New Toys

We've invested in a few new toys over the past few days and as we test them out, we had a little something we wanted to share.

Rob and I did some test shots with the dogs last night with our new video camera. (Don't judge the quality by this video-- we only had a small lamp on, so it was very dark.) I'm excited that we have something to potentially capture the baby moving on our NT Scan next week. And obviously, we'll have much bigger things to film in September.

Today, the doppler arrived and I was so excited to come home from work and try it. Rob wasn't home from work yet, but I laid down and tried it. I was easily able to find my own heartbeat but I was unable to find Baby Blakely. I was so disappointed. When Rob came home, we tried again and he was instantly able to find it!! It was so much fun to hear it and it's reassuring to know that we can listen whenever we want. The sound was very faint, but I know that it will get louder and stronger as baby gets bigger.

It's amazing-- not only the technology that we have available, but also the baby growing inside me!


  1. Aw that is so awesome! Congrats again, I love all these milestones!

  2. Yay for the new toy! I can imagine hearing that sound is SO reassuring. I would be using that thing every night. Thank God for technology! :)
