Day 701: In A Heartbeat

I spent the hours between 1:30 AM and 3:30 AM discovering that Baby B is still not ready for soy milk to be reintroduced to his diet.  My poor, poor baby.

But I'm sure the washing machine was relieved to know it's still needed after it's one day off.

So, mostly I was too tired to really get the joy in any moments that might have been joyful.  There were a few small ones here and there--it wasn't a bad day.  But, the definite standout would have to be letting all the kids tag along with me to my doctor's appointment (at their request), so they could hear that tiny little heart beating in my lower abdomen.

Yes, this is an announcement.

They already knew and were super excited to hear that sweet little heartbeat.  And sharing that with them was today's best Joyful Moment.

Wishing you all miraculous Joyful Moments shared with some of your favorite people!

Thanks, Lisa! It truly was.

I remember how I felt when I listened to that little heartbeat last month. Words can't describe those feelings. What a great idea to share this with your kids.

I had a very enjoyable day and then this evening your dad, my HH, installed several beautiful new lights in our kitchen and it's amazing how nice the difference is.

Yay! How fun. I was wondering when the secret would come out :)

Cheryl said...

Mom--It was really neat for me to have you there, too!

Laura--Thanks. This time has been really weird as far as how the secret has gotten out. Mostly, it's been leaked by other people, so I thought I'd better get to it first here. (c:
