I love online depictions of babies
What Melissa neglected to show you was this illustration she found of a baby at 19 weeks. I cannot let this pass without sharing...
If our baby can do that, we've got an Olympic Gold Medal in our future. Seriously, I don't think I will be a "high pressure" parent, but I'm just saying... if you've got a kid with special abilities, you've got to aim high!
Missing belly band alert!
We had a crisis yesterday, Melissa couldn't find her tan belly band! Oh my soul, this is bad news! The girl's pants are going to fall down!
Speaking of belly bands, I think I like the idea. I like the idea of being able to walk around with your pants unbuttoned. Then I realized that for girls, it works because you don't really tuck in your shirts and that in order for me to wear one, I'd have to put it over my tucked in dress shirt - it might be a trend that I do not want to start.
If anyone has seen a tan belly band, please contact Melissa, she's the one with sagging pants.
So I think I've got great hearing. I'm pretty sure that I am going to be able to hear the baby before Melissa feels it. Probably not, but that doesn't stop me from listening to her stomach every night. I end up just hearing my own heartbeat and Melissa's dinner, but it's worth a shot. Something great about watching Modern Family sideways with your ear on your wife's stomach. Awesome!
That's it for now - just a couple of weeks and we find out if "it's" a he or she!
