Baby Girl!!

I have been progressing well with the pregnancy. I am beginning to enjoy it (some days more than others). I am now at 22 weeks. I am finally at the point that others can tell for sure that I am pregnant rather than questioning if it is just a fat gut. I wanted to wait for this point until I posted belly pics. We went to the 20 week ultrasound and doctor's appointment about two weeks ago. They told us that the baby is doing well. We heard the heartbeat for the first time. It was truly amazing!
During the ultrasound we found out that we are having a girl!!! We are so excited to welcome her into our little family. We decided on the name Josephine Ryne. It has no family significance, we both just really liked the names! We are now just watching as Joey grows and begins to move around. I can feel her most days, but Pete is still not quite sure if he is feeling her or not. We will just have to wait until she gets a bit bigger.

This was about 8 weeks. She was just a speck.

This was at about 16 weeks. She was getting bigger. More baby like. She was small enough that you can see all of her.

This is one of the better pictures we got at 20 weeks.

About 16 weeks.

Today at 22 weeks.


  1. Awww! You are too cute! What a gorgeous looking preggo :)Its starting to get exciting eh?

    All these babies! Two of my friends here in Dallas just announced that they are pregnant, and my nephew was born last night :)

    So is Josephine Ryne set in stone? Like if you were to receive something with that on it, that would not be a problem? ;) Also, nickname "Joey", is that the correct spelling?

    So happy for yall! Hope the rest of the pregnancy is easy and enjoyable. Keep us updated!
