Little Fingers and Toes

After several requests to share photos, we decided this would be the best way to do that.
We hope you enjoy!
In the Beginning...
In the early weeks, when we only knew of the possibility of becoming pregnant, I noticed a sudden increase in my appetite for milk, cheese, and carbs. Because of that, I believe I gained about 4 pounds right away. After an unfortunate lapse in workouts (due to getting ready for our trip to Italy, packing up my classroom, and finishing the school year), I went for a run in our neighborhood. After a little while I just could not run any longer. I felt out of breath, a little dizzy, and I knew something was up. Let Whit say what he likes, but I think it was his excitement that got us to take the 2 tests right away :-) and both were positive. Over the next 2 months (the rest of the first tri-mester) I became quite exhausted, as usually happens. I would collapse at the end of the school day. Whit always laughed when I wanted to go to bed at dinner time. Here is our first ultrasound picture from the 8th week.
