Honestly, I have mixed emotions regarding ultrasounds. I LOVE seeing images of the baby, but I am always fearful that the technician might detect a problem. Where these irrational fears come from is a mystery to me. I guess it is just part of being a worry wart.
Also, my doctor wrote down some special notes for me to give to the ultrasound technician. I tried to read the notes, but I can only make out about 3 words. I feel like a grade schooler, whose teacher sent home a note in a sealed envelope. WHAT DOES THAT DAMN NOTE SAY?!?! It driving me insane.
We are still undecided on the gender issue. I don't really want to know the sex, but John does. We didn't find out with Porgie - mainly because I didn't want to know. I was absolutely positive that we were having a boy (I guess I have no mother's intuition). Needless to say, it was an awesome surprise.
Porgie can stand all by her pretty little self. It is very adorable. She looks so surprised and proud of herself when she accomplishes this amazing feat. She also took her first independent step yesterday. I was snapping pictures, when I should have been videotaping her. I never capture any great moments on video. I totally suck.
But, I did get a great shot of her standing...
I haven't talked much about this before, but no-one from my family has visited us here in New Jersey. It kind of pisses me off. I traveled all the way to Kentucky with Porgie (a 10 HOUR drive) to visit my family, but they all seem unwilling to come visit me. My cousin Bean promised that she was going to come out this summer with her kids. I was already planning our week together - trips to the beach, the zoo, the water park. She called yesterday to report that she can't come. I am very sad.
