Baby Buckeye at 8 Weeks
Dru and I have recently visited three physicians. Two MD's and one midwife. Unfortunately, even here in Kentucky, there are no birthing centers. Well, at least not in the greater Lexington area. This was and continues to be a disappointment for Dru and I. Dru is fearful of a home birth, and frankly I don't blame her, so it seems that we are stuck going the Hospital route. So much for the American sense of choice. Anyway, Ryan has deemed, and I think rightly so, this kid "Baby Buckeye".
Dru is doing well and is now at 11 weeks today. She is hungry all the time and her body is beginning to "change". I think its cute but she has other ideas. Continue to pray for the health of Dru and the Baby. Also, pray for peace about my trip to India. It's coming up pretty close and has added some financial and overall strain to our lives. A BIG thank you to those of you who gave towards this trip from Ashland and elsewhere. You have been a great blessing.
Enjoy the picture...if you're close to this area and would like to see a 35 second tape of an ultra sound stop on by.
P.S.-I'm still a bit skeptical if you were wondering. For all I know they could have just popped in an old ultra sound. Who knows? Maybe they just want us to think we're pregnant to suck us financially dry. Hey, it's a possibility. You can't rule it out and neither can I.
Ok...Ok...I'm workn' on it.
One last thing...I did think that it was cute that the CRL measurement stands for "Crown to Rump Length."
Love, Aunt Joy
Adam...you need to let go of this skepticism and embrace this special time of your lives. God will take care of all your needs, especially this precious "baby buckeye".
Love you much...Mom
we can discuss the irony here later.
