dear ziggy,

this morning we woke up extra early to get to the hospital for a very important appointment. every traffic light hit was green, and we were getting so very excited.

the quiet-as-a-mouse technician showed us all around your little 5 ounce body. your perfect little head, one inch long feet, two kidneys, little brain (i'll work on that for you), and little lips. russ could've sworn you were licking them, probably enjoying that slimfast shake i just drank.

then you got the hiccups, and we all laughed at how much your little body moved with each one. she showed us your swollen belly, and little bum (you must get that from me) and then FINALLY she said "there are the little boy parts!" (you get those from your dad.)

we knew it all along. it feels so good to have someone else tell us for sure. we've called you ziggy since you were only a zygote, sometimes ziggy stardust... even though david bowie gives me the willies. we'll work on a new name for you.

we love you, even though it feels a lot bigger than that.

love, m + d.
