Happy Little Heartbeat!

Okay, I am REALLY behind on my blogging and the rest of my life in general (crazy, busy week!), but this was one thing I wanted to get right up... We had an ultrasound yesterday and got our first peek at our new little one! I know it doesn't look like much yet (a little blob?), but to me it looks like a miracle!

According to the measurements, I am a week an a half further along than they'd originally estimated... BO-NUS! So the new due date is October 6. I still can't believe we are going to have a new baby so soon... lots to do, but I am getting so excited!

I am one of those crazy people who picks out names super early. (You all know me... I can't STAND not to plan ahead! Thankfully Matt humors me...) So we have agreed on Avari Mae for a girl or Bronson Micheal for a boy. (Feel free to comment...but just if it's nice!) Avari is my all-time favorite girl name. It means "sent from Heaven" and Mae is after my Grandma Cotton. We would call her Ava, which I just LOVE! However, to be totally honest, I have a feeling this is another boy, which I am absolutely okay with, especially because Daynen is so close in age. (Call me crazy, but I think it would be fun to have the two big boys and the two little boys.) Bronson means "Strength" or "Strong one" and Micheal is "One who is like God" and would be after Matt's incredible older brother, Mike, whom we all adore. People keep assuming I am hoping for a girl, which of course, I'm not going to lie, I would LOVE, but honestly, I really feel great about either one! It's just such a relief to see that happy, healthy little heartbeat, two tiny hands and little teeny feet all growing right on schedule... insert a sigh and a smile of contentment... :)

I'm putting in 10-gazillion votes for Avari Mae. {that's a KJ-number ;-)} This is 1,000 percent a Staker girl. I'm positive!
