It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.
These two big girls are definitely aspiring to enter the medical field (and their little sister is close behind!). I think they are leaning towards midwifery. And, I would definitely support them! (I think midwifery, nurse or lactation consultant are some of my “missed” professions).
They think it’s amazing and awesome (as do I) that they can listen to their sister whenever they want. They can now feel her moving, but listening to her heartbeat is nothing short of a miracle. They’ve been listening to her heartbeat since we were sent a Baby Beat fetal doppler rental to try out again. (The girls really enjoyed listening to E when she was in utero and remembered the experience immediately.)
(Yes, that’s my bare belly….and my belly button is really creeping on being an outie. I’ve never had it pop all the way out, but I’m seriously wondering if it might this time!)
I love that they could connect with their sister when I was just 12 weeks pregnant with her, just like they did with E. They were right there with me, applying the ultrasound gel, turning on the doppler and listening until we “found” her. Of course, they also like to test out the doppler on their own hearts to hear theirs and compare them (mommy, the baby’s heart beats soooo much faster than mine!)
They also think it’s really cool that it displays the number on the front (B’s heart rate) and they can both practice reading their numbers over 100! I think it’s pretty cool that we can record it and I can send it to family so they can get a listen, too (because they’ve never been in town when there is a doctor’s appointment).
It just makes my heart go a flutter to see and hear the girls so excited about their newest little sister’s arrival. And, that they love to listen in on her and “spy” on her until she gets here.
**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**
I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love. Please spread the love! And, I never mind the comments, either:)
