Pretty girl...

I just got back from my big doctor's appointment, and good news all around (thankfully)! Baby Ruby is doing great - she's right on target for her growth, she's flipped around and is no longer breech, and I think that she's the most beautiful thing in the world. During her sonogram, we were able to see her suck her thumb, wiggle around, and blink at us! The nurse said that she's never seen a baby be so alert this early. I had all of my bloodwork done today, including the glucose tolerance test, got a flu shot and a rho-gam shot, and was able to ask Dr. Dullye many of my questions. I got all of the rest of my appointments set up through the end of the year (7 more to go!).

At our Lamaze class last night we got a tour of the hospital's Labor & Delivery area and were able to see some of the types of rooms and the nursery with the new babies. I am so excited for Ruby to be here - I can't wait to hold her and kiss her!

I put together Ruby's crib this weekend - it is so perfect. I like to sit in the room and just look at it. My friend Ashley said "Just think how cute it will look with a baby in it!"

Thanks so very much for everyone's prayers for my dad. He is doing much better and is back at home. He says that he's feeling better than he has in a long time, and he's getting cranky and bossy again (which is a good sign).

Here are four sonogram pictures that we got today. I might be a little biased, but I think she's the most beautiful little girl in the world.

Below is the picture of the front of her face - this is where she was blinking at us! I think that she looks like me.

Here is a picture with her hand in front of her face - she was sucking her thumb right before this shot.

Isn't she cute?

She is absolutely beautiful. Just think a few more months and you'll be able to kiss on her as much as you want. It's the best feeling in the world!
