Our beautiful boy

Happy Valentines Day!

I got to spend the day with my wonderful husband Matt (more on that later), but yesterday we got to see our other Valentine, Baylor.

We had our 4D ultrasound and were able to spend about 20 minutes looking at our beautiful baby boy. It is amazing to me how advanced technology is--that we can see our son, in utero, and what he looks like! And of course, he is the most beautiful thing in the whole world!

As soon as they started the ultrasound and we saw his face I said "Oh my gosh Matt! He looks just like you!". Everyone else that we have shown the pictures to (that knows both of us) agree that he already favors his handsome daddy. No complaints here from me! He was so cute and bunched up the whole time, and his feet were all the way by his head at one point! Crazy how crowded it is in there already, and we still have about 11 weeks to go. He also kept smiling and even stuck his tongue out at one point. This kids' got a great personality already, but hey, I may be biased.

We got a DVD of the whole ultrasound and a ton of pictures, so here are a few of my favorite pictures.

Look at his little hand balled up on the left side of his face, his other arm is curled around his neck.

More of a side view...FYI the black spots on the top of his head are the shadow of the ultrasound wand

Kinda confusing, but here's what's going on in this pic: on the left you see his leg and foot, in the middle the balled up fist again (next to his face), the bottom right his other foot and mid-top right his face. He is very flexible in there!

My fav...look at that sweet nose and lips
Our doctor's appointment went great. Everything looks great, and we are measuring 29/30 weeks, which is right on (I am 29 weeks this week).

Now we just have to be patient and wait 10-11 more weeks until he arrives. The anticipation is hard especially after seeing how beautiful he is! 


  1. It really is amazing what technology can do these days. I am in love with the last pic as well b/c you can see his face so good and his precious little elbow! Adorable! I know he has a little while longer, but I honestly can NOT wait to meet him!

  2. Eeekkk...so exciting! It is so amazing all the detail you can see! I know you can't wait till he's here -- But these next 10 weeks or so will fly by. He is beautiful!
