"And there's your little visitor!"
That's what our doctor told us as this image popped up on the screen. She added in the little 'Hi Mom & Dad!' which was totally awesome! This is a front view-- the head is at the top and the baby is looking right at us.
What? All you see is funny looking lines in a black & white maze? You don't see our child's good looks & beautiful skin tone?
Here, I'll make it a little easier for you:
Get it now? :) Thought that might help a little. For those of you that don't have kids yet, it's funny how clearly you can see your child in your own ultrasound. I can look at others & be so confused on what is what, but when I look at this, I see our little kid staring back at us, clear as day.
Oh, and the best part? The heartbeat. This is just insane.
In other news, little bit is about the size of an olive this week... or a grape, as I prefer, because I dislike olives. All the essential body parts are accounted for, and the tail is gone! Oh, and guess who is getting some teeth? This little one!
Just like everyone said it would be, it was a pretty awesome moment when we saw our little one for the first time. So many fears were calmed, and it was pretty surreal to realize that there is actually a small kid in there & it's ours! When we first got married, we often looked at each other and said, "Who let us get married?" because for the first time, we were truly on our own together. This felt a lot the same. It was great.
