Baby Caughey is on the way!

Well, it's true. Baby Caughey is coming to a crib near you in January of 2009!  We are very excited to be expecting this little one and as first time parents we are soaking up all the information we can about what's happening each week and marvel at how God continues to knit our little one together.  It's amazing to think that next week it will barely be the size of a blueberry and yet it has grown SO much over the last few weeks.

Yesterday, we got our wee one's first picture at only 5 weeks and 4 days.  Amazing.  There is really no other word for it.  The large dark area is the gestational sac and then the small white-ish circle is the yolk sac.  At the base of the yolk sac is our baby - a little hard to see but very much there.  We got to see its little heartbeat fluttering in the "live" shots.  The doctor was able to let us hear a couple of beats but it sounded somewhat sporatic because it's so small it's hard to actually pinpoint it with the microphone.

So, there's the answer to what's REALLY been going on around here.  We were sitting on the information for awhile for a variety of reasons.  We are thrilled to be sharing this news with everyone!

UNM Shout Out from NBC

My sweet husband really enjoys watching the show ER.  Last night was no different as we settled in to watch the beloved show.  However, within the first few minutes of the show I looked at Husband and asked, "Did I really hear that?"

Sure enough.

Some new character on the show is a 4th year med student doing some rotation from the University of New Mexico.  It was entertaining as there was small talk about being a lobo (the mascot, a wolf - in case you didn't know) and watching football games as well as which family members had season tickets, etc.  It was still strange to me as I had Husband rewind so I could see it again.  Nutty.  Of course she has the token Spanish surname name.  Oh well.

Props to UNM getting a little shout out from the writers at NBC.  I have heard that UNM has a pretty good med school and a few of my friends are a product of that system.  Apparently, we have arrived.  HA!
