20 Weeks

My Banana!!

You weigh about 10 1/2 ounces now & are 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel, the length of a banana! I can't believe how fast you are grow & how quickly time is going by. Today is a milestone for us, it marks our half way point!! I thank God daily for allowing me the gift of being your mommy. This pregnancy has given me a new perspective of God our Father and the love he has for me as his child. I can't wait to teach you about your loving heavenly father!

This week your daddy was out of town in Texas at the funeral celebrating the life of our friend Kenny. I know that he did a great job allowing God to use him and share the story of Kenny's life. We missed daddy a lot this week and are definitely glad to have him home.

Another great thing about this week is that we found out you are a little baby GIRL!! I can not tell you how excited we are to be able to call you by name now. I know that God has been preparing my heart as well as your fathers for a sweet little girl. We had so much fun celebrating this special time with our family & close friends. What we did was I had the ultrasound technician write down your gender in an envelope and I took that to a local balloon store. I had them blow up either pink or blue balloons and put them in 2 large bins with lids. Then we had everyone over to my Aunt & Uncle's house here in San Clemente where we opened the bins and watched balloons fly. I can't wait to show you the video of every ones reaction.

We move this coming week so I'm excited to start decorating your room that I have dreamed about for weeks. I also can't wait for my next visit to Target because I can actually start buying stuff for you. We love you so much little GIRL!!

Your Mother

**We will post the video later this week along with more gender reveal pictures. With the move we are missing internet right now, check back soon**
