Update from yesterday

I just wanted to leave a little update, yesterday I wanted to get the pictures posted in a hurry.  I sort of feel like I didn’t do the whole experience justice.

First of all, I am fairly lucky in the fact that Megan and I share an office and see each other every day, baby Zoey hears my voice all the time, and I get to feel her movements every day.  Tony doesn’t get that time, so he spent a lot of time and energy into recording us talking to Zoey and reading her stories.  Megan plays them through the belly buds every night.  That way Zoey will know both of our voices.  It also seems like every time Tony is around, and Zoey is moving and kicking, she calms down as soon as he tries to feel (secretly I am hoping that this will always be the case and this is all it will take to calm her).  Yesterday, besides hearing that she is healthy and well nourished, seeing the 3D pictures was amazing.  The fact that she was SUPER active and Tony got to feel her acrobatics was the icing on the cake.

I love watching his face when we talk about her, or when he knows she is safe and loved.  You would have to know my big strong “bear” of a husband to fully understand the impact of seeing tears of joy run down his face.

Those cheeks… I can’t wait to kiss those cheeks.  I expected her to be cute, I guess I was really unprepared for her to be absolutely breath taking.  We made that.  The three of us (and a team of Doctors, nurses, and lab technicians) made that happen.  WOW….


  1. I can't wait until you get to meet her too! Our little surro boy went home from the hospital with his Daddies yesterday. Yaaaaa! Ash and I are still vacationing for another week but I'm watching your blog to get any updates.
