Halfway there and counting!

Yesterday marked 20 weeks...halfway there! I can't believe it. It seems to be going so quickly! I'm sure the larger I get (and the hotter the weather gets), the slower it will seem. Now, Philip and I are just having fun preparing for Caroline! My in-laws are coming up today to help us fabric shop, and then I am headed to Mobile for the beginning of next week (yea for Spring Break!) to shop some more with my mom. She and I are going to be making all of the baby bedding. I'm sure we will also be picking up fabric to make diaper bags, Easter baskets, baby slings, or anything else that can be sewn/embroidered. We are a bit ridiculous, I know.

Oh, and somewhere in there I am going to be finishing my dissertation on the Corona Theorem in H-infinity-sub-K space. (What'd she say?) For those not in the know, that is the space of functions whose kth derivative vanishes at 0. AAAGGHHH! Then I can be a stay-at-home mom with a PhD. :)

And her name is...

We have chosen her name! Caroline is THE name that I have always wanted to use for my first daughter, probably since I was 10 years old. However, when we began discussing names, Philip came up with the name Callie. I had never heard him mention it before, but he REALLY loved the name and was pushing for it. Well, we were then informed by a friend that she has heard Callie be used as a nickname for Caroline. And there you go! Both of our favorites in one name. So, we will call her Caroline, but Philip's special-daddy-nickname for her will be Callie. We can't wait for Caroline Brynn to make her appearance!

It's a pink baby!

Well, Philip and I got to see our little munchkin yesterday via ultrasound, and it's a girl! The doctor said that everything looked great. Actually, she said she looked like she had the brain of a mathematician. :) In the picture above, she's looking right at the "camera." I hope that this is an indication that she will pose for lots of photos! We are so thrilled to be having a daughter. No, we don't have a name yet...we'll keep you posted. :)
