Bean has fingerprints!

The human body is an amazing thing. I have always known this on some level, but being pregnant has brought whole new meaning to the word amazing for me. I am now a little over 13 weeks along, and I read that right now the little Janney bean is able to dance around (bending arms and fingers, open and closing eyes, since it is Paul's child we know he or she is in there just a boogying-away) PLUS bean has fingerprints! That blows me away. The whole process blows me away, but the fact that our unborn baby already has his or her own set of unique fingerprints literally astounds me.

Apparently bean already has certain personality traits that he or she inherited from Paul and I at conception. So this means that bean will be opinionated, funny, stubborn, intelligent and creative. That adds up to one handful of Janney baby for Paul and I, and we can hardly wait!

As for my health, I am doing much better. The morning sickness seems to have gone away (knock wood, plastic, metal, concrete - whatever I need to knock to keep it away!) and now it appears that the only baby symptoms I'm having are a slowly but surely thickening waist, sleepiness and WOW, am I a hungry chickie. I've been trying to stick to granola bars, fruits, veggies, crackers, yogurt - but every once in a while bean wants a ding dong. What can I say? The kid has a sweet tooth (and so does mom!).

I know Paul has been very good about keeping you all in the loop, and as things "truck right along" I'll try and post more often. Paul will be very pleased me thinks. :) Thank you all for caring enough about us and our little bundle of janney joy to read these updates. :)
