Last Friday we went out to supper with Luke's grandparents. We were trying to get Amelia to tell them what she thought the baby was going to be. We could only get one response out of her. We asked if it was a boy or a girl, and if it was a brother or sister. She would only reply, "A puppy." She thought it was hilarious! I think it's because that's one of the things on her birthday list (A puppy, a red DS, and a guitar).

At church on Sunday, Amelia was telling anyone that would listen that the baby is a little sister and we are naming her Eliza. We bought some "Big Sister" books to read with her, so we can talk about what's going to happen and what she can help with. One of the books is called Hello Baby!! and the little boy in the book had a little sister they named Eliza. Luke had to go around church and correct people on the little rumor that our daughter spread...

21 weeks (Ultrasound and check up)

So we had our ultrasound! We are growing a beautiful & healthy (and big might I add) Baby!! Sorry folks, we didn't peak at the gender...

I am 21 weeks and 1 day today. The baby measured at 21 weeks and 6 days in the ultrasound, and I measured at 23 weeks growth. Baby weighs approximately 1 lb. 1 oz. So, with all the measurements put in, that puts baby at 91st perentile. My blood pressure was good, and Baby's heart rate was 143. Baby's head was down, resting on my (very full) bladder.

We got some pictures from the ultrasound that I will load and post later. There is a funny one of baby flexing his (I say "his", but again, we don't know the gender) bicep. I told Luke it must be a boy because he is showing off. He thought it might be a girl shaking her fist at us!

So, that's pretty much it, folks!! Enjoy the pics--I know I do everytime I look at them :)
