Ahem! Your attention please. Introducing...

Adalie Elizabeth!
While she is not here yet we did catch some precious glimpes of our little girl last night! Keep in mind that I fully realize that I am completely biased but I do think she is absolutely beautiful! I also completely understand that these images are a mixture of science and art and do require the use of some imagination. Bear with me and admire our next tender addition!

We were relieved that she is healthy! She is free from a cleft palate, downs and spinal bifida. We also confirmed that she is indeed a SHE so there will be no big surprises! She weighs 3.6 lbs which is actually a titch smaller than she should be which is a relief given the diabetes. Here she is with her little right hand curled up by her pretty little face.
Here is her sweet little profile! She has a little nose identical to Kayla's. We got to see her moving around a little in real time which was plain amazing! My heart melted in wonder and awe.
On the B Side: Seeing our baby is not something that I can describe! It was surreal and wonderful and brought so much excitement to myself and Marky. The kids stayed attentive for the first few minutes but got bored pretty quickly. Nonetheless it was an extremely special experience for all of us. I feel so excited and energized and was able to step back and look at the big picture all over again. We are so crazy blessed and I am so excited from the inside out! xoxo

Biased you might be, but I think she's beautiful too. How fun! I love getting ultra sounds. I wish I had a scanner, so I could post some of our fun pics. Oh well! Congrats are your day and so glad to hear she hasn't gotten too big.

What a beautiful little girl! I am so excited for you and Marky!! I too love ultrasounds... they are the funnest and ALWAYS bring a tear to my eye watching my babies move around in my tummy.

I can't wait to hold her either!

Ella prays almost every night: "...and bless Britta to have her baby..." It's so cute that she's thinking of you and your baby and I don't ever have the heart to tell her that we don't WANT you to have your baby YET! So, I let her go on praying for you and your baby doll every night. She is so sweet. And so are you, missy!

Love you!
