Free Time at Work

Ever wonder what pregnant people do when they have free time at work? Well, I don't have a lot of free time but I do have a little.

I am laughing so hard I cannot respond so he continues..."Why is there a …

Honestly, I don’t think Mike or I even realized he did not let us hear our baby’s heartbeat until we were on our way home. Why?? Simply because we were both so amazed and excited by the sight of our little spawn changing in only 2 weeks into this amazing little PERSON! Our skittle is officially a baby! With legs, arms, and fingers and toes. The instant that the doctor found our little skittle, now baby, we were shocked. He was kicking and moving around like he had somewhere to go. The doctor said that we would get to count the fingers and toes if the baby would stop for even a second, but of course being Michael’s child he did not stop but instead kept on kicking punching. I have never seen something so small being so active. The pict…
