Baby Love

We were thrilled to have another opportunity to see our growing baby in ultrasound! It was really special that the kids were able to go with us and begin to understand a bit more about what is really happening in my belly. Their comments are priceless...
Gavin noticed right away that the baby wasn't dressed "Naked Baby! Naked Baby!" Anne Hope replied, "Baby's swimming Gavin!"
"Yeah, well when we go to get our pictures taken mom makes us wear clothes!"
I explained to Gavin that the baby doesn't have any clothes yet, but we will dress her/him after he/she is born.
"Oh! So, that is why the doctor has to be right there to quick put the clothes on the baby before anyone sees him naked."
Oh dear....

(Sorry... it is difficult to show a clear photo of an ultrasound picture, but this is a profile picture with the baby's hand up by the mouth)

I remember when we were first expecting Anne Hope I wondered how I would have enough room in my heart to love another baby as much as I loved Gavin. It didn't take long to figure out that is not a problem at all. Seeing this beautiful little one yesterday, and finally getting a profile visual, is just another way I have filled my love bank for this baby! Today I think about each movement (and kick) with new hope and purpose after yesterday's glimpse inside. Every child is his/her own unique miracle and I can't wait to meet this new babe.
