I wanted to post sooner, but I have a lot of year-end CRAP to deal with at work. Ack.

We had our first ultrasound!!! One gestational sac and a beating heart. I know it's still early and I haven't won the war, but at least seeing the heartbeat is one battle won! I was feeling strong enough that I was actually able to beat my IF Monster at arm wrestling!

Still wearing worry as a backpack though.

And Smarshy's, Gil's, and Angie's IF Monsters are assholes. I'm so sorry. If I could really send your IF Monsters into oblivion via a VERY explosive canon, I would without a moment's hesitation. But I guess all I can do is give you hugs through the computer.

I really hate all our monsters.

Of course my IF monster is green. He knows it's my favorite color, and a couple rooms in my house are painted green, so he can stand up against the wall and be virtually invisible. Smart bugger.

I have to say, I feel a bit like a movie star, having my name and my own IF monster in one of your pictures.

Hearing the heartbeat is more than a battle won, it's an entire CAMPAIGN won! Congratulations! I'll never forget that sound with the buggins. It's amazing.

I know the backpack will be with you for awhile, but it will get lighter and lighter and one day.... POOF! It'll be gone!
