I wish I could have...

I wish I could have felt you kick
I wish I could have seen you breath
I wish I could have seen your tiny hands
I wish I could have seen you smile
I wish I could have seen you roll over
I wish I could have seen your first steps
I wish I could have heard your first words
I wish I could have seen you play with your brother
I wish I could have seen your first day of school
I wish I could have seen you hit your first baseball
I wish I could have been the best father
I wish I could have comforted you when you were sick
I wish I could have seen you with your first girlfriend
I wish I could have helped with your first heart break
I wish I could have prayed with you
I wish I could have seen you play high school football
I wish I could have seen you graduate
I wish I could have seen you go to college
I wish I could have seen you get married
I wish I could have said a toast at your wedding
I wish I could have seen you excell in your job
I wish I could have seen your children
I wish I could have seen you by my bedside when I die
But most of all I wish you could have known how much your mother and I love you.

7 Weeks... oops...

Andrea had her first doctor appointment. Everything went well... BUT... we aren't as far along as we first thought. She is actually at 7 weeks this week... SO... I went back and edited last week and made it 6 weeks... and just so everyone is aware they estimated the due date the first week in December... :)

Our Baby: This week your baby's brain is growing at a mind-boggling 100 cells per minute within a see-through skull. If you could peer inside, you'd see those tiny brain cells growing and growing and growing (about as quickly as you feel like yours are shrinking and shrinking and shrinking with your "pregnancy brain"!). More high points include: Your baby's face is becoming more defined this week. A tiny mouth hole (which will be ready to wail before you know it!), tongue, nostrils and ear indentations are visible. His or her eyes are wide open, but he doesn't have irises (the colored part) yet. Baby's arm buds are growing. At this point they look more like microscopic ping-pong paddles than arms. Baby's leg buds are also forming and will look like tiny paddles by the end of the week.The umbilical cord—the connection between your baby and the placenta—is now visible.Your baby is now between 1/3 and 1/4 inch long—about the length of a Tic Tac and about as heavy as an eyelash. While that sounds tiny, he or she is approximately 10,000 times bigger than at conception. Crazy, huh?

Week 6...

Our Baby: Week 6...

This week starts a period of rapid cellular development for your baby-to-be, who looks like a mini tadpole, with a tiny head and tail. His or her eyes, ears and mouth have begun to form (though they're a little more Discovery Channel "creatures of the sea" documentary than Gerber Baby at this point).Other exciting milestones include:Your baby's heart is now beating to a regular beat, although it's still too faint to hear.His or her arm buds are just beginning to, well, bud. They look like teensy swollen bumps at this point. In a few days, they'll resemble itsy-bitsy flippers.Your baby has grown to ⅛ inch long—about the size of one of the chocolate sprinkles on your last cupcake (and your last ice cream cone, and your last sundae and your last giant cookie ... maybe there is something to those rumors about pregnancy cravings!).

Day 1...

Well Wednesday, March 10th we found out Andrea was pregnant. Andrea woke up around 6:00 am and took the test without telling me she had boughten one. I woke up around 7:00 am and when I went into the bathroom there was a positive pregnancy test on the bathroom sink. We are both really excited and can't wait for the next 9 months. Check back for more updates and pictures... :)
