On the 22nd of September we finally found out what we are having...ITS A GIRL! We are so excited and now since we have Ariyan we have lots of little girl things! My due date is still February 13th however I am measuring a week further along (which is what I told them from the beginning). We have a couple of names picked out that we like but nothing that is set in stone yet. We think we might have it narrowed down to two names but are still looking for other options. We have decided that we dont want to decide on a name until we actually see her pretty little face! However I will let you in on the names that we have picked out so far....My #1 pick is Rylee Jo Schmidt and Justin's #1 pick is Brooklyn Elaine Schmidt. But like I said, neither of these names are set in stone and if anyone has any other suggestions we would love to hear them! I will try to post some sonogram pics and some 21 week pics soon!
As I mentioned in a post before, Justin and I signed up to do foster care. Well we finally got our placement! Her name is Ariyan and she is 3 months old. We have had her for about 2 1/2 weeks and we just absolutely love her! She is such an easy baby! She smiles at us and she ooo's and cooo's at us. She has really taken well to having us as her parents and even though we arent perfect parents we have really taken well to being her mommy and daddy for the time! I can honestly say that I didnt know how much it took to be a mommy but I am loving every minute of it! She has made so much progress since she has been with us and she is becoming such a little chunker! We have loved the opportunity to help her out and we are crossing our fingers that maybe one day we can adopt her but for now, we love being her foster mommy and daddy
