Gerlach 2.0

As many of you may know, we're pregnant! We found out in mid-December and have been waiting until our first doctor appointment to announce it to the world via the blog. Baby #2 is due August 20, 2007 and Addie's 9 weeks along. We got to see a live shot of him/her at the appointment today, and s/he's healthy and normal. The little heart was beating away at a perfect pace. Here's approximately what s/he may look like now.
He/she is about the size of a medium green olive and most of his organs are formed as are his body parts like hands and feet. His eyelids are fused shut and will remain that way until about 30 weeks. Aside from making Mom a bit tired, she's been feeling pretty good. A month ago however, this wasn't the case. Thank goodness that's over! God is an awesome artist and we can't wait to meet our little baby this summer.
