26 Week Ultrasound and Update!

Good news to share! Went to the perinatologist (aka "specialist") today for a follow-up appointment, and he said that everything is "perfect"! Spine, heart, brain -- all of it! Woo hoo! They were able to get a complete view of all her vital parts, and confirmed that she is A-OK. I wanted to cry, I was so happy and relieved!

So here are her stats:
Current weight - almost 3 pounds! Dr. said the average at 26 weeks is 1.5 lbs. She's already a chub : )

She is also VERY long - he said she is in the 90th percentile (average is 50th percentile) for the length of her bones. No wonder I can feel her kicking and punching so much!

She has a HUGE smile (see attached pic)! Happy Baby, Happy Mama, Happy Family : ) She was also sticking her tongue out at us today. Nice.

I love my baby girl so much -- I can't wait to see her!!

What I'm Loving: Mural Mural On a Wall by Amy Lee

One of my friends is an amazing artist who paints beautiful nursery murals. Check out her site here:  and if you're in the Atlanta-metro area, contact her:

I'm going to see what she thinks about bringing my "Sweet Tweets" theme to life (fabric swatch below) for my baby girl's room.
