The One With The Big Day

What a day!

Yesterday we had our first doctor appointment for baby Brunson. They couldn't hear the heartbeat, so they sent me this morning for an ultrasound. We figured that meant we just weren't quite as far along as we thought we'd be. Rick had to miss some work for the first doctor appointment, so I brought along his sister who might just be the most excited person about this baby. She LOVES the baby already & really wanted to come to an appointment. I am glad she came with me. The ultrasound tech said we should be about 9 weeks and 6 days. They took a picture for us (I took a cell picture of the already not so clear ultrasound picture, so sorry for the bad quality) and Brittany, Rick's sister, made a bunch of copies so we could put them up in the bathroom, on the fridge, in my office, etc. She's too cute.

The baby's head is to the left, and it's bum and toes are to the right. I will try to put a more clear copy up when I get home. It had a very strong heartbeat of 188. It was really neat to see it in there. It's really real.

Then to top our day off, we just signed on our condo. We will be renting it out for now, but it feels good to have one. Especially since we got it for such a steal.

How exciting! Glad they found the heart beat! :) Just you wait until it actually looks like a baby, instead of an unidentifiable blob! Congrats on the Condo! That is an exciting day!

Congratulations Michelle! I'm envious of the condo. And that's the cutest little baby-peanut-blob I've ever seen! I think it's great you have such wonderful family on both sides. I'm glad things are going well!
