|November 11, 2004: Allow me to introduce myself Ė of course, to do that, I might need a name. Uncle Mark suggested R.A.D.I.O. (Rebecca And Daveís Infant On-the-way). That works for me. Of course, it wouldnít hurt to know if Iím a boy or a girl. But, I donít know those things yet. All I know is that Iím only a couple inches long and 11 weeks old and that my birthday should be at the end of May.
Today was a big day Ė Mom and Dad went to Momís 3rd doctor appointment to hear my heartbeat. The doctor said it was normal that they didnít get to hear it at this stage, but sent us to get a sonogram to feel more secure. As soon as Mom got hooked up to the machine, I kicked into action, squirming away to assure my parents that I was okay. I posed for the two shots you see at the right.
It's hard to see, but in the bottom picture, I have my right arm up to my eye while in the first one Iím kicked back taking a nap. Pretty exciting! Iím on the way and growing all the time!
|December 25, 2004: Well, I thought long and hard about what to give Mom for a Christmas present. After all, sheís already gone through a heck of a lot of work for me. I decided to let her feel me kick for the first time on Christmas morning. Oh sure, getting kicked may not sound like a great gift, but what do you expect? I canít exactly go shopping.|
|January 12, 2005: Today Mom and Dad got to see more pictures of me. The big excitement, though, was that this time my big brother Evan came along as well. He liked seeing me on the TV. Of course, he wanted to watch Pooh.|
|The biggest news was that Mom surprised Dad by deciding to find out if I was a boy or a girl. Dad wanted to know, but Mom didnít. If youíd like to guess if you think Iím a boy or a girl, just hover the mouse over one of the buttons below.|
January Ė March 2005:
Here are photos of Mom at five, six, and seven months pregnant. As you can see in the 7 month shot, my big brother is experiencing ďsympathy pregnancyĒ and trying to grasp what it is like to have an ever-expanding tummy.
