Happy Mothers Day

I just want a small piece of you
a token to put in my pocket
and I will own that one thing
and it would make me happy
I just want a small piece of you
somethin to put in a locket
and i will look at it daily
and that will make me happy

I guess it's human nature to want to hold you very still
I guess it's in a mother to inject a little guilt
Go on son and see the world;
I hope you see it all
But please please please don't forget to call

Free to fly free to go free to not look back
That's how free I want you though it scares me half to death
Free to wander miles and miles and free to come back home
That's how free I want you though it chills me to the bone...
Go on son and spread your wings;
I hope that you take flight
But please please please don't forget to write

I know you're just a baby sleeping in your bed
And you probably have other thoughts drifting through your head
I know this conversation's a little premature
It's just that I've heard eighteen years goes by like a blur

-Sara Groves "Small Piece of you"

To all the mothers out there, have a happy mother's day.

23 Week Ultrasound

The baby is most definitely a boy. We have had three ultrasounds and at each one it has been rather clear, one tech even told us to 'definitely' buy blue. We had a third ultrasound last Friday because the video from the previous session hadn't worked. The tech, possibly feeling sorry for Todd that he couldn't be there, switched the ultrasound over to 3D for a few minutes, it was really quite neat to say the least. It makes me even more excited for his arrival.
I hope to have more pictures posted soon but blogger in draft is causing too much of a headache at the moment.
