Baby's First Photo

Today was my 16 week check up. My Dr's office decided to run some tests-due to some slight pain that I have been feeling. Luckily everything came back perfect and our baby's heartbeat sounded great, but they still wanted to do an ultrasound, just to make sure. In the afternoon Greg met up with me for an ultrasound and we got the first glimpse at our beautiful baby. It was the most amazing thing ever. When the tech started, we could only see the top of the baby's head. But then our baby turned and for the rest of the appointment it was like he/she was staring right at us. So here are the images of our baby, looking right at us. Greg was a little freaked out at first because the baby looks like a skeleton, but the tech explained to him that is what babies look like at 16 weeks. The tech was also convinced that we are having a boy-she got a few glimpses of something, even though our baby made it difficult to see-our child is already modest and shy. She was still convinced the it was little boy Paxton. We will double check when we have our 20 week ultrasound.

I love baby Skelator! Just kidding, he is so cute. I found the ultrasound that we had done when I was 16 weeks prego with Mattie, and that is exactly what it looked like! Can't wait for the next ultrasound.

That is so awesome Stephanie! The one we have of Rylan looking at us, at 21 weeks, is SO freaky! He looks like a pirate b/c one eye looks like it has a patch over it. It reminded me of the monkey in Pirates of the Carribean! (not good, considering it was MY BABY)Anyways, keep us posted on your modest little baby! :)

Stephanie,

It has been a long time since I have seen or talked to you. It was fun to see all your pictures and what you have been up to. Congrats on the new baby. That is really exciting. It was good to hear from you. Keep in touch. Marti

I am so happy that everything is doing great with baby Paxton or should I say Locklin (not sure how you are spelling it). Gavin will be so excited about having a little buddy to play with. Aren't those photo's kinda scary? I remember when we first saw Grace it was the most amazing thing to witness and then the tech printed out a pic and handed it to us and Randy and I were like "is this normal?" She was so scary looking. I didn't even want to put that picture on the fridge to look at because it freaked us out. Then when Gav came along I was like "oh, he'll get fatter and look more normal soon."

I am so happy for you both and this baby is going to be so loved!! Congrats!!
