Introducing... Little Tam! 現在介紹…小小譚 baby!!

(Click the picture for enlargement 按圖片把圖片擴大)

Introducing…Little Tam! We considered waiting a couple weeks more before making “the big blog announcement,” but Grandma Swain’s email has been malfunctioning and so this is our excuse to let her see the first ultrasound pic. Anyway, we tend to be the open, sharing type of people in general--and it is driving us crazy to pretend otherwise. The pregnancy is at 10 weeks, and about a week ago we had the first ultrasound/got to hear the heartbeat via Doppler. As you can see, our baby is still in the “jelly bean” phase of growth, where both head and torso look equal in size and shape. Somehow we still get excited when we see this fuzzy blob and say, “how cute!” We are very thrilled, as the timing is good and we have been wanting this pregnancy for quite awhile. This baby will be the first grandchild for both Jerry’s parents and Courtney’s parents.

現在介紹…小小譚 baby。我們考慮過更等待幾個星期再做「blog大公告」,但是佳妮祖母的電子郵件發生故障,因此她的祖母能看到第一個超聲波的嬰兒照片。 懷孕是10個星期了,一個星期前, 在我們第一超聲波時, 我們聽到了baby的心跳聲。 您能看到,我們的嬰孩仍然到在早期成長階段之内,頭和腹部看起来大小相等。多麼可愛…!!! 我們非常興奮,時間真好, 我們已經等了這個懷胎很長時間。這個嬰孩將會是雙方父母的第一個孫。

Congratulations! Courtney, I am THRILLED for you! (and Jerry too, of course) We will most definitely have to stay in touch after we move because I want to see pictures of Little Tam! I am sad that we won't all still be in this ward when all the new babies come along.

HOORAY!!!! And you are quite right. The resemblance is uncanny. :) But then, I guess Jelly-beans don't get much of a chance to show their individuality. :)
We are so happy for you guys!!
Congratulations!!!!
