Up Close and Personal with Baby Bailey

Today we had a 4D ultrasound done at our perinatologist's office. Jason and I were quite nervous as we knew what facial deformities we would be looking for. But . . . it ended up being a wonderfully peaceful visit. This little guy moved all over the whole time and he has now turned into the "head down" position. The best part of the whole visit was to watch him move his face, yawn, smile and making sucking faces. The tech commented on how expressive his face was . . . and I realized that that was a tender mercy to see his range of facial movements. He even stuck his tongue out at us and "blew kisses". Of course, our nerves won't be completely calmed until we are holding this little monkey in our arms - but we have one more thing to be grateful for. I can't believe how much I already love him!

I know ultrasound pictures are always a little difficult to decipher . . . but I think these ones turned out pretty good.

How fun and what a tender mercy indeed (including feeling the baby move that night). I'm anxious for you to hold this little one in your arms and get to experience him in every way.

I love the pictures!! These 4D ultrasounds still blow me away!! Hudson just looked so smushed in his pictures, I love how clear they are! How fun that he was so active and so expressive too, I bet he has all kinds of things to tell you and he just can't wait to get here!!

I couldn't find your email Lindsay but I wanted to let you know about these two blogs:
http://adailyscoop.blogspot.com/
(this lady's 1 year old drowned in their backyard and she is pregnant now- she's a friend of a friend of a friend)
http://thebutlerfamily15.blogspot.com/ (this sweet little girl is my son's age-almost 2 now-and she was run over by a family friend in their driveway. She is doing better now but she had a stroke and they weren't sure for a while that she would live-she is the cousin of some families in my ward)
