Week Eleven

i just want to be happy that i get to finally post an entry with that heading.
*yay*
so i went in for what i thought would just be some screening blood work and got a Bonus Tummymuffin Show -- a fairly comprehensive ultrasound in which i discovered:
-TM4 seems to be constantly moving.
-her/his fingers are super cute.
-apparently when a tiny person smushes his/her face up against the sonogram wand thingy, he/she looks exactly like a tiny luchador.
-it seems that TM4 is already exhibiting genetic traits such as the infamous "Hutchinson Chin" (see this link for a telling photo of direct ancestor).
-perhaps later on i will be bored watching my child's antics, but right now, it's RIVETING.

this week feels like a small island of respite in the lake of blood and fire, for which i'm grateful. i need the naptime...

I was wondering about you! So sorry to hear about the diabetes...what a pain. Not saying it ain't worth it. It's still a major drag....as is the fatigue and nausea! But if there were ever happy nuisances, those are THEM, y'all.

Love, love, love.

Steady as you go....

Under no circumstances should you be surprised that your child is moving constantly...

I have been praying, and thinking about you a lot as this week approached, and I'm so grateful you got to write this wonderful post.

The prayers continue, as does the love and the hope, and the beauty that lives within your honest posts.

Go Tummymuffin IV! We are all rooting for you and your amazing parents...
