This "New Baby" has definitely become the most photographed of our children in utero. Since I had Alena, my OB has moved into a practice by himself which makes for a even more relaxed atmosphere. The nurse both today and last month just checked the heartbeat with the ultrasound machine which means I got a cute picture. She does it really quick but just from the one picture, I can't believe the change in just four weeks. I mean look at this little thing - at almost 16 weeks he/she looks just like a little person. Today it's arms were even moving around - so cute. Another great thing about the pictures is that it makes it easy for Gabe and Mya to see that there really is a baby in there. Gabe told me, "Look, I think this picture is of a boy." When I asked him how he could tell he said, "Because a girl would have long hair and this baby doesn't have any hair." We'll see how good he is at predicting :)
I had to put these pictures of Alena on because they just make me laugh, and she knows she's funny which makes it even funnier. She wears these things around all the time and really how can you take her seriously looking like this?
