We had our anatomy scan on Thursday and we are very thrilled that our baby is so darn healthy looking. Since our miscarriage last November I have been extremely paranoid this pregnancy. I can feel kicks all the time now, as can Spencer, but I was still very anxious prior to the scan. The doctor who reviewed it all after the tech was done kept looking at all of the baby's anatomy because you could see it all so clearly- he thought it was cool! We saw hands, feet, mouth, nose, ears, and a heart that made him said "Wow, your baby has a very healthy heart."
It was a great appointment.
Did I mention we are expecting a baby boy? We are so thrilled, and Adalyn is excited about her little brother!
Speaking of Adalyn, her two year old ways are firmly in place. Her favorite words are "No!" and "I want!" Fortunately, she has also added "I love you too" and "Kissy!" to the words we regularly hear. She had her (very late) two year well check and she is 3' 2" tall and weighs about 32 lbs! She's no small toddler! We are reading endless books, enjoying watching her dance and learn to throw a ball and her love of cars and trains.
The most interesting (for me) is hearing her language skills develop. She asks for what she wants very clearly sometimes. She will say "I want milk, please!" instead of just saying "Baba?" like she used to. If she is tired or upset she will tell me she wants to go home, and she also says if she wants to read, play outside, or to "bye bye!" She will also say where she wants to go. Last night she said "I want to go to Papa's (my dad) house!" She's requested the library and to get ice cream before as well! She will (usually) tell me what she wants to eat or pick from the options I give her.
