The beginning of life

We had our first ultrasound on Saturday. Well, the first one where we were allowed to see anything that is. And what we saw was truly amazing. A heartbeat.

Not only that, but a head and a body that held that heartbeat. My mom and husband by my side, we saw a new life beginning inside me. Incredible.

I've taken to dry heaving in the mornings (TMI, I know, I know), afraid that I'm hurting the baby I wretch so violently. I still can't get enough sleep and I am still cramping which scares me everyday. I think this is beginning to feel more real to me. I just hope our little person hangs on so we can see he/she in about 7 months.

Clothes are getting tighter around the middle now. Which is scary because I'm only around 9 or 10 wks. pg...hard for an already heavy person to stand. But it's all completely worth it. If this is the only baby we're blessed with, I'm going to relish every part of it and take it all in.

It's 6:30 now and I'm already counting the hours until bed. This night owl just retired I think. That's pretty sad, what a party pooper I am!

In non-baby news (you didn't think there was anything else, did you?) I think that my cats must know something is happening because they are acting so odd, even for them. Our one cat, Daisy has taken to pawing one piece of food out of her dish at a time, and cupping while bringing it to and putting it in her mouth. I don't know who has been teaching the cat to eat like a human, but it's pretty entertaining to watch. While the other cat, Delia has become my protector. I've learned that fake-crying will get her to my side, wide-eyed in an instant.

Crazy cats.

And another odd happening, Aaron and I decided to do some yard cleaning on Saturday.
He was blowing around the leaves and I was following behind to plant tulip bulbs. He finished with one section and I looked down to find a $50 bill in one of our hostas. So I think next year I'm going to split the hosta and sell of pieces of it, marketing it as the first money growing hosta. How else would you explain it?

A baby growing inside me and money growing on plants.

What a crazy year....

    I want one of those hostas! Of course if you divide them, they'll only produce $25.00...

    I can't even imagine the thrill you must have felt seeing your baby's heartbeat for the first time. You and Aaron must be so excited!
