A Peek at Baby B

Yesterday we had our 23 week ultrasound. It was amazing to see the little bugger arching it's back, pulling it's feet up to it's mouth (almost sucking on it's toes!) sticking out it's tongue (!!!), turning it's head towards the wand, and even seemingly smiling at the camera!

You probably noticed we didn't find out what it was (all the "it's"). The sonographer didn't even look, so no one knows, which makes it a lot easier to not think about, or not have the temtation to call the doctor in a moment of weakness and find out. I did have a moment of weakness as we walked up to the appointment, but Stephen asked me which surprise I want more, and I want the delivery room surprise the most!


This little one has the same type of face and nose as Truitt did. In fact these ultrasound pictures look just like Truitt's. I wouldn't be surprised if they look alot alike, which is fine with me, 'cause my little guy is so cute, if I do say so myself! The only "bad" news we got was that Baby B is in a breach position, but the sonographer and the midwife assured me that this is fine and the baby still has a ton of room and time to turn. Truitt was head down from the get go, so this is new for me. They said not to worry until 37 weeks, but I hope this little one turns way before then! Otherwise Baby B is perfect: a four chamber heart, a healthy brain, no spots on the kidneys or spine, two arms, two legs, two ears, two eyes! But I won't feel totally secure until I hold this precious little one in my arms and count the fingers, the toes, and give it a ton of kisses!

Baby B is so cute already, I'm sure he/she will be just as cute as little Truitt, although he is quite possible the cutest kid I've ever seen! Your updates on Truitt are great, sorry this comment is so late being posted! I miss you and can't wait to see you at Christmas, by that time you will be "very" pregnant and I can't wait to see your cute belly!

Cute photos! We had our ultrasound this week too! Baby B's cousin is also feet down at this point but our doctor said it's perfectly normal and those smart little babies know exactly when to make the switch. No need to worry!

Oh, beautiful baby, I think "she's" going to fill your life with so much joy, there is nothing like watching your child become a big brother, congrats!
