16 Weeks! {+ Announcement!}

Oh dear. These "bumpdates" are hard to keep up with, believe it or not! {And sorry they are the only posts I have been doing lately. I'm hoping that will change SOON!} It's not because the weeks are passing quickly. I wish they were, but when you feel sick all.the.time. the days seem to last f-o-r-e-v-e-r. Things are getting better, slowly, but I'm still not at the end of my all-day-sickness quite yet. 

I thought about answering all of the 16 week questions late, but decided to just go ahead and skip this week. I have something MUCH more exciting to share anyway!!! ;) I will share one funny moment from this week, though. I was telling my husband, Josh, that our baby was the size of an avocado this week and then I said, "Oh! We should make guacamole this week... or... wait... is that kind of morbid???" Haha. We laughed for a while about that one! 

So... onto the exciting news!!! Because I am impatient, and wanted to know as soon as we could, I went ahead and scheduled an "extra" gender reveal ultrasound for a couple of days after I hit 16 weeks! I was SO excited to have the chance to see our sweet little baby again! 




The baby was being SO funny during the ultrasound and it was amazing to see all that has changed since our last ultrasound, just 6 weeks ago. The baby rubbed its eyes and belly, held up a "peace" sign to the camera, did some karate, and held onto the umbilical cord. Oh, and our baby does.not.stop.moving! Does that mean we are going to have our hands full? =) 

To sum it up, it was probably one of the best days I've ever had. 

And now... the moment you have all been waiting for!!!


It's a GIRL!!! We are beyond excited for this little girl to join our lives and cannot wait until she is here. We love her more than words can say already! We have chosen the name Scout Everly Davis - a name we both LOVE. 

Thank you to everyone who has sent prayers and good thoughts our way! I am hoping that I will be feeling better very soon. Now I'm off to start SHOPPING!!!
