Is Baby Rainey a Boy or a Girl?

Monday, January 30, 2012

It's a GIRL!! I am just completely over the moon. I know everyone says they just want a healthy baby & don't care for the gender. However, yes I would have been very happy with a boy as well, I just couldn't imagine myself with anything but a daughter. Brian called it from the beginning & I wanted a girl so I felt like it was a girl, but didn't want to get my hopes up even though EVERYONE knew my hopes soared the moment we found out we were pregnant.

Top left is leg & foot. Top right is hand & arm (looks like we have a thumb sucker on our hands). Bottom left are her lady parts (if you can see where the tiny arrow is pointing). And bottom right is her beautiful profile (looks like she may have an over bite like her momma, good thing mine straightened out on its own with no braces, hopefully hers will do the same)

We have decided on a name after much deliberation & yes one major small dispute. Brian & I were watching How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (before we were even pregnant) & the necklace that Kate Hudson wears at the dinner party scene is the Izadora Diamond & Brian decided that Izadori would be the name of our daughter & not really thinking twice I agreed. Then when it came down to it, he was disapointed that I changed my mind. I just couldn't picture myself calling this growing babe Izadori, it just didn't fit. So we have decided on Kirby Deneen Rainey. We kept it all in the family. Kirby is Brian's mom's maiden name. Deneen is mine & my mom's middle names & Rainey of course turned out to sound absolutely perfect with Kirby. I am in love.

Christmas Festivities & Brian's Birthday

Monday, January 2, 2012

We celebrated Brian's birthday this year by going to dinner with my family at McCormick & Schmick's. Which was so delicious that I have already planned for us to go back.
& I took it upon my pregnant self to steal the first bite of Brian's birthday dessert, & no one would expect any less of me (as you can see by his expression)...I think I have given reason enough as to why I have already gained enough weight to suffice an entire pregnancy.
Afterwards we decided to take a Christmas stroll to check out some Christmas lights nearby & burn off so much needed calories from dinner.
Everyone enjoyed a hot tottie while I drank my hot chocolate virgin...BOO. Hence my brother feeling the need to cheers the camera...that's just how we roll in our family.
Later this week we partook in some more Christmas festivities at my dad's & little baby Rainey made her debut to the Cours.  
Christmas Eve we headed out to Manchaca & celebrated with my mom's side of the family which has been a tradition for as long as I can remember.
Brian met all of my extended family on my mom's side. This is baby Rainey's Great Great Great Aunt Lil who has captured dear Brian's attention. Excuse my ridiculous face.
Christmas Morning we visited my mom's & as you can see everyone enjoyed mimosa's while I lounged around with the dogs.
We exchanged gifts & my mom surprised us with some little pink cowboy boots that are to die for & we haven't even gotten 100% confirmation of gender. I think it is safe to say I am not the only one on team pink.
Then we headed over to my dad's once again for breakfast & Christmas morning fun with my step brother & sister. We are all secretly vampires, hence our crazy eyes.
The best part about having divorced parents is double the gifts celebration. As you can see my new food processor in the bottom corner, for my baby food making adventures.  
& we finished the night with some football & a game of Headbandz BOOM.

Rolling In 2012

Sunday, January 1, 2012

We decided to keep this NYE rated G & rolled in the New Year with some Scrabble action & a glass of sparkling apple juice at midnight. BOOM. I know, I know we do it big around here. My New Years resolution was to start cooking healthier options seeing that I have taken every excuse to become a fatty throughout the short period of time that I have been pregnant. Brian's was for us to make some more new friends as a couple. We have shared some amazing moments together this year & have created a life right before our eyes & I couldn't be more excited to spend the rest of our lives loving one another & enjoying every moment. The best has yet to come.
