We had our monthly doctor visit on Tuesday this week, one day before hitting 25 weeks. Everything looks great! We listened to the heartbeat, which was strong and steady. Measurements are right where they should be. The doctor was happy with the progress, so we're happy too!
Pete finished his pediatrics rotation last week. He's so great with little kids. Actually, a few weeks ago we were visiting our new little Goddaughter in Rochester. I got ready to hand her over to Pete but was very cautious, as many guys I've seen hold babies are a bit fumbly and unsure. Apparently, I had momentarily forgotten how many babies Pete holds in a day. He has so much more confidence with little ones than I do! He's going to be such a great dad. As a parting gift from the docs on the peds team, he was given a little reflex checking thing (I know there's a technical name for it, but I can't remember what it is) in the shape of a giraffe! He said it's perfect for giving nervous kids "giraffe kisses" to check their reflexes. Too cute!
This week Pete moved in to the emergency department. With the new rotation comes a much better schedule. He's doing shift work and is only on call for c-sections. Yay for being able to have dinner together again!
