19 weeks, maybe 21 to go!

our son can hear our voices now. it probably sounds like when someone is talking to you while you are swimming under water. i think this is very exciting. i wonder what he thinks about abby's morning cries for food and rosey's barking.

our ultrasound showed him to to be about 9 ounces and looking very healthy. he is neither too big or too small, the size of a zucchini.

by belly is getting big and the ultrasound confirmed for me that the pulsing feeling i have felt is probably his foot. i thought it was weird that i only felt this in one spot…but it is pretty consistent now, so i imagine that it is our son making himself known.

now that we know that baby chaud is a boy, i am eager to start decorating his room and plan for his arrival. may 26th seems a long time away. the weather will be great. i look forward to the time off during the summer so that he and i take long walks in the sun.

Patrick was a great kicker, too. After the initial "butterfly" feeling, he began to kick a lot. About 5 months before his birth, on Mother's Day, he kicked strong enough for his Dad to feel it.
