Hide & Go Seek

Our baby girl likes to hide...We went for another 4d ultrasound today because we've been wanting to see her again, especially since I'm feeling her move all the time now. Plus the last time we went they said she'd have more fat on her and we wanted to see some chub on her. :o) So yeah, we went again this evening...and Alayna had other plans - like playing hide & seek. She kept turning her face into the placenta and the ultrasound lady was having trouble getting a good shot of her face from the front. We saw her right ear a lot! Towards the end of session she finally turned a bit & we were able to see her chubby cheeks! We also got one good picture of her smiling - she's absolutely adorable!! I love my little Layni-Bug, even if she's playing hide & seek with us.

Chubby Cheeks

Smiling...isn't she beautiful?!?

I survived our first childbirth class!

So, besides it being incredibly hot in the room we were in, I think the class went pretty well. We ended up watching a video of a real childbirth and all I can say is I'm glad I don't have to sit where the doctor's sitting! LOL... I had to laugh at myself though because with all my hormones, I got teary eyed watching the video... I can hardly wait to meet our baby girl!

All about Alayna!

 Pregnancy Ticker

Tonight's the first night of our childbirth classes! Josh and I are both anxious and excited. :o) Can't believe I'm already in my third trimester! Alayna's getting bigger and bigger...and according to a few different websites: she's about 15 inches long, 2 pounds, might have a full head of hair already and is able to open her eyes now!

Baby registry

We started our registry today! It was a bit overwhelming, but definitely fun. We've decided to decorate Alayna's room in pink and brown (like a dark chocolate brown.) We'll probably be registering at Target too, but figured Babies R Us was a good place to start. Josh used the scanner gun first, but only because he called it before me. :o) We still have more items left to scan, but unfortunately my ankles were starting to swell a little bit and I was getting too tired for us to scan anymore. We'll probably scan more next weekend... Oh yeah, we also start our childbirth classes this coming Tuesday--sooo exciting! We can't believe she'll be here in less than 3 months now!

Alayna's crib

I would post a picture of her actual crib, but my camera and my computer seem to not be communicating. :o( Soooo, here's the picture off the target website. Grandma Patty & Grandpa Eloy bought Alayna her crib and changing table when they were out here in California visiting for Mother's Day. Thank you guys!!! The crib is pretty cool because it can grow with Alayna - it converts to a toddler/day bed and then the back can later be used as a headboard. How wonderful is that?!?! We love it!
