We’re having a….

BOY!!!!  It turns out that he is not modest at all- which I think is more like me than Jerod.

Sal, our technician, was the one who typed "boy parts".  We saw this from a profile angle and it looked like a a little elephant trunk!

We also learned a few cool things about our little bun in the oven.  He weighs 10 ounces this week and the sonogram lady, Sal, thought the due date would be more likely the 23 of November instead of the 20th.  His head was only 4 centimeters across (from temple to temple over the top of his head) and amlost 6 centimeters from the base of his neck to the top of his forehead.

His leg is at the top of the picture facing down toward his head.  It kinda looks like he is kissing his knee.  You can kinda see his big toe sticking out 🙂

his foot

We were at the doctor’s office for what seemed like forever.  Our little moon did not have a problem showing us the family jewels, but he did have a problem letting us check out his heart and his spine.  The sonogram lady, Sal, kept pushing on my tummy until I almost threw up in her office.

So this picture is a little freaky.  But it's cool because it is taken looking into Little Moon's face.  The very far right of the picture is Little Moon's round belly and if you look to the left, then you see his little skull.  You can kinda see the pupil in his right eye.  If you cock your head to the left side, you might be able to make out his forehead, two eye sockets, little nose and chin.

That little punk in my belly still would not give us a good look at his spine.  It works out though because Sal said our  OB doctor (Dr. Meyer) might order another sonogram in the future!  This is cool because we brought a video camera to the appointment but the battery was completely dead. (Jerod was really irritated.)  Maybe the baby heard us talking and decided to be difficult so we’d have to reschedule?  Toward the end of the sonogram, Sal told us that our baby was being stubborn by not moving around.  Again, I think it is safe to say he might be more like his momma than his daddy at this point.

The bottom left portion of the picture shows Little Moon's head from the side view.  If you look to the right, you will see his neck, belly and spine.  At the top of the picture is his arm and it looks like he might be nibbling on his thumb- which is a bad habit we will break.  You can kinda make out the profile of his face if you follow his arm and fingers.

God is so amazing because we had a sonogram only 12 weeks ago and Little Moon was only about a centimeter long in total!  Now his skull is at least 4 times that size and he’s only been in my belly 12 extra weeks!  This is what he looked like in April!

Little Moon at 7 weeks!

    Now you definitely need to move to the neighborhood so your little guy can join the crew of boys that we’re breeding out here.

    And I echo Jessica K’s comment that you should post belly pics – you need to bask in this period of time where people think that weight gain is cute!
