Little Baby Wade has officially reached the 2nd trimester, and she/he is the size of a lemon this week. Mike and I get a real kick out of the weekly updates from babycenter.com where they compare the size of the baby to a fruit. We plan to purchase said fruit each week and take a picture next to my growing abdomen. This may have been harder a few weeks ago when we were the size of a kumquat (where does one find a kumquat?), but lemons, mangos, avocados etc should be a piece of cake. I am not showing at all yet, but I am sure it will sneak up on me one of these days.
I apologize for my very white skin. I didn't realize how pale I was until Mike took this picture this morning before work. Mike says we are so white that aliens could spot us from outerspace. You have to understand, it's been 272 days since the city of Seattle has seen 75 degree weather, let alone the sun. Praise God for Vitamin D supplements.
In other news, we had a fantastic report from the OB this week. Baby Wade's heartbeat is strong and steady at 150bpm. What a beautiful sound to our ears! The OB said, "Now, that's a good little tyke". Therefore, we are upgrading from Little Nugget (which Mike wasn't really a fan of) to Little Tyke. We are thrilled beyond belief, and we can't believe all that God has in store for this little one. Thanks for tuning in.
When life gives you lemons, make a baby. Love, Mike and Heather and Little Tyke
