22 Weeks: A Trip to the Zoo

BT's first trip to the zoo was yesterday and she couldn't even enjoy it! Baby's First Philanthropy was the walk at the Philadelphia Zoo for the National Kidney Foundation. Phi Sigs were out in force to support the event and it was a really fun day.

In completely other news, today is our first wedding anniversary!! This means that it was one year ago today that Ed and I took our vows to each other... and it also means we can finally get the year old cake out of our freezer. We plan to celebrate on Saturday night, but I explained to him that we each have to have at least a bite of ancient cake tonight or our marriage is destined to ruin. Either he believes in the tradition or he's afraid of questioning his hormonal, pregnant wife. But, either way, he agreed to chow down tonight.

21 Weeks: Soccer Star

Last night, the baby was kicking up a storm, which was so cool. But, even cooler... it was the first time you could feel it from the OUTSIDE!! I yelled for Ed to come on the run so he could feel her kicking. In typical Ed-fashion, he looked at me and said "How do you know she's not head butting you because she's mad that there's not a lot of room in there?"

Then, he did his impression of the way the baby looked on the ultrasound screen (how I wish I had a picture for you) and I said, "Well, darling, that's the fetal position... and she's a FETUS, so I think she's fine!"


20 Weeks: It's a Girl!!!

Ed was right! When we went to the ultrasound appointment on September 15, we found out that we're having a little baby girl! We are both so excited and I began immediately searching out cute pink outfits online.

It was fantastic to see her on the ultrasound screen. The detail is amazing - not only could we see her heart, but we could see all 4 chambers of it. We saw her organs and her tiny feet and hands and she looked just perfect. Ed now truly believes me that there is a baby in there!
