6:43 am – I am heading out to work this morning. I am very excited to see you for the very first time. I know that the next few hours are probably going to drag, and I likely won’t be all too productive at work. It is crazy for me to imagine how small you are, and that a Doctor is going to be able to show me a picture of you today. Well, I had better head out to the car so I am not late to work.

8:14 am – As I had predicted time has slowed to a crawl. I think this is how time seemed to pass for me when I was 5 years old. Everything took forever when I was younger. I keep think that time speeds up as you get older. And since you are so young maybe that means the past few hours have felt like years to you?

10:15am – Well, I am getting ready to jump out of work and meet Jaime at the Doctors office. I can feel stress building up as I process the excitement of seeing you and learning about how you are doing. I tend to always begin thinking about ‘worst case scenarios’, maybe this is from my Boy Scout training to ‘Always Be Prepared’. I am praying for you constantly, that you are healthy and doing well. I will soon know more, and will see you soon!

12:42pm – Jaime and I just left the Doctors office. It was so amazing. We were able to see and hear your tiny heart beating and even see where your head and even your arms are right now. Your heart rate is 167 beats per minute, which is good and you are 1.53 cm long right now. You are healthy and growing just as you should. And Jaime and I were right, you are 8 weeks old right now. We are so excited to have seen you today, and we will see you again on May 13th!
