It's a GIRL!

Today we received the greatest news ever... we are having a little GIRL! Words cannot express our happiness and excitement! Since I was 15 years old I thought that I was going to have a little boy first, but now I am so excited that I get to have a sweet little mini-me first! This past semester has been filled with countless blessings, and also a lack of time to do much of anything else, like blog! So here is the Andersen update for the last four months...
This is Tyler in one of his favorite positions, studying! He is balancing 17 credits and two jobs, which will turn into 18 credits and two jobs next semester, along with taking care of a very pregnant wife who has crazy cravings all the time! He is SUCH a hard worker and is doing so good in everything he is involved with right now. He is also very much in love with his new computer!

I promised my mom that I would get a picture of me in the rocking chair my parents got me for my birthday! It is my favorite spot to be in our whole house! I love being able to come home and relax after a long day with school, work and my calling as RS president! It will also be super nice when the baby comes! Sometimes I think Tyler loves the rocking chair more than I do because I seem to find him in it more often!
Here is my VERY first belly profile picture. I have waited so long because I have not had much of a belly until recently. You can kind of tell in this picture that I have a little baby bump, but not much of one yet!Here is Tyler showing off his baby bump! He has gained just a little bit of sympathy weight during this pregnancy! It does not help that all I have been craving the last four months has been Little Caesar's pizza and Reese's' Peanut Butter Cups!

Last but not least, here is our little Leah Lou Andersen! I thought it would be better to show her better half off first! This was the first picture we got of our little girl! If you can't tell, this is a picture of Leah spreading her legs wide a part so we could see there was no little "Dink" between those legs! Just to make sure we had the nurses show us her little ovaries! I did not want to have a little "Turkey Timer" pop out a couple months down the road when we are about to invest in a LOT of pink things! And finally, here is our little Leah's profile! She has big lips like her daddy, and it looks like she has my nose, but who knows until we actually get to meet her on August 20th! It was so amazing to be able to sit and watch our little baby move around today and to see how well she is developing! I feel so blessed to be able to create such a beautiful being and to become a mother! It is such a privilege to bear children, and I am so thankful to our loving Heavenly Father who has given us such amazing abilities as women! I can't wait to have my sweet little girl here and I can't wait to become a mother!


  1. Love the update!! All three of you look great! We are so excited for you guys to be parents. We love you!!!

  2. SOOO cute! How smart of you to ask to see the ovaries...I remember asking, "he's a boy, right!?" before they took Nathan away to check his heart...that's the only thing that bugged me about that darn c-section drape...I didn't get to see him! We had a room full of blue and green and I didn't want to have to re-buy everything!! I'll have to remember that one day when we're doing the pregnancy thing again! You have such a cute bump! Can you feel her move yet? I couldn't at my "gender-checker" ultrasound but I had friends who could.

  3. We are so happy for you and cannot wait to meet little Leah. I can already tell that she will be beautiful.

  4. We are so excited for you and can't wait to see Leah. Good luck with the rest of the pregancy, don't worry about the bump it will come, and then you'll wish it was smaller. Use a backbrace if you need one especially the last trimester. she looks beautiful, kids sure teach us a lot of things, you'll find out. You'll be a great mother!

  5. I can't believe it has take me so long to see your Blog! What great pictures and commentary of your MANY Blessings! We are thrilled about having Leah join our family in awhile!! And thank your for the picture of your sitting in your rocking chair, Kacey--we just want our beautiful daughter to have some comfort before the baby is born. Love you guys and miss you so much!
