Yesterday was another fun day. We went back to get another ultrasound. Last time we just went to find out the gender, but this was a longer, more in depth one. The nurse was quite a bit nicer and answered our questions. The pictures that we got are her little profile. (The nurse also confirmed that it was a girl, there was no "growth" in that way since two weeks ago.) In the picture with the caption that says "Hi Mom and Dad," you can see her little foot in the air. She was being very obedient and cute for us. Edit - I was having problems uploading the photos, so for now, see them here She moved everywhere that she needed to so that we could make sure that she was growing properly. The end result, 2 eyes, 2 arms, 2 legs, 1 brain, 1 stomach. You add those all up, and you will get one spoiled little girl. There was also a point where she spun around, and it was so cool. When I was in high school, my friend Jesse blew his nose on a dollar bill because he didn't have any Kleenex. Her spinning like she did was cooler. She is also jumping around on Mommy's bladder, but Maran doesn't seem to mind too much. But it seems that Maran is started to get a little more uncomfortable. The sickness has stopped for the most part which we are grateful for, but Maran can feel herself getting bigger. Her favorite line is, "My uterus hurts, I can feel it getting bigger." Women are good people for going what they go through to bring these babies here.

Last night I also felt Hannah moving around. She doesn't even weigh 1 pound yet, and the nurse said that it might be a few more weeks until I can feel her, but Maran let me feel her tummy last night, and sure enough, little Hannah was moving around, and I felt it. Very cool. It makes Mommy uncomfortable some times, so I have a little spanking waiting for her when she gets out. :)

That was the exciting and cool news. We won't have another appointment until after our trip to Hawaii. I think the official way to say and spell it is: Hawai'i, so I hope I don't offend anyone when I omit the apostrophe. We are so excited to go. It will be the first time for both of us. Hannah's first time as well. Maran will not be able to participate in every activity, but spending a week there will be so fun. We have our camera and camcorder ready to go.

A final note, if anyone wanted to leave a comment and couldn't, I have fixed that, and I apologize. We would love to read your comments, so please leave them.
