Its A…… ;-)

Ok, yesterday was our big ultrasound!! We were able to see the baby in pretty good detail. The technician looked at all different organs and took measurements to make sure everything is developing properly. Everything looked great!! We saw the heart and its chambers, the lungs, kidneys, stomach, mouth, hands, feet, bones in the legs/arms, and brain. The baby is measuring 13oz!! She said that is right on track for about 20 weeks which is what I am. I have my follow up appointment with my doctor on Friday so I’m sure she will talk to me more then. Here are some pictures from the latest ultrasound!


A good profile shot!


Little mouth open!!

After the ultrasound, Matt, Cassie and I drove to the beach for the day! We had never taken Cassie to the beach before, so it was kind of a birthday present for her (She turned 2 on Sunday). It was so beautiful!! Cass loved the beach! Her nose was going so fast!! She couldn’t believe all the new smels. Here are a couple of pictures from our trip:

What used to be a family with mostly boys is quickly adding to the girl side!! Two sisters in laws this year and a baby girl! Watch out boys!! πŸ˜‰
