Meet Our Newest Baby Girl

Yesterday we had the 20 week ultrasound. It was such a fun time. All the kids went with us, the tech (who's been doing this for 20 + years) answered every single question they threw at her, she took her time and let us have fun watching the newest member of our family.
Here she is!


I am always amazed at how perfectly they are formed before they have a chance for life outside the womb. This picture is a perfect illustration of that. I have never seen the entire hand like that on any of my children's ultrasound pictures. Even the Tammy -the tech - said it was special.


We have been working on an anatomy unit for science in school. The kids are having so much fun learning about the baby being "knit together" and how their bodies work. I love how each of these opportunities- school, a new baby, watching ultrasounds- allows them to see more and more of God's ever present hand in our lives.

Tyler of course had a few hilarious comments while we were there. Tammy was showing them the baby's tummy and how full it was. She asked if they thought it was full of chocolate chip cookies. Tyler piped right up, "No, Mommy hasn't been eating any." When Tammy would stop the screen to measure the baby, Tyler was so curious. He said, "Are you pausing the baby?" We all got a good laugh out of that one.

I'd better run! It's time for school to start.

Ultrasounds are pretty cool. My daughter in law just had a 3d one. Wow, those are amazing.

Awww, that hand looks like she's trying to reach out and hold you. We got a great shot of our daughter's foot at her 20 week anatomy scan-- but only because it was covering up her "female parts" and blocking us from finding out her gender!

Stopping by from another blog we both read :)
