I'm SO excited to finally be able to announce that we are having a sweet baby girl!! You have no idea how excited and over the moon we really are. When we found out, I sobbed so hard, like the worst ugly cry, ever! The ultra sound tech asked Tyler "Is mom happy it's a girl?" because I was so emotional, I couldn't even get the words out! Of course we would have been blessed either way, but I was really praying for a baby girl. I thought, since I wanted one so bad, I wouldn't get one!! 

We were able to find out a couple weeks ago, the day I was 15 weeks along. There was no way I could wait until my doctor did the ultra sound at 21 weeks, so we went to a private 4D ultra sound location instead. It was the coolest experience and best day of our lives. We were able to have our family members in the room and we all found out together. It was a day I will never forget!! Since it was a Saturday, the first thing I told Tyler I wanted to do was go to the mall :) We spent the day shopping for all things pink, leopard, and polka dots! 

Without getting too mushy and emotional, I truly thought in my heart that I would never be able to get pregnant and carry a sweet baby. There was countless nights when saying my nightly prayers that I would ask God to please bless us with a baby one day. It's so surreal now to watch all my prayers unfold before my eyes. I am so excited for this journey and all the adventures before us. To top it off, I know Tyler is going to be the best dad. It's already so cute how he always gravitates towards my belly and talks to her. It really melts my heart! 

On a way less serious note, let's talk fashion...that's why I do have this blog, right?! :) One of the reasons it took a little longer than I wanted to announce to you guys the gender, was I couldn't find anything to wear in the reveal pictures!! I guess trying to shop for a pink dress in fall/winter isn't the easiest thing. I finally gave up and decided to go with a more festive, holiday look! Tis the season for red dresses! I really adore the way the different textures look against each other. I love lace & faux fur together! This is the perfect holiday party combo.

XOXO, Kayla
