Zac took the big kids to work with him, so I brought Elias with me to my prenatal appointment. So far, everything looks good. No abnormalities with Baby or my insides. Baby is measuring 8 weeks exactly and had a strong heartbeat. It even wiggled a bit during the exam. Elias thought the experience was pretty neat, listening to the heartbeat and such. I showed him the ultrasound photo and he said, "Awww so cute!" I'm positive he's not 100% sure what's going on, but getting him excited to be a big brother is fun.
I finished up my appointment just in time to meet up with Zac and the big kids for lunch at Cane's. Lately, I can't seem to consume enough potatoes, so anywhere that has fries is a yes from me.
