we weren't joking...

So, I kid you not. This baby thing is for reals!
Being that today is my second to last day off BEFORE we go home for Christmas, I plan to accomplish a lot. And since I don't really sleep in anymore, I thought I'd get right to it this morn.
Okay! I know you have ALL been waiting for ACTUAL proof that we indeed are having a bundle of pink...so today is your lucky day. I tried to scan the ultrasound pictures when I came home, then tried to take screen shots of our little DVD, and then we finally took pictures of it...and that is when the magic appeared. Before then, it was just empty blackness.

Introducing Sweet Baby-Face Wood. She is such a dolly!
I know you'll agree!

yep, she was ready for her close up. I swear she's got our profile!

who's number one?

that's right! she already knew she was #1!!! she is so smart at such an early age! (she totally takes after me--well, maybe aaron too. I guess he was the one who got in trouble for reading the Encyclopedias too late at night. Maybe that means he was smarter...hmm...).

Really, though. It was such a fun/wonderful experience to be there with Aaron. She was moving around so much and we were amazed at all we could see! It was crazy. We came home and watched the DVD two or three more times!

It is amazing, because we already love her so much. We can't wait for her to make her debut! I love that Aaron says every night how excited he is for her. Good times, good times. Oh, and here's another visual treat...er...not. But this is what I look like now. P.S. Aaron kept saying, "Ok, hon, straighten your back a little bit..." but I couldn't! This is as straight as I go. Weird, I know.

and doesn't everyone do a side shot at 20-something weeks? okay, so we joined the club. It is so weird to see myself in a mirror and think..."is that really my stomach?" yeah, crazy, but true.

SO! There you have it...we weren't telling a joke or making up a story to be funny...it is the actual truth. (I was going to write "a belly never lies" but decided not to, b/c that sounds lame). :) Hey, get excited...only 21 days till Christmas!??!

oh my word. I can't believe how much she is already developed. I saw the picture and little tears came to my eyes. And oh my word I had no idea how big you are, but a cute big.

Melissa, you are adorable. I think pregnant bellies are cute. Well at least when they are clothed. And especially in the 2nd trimester before they take over the world. But, yeah, you are adorable! Congrats!

Hey! Hey! A cute baby is coming your way! Ha! I like to rhyme sometimes, even when it is lame!

Hello, we are so excited for the two of you. We seriously thought you were making this whole baby thing up...I'm still not convinced because your face is not in the photo, could be someone elses belly. J/K (how do you like that?).

Congrats!

Cool! Congrats again. I think you should take a profile shot of your belly every month and watch how it grows.
