On July 7th, 2014, I had my 12-week check-up for Mommy + Baby B. TJ was in Haiti, so we made a girls morning + afternoon of it that included a trip to the doctor's office + a yummy lunch at McAlister's. Mommy + Grandma + GiGi + Mimi were all so excited to see sweet Baby B + hear the precious sound of his/her heartbeat. Everything was right along schedule, and the doctor said that B is growing just as he/she should be! We took a picture of the ultrasound + recorded the heartbeat so that Daddy could see + hear it when he got home, too, and he was on cloud nine!
At lunch, we talked about all-things baby, and all the grandmommies-to-be confessed that they didn't know how they were going to wait another nine days before spilling the news now that they'd really experienced Baby B for the first time! It filled my heart with so much joy to hear them chat about planning baby showers + their gender predictions + how much they can't wait to start spoiling him/her. It was the perfect morning, weather and all, and I can hardly way for our next outing. Next time, Auntie Mel + Aunt Nik Nik + Aunt Cannie Ree will most definitely join in on the fun, and that will only add to the blessings!
