Two hearts that beat as one

This week we went to the doctor and had a wonderful experience. We heard Charisma's heartbeat! (that is the baby's new name) The nurse pulled out this ancient looking piece of equipment from like Radio Shack or something, and through its crackling, scratchy speaker came a beautiful thump, thump that was our baby. At first she couldn't find the little thing, so I got nervous, but soon enough my fears were replaced by a big smile when I heard that sound for the first time. Megan almost cried, her cheeks were glowing pink with excitement. -John
