And it's a...
A sweet image like this is what I've been keeping in my mind and heart since we found out. It helps as the image of a pink and green nursery fades away. And I'm far more interested in the possibility of a third child now. =) I'm not getting a shopping buddy this time around, but maybe later? Who knows....
Right now, time to focus on snails and puppy dog tails. And little boy snuggles; who can forget about those? Seth is going to LOVE having a brother, I'm sure. They're going to get soooo dirty together. And I'm going to have to get a lot more interested in Legos.
This time around, we got to see some 4D images, and they were really cool. The ultrasound tech was really nice. The baby is measuring about 5 days ahead of the current due date of June 1, but they don't change due dates, so it'll stay the same. He currently weighs 11 oz., and I have plenty of amniotic fluid. My placenta is in the front this time, which explains why movements seem a little more muffled than they did with Seth. He looks a lot like Seth did, but his forehead is shaped a little differently, not quite as prominent.
We got to see him moving his mouth and waving his little fists. It was so good to see him again and get better acquainted! I wish I had an at home ultrasound machine that I could use every day for a little look see. Wouldn't that be cool?
And without further ado, I introduce you to the newest member of this family. Isn't he cute?
