It's a....

GIRL!! We are so excited that we are going to be welcoming a little angel into our lives in October. Her name will be Kinsley Rae. I kept having feeling that we were having a boy but I am thrilled about our little girl. I am a girly and girl and can't wait for all the ruffles and bows I get to play with. I am also so excited to see the role Kory gets to play with a daughter. From the day we found out I was pregnant he was reading things I should do or shouldn't do and is always checking up on me to make sure I am ok. He is going to be a great father and will do anything for his daughter. I am also excited about the relationship that I get to have with my daughter like my and my mom have. We are the best of friends and I can't wait to share the same experience. We found out at our 16 week appointment but I wanted to wait until our 20 week appointment to post anything to just to be sure.

Our little one

Here are some updated pictures of our little one. So I have been a little absent but this little one has sucked out every bit of energy out of me. I usually will come home from work, fall asleep on the couch until Kory walks in the door and then I try to get up and cook something for dinner. I am sure you have noticed a drop in my Meal Planning Mondays and it is because I can't keep up!! I have been very blessed and haven't got sick but I am starting to think that draining all my energy may be just as bad. But I am trying to get better so keep checking back.

I have been very lucky and have a great OB! I have had an ultrasound at each appointment so far! Here are some of the pictures!!

Week 12:
Strong heartbeat. It was crazy to see how much it has gown in 12 weeks. Kory went to the appointment with me and it was so much fun having him there sharing these moments together.

Week 16:
We went in for a regular appointment and actually got to sneak a look at our little one. My OB said she would send us back to see if we could see the sex since I was 16 weeks. It was a quick ultrasound but she found the sex fast. I had a strong feeling it was a boy and have felt that way for many weeks. Kory has felt the same way until the last week because he had a dream it was a girl. And it was a......

Our Family growing!! We are so excited to announce that we are having a baby! We found out on February 6th after I took numerous pregnancy tests to verify. It was Kory's 25th birthday and I was going to wait so I didn't steal any thunder from his big day but by that evening I could wait any longer. After finding a couple positive pregnancy tests we decided we needed to tell our families. So on February 13th we had all of our parents and siblings over for a BBQ and to break the news. We gave all the parents Happy Valentines Day Grandparent cards and only a few caught on. It was fun and very exciting for everyone. We made a few phone calls that night to family but asked them to remain quite until our first appointment on March 1st.

Our first appointment was March 1st and here is our first picture of our little one. At that appointment we found out I was actually 8 weeks pregnant and little further along than expected.
