The twelve week wait is over, we’ve gone public! I’m going to be a daddy again :-)
This came as a bit of a shock, but after the news sunk in (some weeks ago now) I eagerly await any little development and have been talking to Rachael’s baby bump for some time now, encouraging it to grow and be happy.
We had to take Elliot along to the scan with us, which was sort of difficult after his initial enthusiasm for the baby scan unit at our local hospital subsided. We got in to the room where they scan for the baby pretty quickly which was great and we were able to show Elliot his baby brother or sister on the screen. This time around I noticed that the resolution on the scanning gear was excellent and baby was doing flips and dancing around in some sort of squirmy bliss. I’m happy [relieved] to say all was well with baby.
After that we trooped out to the waiting area where no amount of bribery would keep Elliot from playing with the most grimy toys in the box.
We got a load of really good pictures that I’ve proudly shown to everyone at my office, who were all very happy…
(The finance manager was horrified when I approached her as she assumed the envelope in my hand contained a resignation letter and I was busy “happily resigning” – she was extra relieved to find out it was only baby scan pictures lol!)
So anyway there you have it.
