Counting to FOUR

Read 'em and weep...

And weep I did!

That, my friends, is our baby's perfectly perfect heart.

A heart with 4 beautiful chambers.

All that I can say is...

Wednesday, February 15, 2012 was a very good day at the Ritchie house.  
After 20 long weeks of wondering, Matt and I finally got a peek at our little one's little ticker!  Talk about a whirlwind of emotions.  It was at this very same appointment a little over 2 years ago that we learned about Charlotte's heart, and as positive as I have tried to be, I couldn't help but prepare myself for the big "what if..."  We still have an appointment scheduled for an echo next week to take a closer look, but today we breathing sighs of relief. 

The minute I saw that heart I knew.
It was beautiful.
And just when I thought our day couldn't get any better
we got to see his face.
