the level II ultrasound at tampa general went incredibly well, if you exclude the part where andy and i got lost in a parking garage. really though, trying to drive anywhere near the hospital was horrible. who puts a hospital on an island?
anyway, my absurdly awesome friend ashley and her very nearly one year old daughter evie accompanied us to the ultrasound which was really exciting. the sonographer was easily the nicest medical professional that i've encountered thus far in my pregnancy (but i guess that isn't saying much). she went out of her way to explain what we were seeing on the screen, chatted with us, and- to my absolute surprise- showed us the baby in 4D! i had suspicions that, being a higher quality machine, it would have the capabilities but i just assumed that since the scan was for pretty specific medical purposes we wouldn't get such an opportunity. it was amazing. and beyond all of that she gave us seven photos, including 3D.
isn't he handsome?
on the orlando front- we have an apartment! it's smaller than what we're used to but it's cute and affordable and only a mile from UCF. we couldn't ask for more. as andy is meant to start working on the 30th we couldn't wait till the first of february to start a lease, but luckily the current tenant was already intending to leave early and we were able to buy the last week of his rent. it's ours starting the 22nd.
our current apartment is a complete mess of boxes and there are these strange bare patches- there's nothing on the refrigerator door, our tall bookshelf is gone (it wouldn't have survived the move), shelves are bare. the strange combination of clutter and complete lack of clutter is really bizarre to me.
