the big reveal.

As many of you know, today was a very big day for our little family. We had our anatomy ultrasound this morning as well as my 18 week checkup with my doctor. 

We are thrilled to report that baby is perfectly healthy and growing nice and strong. We could see all four  chambers of the heart, sweet little fingers and the most precious little nose I have ever seen. 

And of course, we also found out what this precious little baby is. That's right friends, baby nugget now has a gender...and a name. 

Introducing the newest member of the Krueger family, 

little miss Annabelle Rae

Annabelle is just a beautiful name that I fell in love with. Ray is my dad's middle name (which he goes by) and Kyle's dad's middle name is Raymond. Kyle's grandma's middle name is Rae as and it is also the name of one of Kyle's great uncles and his great grandfather. So Rae is a very special name and we love that she will cary a piece of such wonderful people with her. 

We are over the moon about our sweet baby girl and cannot wait to meet her. More than anything, we are beyond thankful that she is healthy and seems to be doing wonderfully. 

And because she is her mother's daughter, I thought it was important that we bought a special outfit on the day we found out that she is a she. This sweet, soft, perfectly pale pink Kissy Kissy onesie was our selection of the day.


Thank you all so, so much for the thoughts, prayers and well wishes today. We very much appreciate all of the love that is already being shown to this little one. 

So there you have it, friends. Annabelle Rae Krueger will be making her appearance later this fall and we are on pins and needles waiting to see her cute face!
