I'm sorry. I can't help it. I am madly in love with this new little person that will soon be entering our lives and I'm afraid that I just have to admit that I'm absolutely going to be one of those obnoxious grandmothers who talks about her grandchild to anyone who will listen. And....even if they don't listen, I'm still gonna talk about him.
Sarah had her medical ultrasound on Thursday, but this morning they went for the non-medical 3D ultrasound. I thought the picture of his face in the last one was incredibly clear. Well....that was nothing compared to THESE!!!!
He is SMILING!! In the womb, he's smiling!! Know why? He knows that he has a grandmother waiting for him that is going to be completely blind to any faults he might ever have!
Along with a cd of 39 still pictures, they also got a dvd of tons of video of him moving around with a baby themed soundtrack. Priceless! I love this one of him with his mouth open
I love this one too. It's like he's bored with this whole picture taking thing and he's thinking, "Would you all PLEASE just let me grow in peace?" They also say he's "chunky", get a load of the meat on his little arm....and he's got 11 more weeks to grow! His mother weighed 9 pounds 1 ounce. I can't wait to see how much he weighs.
Check out his meaty little thigh.

Our life is so incredibly busy at the moment that I barely get to check email anymore, but when Sarah Kate shared this picture with me from her ultrasound today I just knew I had to get on here and show him off!
Can you believe that little face? It's almost like an actual photograph instead of an ultrasound. The US tech says that he is a big baby. Expected weight at this stage is about 2.5 pounds and he is about 3.1 pounds today. All I know is that I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on him. I've been collecting all my "Grandma supplies" and by the time he gets here I'll be all set up.
They are continuing to do a lot of ultrasounds and Sarah is doing great. She does have placenta previa and it's not showing any signs of moving. If it doesn't she will have to have a c-section which she is upset about, but hey, healthy baby and mom is the only thing that matters.
Patrick and Amber closed on their house and he's moved in to it. I would say that I miss him, but we've been over there painting and fixing up ever since he moved in and I'm heading back there in the morning. It's so much fun that it doesn't feel like work. I have taken a lot of before pictures and will post them along with the after pictures as we get things done.
I'm hoping that at some point soon things will settle down and I'll have more time to play here.
