Baby Shilling is a...



GIRL!!!! This is not "new" news to most, but I realized I never did post it officially! We could not be more thrilled about a little girl coming soon! Secretly, I hope she gets her daddy's dark features...tan skin and deep brown eyes. :) We shall see!

As you can tell...she (aka my BELLY) is growing! It is surreal to feel all her jabs, kicks, and rolls...I couldn't love it more!
Braxton-Hicks have started a couple of weeks ago - they don't hurt at all thankfully. I'm glad to know my uterus is practicing for the big day ahead...just so long as it doesn't go overboard - it needs to keep baby girl cozy and growing in there for at least 11-12 more weeks! Crazy thing is, time is flying and it will be here before we know it! For now, Eric and I will enjoy our quiet evenings together and soak up the fall weather with pumpkin muffins and decaf coffee/tea/hot chocolate. :)

As much as I love Eric- I want this little one to look just like YOU! Maybe she'll have Eric's soccer skills? Or his laugh?
She's going to be loved and beautiful and perfect- no matter who she looks like though. :) xoxo
