the first of many photos...

We got the very first photo of our baby at the ultrasound yesterday!  As many of you parents already know, seeing your baby's heartbeat for the first time is...indescribable.  We were complete amazed by what we saw and Brian hasn't stopped touching my stomach since!

At 13 weeks and 1 day, it was a little difficult to decide who the baby looks more like (hehehe...).  In fact, right now, we think it looks alot like E.T.!  The ultrasound technician doesn't say that much either - I asked her if he/she is healthy and she said that all she can do is take measurements and listen to the heartbeat.  I guess that was her way of saying that I have to talk to my doctor!

You never forget the first time you get to hear the heartbeat...all of a sudden the baby becomes real nstead of a kind of absract thing that you know is going to happen. Yvette - get used to the belly touching, once you get further along complete strangers come along and ask to touch your belly - no kidding! And, hey Brian..take it easy on the rubbing of the belly or baby will come out bald...lol!
