We have a mango!
Baby Vaesa: Vernix caseosa, a greasy white substance made of lanugo, oil and dead skin cells (yum) now coats baby's skin, shielding it from the amniotic fluid. (Picture yourself after a nine-month bath, and the need for protection makes sense.) You might actually get to see the vernix at birth, especially if baby is premature. He/she loves to dance in my belly and I am feeling it, nothing really constant, but feel it mostly in the afternoons. July 8th is the day we find out how healthy our babe is and if we are going to have a son or a daughter. I have had three dreams that it is a boy.
Momma: Lots of energy and crazy dreams that we have the baby but nothing for him/her or that I forget to feed him/her. These dreams have now caused me to make a master to-do list of everything I want to get done before the babe arrives. I may have to call in the reinforcments to get everything done! Watch out daddy...you are going to be busy! :)
Daddy: celebratred Father to be Day with a new set of tool boxes that he picked out. He helps me out so much and I cannot wait to see him with a baby! He will probably have more patience than me! He goes along with my crazy ideas and laughs at my insane dreams and tells me everything will be just fine!
Other news: We went to Sarasota, FL for a couple of days with my mom's side of the family. It was great to see the King family that we only get to see once a year! The weather was warm and the ocean salty....perfect! My immediate family (aka mom, dad, emily, and jenny) are driving to Cincy this morning to pick up a new puppy, a little boy named Jesse. Can't wait to meet him!
Well, that is all for now, lots of love and hugs until we see you!
