bAbY hEaRtBeAt AnD bAbY kIcKs!

Hello Everyone! We hope this message finds you all well...
It has been awhile since our last blog entry and so much has happened!

Baby bean at 18 weeks!

We have been able to see our little one a few times now. The first time we were able to see our little bean was amazing...we felt that this was for real and not just a dream we were having! Our little bean literally looked like a kidney bean with a little flicker...the heartbeat!!

And then....
Our Kidney Bean has Arms and Legs!! Our second ultrasound was a huge surprise...this little bean transformed into a little person, with arms and legs! Chris and I just stared at the screen as this little person bounced all over, moving it's teeny tiny arms and legs and then...WAVED AT US! Well, we would like to believe that it was a wave. We had so much fun watching this amazing event that Chris asked if we could take the ultrasound machine home with us! hee hee...

And now...
Baby is 19 weeks old and I can feel little flutters, or baby movements, inside. I just LOVE IT!!!! Every moment of this journey has been and continues to be amazing!! We are so blessed that baby is doing well with lots of healthy growth inside!!
We are thinking of you all and we will keep in touch!!
Love and Hugs...The Ekern family
