Introducing Baby Sydney

So she is finally here and we couldn't be more thrilled! She is just a little thing and so precious. I went to the hospital on Monday May 5th (yep, she's a cinco de mayo baby :) for an amnio to make sure that her lungs were developed. The tests came back that she was all ready and they took me back for my c-section at about 5:00. Everthing went really well. She weighted in at a tiny 6lbs 1 ounce and measured 19 inches. At first we thought that she had light hair but as the days have passed it looks like she might have daddy's dark hair. She really has her own look and weren't not sure who she looks like yet. All I know is that she is so darn cute :) She already has daddy wrapped around her little finger. Tommy is whooopppped!! It is so sweet to see him with her, it melts my heart! Shaun loves being a big brother again. The first day that we brought her home, Shaun asked if he could give her a nickname. We asked what nickname he liked and he said "I want to call her princess". Bryce is really excited too! He loves to give her kisses and he loves to hold her but only for about 20 seconds...his attention span doesn't last much longer than that. We feel so blessed to have this new addition to our family.

Getting Close!!!

I can't believe that I only have a month and a half left. I am getting so excited! This pregancy has really seemed to go pretty fast. Now that I am getting to the end I am really getting anxious to get this baby here. I love having a new baby in the house (except for the lack of sleep). The boys are getting excited about the new baby. They are constantly asking me when the baby is going to get here.

This Saturday was alot of fun. I went to a baby shower for Katie and then afterward all of the girls went out for a girls day. We went and saw Ms. Pedigrews day out. It was an okay movie. Then we went to Islands for dinner. It was so fun to get together and hang out with all of the girls. We laughed, talked and ate (all the things that girls love to do)!! It was alot of fun.

What is goin' on in there????

:0 This pregancy has been so fun! I am really feeling the baby move so much. I can't help but wonder what in the world is going on in there????? It is just crazy! I don't remember either one of my boys moving so much. There are seriously days when I wonder if she ever goes to sleep. It seems like she is constantly moving and it is so much fun! I was telling Tommy the other the day that I wish that men could experience pregancy just for this reason (but we all know that a man couldn't hang for 9 months :)

Feeling the baby move is one of the neatest things and I am really loving being pregnant! So we are thinking about naming her Sidney Leigh Thompson. What do you all think??? Tommy and I both like the name Sidney and my middle name is Leigh so we thought that it would be neat to name her after me in some way. Choosing a name is so hard!

ITS A....................!!!!!

We are sooo excited! We just found out that we are having a GIRL!!!! Oh my goodness....can you believe it....a girl!!!! I am so excited!! I had pretty much come to grips with the fact that I might just end up with all boys. In the Thompson family there are I think 18 grandkids and only three of them are girls. The Thompson's are really good boy producers :) But to my surprise I am having a little girl and am still in shock.

I went last week to my ultrasound appointment. Tommy, Shaun and Bryce all came with me. Shaun was so excited! We got back in the room and the first thing that lady said was that it was a girl. She said that the babies legs were open and that it was girl. As soon as the lady said this Bryce started saying "I don't want a girl, I want a boy". "Daddy, I don't want a girl, I want a boy". He must have said this at least 10 times during my ultrasound. We all laughed. Shaun on the other hand was completely amazed. He was asking tons of questions and tried to make out each thing that the lady showed us on the screen.

I think that Tommy was a bit in shock. After we left the office he was pretty quiet and didn't say alot about it. He seemed to be excited but I wasn't sure. Later that night we went home and watched the DV D of the ultrasound and Tommy's eyes just lit up. He started talking about how different it is going to be having a girl because he is going to be so protective. It was cute! There is no question of if he is excited or not...he's thrilled!!

We are so excited about our new addition and I hope that I am a good mom to a girl. I have never been much of a girly girl, so I hope that I can do hair and deal with girl drama :) I think that Bryce has finally come to grips with the fact that it is a girl :) We are so excited about our new little girl and look forward to her arrival!!!
