She has MY nose

When I showed the Empress the following picture taken at today's sonogram, she declared "the baby has my nose".  Perhaps a little Chinese fairy snuck in.  I told her, baby sure did!  A beautiful little button nose.  Little Bit is growing and doing great at 19 weeks and weighs 11 ounces with a heart rate of 145.

Oh Baby!

Three and a half years ago I posted about my referral and pending adoption of Emme Li Chao.  Three and a half years later I am awaiting the birth of a baby who was definitely a surprise!  Just two months after our wedding, one month after our relocation to Florida...  I am 18 weeks along and trying to soak it all in. Emme is excited about becoming a big sister and I look forward to seeing her continue to flourish as my first "baby".  I know the gender but the man in the house does not.  We are a family divided!  All I really care is that the baby is healthy.  Dressing room photos aren't the most flattering but it's something.  Me at 15 weeks while visiting in NYC.
