Ultrasounds are amazing to me. What a beautiful, amazing moment to see this little human inside of you- moving around. Our little boy was moving around like crazy today. Flipping his body, moving his arms and legs all around. At one point, it looked like he was sitting Indian style with his hands over his "boy parts." I looked over at Mark (who had PROMISED he would be so excited for either a girl or boy) and could see the amazing joy on his face when he said,
"Wait, is that a penis!?" (not kidding, Mark spotted that thing before our ultrasound tech had a moment to say a word!)
We told Addelyn tonight by showing her the CD of pics from our ultrasound. She is very excited for a baby but was not impressed with the ultrasound pics or our boy announcement. As she looked at the pictures, she said, "Wait, where are the baby pictures? Where is the baby? This doesn't look like a baby! I want to see the baby!"
She thought he should be holding a rattle inside of my belly. I'm sure it does have to be very confusing. I'm wondering what she was imagining when we said we'd bring home pictures from the doctor's office of our baby. She must be processing though because tonight at dinner, she sat quietly for a bit, and then said, "Mommy, pretty soon it is going to be you, daddy, me, and a baby BROTHER!"
