IT’S A GIRL! Yes folks, that right. My sister in law (Bryce’s sister) is having a baby girl. Many of you knew that she was expecting but she and Phillip just found out on June 19th that it’s a girl! Her name is Sadie Jane Scott! I’m certain that she will be just as precious as her little name. We can’t wait to meet her on November 19th (or around that date anyways).
Also, Bryce had some family members drive in to attend the shower this past weekend. We enjoyed their company after the shower on Saturday by having a pool party.

Even more exciting baby news… we found out that Bryce’s cousin Kalista is expecting a baby too. She is about 7 weeks pregnant. She is due on February 5th! Since she lives in TN we will not get to see her as often but are excited to have what opportunity we can to celebrate with her!
Also, for those of you that are curious... we did receive the "OK" from the Dr. about being on the TLC show, "A Baby Story". However she did mention to me that the hospital might be the only concern. She was not sure if they would agree or not. Either way, I submitted the second portion of the application last week and we are still awaiting a response. I highly doubt that we will hear anything from them and even if we do I don't think that we will be chosen for the program. With that said, I will keep you posted.
This past Saturday, June 20th I had my first Baby Shower! It was amazing!!! My Aunt Cathie (who is actually an “ex” aunt) came in town to host the shower for me. Since she is not from this area but wanted to make sure everything was convenient, she hosted the shower at my mother’s house. My cousin Anne also arrived in time to help her out. And of course, being at my mother’s house, she had to chime in on the efforts as well. With the three of them working together they did an amazing job. I would never have dreamed to have a shower so gorgeous and wonderful!
Here are a few photos from the Baby Shower:

Bryce and I (as well as Kyah) received so many things that I am sure will be such a lifesaver here in the next few months.
- Wipes Warmer
- Diaper Bag ( I received 2 personalized diaper bags… SO Cute)
- Bath Accessories/Supplies
- Rainforest Swing
- TV Monitor set
- Many Gifts cards and checks
- and lots of other stuff that I failed to remember
With the Gift Cards that we received to Babies R Us and the checks, we were able to go out and purchase the Changing Pad with a cover, the Play Yard/ Bassinet/Changer and the bouncer.
Since there are 2 more baby showers scheduled I figured that it would be kind to hold off on making any additional purchases so that people have choices.
Thanks again to everyone that attended and made a "contribution" to Kyah’s needs. Also a special thanks to Cathie, Anne and my mother! I love you all! The baby shower far exceeded my expectations!
During this past week I have been having waves of nausea that lasted a few minutes here and there. Today however, it just will NOT go away. I left work early to come home and lay down with hopes that it will go bye-bye. The most upsetting news... I actually threw up for the first time during the pregnancy this afternoon. I was trying to avoid it as much as possible but I thought that maybe... just maybe, if I gave in I would feel better. NOPE! Still feel awful... hence the reason I am at home.
