Baby Update

Our ultrasounds appointment arrived and we couldn't have asked for a better time for a happy moment.  

Mi esposo and I have been waiting for this since we found out we were going to be blessed with a baby.  Finally, I'll be able to use the proper pronoun when talking about the baby.  I think I've entered the disgruntled phase because whenever I hear a doctor, nurse or anyone in the medical field use the term "fetus" it irritates me.  Fetus just sounds so removed from the miracle we've been given that I just want to shout and say "it’s a baby people!"

I've been so consumed with discovering the gender of the baby that it wasn't until mi esposo pointed out that this appointment will give us our first peak at our little miracle.  In my mind I had already created a little squiggly baby, with pale skin, dark eyes and dark hair so I never really thought about what the baby would actually look like and never thought I would be able to see a 3D picture.  I also didn't realize I would be able to see the baby move and see all ten fingers and toes.  In my mind, I had though the appointment would have been full of me crying buckets of tears, but with everything that has happened I think I been just about cried out and instead I stared at wonder at the little life inside of me.  I couldn't imagine that this baby was real and that it was a HE!  Yes, it’s a boy! By the way I think he may have his daddy's lips, I just wonder if he'll have his freckles too.

My sweet, adorable esposo beat me to the punch ladies and gentlemen by buying his son his first gift from us, Mom & Dad. 

Philadelphia Phillies Bib

Its very fitting that our little boy will receives such a gift from his Daddy, a die hard Phillies fan.   

It’s been said, as per pregnancy books and websites, that fathers often feel removed from the pregnancy until they feel movement from the baby or a father may not be involved until birth but I think mi esposo is already bonding with the baby and is very much involved in the pregnancy.  He was the one who bought me the “What to Expect When Your Expecting” book and has been consistently reading ahead to be prepared for the next stage and he's been the one to lay his hand on my belly to feel the slightest ripple from his son.

I can't wait for the day that we, Daddy, his little boy and me, Mommy (wow, I'm going to be Mommy) get to take our first family photo.

Congratulations! I'm so excited we will have a little boy to spoil in the family :) Though he may be forced to wear fairy wings by his cousin ...

As long as those fairy wings have a Phillies logo, we're good to go! I have to admit, as we get closer to becoming parents, I'm getting a little nervous. The ultrsound kind of made it more 'real.' Not that it wasn't real to begin with but, actually seeing images of our beautiful baby made me realize that a new person will be coming into our lives. :) Sara, I know you're going to be a great mother and I'm excited we're taking the journey of parenthood together! Love you.

Thank you darling and yes I fully expect your BB to dress up her baby cousin to suit her needs. I still have dreams that she decorates him by writing all over him with markers.

Don't be nervous you'll be fine, you've already changed diapers before right and I know you'll be a wonderful Dad!
