The big u/s

We are having a girl! I cried when the tech told us. I was hoping boy and all the old wives tales pointed to boy. It's going to be very hard to have another girl. I just hope she is ok and is born alive.
Everything looked good on the u/s. The radiologist and the dr still have to look over it all so I will get the "official" results on Monday morning. She was stubborn and wouldn't let the tech get a good pic of her brain so we may have to go back to get another pic of that. She was super low and they couldn't do anything to get her to move. Stubborn already, uh oh!
She measured 19w5d overall so 1 day ahead which is good. They put her weight at 11oz. All within normal limits. She had her hands by her head almost the whole time, just like the last u/s, so I'm thinking we may have a drama queen on our hands. Haha!
We got some pics but I'm not sure how well they will look once they are scanned in so I'll try to post them but if they aren't great, I won't be.
Now we just have to pick out a name. Thankfully Nathan and I agree on some names. :)

Nathan and I went to Maren's grave today to put some valentine's decorations there and pink flowers. There was a dead bird frozen right next to her vase. It was a small black bird with a very pointy beak. The same kind of bird that is living right near Ricky's place. It's too cold for birds but yet these one and some pigeons live near our place and one happened to get to the cemetary and pick Maren's grave for a place to rest and subsequently die.
In an odd way, it gave me comfort. I know it sounds bizarre and it is but... She is buried right next to a bush and there are trees nearby so the bird should have naturally gone to the bush or tree but for whatever reason it choose Maren. It was like it was a place of comfort for him to be. I'm sure she looked after him and comforted him til he died.

I was going to upload new photos to Rylan's photo album but found out that the site I was using either costs annually to hold more pics or they start to delete. So, the site had deleted all the photos of maren, my cards, wedding pics, and others I had on there.
I did some checking and found another site to use that lets you store unlimited photos and share them with family and friends. I am switching all the pictures to shutterfly. I am going to make photo albums for the kiddos and other various things. I have set up a website that will hold the photos and there is now a link to that on the right of this blog. I'm not sure exactly how it works but I will get it figured out. One nice thing about shutterfly is that if you want to print a pic or two (instead of waiting for me to take 10 years to mail you some), you can order prints and have them sent to target.
So, bear with me while I'm working on getting photos back online to share with everyone.
