A little Brother or Sister for Ethan

I didn't get to do this for Ethan, start a blog before he was even born. I had never thought about blogging before he was born. I actually had started Ethan's blog as a way to keep family and friends informed of his progress as he progressed through the NICU. So this time I get a chance to start before the baby is even here!

I think the title of the blog is fitting for this baby. He/she is due November 13, only 11 days before Thanksgiving. Right now our lil turkey is only 13 weeks 2 days. So I guess we are going to have a turkey baby.

I've had 3 ultrasounds done and Ethan has been present to all of them. I had my last OBGYN appointment on the 5th of this month and the heartbeat was a little over 170/minute which is a great heartbeat. Ethan knows he is going to be a big brother but that's about as far as it goes for him. He likes to ask to see the baby and I show him the ultrasound pictures but he doesn't get why he can't just see the baby live. He thinks the baby is growing in his belly which I think is so adorable. He pats his belly and tells me "Baby in my belly!" Can't get any cuter than that. This little turkey is going to have a great big brother.

Someday when the kids are grown I will turn these blogs that I have been writing for them all these years into a book for them. They will enjoy reading all about their adventures as kids and laughing at their antics. Then they can see how much like them their own kids are.
