Busy, Busy

I have not forgotten about this blog and plan to update it very soon with baby news and others. We will begin to move our stuff into our new apartment this Sat. (21), and I have been busy getting things packed and ready for that among housework, etc. We are all very excited about our new place of residence, and I can't wait to post pictures for all of you to see. We have so many changes going on. It's going to be hard to keep up, but I wouldn't want it any other way.

Mark has begun potty training at school, although not much progress has been made yet. I know it doesn't happen overnight, but his teacher has promised to have him potty-trained by the time little Alyssah joins our family. I hope she's right ;) It would make things much easier for me and cheaper! I'll already be buying lots of diapers and eventually formula for her.

Stay tuned for more updates on our little family! I have got to take some more belly pics as well...one more thing to add to the to-do list! ;) It's never- ending!

Alyssah Elaine Adams!!

Yesterday (8/4) we found out we are having a sweet little baby girl, and I couldn't be more thrilled. All of my friends kept saying that we were going to have a little girl, and even Mark knew. I wasn't sold on it until I saw her, but I did dream she was a girl. Her heart rate was 154 and she weighs 4 ounces. I was in tears when I heard her sweet little heart beating, and I just knew my life would forever be changed. I am now a mother to two precious little lives! My love for Mark is abundant, and I always thought it would be difficult to love another baby as much. There is no denying it though, I'm smitten with her already! It's amazing how much love we have to offer as mothers. I can't even describe it in words.
Now we have a lot of planning to do because I have nothing for a little girl. My mind has been on little boy things for the past couple of years, but it will be a fun change. I just love baby girl clothes and can't wait to start her, what I know will be huge, wardrobe :)
Thanks for all the prayers for us during this time, and appreciate many more please! Here are her pictures from the ultrasound. I will be posting about our Revealing party later with pictures. Happy Thursday everyone. Have a great weekend!
