Share and share alike

So we're hoping this blog becomes a way of keeping all our family and friends updated about the excitement that comes with our newfound roles of "Parents-to-Be." I'd like to think of this blog in terms of the illustration below (which just cracks me up!).

I WILL be commenting on all the warm, fuzzy, "oh, how cute!" moments of our journey toward becoming parents; and I promise that I WON'T share all the behind-the-scenes, nitty-gritty details that pregnancy has to offer. Which means, frankly, you'll be missing out .... on a lot! Cause so far, this has been the craziest ride I've ever been on, and we've got a LONG way to go!

In all honesty, though, things have been going well. We got to hear the heartbeat at 12 weeks, and Baby M was clocking in around 147-150 bpm. For those of you who didn't get to see the 8 week ultrasound, here is our first pic of Baby M. We will have another ultrasound done in about 8 weeks. So more pics to come!

And for visualization purposes, Baby M was about the size of a raspberry in the above ultrasound picture, and now he/she is the size of a peach. Not a gigantic, hormone-injected peach, but a peach that's smaller than a lemon (that's next week!), yet bigger than a plum.

Hopefully I haven't already broken my promise to not share too much info :) In any case, remember to check back often for updates! Belly pics to come .... when I have something to show. Right now, it just looks like I ate a dozen donuts, which I could totally go for. Oh how I love Dunkin Donuts Munchkins ....

Congratulations to you both!!! You are lucky I am no longer in town, for you would be giving me yet another reason to stop at Dunkin Donuts on the way to work.

I'm looking forward to hearing all about your "journey" to parenthood.

Yay!! I am so excited about the human pooper!! I love how JebaDelilah is being compared to fruit so much too! Anyway I can't wait to hear all about the pregnancy stuff and meet my very first grand best friend (I have determined that will be our relation since Jer is my best friend-in-law :) I feel grand best friend is the best choice)
Love ya guys!

Contratulations! We are so happy for you two. Patty and the kids are thrilled and send their best. Kevin is especially happy that the world will have another February birthday. (It's all about Kevin!)

I'm glad you mentioned that Manny and Olivia are in the dark. I might have spilled the beans. But I'm sure they'll do fine.

I look forward to the updates.
