Mollie is still a Mollie!

We had another ultrasound today and it confirmed that we're still having a girl! We were so worried that we'd get our hearts set on a girl only to find out she was a boy all along! No worries though. We did get some more pictures of her sweet little face!

In this picture, she's all nice and comfy up against the placenta. She's sleeping with her arm up there again and kind of has the umbilical cord over her forehead. I think her little nose is so cute! I still keep hearing that she looks like her momma, but who knows. Evidently, she weighs about 1.6 lbs right now (which is about double what she weighed 4 weeks ago!) and is developing at a very healthy rate. I've definitely felt the stretching! She has a strong heartbeat and wiggles around all over the place. We discovered that she likes orange juice...after consuming a big glass of juice Sunday morning, she seemed to be bouncing off the walls! She did a good job of distracting her daddy and I from Sunday school for a bit. She was moving so much I sat there and watched my stomach move for a while! It's so cool!

Needless to say, we're feeling super blessed. We're sooooo excited about Mollie and can't wait for her to be here. Even though it seems as though we have so much to do before she comes, I've definitely had way more feelings of excitement and anticipation than fear and anxiousness. I'm sure those emotions will show themselves at some point, but in the meantime we'll continue happily enjoying the pregnancy.

By the way, I put a few more pictures of her in the slide show...check out her foot! It's so big already! I hope she grows into them :o)
