Fingers and Toes, Plus Baby's New Ride

It's been a while since we last posted any news, but it's been pretty busy around here. We are right in the middle of week number 12, though, and thankfully nausea has loosened its grip on Tam, though there are still some rough days. We had our second ultrasound yesterday afternoon, and the difference between the previous one and this one is AMAZING! Last time all we saw was a slightly fluttering heartbeat, and this time, we saw a rapidly developing little person, complete with teeny fingers and toes.

In the pictures above, our butterbean took the time to wave to us before getting back to the business of thumbsucking. 

We also found and bought the babymobile last week. The Altima with 166K miles on it and questionable reliability has given up its spot in the garage, and our new CR-V is sitting in its place. It's the car Tam has wanted for years, and it's got plenty of room for us, the baby, the dog, and the three dozen bags that people with newborns are obligated to carry everytime they set foot out the door.

Brian calls Laura butterbean!! That is so cute!! I really like the all will fit great in it. And you are right there will never again (at least for the next 18 years) be such a thing as packing light!!! :)

What a beautiful little bean and car!! I high-fived back but am not sure that the cutie bear saw me. The good news is that we will see you tomorrow and I can wave all I want.

We are looking forward to seeing the three of you (and the babymobile). BTW, if you need any help baby-tricking out the car - let us know. We are experts.
