Baby Photos

Josh and I went in this morning for the 2nd and final sonogram of Baby R. According to the Doctor, everything looks great. The heartbeat, length and weight are normal. He/she weighs about 12 ounces now (but somehow his/her mommy has already managed to gain 12 pounds!!). We were able to see pictures of the spine and legs. We could see the baby moving around and at one point, one of his/her hands with all the perfectly formed fingers was very clear. The technician tried to point out the kidneys and liver, but to our untrained eyes, they pretty much looked like cloudy grey blobs.

Here are two pictures--both of the face. The first one is pretty clear. You can see the lens of the left eye and the two fists up by his/her face. The second picture is harder to make out but you can see the nose and open mouth if you look carefully.

For those of you who are dying to ask. . . No, we don't know the sex. So even if you pester us, we wouldn't be able to tell you =)

We're very excited and can't wait to meet this little one! Only 4 1/2 more months!
