Family Affair

We've had a busy weekend!  Mom and Dad came down on Thursday night to spend the weekend with us.  We worked hard on Friday (shopping can take a lot out of you!) and played hard on Saturday.  (I'll update about our shopping trip later this week...wait until you see all of the baby stuff we have in our house now!)

On Saturday morning, Abi, Mom, Dad and I headed down to Watch Me Grow Ultrasound to meet Shawn and Debbie.  It was our second 3D ultrasound!  We were so excited to see how much our Little Man had grown since our last visit about nine weeks ago.

Shawn and I got to head into the ultrasound room first, so we could set up and get a sneak peek at our Little One.  We also got to hear the heartbeat before everyone came into the room.  After a few minutes, everyone else joined us.  They sat around the giant TV screen and were able to experience everything we saw! 

I wasn't surprised to see that our Little Man was stubborn yet again!  He would not move his hand away from his face throughout the ultrasound!  Luckily, our tech was able to get creative, and we did get a few shots of him without the blockage of his little hand.  We were all able to see and hear his heartbeat, and see him kicking his feet, turning his head, waving his hands, grabbing his feet, opening his eyes, spreading his toes, and even trying to stick his foot into his mouth!  (YUCK!)

He's definately grown since our last visit.  It seems like he's running out of room in there, and I can only imagine how cramped he'll be in the coming weeks!  Poor little guy!

Here's what everyone had to say about our 3D ultrasound:

Mom:  It was such a great experience and I can’t wait to meet him!

Dad:  Its so much more than seeing four pictures.  It was awesome.  I was really impressed with the open eyes.

Abi:  That was cool.  I liked it when he did the I love you sign.  And I liked his heartbeat, too.  And I like my new “Big Sister” bracelet.

Shawn:  It showed how stubborn how Aubrey is, and she’s worn off on our baby!  I do like how every time Aubrey crosses her legs, the baby does the same thing.

At the end of our session, Mom and Dad bought a teddy bear for our Little Man.  When you push his belly, you can hear a recording of his heartbeat!  We also received a DVD recording of our visit, and a CD of pictures!  Here are a few of our favorites:

My favorite:  Spreading his toes!

Shawn's favorite:  Trying to eat his foot

Abi's favorite:  The Peace Sign

Mom's favorite:  He's signing "I Love You"

Dad's favorite:  Little Man's eye is open
