We are in love - the three of us together with who you are, precious baby! Isabelle could not wait to go to the doctor today. She wanted to meet you, "baby bruder". I told her we can't see you yet, but we will hear your sweet heart beating.
In the video the midwife says regarding the heartbeat, "Man, that's nice and strong." Aron was quite proud, and on the way out commented, "Yeah, that baby's heartbeat was much slower than I remember Belle's being. It sounded like a boy's heart. A strong boy, like his daddy." We'll see about that. I was just grateful to hear it.
Turns out I am 11 weeks today.
Precious baby is swallowing and swimming already. There are nails on those tiny fingers on baby's little 1 1/2 inch long body. Can you even imagine? The details blow my mind. My cousin, Kim, sent me an email saying, " 'From the mouths of children and infants come praise ordained by God.' Your little babe is praising God with his/her every little heartbeat. That is so awesome!" And that is exactly what I felt when I heard that little swoosh swoosh. What a miracle God has allowed us to participate in. I feel so humbled to be given the opportunity to carry this child.
