Dear Baby 2

Dear Baby,

Today, September 27th, 2012, we saw you for the first time! You’re a teeny, tiny peanut with a super strong heartbeat. And you know who teared up the first time they laid eyes on you? Your daddy. I did, too, but watching him get choked up was about the sweetest thing ever.

No. I take that back. Seeing you was the sweetest thing ever. But he came in a close second.

There you are!
That dark circle is your gestational sac, and the white little bubble is your yolk sac, which gives you nutrients.
As for you? You’re somewhere right in there with the yolk sac! Too small for me to point out yet, but, baby, your heartbeat was strong! Watching your heart beat was one of the most amazing experience of my life.

According to the technician, I’m six weeks and four days pregnant–and your birthday will be May 19, 2013!! And you know what, baby? I can’t WAIT. Neither can your dad. Sometimes I think he’s even more excited than I am–but then I realize how crazy that sounds. It’s not possible. (Seriously though, not even seven weeks along yet, and he’s ready to announce your existence to the entire world!)

So right now, your nose, mouth, and ears are beginning to take shape! There are dark spots in your head, where your eyes and nostrils are forming, and your ears are small dents in the sides of your head. And your lungs are starting to develop, too!

You’re about a quarter of an inch long. Still so, so tiny! The size of a sweet pea! And that’s, of course, what you are. Our little sweet pea!

your mom-to-be
