I've Seen Brooklyn!

Yesterday morning was one of the single most amazing events I have ever experienced in my life. Loni invited me to go to her 36 week doctor appointment with them as a 4-D Ultrasound was scheduled. Seeing Brooklyn on the screen moving around, hearing her heartbeat, seeing those beautiful chubby little cheeks, watching her breathe - it literally took my breath away and brought tears to my eyes. There are times that we take all the modern medical technology for granted and truly it is a miracle. I called Keith afterwards and was describing Brooklyn's cheeks and his comment was that the fact that I'm able to describe to him what she looks like before she's born is unbelievable.

Right now she weighs 7 lbs 10 oz and they will induce labor on July 18 if she doesn't come earlier. Have I mentioned just how excited I am to hold this little princess? And now I'm also looking forward to kissing on those little cheeks of hers. She really is beautiful. :)

Congrats! How exciting for you and how wonderful that they invited you to come along!

Can't wait to see the pictures when she arrives and hear the nana brags over on LSSK!

WOW! Are they able to video those so that you can watch them over and over or is it a one time thing? Very cool. I was tearing up just reading about it, I can't imagine being there.

Come on July 18!!

July 18 has special significance for me so I am utterly delighted!
