Our First Ultrasound

We got our first glimpse of baby Schleicher today! It's finally starting to feel real! We got to hear the heartbeat (a whopping 176 beats per minute, which the technician said is average for an 8-week old baby). Our baby measures 1.6 cm "crown-to-rump," and the doctor confirmed the estimated arrival date will be May 8th. Above are our first pictures which are admittedly a little vague. The head is at the top of each picture. (Use your imagination!) But these proud new parents just had to share!

It's Official!

Our nine month journey has officially begun! We were simply elated when the pregnancy tests came back positive yesterday morning!! We've been praying for this baby for almost two years, and God faithfully, in His wisdom and perfect timing, has answered our prayers. We can't wait to see you, little one!
