Our doctor's appointment went really well today-yippee! He told us he would try to listen for the heartbeat but at 11 weeks it is sometimes hard to hear so not to worry if we don't hear it. I was thinking, "don't worry?!!?" He then continued with, "but if we don't hear it, we'll do an ultrasound. We won't let you leave without reassuring you." *whew* However, as soon as he put the thing on me, we heard the heartbeat! We even heard a couple of "blips" which he said was the baby moving. Yea! Everything is going great! I'll go back at 16 weeks for the "big" ultrasound. With the girls, we didn't find out what we were having. This time, we're getting quite a bit of pressure from friends to find out. We can't decide. The suspense at delivery of not knowing is so fun!
Gracie came home from school today with the cutest Christmas book. She wrote about her favorite Christmas tradition, a Christmas memory, and her favorite time of the year. I love that she did this; this is the kind of thing I will treasure forever!
On the 2nd day of Christmas, their daddy gave to them one small wooden tic-tac-toe game and one wooden airplane. Gracie is writing a letter to a friend right now on her stationery from yesterday, and Katie wore her Spiderman watch to the recital tonight. Gracie=pearls. Katie=Spiderman watch. Yep. That's my 2 girls!
