Can I get an X?

Why yes, yes you can!!
I don't have much to write and wanted to keep the momentum up, so thought I would back track a bit.
We're going to have to change the name of this here blog. 'Cause we are adding a X to the family! I know it's hard to believe. I still can't believe it. August 17th was a pretty exciting day for the Phillips' family. We thought for sure we were having a boy. Why wouldn't we? It's what we know. We already have two. We have the clothes, the toys, the linens! How did that happen?

But a girl it is. I believe I let out a little yelpy cry when she said it. It was truly a shock. Q was not so excited. He really wanted a brother. Or so he thought. By that afternoon he was asking all kinds of questions about his baby sister.
At the begining she was making me pretty sick, but about week 16 I started to feel better. And even though I was so sick and home with the boys, I was trying to count my blessings.

This is my last one. My last pregnancy. The last time I will feel a baby kick from the womb. And it's so amazing. It's a feeling you can't describe, one that only a once pregnant woman can understand. One that changes your life forever.

Now that I am feeling better and she is growing and healthy I can enjoy it so much more. I've never had to do fetal count kicks. All my babies have spent their free time kicking me. And I LOVE it. It reminds me, they are healthy and growing and strong.

She doesn't have a name yet. We are close. I've been calling her lady bug because one landed on my tummy, right after we found out she was a girl! I have had fun searching Pinterest for girly things!! Clothes, room ideas, decorations, etc. The boys were exciting to shop for too, but it's exciting to shop for something new (& PINK!).

Here is lady bug and I at a bachelorette party! I was 20 weeks and just found out (and shared with my girlfriends) that baby was a girl!!
