Just saving my space!! Hopefully I'll be able to make it better in a few days!
The first photo showing us that you were going to be here in 9 months...
Here you are at 9 or 10 weeks I think. Your little head is to the left and the rest of your small body to the right. (date in photo is messed up due to changing batteries)
You weren't doing very much at the time. But I do remember seeing your little heart beat.
Here you are at 20 weeks! Wow how you've grown! Your head is shown... and you also have your little foot up by your head. Are you going to be a little toe sucker? We shall see.
YOUR A GIRL!!!! We are going to name you Bella Grace.
Here I am at 23 weeks.
Here I am at 25 weeks.
Here I am at 28 weeks! You are really starting to pop out there!
28 weeks again. You are growing so big!
Some painted Letters of your name that will go in your room above the window. BELLA.
More photos of your room and how it's coming along! SOON.
