), and got the ultrasound and found out the gender. Then we had to keep playing off like our ultrasound wouldn't be until the next Monday, which was soooooooooo hard to keep from my mommy.
Finally Friday rolled around....
We took my first belly picture together.
Hooray, I'm getting out of the awkward chubby-maybe pregnant stage!
(But not quite into the big-as-a-barn and so uncomfortable stage)
Logan and I decided to make cupcakes together, which were delicious if I do say so myself :). We frosted half of the tops with pink, and half with blue, but filled the cupcake with the color that would really tell what the gender was. Then we passed them out to everyone and had everyone take a bite...
And it was pink!!!!
We are having a baby girl!!!!
Everyone was so excited to hear the news, but really, I don't think anyone's excitement could have topped Logan's during the ultrasound. He was just giddy to find out that this little baby is a little lady and that he will have his very own little girl to cuddle in just 4 months. He is so sweet to her already, he always wants to talk to her, and wants to feel her move SOOOO badly. She already has him wrapped around her tiny fetus fingers, I can only imagine what kind of mess he's going to be when she's actually OUTSIDE of me and he can hold her himself. Or when she's walking and talking...or *gasp* when she's 16 asking for the keys to his car. I love Logan so much, and I love watching him just fall in love with our baby girl, he is going to be the best dad in the world, I just know it.
