Welcome to Noah!

3 Dec

My cousin Chris and his wife Rickie welcomed their first child, Noah, into the world late last night. We hear that all are doing well and that Grandpa Carlton loves to hold him! We are looking forward to meeting him soon and hope to have pictures to post.

It is busy year for babies on both sides! Kerry’s cousin Todd and his wife had a baby earlier in the Fall. Kerry’s sister Erin and her husband Cory are expecting a baby boy any day now. And, my cousin David and his wife had a little girl last month. And, we are 4 months away from our little girl!

Cool movie

1 Dec

I checked out National Geographic’s In the Womb special from the library (set your DVR- it will be airing on Nat Geo on December 12th at 4am) and we watched it between football games on Sunday. Basically, the film follows a woman through her pregnancy and shows really cool photos and video of her baby. But, one of the fun things we actually learned is that even in the womb, everyone has a dominant hand. So, will Baby V be a lefty like Mom or a righty like Dad? Of course, Mom is hoping for a lefty 🙂 Statistically, when one parent is left handed and the other right handed, the child in 80% of cases will be right handed (that does leave me with a 20% chance AND since my dad is left handed I think the odds may be better). We looked at the ultrasound photos from a few weeks ago and in one picture her left hand is up but in the other picture both hands are by her head so there is really no clear favorite.

Overall, great movie! These two viewers give it two thumbs up.
