Notorious B.A.B.Y.

Things we learned about Em Dash today during a 4-D ultrasound

She has a cute button nose, nice full lips and as the U/S tech pointed out, "a super cute cupid's bow."
Big lips

She has chubby cheeks, not unlike Notorious B.I.G.
Chubby cheeks

She likes to smile and stick out her tongue to taste her amniotic fluid. Little did she know that the 4-D ultrasound would be followed with a trip to The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills, giving her plenty more deliciousness to taste.
Smiling

She's very contemplative. See her little hand on her chin? Ah, our little thinker.
Our little thinker

She's approximately 4 glorious lbs, putting her right on track for where she should be at this point.

The ultrasound place was out of paper to give us hard copies of the photos, and apparently they want to try to get us even BETTER photos of Em Dash, so I'm going back next week for a "do over," in addition to the awesomeness we've already seen. We're also getting a DVD of the session set to some of my favorite songs.

If you haven't already guessed, my heart is about to explode. Is it possible to fill it with even MORE love for our little one?

  2. Okay, so I'm going to lay it out there and say I think ultrasounds are creepy. Keep in mind I had more ultrasounds than I can count when I was pregnant with my little spud. So when I say that these are the least-creepy pictures ever, I mean that as a compliment. I mean...Nannette, little Em Dash is downright CUTE in these pictures!!! In that last picture? She is female Brent. WOW.

    Freaking adorable. I don't think I've ever said that about an ultrasound - even my own daughter's!

  4. I think this is Cool. In a sort of Sci-Fi Way.

    Except that it's Not Fi! It's All Sci!!!

    And that's Creepy! Well, it would be if it weren't A Baby. Wouldn't it be Funny if they did The Ultrasound and found like, Your Lost House Keys and Stuff?

  8. Aw little Em-dash! Adorable! Those cheeks are seriously awesome!

    Did you do the 4D at a ultrasound center, or does your doc have on in his practice?

  9. So fun! I'd love to do this, but I'm too cheap. I'll just have to stick with the 4D ones they did during my first trimester...which are just weird, lol.

  12. I wonder if she's thinking in the last picture "Hmm, who are these people watching me? Could that be mommy and daddy?"

    Great pictures and thanks for sharing!

  19. I had no idea they could get this kind of images - I'm still thinking of the grainy traditional ultrasounds, where only the parents and the doctor can make out a vague outline of a baby. These are so exciting! And sooo chubby-faced in that second photo, she's going to be adorable.

  25. Congratulations! I'm a lurker comming out of hiding. I have to say, I got a bit teary eyes reading this post. I have a six year old daughter myself. It just reminded me of my experience with my pregnancy. Also, I love this: "I never thought through love we'd be making one as lovely as she.
