This week our family went to Mommy’s newest check-up at Vanderbilt; even Grandma got to go with us because she is in town right now from California.
To our surprise, one of the newest sonogram pictures was 3-D. Your brother Jack immediately responded as we all saw the picture for the first time, up on the giant TV monitor:
“That picture is creepy. It’s an old rock man.”
While it’s always great to see new pictures of you, the most important thing is that the technician confirmed you are looking real good. In other words, you are a healthy baby.
We have prayed every night as a family for your health. So we didn’t take it for granted to hear that you are doing well.
On a lighter note, the technician explained to us that your butt is up high at the “top” of Mommy’s baby bump; which explains why Mommy keeps getting poked in her right side, that’s your elbows and hands.
Plus, she confirmed you are (still) a girl. I admit that Mommy and I had doubts in the backs of our minds that we might be that family who learned they were actually having the other gender baby.
But no, we won’t have to be repainting the room or changing out your wardrobe. We specifically asked the technician, and she officially confirmed, “Yep, it’s still a girl inside there.”
Speaking of your bedroom, with Grandma in town, your room is a little fuller.
There is now a really cool lamp that perfectly matches the hair ribbon holder, which also matches the bird decals on the walls.
And I obviously am proud of the outfit Mommy picked out for you this week: Daddy’s Sweetheart.
We now officially can say you will be born next month. April 21st is just 7 weeks away.
