18 weeks tomorrow!

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY EVERYONE! My wife and I (being nurses) are working but that's okay :). Here is a cute little outfit my mom bought our baby girl for her first 4th next year:

Well, here is our little Reese Brielle (yes that's her name). These US photos are from this past Saturday, I was 17 weeks and 1 day. The morning started off kind of crazy because I was coming off of a night shift, and I was super cranky. But then we decided to make it a beach day (after the US). So, after getting some rest in the car.... it turned out to be a great day. Oh how I missed the summer days at the beach. And soon enough we will be down Wildwood, NJ for a whole week (at the end of July)!! Also, new on the horizon we registered at Babies R Us and Pottery Barn Kids. We know it's early but we figured, hey why not? We also went to Lowes and picked out the paint for the Nursery :). My lovely wife taped up the borders of the room so now we (or she rather) just needs to find a day to paint. I would love to help but we shall see if that happens lol. 

She found her thumb!

Drama hand, "Another ultrasound!"

Love this one. She is laying on her belly on my placenta. Look at her bony butt!

Another drama hand :).

  1. I love the name Reese! It was on my list too, but I'm originally from Germany and can't pronounce the letter "R" in english properly, so it was off the table...haha.
    Can't wait to see the color of her room! We painted our guest room today, hopefully we'll be able to paint a nursery by the end of the year! :)

  2. Oooh paint colours! That's always been my favourite, so much opportunity for change and personality!

    Love the name Reese, its simple, modern, and beautiful.

  3. Such a pretty name! I'm so glad things are going so well!
