12 Weeks

Today, I am grateful that our second little one was hiding out and the Dr. was forced to give us an ultrasound. I'm even more grateful that everything is okay, because it was definitely scary to not hear the heartbeat through the doppler. I thought for sure it would be easy by twelve weeks, so I was more than surprised and caught off guard. But God has an amazing way of making small worries turn into big rewards...because this was the coolest ultrasound!

The ultrasound tech was even excited to get me on the table because she said no one ever gets a twelve week ultrasound and they are by far the coolest. You can see EVERY feature of that little life and they still have lots of room to wiggle and move like crazy so it's completely entertaining! Our little one is so, so very active, it took quite awhile for her to "catch" the baby long enough to capture the heartbeat, and as it was, she only got a partial image across the screen before baby was off and moving again. But we did see it and got to hear it and the heart was beating at a fast and strong 175! WOW!

It was so awesome to see all the little human features...head, torso, spine, heart, legs, arms, facial structure, fingers, and toes. So very tiny! If any Mom ever thinks there's not a little life in there at this stage, I have news for them, that baby is alive and well...a tiny little angel! I was so in love with the image we saw on the screen today, just amazing!! Baby waved a couple times at us and flexed it's little legs about. So precious!

When the tech went in for the heartbeat, the baby started crawling and reaching for the top of my uterus, obviously trying to run away from the crazy weapon that was trying to push is out of its comfy place....and to be honest, I don't blame baby, I'm not real fond of that thing either! HA

But, at any rate, it was an awesome, awesome experience I got to share with my Mom. The images we have below are so great, although they don't do justice to watching the movements, for twelve weeks, they are beyond amazing!

What a little Stud!

Noah was the cutest little ring bearer in the Kiko wedding this past weekend. He and another little boy (who was a little older and much better behaved -- he walked down the aisle with dignity and poise -- Noah's experience, however, is noted below) were asked to be a part of the couple's big day and we felt so blessed to have him share in their joyous occasion! And he looked like the most handsome little guy in the World! After seeing him in his little tux, I have to say, two boys sounds pretty good, I was very proud of both my boys this weekend as Tony was the officiating minister as well, it was a celebration to remember!

One last burst of energy! Noah continued this trend when he came down the aisle full blast yelling something about a racecar, I think. He actually chased the last bridesmaid about halfway down the aisle, but she played it off really well. There was no stopping him! And when he reached the end of the aisle runner at the bottom of the first step, he set the pillow on the ground with authority, turned around and looked at the audience, and just sighed and grinned a huge grin. It was hilarious! He was about to take off back up the aisle when he saw me coming for him since he clearly was enjoying his moment in the spotlight. I was forced to do a lunging Mommy-snag and grab him by the suitcoat to keep him and I from both running back up the center aisle. Everyone laughed, it was just what the couple was hoping for, a little something to break the ice, and it definitely did!

Ornery Grin!

My boys!
