Our Little One!

What an incredible experience it was to see a baby moving inside of me!!!! It was SO cool - watching the heart beat, seeing those little legs move up and down, watch the mouth move and then sucking its thumb, then watching this little one move it's hands and arms around and open and close its fingers and then point! It was totally amazing! I was in awe and I know Jonathan was too. It was almost surreal (that is until I remembered how badly I had to go to the bathroom!!!).
We are totally in love with this little one. We both can't wait to meet it and we've recently started talking lots to the baby. It still feels so weird some days to think we are going to be parents. Some days I honestly don't feel old enough yet! But I can't wait. I can't wait to hold this babe and kiss it and cuddle it and feed it and watch Jonathan be a daddy. And I know I'm gonna cry when I see the baby for the first time. I tear up just thinking about it. So many changes coming our way, so many new experiences and I know there will be lots of frustrations too but still, I can't wait.
For now though, we're savoring time together (like a date at the mall after the ultrasound yesterday), we're enjoying sleeping in and the peace and quiet, we're enjoying taking off for the weekend and coming home whenever we feel like it and I'm enjoying being pregnant, knowing that too soon it will be a distant memory.
Oh and I should add, we didn't find out what we are having. We want it to be a surprise!

Awwww! What you wrote is so sweet. I think you should start little Junior/ette's baby book with it. And how sweet that you're going to be surprised! I love that!

By the way - you and your sister look like twins in that shot below. And great photo shoot, too!

So cool! What an amazing experience for you and Jonathan. I'm so glad he went with you. I can imagine the sureal feeling of being pregnant and having a baby. You both will be amazing parents, and I can't wait to be an aunt to my neice or nephew.
Big hugs.

Now how come no one told me to take a picture of the screen. It looks so real from the screen (or maybe it's 3-D ultrasound). Too bad you can't go back in time.

The journalling is fabulous and I can totally relate when I was expecting Micah. Enjoy your time alone now!!

I remember feeling that way with all of my ultrasounds... completely amazed!!

Take advantage of the time you have left as a couple - it will be a distant memory in a few years - and sleeping in? forget about it! :)
