Baby Hamra: 30 weeks

Merry Christmas, only a few short day until the celebrating begins and we couldn't feel more blessed this year. We went back to the doctor last week and everything looked great, his heartbeat was a healthy 150 bpm. The nurse said he is measuring about normal now compared to the 4 weeks ahead he measured last visit. Looks like we have ourselves a little trickster. We go back to the doctor now every 2 weeks so we will continue to post updates. Also last week we started our 6 week birthing Lamaze classes. We love the nurse who is teaching them and it is really helping to calm some of our fears. Special thanks to Megan Johnson, Anna Whitaker and Katrina Appelquist for the amazing Shower Invites that arrived in the mail yesterday, they are so stinking cute!! Can't wait for the shower. Also thanks to Melanie & Sam Blair for the adorable monthly tie stickers to use after he arrives, such a fun idea! Congrats to the Blair's on the news of their pregnancy with twins. Hamlet is excited to have a couple new pals come next summer.
