We are having a girl!

Yep! We found out yesterday that we are having a baby girl! Her name is Peyton Claire Burks. Everytime I type her name of just say her name I get so happy. We are so blessed to have a child and are so thankful that God has blessed us with the bundle of joy named Peyton! It was such a wonderful experience yesterday at the ultrasound. It was something that we will never forget and will cherish forever. Our appointment was at 10:40 and we ended up going back to the ultrasound room at about 11:40 because the office was running behind. We finally got back there and the technician asked us if we wanted to know the sex and we said heck yeah! She showed us the baby and pointed out all the limbs. Peyton was curled up in a ball and was moving her hands around pretty actively. About 2 minutes into the ultrasound, the technician said that she already knew what the baby was and asked if we wanted to know. She showed us the ‘girl’ parts and said congratulations you are having a girl! It was so awesome. Most importantly, she also said Peyton was healthy and that evertying looked great. We saw the 4 chambers of her heart, her spine, kidneys, legs, arms, eye sockets, nose, brain, etc. It was great to hear those words. The technician also said that Peyton is about 7 inches long and weighs about half a pound! Jen’s parents and my mom came to the visit. We saw everything we wanted to see and then I went and got our parents and they saw and were very excited.

We then left from our ultrasound and then went to see Dr. Barron. I asked her if Jen had gained some weight and she said yes so that was also good. She said for Jen to expect to gain about 10-15 pounds by the next appointment which is November 4th. She also said that we can call and schedule our birthing classes and such so we are going to do that. From there, we left our appointment and went to register at Babies R Us. We also got a few things for Peyton. We couldn’t resist!  We then went to church where our friends Chris and Rachel got us a cake that said It’s a girl! It also had Peyton Claire Burks due March 10, 2010 on there. It was really nice of them to get us a cake and they also got us a stuffed rabbit and a cute dress for Peyton. After I sang a song in our bible study class, I took the cake to Jen in her ladies class so that she could make the announcement to her friends and everyone was excited! Overall it was a fantastic day!

This weekend we are going to go visit Peyton’s Aunt, Uncle and cousin! We are going to visit Zac and Rachel and Cole and we are super excited! We can’t wait to see them again. It is going to be fun!

Other than that, I can’t think of anything else. Here are a few pictures from the ultrasound!Peyton Claire Burks!Peyton looking at us!Peyton Claire Burks_2
