I'm Growing!

Saturday, September 06, 2008

Sam and I did a little shopping for baby last night. These are the very first items we bought. Raffe is baby's first toy from his mama and daddy.

Junior Crane Operator- perfect for when Sam takes baby to Blue Star!

We're Having a...
Well, you decide! Look at the third picture and you can tell what we're having! We had our second OB appointment today and we were thrilled when we saw what we're having! The ultrasound tech said they can't really tell the sex until I'm 20 weeks along but off the record the ultrasound showed us what we're going to be blessed with in late March! I'm 11 weeks 1 day today and I can't believe how fast the baby has grown since our first ultrasound at 6 weeks 5 days. I had to have an ultrasound so early because of complications from antibiotics called C-Diff (google it to find out what it is- but my advice is to stay away from antibiotics). I've been very ill since early July but after this round of "good" antibiotics I hope to be well very soon! Thanks for praying for me!
I was a nervous wreck before the appointment thinking that something might not be right with the baby since I've been on a very strong antibiotic for the past three weeks. But when we saw the baby- the ultrasound tech said baby was healthy and developing wonderfully- this was music to our ears. Sam really enjoyed seeing the baby- he was grinning from ear to ear the whole time and couldn't stop commenting on all of baby's little tiny features. The Lord has truly had a hand of protection over the baby- its been a fighter since its mama's been so sick- proving it to be 100% LEVINER!

"Life's most precious moments begin...
When a baby captures your heart.
For all the wonder now and
the wondrous days to come".
