And it Begins...
Either way, we're thrilled to have been given this amazing gift of a baby! At 8 weeks along, I'm told it is the size of a Kidney Bean. So naturally, right now I'm lost in day dreams of a Kidney Bean Baby with my eyes, its daddy's curly hair and adorable olive skin (yes, somehow the two palest people on the planet create a tan little offspring, just go with it.) Either way, I don't think we can go wrong, we were pretty cute babies.
While I know the baby will be the perfect combination of the two of us, my real hopes spring deeper than looks. I hope it will have my artistic ability and appreciate the beauty all around. I hope it's as smart as, or smarter, than Jarod. I hope it feels love from both its parents, its grandparents and all who surround it every day of its life. I hope its healthy and happy on its birthday, in a 10 fingers, 10 toes and all smiles, kind of way. I hope as it grows and learns from us, we take the time to grow and learn from it. Most of all, I hope it loves to laugh as much as its Mommy and Daddy do! This is a new world for us, so check in often. I'll be posting ultrasound updates, belly bump pictures, nursery designing and more!
