Meet Little Miss Kayleigh Grace

Jesse and I have loved watching our little one grow.

From a tiny little peanut at 10 weeks...

To the sweet little profile we saw at 12 weeks.


Even though we were disappointed when our "Brubaby" didn't reveal a gender at our 20 week ultrasound, we kept waiting with excited anticipation for the day we would find out---whether that would be at another ultrasound, or on the baby's birthday.

At 26 weeks, we decided to go for a 4D ultrasound.  Since the 20 week ultrasound pics we got were pretty crummy (on top of extremely disappointing!) and we had been told that unless there was a concern, we wouldn't be authorized for another ultrasound through our doctor, we figured that it was a good opportunity to have a fun photo op with our little one---and if the baby was cooperative, the chance to find out whether we were having a boy or a girl.

A friend recommended a 4D ultrasound place in our area, and Jesse and I looked forward to our appointment.  What excitement!

Within 30 seconds of the ultrasound, the tech said, "Well, that's easy!  It's a girl!  100% girl.  100%"

After so much uncertainty, disappointment, and confusion at our last ultrasound, it was such a relief to hear that amount of confidence in her voice!

So we spent the next 20 minutes watching our little girl on the screen.

Even though she was cooperative and gave us a good "money shot"  ;-), she was still a bit camera shy and spent the entire time snuggling into the placenta and covering her face with her hands.

So even though we came home with 409 pictures on a CD, there are only a few where you can really see her face!


Look at those precious little chubby cheeks!

We love you, Kayleigh Grace!


  1. YAY!!! I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOU GUYS! Now you can plan plan plan. You're probably out picking bedding, paint and all that good stuff now...ha!

  2. It looks like she is smiling in that last picture!

  3. Awww... how sweet and precious. It is awesome to be able to see your precious baby in 3D. That wasn't around when I carried my kids. I love the little smile she has in the last pic. :)

    God bless and keep you!

  4. I got regular ultrasounds and a 4D ultrasound every other week with Tessa at the perinatologists...I have a HUGE folder full (12 visits in all)! But only one time and for a brief second did she ever show us her face. Out of that whole folder I only have two pictures of her face. She always hid too. Funny little girls! How great it is to be certain you have a girl though. Time to plan!

  5. CONGRATULATIONS!! How exciting! Little girls are so much fun :)
