I was thrilled to go to the doctor yesterday and hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time! It was in the 160s. The doc was having a hard time "catching" it at first. We would briefly hear it, then a lot of swooshing (baby moving) and it would be gone. So this one is quite active without the pepsi. The doctor muttered, "Ugh, stinker!" She finally got it good and said, "Now it's trapped." I thought that was funny. Everything looks good.
We went to the park last night and took family pictures. Holly helped us get a family shot. It was much chillier out than I expected, so we all huddled really, really close and it looks so good. Is it wrong of me not to post it? I want to use it for our Christmas card (assuming I ever get that one out). Well, ok, I guess I'll post it. You know, just in case my best intentions don't play out. I also took individual pics of each kid as their "annual" or school picture. They all turned out really good with a few extra tries on some. Eden was the only person that got a great picture on the first try.
