Baby Joy

I had an ultrasound today so we got to see the baby!!! Everything appears to be growing as it should. It is so amazing to see this little tiny person (11 ounces and about 16 cm) moving around, with a functioning heart and all the fingers, toes and vertebrae that grown-ups have!

In this picture, you can see the baby's profile. It looks like the baby has the same nose as my oldest daughter. But that doesn't meant the baby is a girl -- my nephew has the same nose.


The baby was exercising or practicing some kind of sport during the ultrasound because here he or she is, laying on his or her back, stretching legs overhead and blowing bubbles.


The official due date is May 8, 2009 so you will all have to stay-tuned to see if this is a boy or girl.
