I saw our baby for the first time. It made the pregnancy seem all the more real when we saw our baby jump quickly and settle slowly in the embryonic fluid. The nurse was able to print off some pictures for us, and we are excited to share them with all of you.

One of our favorite pictures was the baby’s foot. I would love to say it looks like mine, but that is impossible because Gina says I have hobbit feet. They are big and hairy. I cannot help but think about the journey my child is going to choose. As a soon-to-be parent it is easy to criticize and imagine ourselves as the perfect parents and being the one’s to inspire our children to follow the simple and narrow way, but the truth is I have trouble following that path. I suppose that is part of helping my kids follow that path is to explore and search together as opposed to having everything figured out and just feeding the answers to him/her.
