On Wednesday I got a peek a little Baby Bettinelli, aged 10 weeks. (Sure, the OBs insist it’s 12 weeks but I refuse to count the two weeks before the baby was conceived. That’s just unscientific.) I am happy to report that Baby is very, very active and loves to play with his/her toes and touch his nose and stretch and turn and wave. The ultrasound tech was very impressed at the level of activity and oohed and aaahed much more than I did—which will surprise no one who knows me well since I’m not really the ooohing and aahing type.
While I’m very happy (and more than a bit relieved) to see our newest little one, posting this is bittersweet. My heart is also aching for a friend who is making burial arrangements for her baby who is about the same age. Please say a prayer for Geek Lady and her family.
