12 Weeks: No news is good news.

Well, we haven't heard any news from SCI yet, but under the circumstances (the biggest power outage in the world) I'm not surprised if there is a delay.  I'm more concerned with our surrogate and little sea-monkey.

I've been hearing updates that power is being restored (thank goodness!) and that New Delhi is almost fully up and running.

I hope everyone at SCI and the wonderful women carrying little bundles of joy are doing well.

It's a Fetus!

We got our 10 week scan yesterday!  I guess Dr. Jolly is really busy - and no wonder - so our scan was delayed a few days.  So a little extra worrying, but...

Everything looks great (to us anyway):  3.3 cm, 10 weeks 1 day GA, 146 bpm.  It's starting to look like a real baby - and Wikipedia says it's technically now a fetus.  Hooray!

I've been traveling a ton lately, and there's a major reorg at work, so at least I've been distracted from worrying too much in these early weeks.  And next week I have a client going live in NYC, and it's also our anniversary, so Morgan is going to join me so that we can spend a few days site seeing and relaxing a bit (well, I'm not sure New York City and Relax belong in the same sentence, but at least we'll be together and I'll only be half working).  Can't wait!

Our baby is a giant Sea Monkey...

The little bug is the size of a blueberry.  Honestly, I don't know I'm looking at.  One end of the line is a head, and the other is a rump or "tail".

A coworker said they can see an eye, but they're full of it.

So this weekend, we went to Babies 'Я' Us for the first time (just for a look-sie).  Neither of us has ever been to one before.  I honesty thought that it was just a Toys 'ЯUs with baby toys (and diapers).  I used to work at Toys 'Я' Us many years ago before Babies 'Я' Us existed.

Going there is a eye-opening experience.  The sheer amount of crap is astonishing!  There's literally something for everything and then some.  Several work friends told me they are over-priced and that I can get most of the same things much cheaper elsewhere.  I'm thinking Amazon.com will be providing the bulk of SeaMonkey's supplies.

It was nice to browse the clothing though.  They had some cute boy and girl outfits and (forgive me for sounding extremely gay) this hot little number in the child-whore section.

I kid you not, this outfit is for a two-year old.  No, it was not in clearance Halloween, dress-up corner, or mommy & me.  This is actually for sale with the regular clothing.  

Nothing screams summer fun than a faux-fur fuzzy vest and "Peg Bundy" leopard print velour pants.  She'll be the talk of the methadone clinic in this getup.  Too bad there's no matching Daddy outfit. :(

I'm just glad that Courtney Love is designing children's clothing now...
