Hey Baby! We had another checkup yesterday, and got to hear your heartbeat again!  It was so much stronger and louder this time than last time.  You are getting so big that you are starting to push my uterus (your home for now) further up my body.  I’ve started to […]

To my Son or Daughter, Whilst I eagerly await your arrival and already love you more than anything… I’m not as much excited about what you are doing to your mother. I’m not sure who first termed the phrase, “bundle of joy”, but I’m sure they were misquoted. They certainly meant, bundle […]

With love, Dad

Last week we got to actually hear the heartbeat for the first time.  I have to say, the best part was looking over at Will when we heard it and seeing tears in his eyes.  He is going to be the best father I could ever imagine. Here’s the quick […]

Dear Little One, Today (November 9th, 2011), your Daddy and I found out that we were pregnant with you!  It was so exciting!  We set a timer to check the pregnancy test, and when it beeped we checked together.  When we saw those 2 lines, I said “It’s positive!!”  And […]
