I am so excited to be writing this post! I haven’t had too much free time lately, but today has been a bit of a lazy Sunday and I have caught up on my chores.
Let me be the first to announce that I believe you are a girl. Your Mother insists you’re a boy, but so far I have guessed correctly on your brother Emerson and your sister Arden (while your Mother is 0-2). I have felt this way ever since we first discovered you were brewing, but this weekend I did refer to you as a “he” once. I am not sure if this is a sign that I may be wrong or if it was just a slip-up. I guess we will see during the second week of December.
Your Mother and I discovered we were pregnant quite a while ago but decided not to tell anyone until after our first doctor’s appointment on week 10. Ever since, your Mother has been preparing. We’ve decided that you should have your own room (at least for now) and perhaps it would be best for Emerson and Arden to share a room for a bit. In preparation of that we started working with Arden to get her out of the crib. Thankfully this transition didn’t take long. She now has a “big girl bed” and the crib is all free for you. We have also purchased a new car seat that works with you Mother’s favorite stroller.
So far both of your doctor’s appointments have gone well. On the first we had a sonogram, which is always amazing. We got to see you wiggle around but my favorite part is always to watch your heart beat. You are due April 21st, 2015. I think you will come a bit early, but hopefully not too early. The second appointment went well, except for the 45 minute delay. We didn’t have a sonogram, but we did get to listen to your heart beat. Normally the heart beat is difficult to find, but the nurse found yours nearly instantly.
Each Tuesday we take your Mother’s picture so that we can see how you both are growing. Check out those pictures after you read this post. Other than that there isn’t too much going on. We have our third appointment coming up on November 11th. I will fill you in on how that appointment goes.
