Love for my Chuga Chuga Bean

Dear Little Bean,

I cannot stop smiling today. Your daddy and I had our 12 week appointment today and we were a-m-a-z-e-d by your strong little heart. You've given us a gift we will forever be thankful for and it makes us love you even more than words can describe. I just cannot imagine what our love for you will be like once you actually arrive. We were disappointed that we didn't get to see you today and check out that cutie little profile of yours, but I'll be seeing you in just two weeks. I think I can wait.

You did a mighty fine job of letting the doctor catch your heartbeat and the speed and the strength in it really surprised us. You're daddy said he wanted to make jokes about it while we were listening, but he chose to wait; which I'm glad he did because I couldn't get enough of that beat. Afterwards, he couldn't help himself and he said it was like a little train, "chuga chuga." Well, keep on chugging bean. We can't wait to meet you at the end of this trip!

Love,
mommy

Yea! How exciting to hear the heartbeat for the first time. I'm so glad it was healthy and strong. Chuga chug.
