Our Baby Girl's Name

You all may have just read Matt mention the name "Kylie" in the post below. Kylie Mae Stump will be our little one's name. There are so many choices out there, and we both really like this name for our little girl. Most people seem to like the name, but then again not too many people will say they don't. We have encountered some that say they don't like the name, and tell us what names they would prefer. Honestly, we like the name and that is all that matters to us ;)

I'm sure we will reference Kylie many more times in our posting, so just know that we are talking about our little girl that will soon be here!

We Have Movement (Part II)

Hey readers! What's up? Matt here, and this will be my initial venture into this blogging thing.

So, I'm getting ready for work this morning and as I'm getting dressed Jody kind of rolls over and says that she really wants the baby to move (she may have actually said "Kylie" and not "the baby"). First off this was weird because Jody is NEVER actually awake when I'm getting ready to leave in the morning. I usually give her a kiss, tell her that I love her and that I'll see her later - all without much movement or sound coming from the recipient. However, today was different. She was awake!

Jody thought she felt little Kylie move and told me where to put my hand. Sure enough, just a couple seconds later, BLAMMO! There was movement. Needless to say, that was a pretty neat way to start my day.

I also started painting the nursery yesterday. It's this really cool kind of aqua-ish blue color. Yes, I know we're having a girl and blue is a boy color, but this is neat-o. We'll definitely put some pics up once it's all cut in.

Well, I hope you all enjoyed my post. I should probably actually get to work.

We Have Movement!

This morning was the first time I felt our baby move! It was the most amazing experience to feel her moving around in my belly. I have been waiting to feel this for what seems like an eternity, but it finally happened today! It kind of felt like a hiccup in my belly or something like that. I just stayed still as I lay in bed this morning, and I felt one, then another, and another. It was so cool! I can't wait until she is kicking enough for Matt to see and feel her move too! Just another awesome experience during my first pregnancy that I wanted to share :)

Nursery Ideas

After taking a very short nap yesterday in attempts to recharge, I decided to start looking for ideas and colors for our nursery. I really wanted to find some bright and bold colors to make a fun room for the baby, that will be sure to keep her alert. Yet, I also wanted to get colors that would be gender neutral just in case they were wrong and our little girl turns out to be a little boy.

This is a photo of the fabric I purchased to make a crib skirt. I love the bright colors, and the pattern has both pink and blue, which can easily be incorporated into the nursery. All the colors will give me a range of options to use as accent colors all throughout the room. I can't wait to get started, and bring the room to life!

The Semi-Official Results are In!!

Well today was a big day, as we found out the sex of our baby...It's a Girl!! Today was one of the most amazing moments of our life! To see our baby on the screen and watch her kick and move around was just awesome! I had some tears rolling down my face as I saw her. I asked the sonographer person if he had any other patients for the day, because I wanted to just watch her move all day long :) He just laughed and smiled at me...Hello I was

Now that we now we will be having a girl, I was thinking I may begin to sleep better. I'm starting to think that I will be sleeping even less, rather than more. I'm sure I will begin having all sorts of ideas of what colors to do her room in and all the things I want to do before she arrives. Goodness this is so exciting! Enjoy the first pics of our baby girl!

We are getting so close...

In just 2 more days we will know the sex of our baby! We are both getting so very excited, as the date draws near. Hopefully I will be able to rest once we find out the news, as I have not been able to sleep well the last few days due to my growing excitement.

We have almost finished our registries, and are awaiting the news before we have everything completed. My goodness were we overwhelmed with all of the baby products out there, and wondering what is and is not necessary. Thanks to a few people and some reading we think we were able to narrow things down to what will be the most useful. I am sure there will be some trial and error on some items, but we hope that we will be eliminate as much of that as possible.

It is so unbelievably amazing to see how quickly this pregnancy has been so far. To think just 8 or 9 wks ago I was so sick and needed to take meds to help with the nausea and vomiting, and now we are almost to the halfway point. I am just in awe as to how quickly this process has been, and how much I need to really embrace every new experience.
