Meet Kate! She’s already loved by so many people! Her dad and I cannot wait to meet her…but we thought we’d share what we know about her so far….
Name: Katherine Grace, but we’ll call her Kate. She’s named after her great-great grandmothers (Bettie Kate, my great grandmother on my dad’s side of the family ::side note, she’s celebrating her 95th birthday in December!!!::, and Adam’s great grandmother Kate coincidentally also on his dad’s side) and her great grandmother Grace, my dad’s mom.
Measurements: Right now she’s about 1 lb! I cannot believe how fast she is growing…from the first ultrasound to now…it really is a miracle. She’s also on track to be very long and tall. Which both my family and Adam’s family come from a long line of tall folks, so that makes perfect sense. When the technician was taking her measurements at our anatomy appointment we were told that Kate’s actually measuring about a half a week to a week ahead of what’s considered “normal”. I was always in the top 95-98% growing up and I have a feeling Kate will be no exception…that means frequent shopping trips, right? 😉
Activity: Boy is this little girl active! While we were trying to find out if she was a boy or a girl she was literally all. over. the. screen! It took a while for the technician to be sure that there was no “outdoor plumbing”, but when Kate finally cooperated (that’s another thing, she’s stubborn!) and let us get a good view, we were told that there is no doubt this little baby is in fact a girl!
That’s all we know for now, but we are going to schedule a 3D/4D ultrasound in December so that we can get to know our girl better…I cannot wait to see her facial features and see how her personality develops over time. Who do you think she’ll look more like, Adam or me?
