It's a GIRL!!!!

We finally found out the gender!! =D Our baby is a little over a pound now (which makes me wonder why I am WAY more than ONE pound heavier than when this pregnancy first began- haha) and she is healthy and growing fast. We are having a baby girl and are so excited and happy to finally know!

Our baby! (Legs on the left, arms on top, head on the right)  

It may be hard to see, but I had to post this one because it is Jordan's favorite. It is baby in the same position as the last photo, but she is touching her toes. We've laughed about it, calling it the picture where she is doing her calisthenics.
This one is cute because it is just a picture of her little foot. :) I put my finger on the heel so it would be easy to tell which direction the toes were in.

Ok, this one is almost impossible to make out, but I had to post it because this one is my favorite. Her head is still on the right and legs on the left, like the first two pictures, but its just a picture of her curled up with her arms right in front of her chest (you can see the radius and ulna in each arm) and her hands balled-up in front of her face. I thought this was cute because this is sometimes how I sleep. She clearly takes a little after her Mama :) 

A picture of the Mama :) -22 weeks and 5 days!!

Six very happy months!!! :)

Jordan and I celebrated six months of marriage on the 21st of this month! =D Unfortunately, Jordan had work that day but we had an AMAZING dinner! During our honeymoon, we had brought food from our wedding reception, and ate like kings! So I thought I would prepare some of the same things for dinner. Shrimp, cut fruit and vegetables, french bread, chicken fettuccine, crackers and cheese. Again, we ate like kings and it was DELICIOUS!! I didn't think to take a picture of it (sadly, because it was a beautiful spread!) but when we did finally remember the camera, we at least took a picture of us, in celebration of our happy day! (and days.)  :)

(  We also saw "Tangled" and it was super cute, so if you haven't seen it yet, I would recommend it :)  )

What a CUTIE! :)

"Crying tomorrow"

Jordan has been writing some new songs on the piano recently and decided that he would perform one of them in a show on campus last Saturday. His performance was going well but, because he had just recently finished writing the song, he forgot the words right in the middle. When he paused, everyone in the audience chuckled, knowing he had forgotten the words, but obviously thinking that the words would come back to him within a second or two. But after a few seconds went by, I started to worry that he might have forgotten the words altogether and that he might feel a need to stop the song midway through and leave the stage, possibly feeling embarrassed. The crowd sat silently, waiting for him to finish, but I could tell that the words had escaped him.
So, in the middle of the silent crowd, I shouted out the next lyrics for him, "Crying tomorrow!" I saw a few people in the audience turn their heads to look at me, wondering why I was shouting out what may have seemed to be random words, but then Jordan said into the microphone "Oh! That was my wife! Thank you, Baby!" and then he continued playing the piano and singing the words. Everyone started cheering and I could hear a few different people in the audience say "Oh that was so CUTE!" and things of that nature. It was so great. After the show, a few people came up to us and commented on how awesome that was to see and mentioned to us "now that's true support!" It was such a fun experience to have with my amazingly talented husband :)
