Today we had our 20 week ultrasound. Twenty weeks already! We took all three older kids with us. Unfortunately none of them were on their best behavior. It was a little stressful and hard to focus on how wonderful it was to see our sweet, anxiously awaited baby. To hear the heart beat and see the little squirms. The kids were interested for about five seconds and then ready to move on. Micah was soo squirmy. Poor Christoph had to deal with the brunt of it. And, after all that the tech couldn't determine the sex.
Emily and Katrina have been praying for the opposite sex (Emily wants a boy, Katrina wants a girl) for well over a year now. Either way one of them is going to be disappointed. It will be a good lesson about how God answers prayer and how He always knows what is best for us. However, that lesson is going to have to wait a little longer. I hope we can figure it out before the baby is born. Meeting your new
sibling for the first time is not a good time for lessons.
Despite the wiggles it was wonderful to see you little one. We are all so excited about you. Even though we are eager to meet you, I am trying to treasure every moment of this, my last foreseeable pregnancy. I love feeling you move inside of me. I love falling asleep with my arms cradling you and not have to worry about accidental suffocation. Nine months is just long enough. Stay safe and grow. Love you.
