I haven’t been in much of a blogging mood as of late. The urge comes and goes. But still, one must keep one’s public updated on a fairly regular basis. All is good here. Liam continues to grow and amaze us daily; he’s just starting a two week vacation from school, so he and I will be getting out a lot in the next few weeks and seeing the world. Maybe we’ll even share some of what we see with you!
One piece of big news that I’ll just touch on here is that we have decided to homeschool our kids. When Liam finishes this year’s maternelle, that will be the end of public education for our family. But that matter requires it’s own post, and I’m not prepared to write it just yet.
The OTHER big news, the one I am prepared to write about, is about the baby. We just had our four month checkup. This was a huge hurdle for me, and I suspect for Jesse as well. Sure, everything seemed fine; but, then, everything seemed fine with Isaiah as well. I’ve spent a lot of the last week or two being paranoid and remembering. Thankfully, we are very pleased to announce that we once again saw a very frollicking, heart-beating baby on the ultrasound screen. Everything seems right on track, and we both breathed a huge sigh of relief.
This should be pretty self-explanatory. Big head, spine, belly, legs drawn up. If you know what you are looking at you can see fingers at the bottom. The “X” in the middle of the body is pinpointing a thriving heart.
We’re both pretty excited about that. Now the name game begins. We had a girl’s name picked out, but somehow I don’t think it’ll suit junior. We’ll let you know what we come up with.
