Matt and I had our 20 week ultrasound last week, and I think it is safe to say that we are both completely and utterly smitten by this little life inside of me. The baby did not stop moving the entire time, to the point that the ultrasound technician told us that she is worried for us when this child reaches two years of age...judging from my childhood antics this is not surprising. In fact...I think I can hear my mom laughing from here.
What's that Mom? I deserve this wild little dervish for all the times you had to pull a toad out of my jeans pocket? Probably true.
We learned that our little Sweet Pea is on the big side(but developing perfectly)...already over 1 pound! We have made the decision not to find out the sex of the baby until he or she makes his/her way into this world in November.
As I looked at this precious profile I couldn't help but be overcome with questions. Boy? Girl? Will the baby have Matt's endless brown eyes? Or my light blue ones? His straight hair, or my curls? Will (s)he be tall and slim like Daddy? Will the baby have my dimple?
Despite all the questions that have yet to be answered, I still can't help but pull my ultrasound pictures out of my purse (yes I carry them in my purse) and stare at the most beautiful person I have never seen.
As you may or may not have noticed, I have added a new poll to my website, where you can weigh in on whether you think I am having a boy or a girl. Feel free to ask me any questions that you feel will help...for example...I am carrying low and I crave mostly salty stuff.
