We have a bean!

Ok, now I can spill the beans. I’ve been chomping at the bit for a while now, and can finally announce that Lisa and I are going to have a baby! Yipee! We went in for the first ultrasound yesterday. The baby is 8 weeks 4 days according to the ultrasound measurements of 19 mm. The ultrasound showed the heartrate about 183 bpm. Here is a picture from the ultrasound.

8 Weeks 4 days!

At 19 mm, the description of bean isn’t that far off. A lima bean for certain. 🙂 Needless to say, I’m really excited and terrified all at the same time!!

    Most of the civilized world sucks in its breath and worriedly mutters, “My God, he’s reproducing!”

    The president moves the national defense to DEFCON 4. Women and children weep uncontrollably. String men wet their pants.

    Is this the end of life as we know it?

    I appreciate the observation. I have been known to strike fear into men of all statures. Especially the stringy ones. I do carry a Leatherman, after all.
