Peanut Update: 1/2 Mark

Anyone who knows me knows 2 very important things:

1. I am not one that follows the "in thing".
2. It is rare for me to miss an opportunity for cake


On Monday, Matt and I went in for another ultrasound and doctor appointment.  Everything checked out great! During the ultrasound they were able to get 75 pictures to determine that our little peanut has 2 arms, 2 legs, lots of fingers and toes, 2 eyes, 2 ears, 2 lungs, working kidneys and a heart with 4 chambers.

Our Peanut is wiggling like crazy, although I'm not feeling it yet. It seems to be right on track according to the doctor.  They are pleased I am having a 'boring' pregnancy.

Best Part?!?!  During the ultrasound they wanted baby to turn over for two more pictures of the heart.  They were pushing on me to get a response.  After about 4 pokes, baby's arm shoots straight up and shakes it's fist at the monitor.  They called it a day at that point =) 

So, what did we fill our 'reveal' cake with..................????

Chocolate fudge, because clearly we are having a stubborn little 'shit'.
But, then again, it's part Rubrecht and part Kay, so it seems very fitting =)

As you can see we chose not to find out the gender.  We will be doing a Mickey Mouse theme for our nursery and we have names for both genders.  We are excited and hope to continue with the boring pregnancy!
