It Looks Just Like Mike
Mike and Jessi went in for their first ultrasound with Dr. Sironi today, and got three pictures. The baby was very active, wiggling and moving, and it's heartbeat was strong. Dr. Sironi measured 174 heart beats per minute, and baby is 2 centimeters long. You can see in the photos, it's not shy, it was spread-eagle! Jessi hopes that means we'll have an easy time finding out later if it's a boy or girl. And yes, we do plan on finding out as soon as we possibly can. Jessi wants to be able to call the baby by it's name, instead of just calling it "the baby".
In other news... Mike and Jessi are almost done with school! Jessi has 2 finals to take, and Mike has 4, all next week. The moment we are done with our last final, we are leaving Butte for the balmy weather of Farmington, New Mexico. Mike has an internship there with ConocoPhillips and will start work May 12th. We'll be heading through Utah and plan to stop for a couple of days to visit some special soon-to-be first time grandparents (both sets)! With Jessi not having a job anymore, she's been able to get a lot of the packing done already. Her planning (and over-planning) have helped make the task seem easy. We're still not quite sure where we'll be living, but we're trusting the Lord (and the landlord) to find us a good place to be.
