4:00 fire face, right on cue!

This is a big week for Mini Me or He! Our baby’s heart starts beating!!   I can’t get over how complex the development already is, despite the fact that its only the size of a APPLE SEED! The beginnings of the brain; the cardiovascular, nervous and reproductive systems; as well as all other major systems are under way.  Baby’s new digs—the amniotic sac and the placenta (aka the hotel and the restaurant)—are still forming at this point. (Feel free to send a housewarming gift.)

I already am thinking about him or her every second of every day.  Today I went to Michaels and bought cute little picture frames to decorate with “I love my Grandma and Grandpa”… I’ve decided that this will be how I tell my family that we are expecting.  In the frame I am going to write a note that says “Insert a picture of your grandbaby on 11/6/2011 (The baby’s due date). We will see who catches on first.  We know we are going to tell our families first before we tell our friends, but it is SO incredibly hard to keep such a huge secret!

I can’t get over how tired I am all the time, and I feel like my heart is going to beat out of my chest.  My face also gets so hot, like its on fire hot, around 4:00 pm everyday.  I have no idea what that is all about.  I think s/he’s playing games with me already.  Today, out of habit, I ended up in line at Starbucks, and by the time I got to the counter to order I realized that I could not have the usual- Grande Skinny White Chocolate Mocha, No Whip…I ordered a strawberry smoothie instead.   Ian is also trying to go caffeine free (for moral support), but he gets this look of disgust on his face when he orders lemonade instead of his beloved Mountain Dew.  (Between you and me, that’s my favorite part of the meal).

We have had a list of baby names saved on our computer for 6 months now… I’m sure we will add to it, delete, edit, and modify a million times- but as of right now, here are some of our faves:
