19 weeks: Meet Mango

To say it has been a while is an understatement, but we’ve had a lot on our plate in the past few weeks.  I’m writing now at close to week 23, but we’re playing catch-up for now…

At the end of week 18, we had our first ultrasound.  We had been looking forward to it ever since we heard the first heartbeat, so we were excited, and the day didn’t disappoint.

Wee little Mango was cooperative as could be and graced us with all sorts of twists, turns, and even a smile.  We’re holding out until our first in-person meeting to know if the baby is a boy or a girl, but we still loved our first glimpses of the tiny little being growing inside.

Here you are…Mango!

A headstand…

And our very first smile.  My heart melted.

Despite the fact that I know this is just the beginning of these overwhelmingly intense emotions, it really is incredible.  The amount of love I feel in looking at that tiny little image of an unintentionally smiling baby…just incredible.
And it’s only the beginning.
