My friend Gabby, is an ultrasound tech. She was so sweet to offer to scan me for free in 3D! I could barely wait for the to day arrive, knowing we were going to get our first glimpse of our sweet baby girls face.
And low and behold, she has Eric's lips, exactly like I wanted.:) I love how big them seem, although I'm sure they aren't as huge as I think they are. And I'll take that cute button nose and those wide set eyes any day. I wonder how much she'll look like this when she actually arrives. Sometimes babies come out looking just like their ultrasound pictures, others, not so much.
I've grown impatient in waiting for her to come, not because I'm uncomfortable, tired of being pregnant or want an end to all the back pain, continuous hunger and need for sleep. Those I don't mind because I know it means I am growing our baby.:) No, I'm impatient because I JUST WANT TO HOLD HER! I am DYING to hold her in my arms and cuddle her, and finally be able to kiss her soft forehead, rather that just feel it as she presses her head up against my ribs haha.:)
Cute little feet.:) I got two sets of boots for her from a surprise baby shower that my Biblestudy girls threw me. They are SO cute and I can't wait to dress her up in them.

We started painting Britt's room yesterday! It was so fun to feel like we were actually getting her room ready. I literally CANNOT wait for her to get her - and sometimes it feels like we're missing someone when its just Eric and I in the house.
We decided to do the ceiling last minute. We felt like it would flow better. And because we were lazy and didn't want to cut the ceiling.:) Us Millers don't use painters tape - Eric swears that if you have a good brush, you don't need tape. And he's really right. A good brush and a steady hand.:)
Darby, my good friend and also a fellow College Life adult leader, came up and helped us paint. Eric and I actually just spent Saturday and Sunday down in Dallas with them going to a John Mayer concert - WAY fun. She was a doll to come help us out.

I can't wait till its all done and I can start putting her things in the room. I still need to paint her dresser - so that will need to happen sometime soon.Yes, this was the "I will conquer this room in my Darth Vadar mask" pose. This is what I look like when I paint.:) Totally stylin'.

Belly update! I really don't look that much bigger... in pictures or in person. At least I don't think so. But you know how I can tell??? I have an outie belly button, and it just keeps getting pushed out further and further and is starting to flatten hahaha. But luck for you guys, I'm not into naked belly pictures... er, I mean bare belly pictures. This is probably the last time I will wear this dress, unfortunately.

I will be 27 weeks aka basically 6 months, this Saturday, and my upcoming midwife appointment is the last monthly one I will have. Then I go to every other week. CRAZY!

Another big development in the pregnancy is that Eric and I just enrolled in the Bradley Method Class. I'm super excited!!! If you don't know about it, you can read about it here. But basically it prepares you, your husband, your body and mind for the whole birthing process. It involves the daddy A TON which I love and really helps you learn to worth with your body and the pain, as oppose to fighting it. So, we start in two weeks. SO excited!!!
