Anna Todd's First Photo Session!!!

We had our 4D ultrasound today, and I highly recommend all my prego friends to fork out the money to get one. Todd couldn't be there because he is in Cape Cod visiting his family. We got 80 pictures on CD and a DVD of the entire session so he will get to see everything I saw.

I was warned that these ultrasounds are baby dependent...meaning if the baby is not cooperative you don't get good pictures. Well I am happy to report that Anna Todd LOVES the camera! She was posing and moving so good. Folks, we may have a model in the making!!! I was so pleased with pictures. I think she already has Todd's feet because Deidre (the ultrasound tech)said her feet are big! Anna Todd still has her legs crossed...Deidre said she is a modest little thing. At the end of out time she put her hand above her forehead as to say "No more pictures." I guess she is anticiapting the paparazzi...or maybe just her mother with a new camera!

Captiva Island 2008

Todd and I went on our last vacation before Anna Todd is born (yes, we finalized the name!) We had the best time laying on the beach, watching the most beautiful sunsets, and visiting a wildlife refuge. I think Todd's favorite part was seashelling...yes, Captiva Island is the seashell capital of the US! We brought back so many seashells that the x-ray police at the airport asked me if I left any seashells on the beach! It was so funny! My favorite part was relaxation, but I was still up an hour every night because that is what pregnancy has done to me. I wake up every night around 3 am and cannot go back to sleep for atleast an hour! "They" say this is God's way of preparing us for when Anna Todd gets here....I say it's a cruel joke!

Todd and I are happy to report that our little peanut is a GIRL!!! We bought a little pink dress for her to celebrate. She has already got a great wardrobe started thanks to yours truly! (Everybody tells me when Kidz Kloset comes to town you have to be prepared to take advantage of those great prices, and everybody was right.) And her closet is awesome! We had Gulf Coast Storage Solutions come in and design it. Tim (the designer) did a bang up job. Her closet is like an organizers dream. I will continue to strive for this skill!

The name thing is still a bone of contention around the Cheney household. I really like Anna Todd, but Todd still wants to debate about other names. Both our grandmothers were named Ann and doesn't every little girl want to be named after her daddy? I mean really...what is there to debate about??? I guess the double name thing is still a foreign concept to my Boston husband. So the debate lives on....

Here is a pic of her fabulous closet! Notice the Mississippi State onesie, her first pink dress for church and I even bought her a dress for her first Christmas (size 9 months....thinking ahead my friends!) I am a little excited to say the least!

My first attempt at blogging...

Todd and I have been married for 3 and1/2 years and are expecting our first baby....March 7th! We are super excited to start a family. I will let everyone know if we are having a boy or a girl as soon as WE know. Funny 13 weeks we thought we would have an idea because the ultrasound tech said she had been doing her job for THIRTY years and could tell at 13 weeks if she saw little boy parts. Since I am a control freak I thought this would be great. Well of course our little stinker had their legs crossed and she could not make heads or tails if our little peanut is a boy or a girl. We are 17 weeks pregnant (almost) and I should know something in the next 3 weeks....pending no leg crossing!!! I hear coke and chocolate should take care of this. I am always open to ideas to make sure we don't repeat the same episode.

Since many of my friends do this blog thing, I thought this might be an easy way to keep up with the Cheney family! I really enjoy keeping up with all of you!
