Mom to the sonogram

How could I leave this part out? Mom (Beebe) went with me to see Dr. Strickland and Connie today. It was such a treat. She waited patiently, listened and let me ramble to the nurses. I hope my banter wasn't too embarrassing. I tell people all the time, "I shouldn't have said that. My mom did raise me better!" Now dad, that's another story. Not really, but you can definitely get away with more if it's just dad in the room! Mom and dad are both phenomenal role models and Jarrett and I are THRILLED that they're so close (Jarrett's parents are close too--more great role models!).
So, mom got to see Baby B before Jarrett, bless his heart. He's in Ohio for work. She took good care of Jarrett's interest though (I think she likes him more than me sometimes. It runs in the family. Nannie is that way about dad!). We made sure to leave with all of the baby's images on a dvd. I got them attached to an email and off to Daddy J as soon as I could.

No more lima bean

It's been a while since I've been able to write . . . and a while since we've gotten a glimpse of Baby B. We got our first look in a long time today. I was kind of freaked out or maybe in shock. There is no more lima bean in my belly. There is a face and arms and legs. . . Baby B was sucking his/her thumb and got the hiccups! Oh my goodness. I think it finally hit home that I'm pregnant. There is someone growing in me. It's way surreal. And I don't mean any disrespect when I say it freaked me out. I'm just nervous about being a mom. Is God sure He wants to do this!? Just kidding. I know He's got the master plan. That's why I've quit worrying about school. Jay's sermon Sunday helped me realize that challenges make us stronger and we learn from them. I'm excited to see what Jarrett and I learn as we add a baby to the school/work mix. I had it easy last school year. It's time to step up to the plate. I'm thankful we have family in Brunswick to help us with this challenge too.
