Baby Otte is on the way!

If you hadn't heard the wonderful news, Heidi and I are expecting our first child!!!! Heidi had her first ultrasound yesterday--what an experience! When we saw our baby's heart beating, we both started crying. Unbelievable! This is quite a good shot (I'm told) for 10 weeks. Baby Otte is just chillin' on his or her back, giving us a good view of face, hands, and belly. What a gift!

I desire that our child will someday pray:

For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother's womb.
I will give thanks to You,
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.

Psalm 139:13-14

Beautiful indeed!

Sarah, you and John are hereby recognized as honorary aunt and uncle (providing you don't pronounce 'aunt' like the little insect).

Jason, sorry we missed you when you were up in MA. Congrats on your graduation!

Everyone's been saying our baby looks most like me right now: bald, not very tall. What do you think?!
