Yay! Baby Vail is a…


Yay yay yay!  I’m excited to announce that Baby Vail is a baby boy!!!  I had my 20 week (4.5 month) ultrasound last Thursday and there is most definitely an adorable baby boy in there.  All of his anatomy checked out perfectly, and he weighed in at 13 ounces (about 2 ounces larger than average).  I’ve gained about 10 or 11 pounds so far…most of which is in my butt, thighs (boo!), boobs (yay!) and of course, belly.  

I’m 20 weeks and 3 days pregnant here.  This was taking right before the ultrasound.  I’m loving Old Navy non-maternity cotton dresses!  So comfy and cute.

Ultrasound pics are so weird but I had to share because he has the cutest little profile (in my biased opinion).


Workouts are still going well, although I feel him all the time now which makes moving quickly a bit more uncomfortable.  It’s so incredible to feel a little life moving around inside you!  It now seems quite real that we will welcome a baby into this world in just a few months.  I can’t wait to get started on the nursery now that I know we are having a boy, but that will have to wait until we move in August/September.  I’m planning on using much of the stuff I already own because I don’t want to, nor can I afford, all new furniture for a nursery.  I promise to keep you up to date on the progress!

And to those of you who are still reading my blog after my unintended hiatus, thank you!  After our trip to Paris I just have not been motivated at all to write anything.  Hopefully you’re following along on Instagram though because I often share a pic or two a day of what’s going on in my daily life.  I’d love to connect there too!

    Congratulations and your baby boy does have an adorable profile! Welcome back. Can't wait to see what's ahead with a nursery, baby, new apartment and the beach house.

    Awesome ultrasound pic! Usually I cannot see the baby at all when people show them so I nod and smile! lol But I can clearly see Baby Vail. Very awesome. I'm so excited for you! I also enjoyed your Paris pics very much. Are you moving far from where you are? I was hoping to get to see you when I move closer to you this fall. I also need advice on where to live, if you have a minute 🙂

    Thank you! It's just a local move…we need a second bedroom! We will likely PCS next summer.

    Thanks Kiley! I know babies don't really need shoes but I couldn't resist little boat shoes 🙂

    Thank you Maureen! I'll definitely do some posts on the beach house this summer…lots has changed! We are driving a whole truck full of stuff down there on Friday so things should really start coming together soon. Thanks for following along!

    Hi Karen! It's just a local move because we need more space. We will probably PCS next summer so I'm sure we will be able to meet up once you move up this way! Where are you heading again?

    I'm coming to Fort Meade. I will be by myself for the first few months, so I'll need a small cheap space, even a room as long as I get kitchen privileges! Bengie will be joining me when his retirement is complete.
