First, a heartfelt thank-you for all your darling comments and well wishes on our baby announcement (and on my twinkie's blog). Our mini me is already loved by so many and nothing makes this mama-to-be happier! ♥
I didn't know what to expect at our first appointment. Everything I had read said to expect a lot of paperwork and for it to be your longest one. I didn't think we'd have an ultrasound that early so it was such a sweet surreal and emotional surprise that i got to "meet" my baby.
My legs were shaking and tears welled up in my eyes when i saw my little "kidney bean" on the screen. There is nothing like hearing your baby's heartbeat for the first time.
At 8 weeks, that's when i first fell in love.
ps. i realize these things are hard to make out... Baby Maxham head is at the top and it's body is curved (like baby's on it's side) and that little nub in the middle is his/her hand.
also! for those of you who've asked, we don't know what we're having just yet. We find out on April 24th and yes! we want to know. ;) i'm pretty sure baby will feel my butterflies until then.
