ever since announcing our pregnancy, A. and i have been asked "when are you going to start a blog?" the answer, my friends & family, is today. we started off the day with a nuchal translucency screening, which went extremely well. we got to see the baby, we saw actual thumb-sucking, and were told that the baby is cute. also, without giving us the official word, our technician let us know that the baby is, in all likelihood, though it could change at any moment, a girl.
leave name suggestions in the comments - we're leaning towards "m" names, but are open, and any suggestions including middle names will be looked upon favorably.
