Today has been a full day full of happy sounds: enjoying time with a friend who Hana Kate also happens to adore (Eden professes similar adoration, but prefers to observe from within a 1-foot-radius of her mommy’s arms.), preparing and making food (which HK also happens to adore), and getting to Skype with one of my best friends and one of Hana Kate’s best friends (who Eden also happens to adore). 🙂 And rounding out the day, we also got to hear the heartbeat of our baby for the first time: a very happy sound!
I recorded this video with my phone, mostly so I could record the audio. (I believe there are actually less complicated ways to do this. 🙂 ) I didn’t think of the fact that I was recording my feet instead of the faces of the rest of my family. 🙂 Hearing a baby’s heartbeat for the first time is a beautiful sound, and it’s also reassuring to me that the weeks of morning sickness I’ve experienced aren’t just a placebo effect from seeing a positive pregnancy test.
And some other happy sounds for the day: HK read several words (“cat,” “dad,” “mom,” and “hat”) to our friend Leah!.
