I would like to introduce you to my new favorite person.

Meet Lady Ackerman
Lady is a little over four months along right now. We were surprised, but overjoyed to find that she would be an addition to our family, expected May 18, 2012.

Some of her favorite activities include sucking the life out of me, leaving me feeling drained and irritable. She loves to irritate my stomach, especially with the food I love most. Oh, and she sits Indian style. Seriously, through her entire ultrasound (slash photo session) she sat Indian style (as you can kind of see above). The ultrasound tech is confident it is because I sit that way constantly. I don't know how much I believe that, but I like to entertain the idea. I think it's cute she may already take after me.

Oh, and she likes to make me really, really fat. I work for the OB, remember? I know how much weight I am supposed to gain overall. I'm not oblivious. But, even with my careful, conscious efforts, I am packing on the pounds. Far more than I need to be. I think I'll invest in a tent to wear.

We love our little Lady. Although her daddy was hoping for a boy to throw around, she's already won his heart. And mine.

Another benefit of working for a really cool doc: I get awesome ultrasounds, like the one above. Monthly.
