Meet Lima Bean.

I'd like to introduce to you Lima Bean... our little Lima Bean. The little bean that will one day be our baby boy or girl.

*Note: for the time being, Lima will be referred to as "he." Later on (week 20), we should find out if we need to alter the gender. :)

Lima Bean is currently about 11 weeks old, but already very active and growing very quickly. He is currently the size of a large lime.

Yesterday, Andrew and I got to see Lima for the first time. It was such a sweet time. For all of you parents out there, I know you can relate.

As mentioned yesterday, Lima likes to dance around. He was all over the place during the ultrasound... the doctor had to chase him down just to get a heartbeat! When she recorded the heartbeat, we learned that right now his heartbeat is 174 bpm... major metabolizing going on! According to a source, it's been said that babies with a higher heart rate typically turn out to be girls. Nevertheless, we're gonna stick to a "he" for now.

Andrew and I were going back and forth as to whether or not we should post an ultrasound pic of the baby online - not certain if people wanted to see a pic like that involuntarily, but we decided we would because he's just so cute. :)

So, family and friends, please meet Lima Bean.

Please excuse poor quality... photo taken with my phone.
In the first photo, you can see Lima's big head and arms extended. The middle photo looks like he has on a face mask. The last photo makes it look like we might have a nose picker on our hands. :)

You can be certain that you will be reading many more posts about our Lima Bean.
