Our baby girl

I hadn't posted yet about the sex of our little baby because I wanted confirmation. Our doctor in Reno did a favor for us and did an ultrasound to find out the sex. The entire time he was with us, he kept telling us this was really early blah blah blah (I was 17 weeks, not that early). We went in and saw the doctor here in Phoenix on Monday. I LOVE her. I didn't think I would like her as much as Dr. Farringer, but I think I like her more. She's awesome. I asked her if I could get another ultrasound to make sure our baby is really a girl. She agreed but said we would have to make an excuse so she said that she is measuring big. We got in today and the technician was not too happy with Kalli. She was breach last time and nothing changed this time. She is firmly planted in her position and would not move at all. The technician even made a comment that she may not move from being breach because she was so comfortable. She also stated that this one was a hard one and told us good luck with her. Anyway, we are so excited that she is "still" a girl. Good thing too because I have been making her blankets and didn't want to start over for a boy. Here are some pictures from the Reno ultrasound. Not great, but they will do. 
Here is her profile. This is all the technician today could get also. Her head is wedged right under my ribs, I had wondered why it hurt to sit down sometimes. Also this explains why I am so high, her head is up top.  An arm and a little bit of a leg.  This picture points out her girl parts but it's not a good picture. The new one we got today was better but not great. Her butt is down and at an angle that was extremely hard to get. We think she is already pretty stubborn and the technician said that she will most likely be giving her brother a run for his money. Someone needs too.

Oh!!! I love the profile pic! So much cuter than ours! Seriously, ours was way creepy-I was hoping for a profile but got the full face, and it was not at all what I expected. Congrats (again) on having a girl (for sure)! :)

Yeah for a girl! I understand abou t wanting to be sure, I was a littl hesitent to get excited about having a girl with both Tori and Ella because it is easier for a doctor to mistake a boy for a girl then a boy for a girl. You will love having a girl! They are so fun (so are boys but you have one already so you already knew that). Get to shopping, the baby girl clothes are so cute!

I love that name! Ultrasounds are so fascinating...I'm glad you found such a good doctor here in the valley.

Oh, how embarassing to have your little girl parts pictured on the internet before you are even born! I am quite certain that she will pay you back many times as she does embarrassing things in public to humiliate you as she grows up. We are excited for you to have a little girl. It is fun to see how they contrast with boys.
