My angel in 4-D

Hey ladies. So Friday, Adam and I had our 4-D appointment! My parents and his parents met us there and I was SO excited to see my baby girl!!

And to be quite honest, I had a few moments of anxiety about her gender. When we went for our 20 week appointment to find out if we were having a boy or girl. I was sure it was a boy. But the tech (who had been doing it for 30 years) told us girl although she never spread her little legs. Well, I have been worried since... saving all receipts for clothing and even putting off ordering baby bedding until I was 1000 & sure!
Well at our 4-D the tech said, "DEFINITELY A GIRL. Look, there's her tutu!" I cracked up!
So we are definitely 10,000% having a girl! And we can't wait to meet the sweet angel!

The name we have chosen is: Addison Leigh

We chose this name for a reason! Addison means "child of Adam" and that's my husband's name and Leigh was my middle name before I dropped it to keep my maiden name! So her name has sweet meaning to us!

We will call her Addison. And so will everyone else :) ha! I realize as she gets older her friends may call her Addie or some other nickname but until I lose control of that name situation, she will be ADDISON! And I will correct people :)

I know she is my child and everyone thinks this about their child but she is PERFECT! I mean absolutely beautiful! We can't wait to meet her and introduce her to the world :)

She weighs 1 lb 12 ounces right now. And it 11.5 inches long! AMAZING! My baby is a growin!
After the 4-D appointment, we hit up some stores and went nuts buying clothes :) If you knew my mom and I and our skills at shopping, you would understand all the chaos that is this child's wardrobe already! :) BEAUTIFUL things for a BEAUTIFUL girl!

Other things going on:
- I ordered her bedding yesterday, which I will keep a secret until her room in finished :) Then I will share the awesomeness of the company I used and their representative here in GA!

- We are still waiting on the two replaced pieces of furniture that arrived to our house damaged! I am getting VERY impatient!

- Her closet is starting to fill up quick! I will share some of my favorite outfits soon!

- She is definitely going to either be a cheerleader, soccer player, dance line girl or something. She's kicking me like CRAZY! It's the sweetest feeling :)

Thank you girls for all of your thoughts and prayers!! :) Here are the 4-D pics from Friday!

Puckering up!

One loved baby!

A sweet grin from our angel!

Perfect little face!

Mrs. Newlywed said...

That is a BEAUTIFUL name!

As you know I have one of those names that people often take upon themselves to shorten, and I never had a problem with reminding them that wasn't my name. I just referred to my self as *full name*.

I can't wait to see her cute pictures when she is born!

She is beautiful! I love the name and that it has special meaning behind it. Can't wait to see some of those adorable clothes and the nursery!

SassyEngineer said...

Oh - she is precious! I also love the name!!! Addison is beautiful and my middle name is Leigh. I didn't drop it when I got married because my maiden name would have made an awful middle name.

Anyway, she is perfect :)

Also, I had a dream last night that I got to meet you, Mojito Maven, and Erin at BEB in person! Isn't that crazy? Maybe it was a flashback to the WWW days. Have a great day friend!!!

I love love love the name (We almost used the exact same one!) Addison is my daddys middle name and Leigh was my grannies maiden name. Me an hubby went back and forth b/t that and Macy and when we seen her....She was a Macy. I remember feeling the same way about being told she was a girl...(you hear the stories where people bring pink carseats and stuff to the hospital and have to exchange everything) I didnt wash anything except the take home outfit and onesies until she was born. Congrats!!
