And Then There Were Four

We're creating this blog because it's the cool thing to do when people are having a baby. Just kidding, really we already have a hard enough time keeping up with everyone we want to, and our lives are about to get even more wonderfully busy. We can't wait - and we want you guys to be able to share in it too, so we both plan on reporting on it. Read at your own risk, and hopefully you'll enjoy it!

Baby Roelofs!

Can you believe it??? First sonogram pictures yesterday at the Dr.'s appointment! As you can clearly see above, it looks like everything is okay, and there's only one in there! We both had gut feelings that we had twins on the way for some reason (which would've been awesome :-)), but that is not the case. That's probably good since we were having a hard enough time settling on one name - let alone two. When the doctor held the imager still, you could clearly see the baby moving around in there - we've got an active one. It was just great, at once exciting, chilling and humbling.... It's a bit hard to believe we're responsible for such an amazing thing with God's grace. I guess it does not really hit home until your face-to-face with your child-to-be like this. He/She was already 3.4 cm long, estimated due date is October 22nd. If he/she gets my height and Katie's shot we may have the next Candace Parker/Michael Jordan :-). Just kidding of course, but it's just awe inspiring to think about the limitless possibilities of the future for this child...
