The Growing Belly

This picture was taken a few days ago. All of what I am wearing here is my normal clothes, not a piece of maternity! I do have some maternity things, but more times than not I try to find something that I can still fit into to make me feel good! LOL

It's so hard to believe that I am already almost half way through this pregnancy. I just can't grasp it, and before I know it I will be holding our precious little Kloe in my arms!!!

Kloe has been very active these past few days - I have absolutely loved every second of it too!!!
Josh has been able to feel Kloe thumping around. She never did just flutter, she went straight to all out thumping - HARD! I love it though and so does her Daddy.

Name Questions

I've had a couple of my readers ask about how we came to choosing the name Kloe Nikole, if it was family related or what, is the story!

I picked out the name for if we were to have a boy and Josh agreed to it, so I made the deal with him that if I got to choose the boy name that he could choose the girl name. Josh has always loved the name Kloe, and so he told me right off that he wanted to name our little girl Kloe spelled exactly that way....he said next that he wanted Nicole as the middle name, but that he didn't want to use the traditional way of spelling it. So, I started researching all the ways you could spell Nicole and Josh immediately fell in love with the spelling of N-i-k-o-l-e. So, to keep my end of things I said okay and so that is how we came to the name of Kloe Nikole!!! (I LOVE the name btw!!!)

IT'S A.....GIRL!

Kloe Nikole

I went to the Dr. today to see the specialist and they did the in-depth ultrasound and everything came back great and that we are going to have a precious little GIRL! We really wanted a boy, but we are thrilled to pieces to be expecting our little girl!! We've already been shopping for little girl clothes as have the grandparents...everyone is SO excited!!!

Absent Again!

There has been so much going on here lately and that is the reason for my absence. Our family has had both good times and bad times in this past month.

My sister had her little boy on March 19th, and he looks just like his Daddy!
My brother graduated from the police academy and is now a sworn in police man! In much sadder news, my sister-in-law Jessica found out that she was expecting twins only to miscarry them a week later. We are all torn to pieces by this, please pray for her and Ronnie!

I go to a high risk specialist this coming Friday to get an in-depth ultrasound to check the baby for down syndrome. Josh and I are just trying to prepare ourselves, but no matter the outcome- it will be our precious little baby and we will love it with all of our hearts! I have chosen not to get the amniocentesis due to the miscarriages it causes. Please keep us in your prayer!
