Things I Learned Today...

First, I had a Dr. Appt today and they did an ultrasound. I learned that babies not only have eyelids, but they use them. The baby kept opening and closing his eyes while we were watching. It was almost as if he was giving us dirty looks and saying, "Leave me alone, can't you see that I'm trying to sleep here."

I also learned that this baby has hair. Not a lot, and not sure what color, but they could see the hair on the ultrasound. How cool is that? I was really impressed. So, no name yet, but hair.

Just an update for those of you that are interested. He was weighing in at just over 5 pounds, which is more than K weighed at birth. And I still have 6 weeks to go. So, things are looking really good.

And what does that mean? I am going to go to Virginia next week and have the baby there. I know, its kind of a late decision to be making, but we decided it was best for our family and so that is what we are doing (**After being convinced by my wonderful and good looking husband that the primary will survive without me). The Dr. gave me the okay to travel anytime in the next two weeks so as long as I can make it there by then, I should be alright.

Here are some of the pictures from today.

By far the best shot, of him on his side, eye open, dirty look and all. If you notice, he is sleeping with his hands up by his face, laying on his left arm.

Just a foot shot. She had to practically go to my ribs to get this.
Another picture of his face sleeping, this time with eyes closed.

I'm so very happy that you will be with your "wonderful and good looking husband" when your son will be born! When do you leave? Do you need any help house-watching while you're gone? I remember that you came faithfully to my house to water our plants, I'm ready/willing to help you out in any way. :o)
