Welcome to the Gates family blog! We have gone public with our big announcement and wanted a place to keep family and friends informed and up-to-date on the happening of Baby Gates, and us too!

Second Trimester
As of today we are 13weeks and 3 days, which officially starts the second trimester! I'm finally starting to feel "good." Baby G is about 2.5-3 inches long this week, weighing in at about a half an ounce! Baby G is growing big though, this week he/she is the size of a peach! Baby's G's face is starting to even look humanlike. All of our baby's vital organs are developing, including the heart. At our doctor's appointment last week we got to listen to the heartbeat. Let me tell you, it is the most amazing sound there ever was. Our little one's heart was beating strong at 160 beats per minute! That definately made things more real!

We've started looking into "necessities" that we'll need once baby comes! Thank goodness it's garage sale season! We've found some great deals! My mom and I also found the cutest fabric that we are going to use to make the crib bedding and use to cover our rocking chair (a garage sale find!)!

Tim and I are so looking forward to meeting this little person! Only 6 more months to go until November 8!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for the latest in baby G news!
