A Trip Through the Produce Section


What does a poppy seed, half a peanut, blueberry, olive, raspberry, prune, plumb, and a peach have to do with our latest & long awaited blog? They are the sizes our baby has been over the past few months!!! Most of you know by now that we are expecting our little blessing this March(or maybe not so little...is the 9 month fruit a watermelon?). With school starting....grad school starting(Ted).....our bathroom remodel(pictures & blog coming soon)...and waiting for the right pictures.....this post has been a long time coming! The picture below is our little one at about 3 months waving hello to us! I...being a big dork...waved back at the screen. It just took me by surprise. It was like our baby was goin'..."Hey there mom & dad!!!" Seeing those five little fingers blew me away!
Baby E had his/her little hand resting on it's check. So sweet!! The doctor commented on the fact that the baby is bigger than it's actual age(Shana looked at me). Then the doctor commented on how the baby's mouth was moving the whole time(Shana looked at me again). Then the baby waved at us....and Shana looked at me and commented to the doctor on how the baby was extroverted & friendly...just like daddy! Though...I do want to point out that Shana was a big baby too(we were both 9 lbs)......and she has no problem carrying on a conversation!!! ha ha I'm sure our baby will be a fun blend of us both...and have special characteristics that are all their own!!! We will find out Oct. 16th if Baby E is a Boy or Girl! HOW EXCITING!!!! We don't care one way or the other...we're just excited that the Lord has blessed us with a little one to love!! We're happy we are finally able to share our news with our blog friends!!

Aren't ultrasounds the neatest thing - that you can actually see that precious little life as s/he is growing and "ripening" (like fruit, Ted?) One word of advice - lose the watermelon concept; you don't want Shana to be having nightmares all the way til the baby arrives!!
