Wow, 7 weeks today, I cannot believe it! Today, our little squirt is the size of a blueberry. Our ultrasound (the first DH will see) is on Tuesday at 11:30, and I am SO ready for it. I am so excited, but it makes me nervous to get too excited, you know? I am really trying to hand all of my worries over to God because I know that I am doing everything I can do, but the rest is up to Him.
Today is also DH’s birthday! Happy Birthday, Trevor! He is the big 2-6 (doesn’t look a day over 25, I tell you), and I hope he has a great and fabulous birthday. We are cooking out with his parents tonight for a little celebratory dinner at our house. Last year, I arranged for DH to be off on his birthday but didn’t tell him until that morning. He got up, got dressed and I said “What are you doing?” He got all irritated and said “I”m getting ready for work, what do you think?” Then I said “Why?” and he made a mad sound and tried to ignore me. I said “you don’t have to go to work today.” Him: “Yes, Jessica, I do. What is wrong with you?” Then I got all excited and said “No, you really don’t, I talked to your boss and you have the day off and so do I!” He was so excited and we had an awesome day playing and going to the movies. So, of course, he asked me this morning if he really had to go to work. Sorry, babe, but you do. I told him no more free days off with all the upcoming ultrasounds and doctor appointments.
Tomorrow is my bff’s baby shower, and I am really excited. A lot of planning has gone into it, and I hope she has a great time. I will post pictures on Monday.
Baby’s brain — both hemispheres! — is growing fast, generating about 100 new cells every minute. Arms and legs are emerging as joints start to form, and a permanent set of kidneys (baby’s third!) is now in place.
