Welcome to the first blog post of the growing Wade family. We aren't just growing because we returned from an Alaskan cruise yesterday and each meal contained 5 courses. We are growing because there is a little Wade on the way, due to make his or her appearance on or around 12/23/10. This tiny bundle of joy will add itself to the long list of family members who also have a birthday the week of Christmas: mom (12/29), Grandma Cooper (12/27) and Grandma Wade (12/25).Needless to say, we are absolutely thrilled and petrified at the thought of bringing a baby into the world. We just hope and pray the Cooper-Wade genetic makeup is a fruitful one. We know with 100% certainty that this baby will have long legs and a sense of humor most satisfied by very cheesy jokes. The rest is a mystery.
So far the 'little nugget' as I like to call it has grown from being the size of a grape to a lime to a medium sized shrimp this week. We are rounding out the last few days of the first trimester, and I am feeling great. I decided to wait until the morning sickness, etc subsided before I started the blog. No one wants to read a pregnant woman's complaints. Please enjoy the first picture. We will update often.
This is grape size at 9 weeks. We are at 13.5 weeks now. Thanks for sharing in our joy. Heather and Mike
