Dear Baby--12 Weeks

Dear Baby,

What a week you've had, my love! {I should say what a week your worrying mom has had. You, I'm sure, are comfy and cozy and growing big and strong.}

First thing's first--We just got the results of the NT scan. Normal! Thank you, God! The appointment was actually on March 12th, but because the person who uploads the reports and pictures has not been in the office, we did not hear until THIS morning. That's 5 days after the actual appointment! I was a worrying mess, but feel such a wave of relief to know that the scan was normal and that you are growing and measuring right on track. I can't wait to see the pictures and I'm so thankful to receive wonderful news. And this little stretch taught me a lot about trust. This pregnancy is different, and our baby knows what to do. A's body knows what to do. God knows what He's doing.

Thank you to all of our friends who have been praying for us! Those powerful prayers are working and we ask you to continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we continue through the journey to meeting our little love.

So, a lot's happening this week! You are 12 weeks, 6 days (13 weeks tomorrow--YAY!) and this week you are the size of a lime. Your vocal chords are developing and so are your reflexes. I know it will be the sweetest sound when we hear your voice for the first time! Your fingers can open and close, your toes will curl, your eye muscles will clench and your mouth can make sucking movements. Your eyes have moved from the side to the to front of your head and your ears are right where they should be. You are our miracle.

This week was also a big week for your daddy. He turned 34 on Saturday and ran his first half marathon on Sunday. He did an AMAZING job. {His shirt says We Run Mum. That's for you!}

 About to cross the Finish Line!
 After the Race. So proud of him!
Spring begins on Friday! I brought home tulips to celebrate. Excited to move into this new season!

Keep growing big and strong, my sweet. We are so proud of you, and we love you so, dear baby.
Mommy and Daddy
