I am 23 weeks today which is the official start of my 6th month of pregnancy. In ways it seems like time is flying by and other times it seems to drag on. But the exciting info this post is that we found out our baby is a....... GIRL!!

Yep it's a little girl. To say the least Lorin and I were both shocked because we have been very confident that it was a boy. I have felt like it was a boy from the start and so did Lorin, then when we had that 13 week ultrasound that indicated it could possibly be a boy we knew it! Well at the 19 week ultrasound that baby wouldn't open the legs enough so we couldn't confirm (I now firmly believe she was mad at us since we had been calling her a boy this whole time). So I scheduled a gender check because it was driving me crazy not knowing. Lorin was still confident it was a boy and I was a little doubtful. Well sure enough we went in there and BAM......girl!
It was an adjustment at first, it feels like a brand new baby since the first half of the pregnancy was spent thinking she was a he! Of course as long as my baby is healthy I don't care about the gender, we are both so excited to meet this little girl! And she is now kicking me all the time. Its still subtle kicks but here and there will be a super strong one. Its the coolest feeling in the world. We have been talking and reading to her so she will know our voices and Rocky likes to bark a lot so she should be pretty familiar with his as well.
Here is one last picture... We got a 3D one and this one is so cool to me because it is her profile and you can totally tell she has the Larson nose, plus she was literally bent in half with both her arm and leg in front of her face. Once again sorry for the blurriness...
