Today, we laid eyes on a very special person, the one growing in my belly. The one making me smile and giggle uncontrollably. The one that made me give up lunchmeat. The one we love so very much.
We met Baby Manca during his/her first photo shoot. Like any celebrity, he/she put his/her hands up as if to say, "stop, no wait...take it from this angle."
The ultrasound went really well! We saw the heartbeat which was normal beats/minute. Mark and I also saw the baby kick and wave it's arms. It even reclined his/her little head back - totally relaxing. Baby Manca is roughly the size of an avocado - about 3 inches in length.
We can't wait to see the baby in color, in another 6 months. Baby Manca is due June 1, 2009. Welcome Baby Manca to the family!
