The heartbeat

Well on Thursday we heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time. It was too early for my first appointment so we had to wait till the 12 week appointment. It was a strong heartbeat but the baby moved a lot so the doctor was having a problem keeping it on the doppler. Carolyn's reaction was less than impressive. I guess I shouldn't have expected a "Wow mommy that's the baby" moment but I was. I mean she's 18 months and kiss my tummy already but I'm not sure she's kissing the tummy because she knows there is a baby inside or it's mommy's tummy. I'm leaning toward the latter. Regardless she had a look of concern watching me lay on the table to hear the heartbeat...so at least she's protective. Just a quick update.

So very cool. I always loved hearing that heartbeat for the first time.

Amy came home from Riley Days and was so excited that she saw you. She said Carolyn just smiled at her and seemed happy to see her.

We miss you guys. It was good to see Evan at the golf tourney today.

Love you.
