A year ago yesterday, we recorded your heartbeat for Auntie Becky to hear. She wanted to know the rate so she could determine if you were a boy or girl. At this point I was starting to waver. I originally thought you were definitely a boy, but started leaning towards girl at the end. It was mainly because I wanted to use the name Evelyn Sarah.
Your big sister Ava loved coming to all of your doctor appointments. She would get so excited when the doctor used ‘the doppler’ to hear your heart beat. She would try to imitate the sound – Ba boomp, ba boomp, ba boomp. After you were born, the nurse let Ava hear your heart beat again. She wasn’t as impressed with the stethoscope.
I am so happy we recorded a few of these sessions so I can treasure the sound of your beating heart.
