Batman and his baby......bro? sis? Read on!

Heeeeey bloggers! Well, yesterday was a long day at two different doctors. There had been some concern about the length of my cervix (interesting, I know) because of a procedure a couple of years ago. Because of this, we visited a high risk prenatal doctor and got the uber ultrasound. Not only did we get good news ( my cervix is totally fine!!) We also found out the sex of the baby!
Oh, you wanna know?
First, some pictures of my sweet little Batman...

Movie time?

CF has finally managed to cheese for the camera...It's a little fake, but adorable!

Batman sings the blues, baby!

Showing of his Bat moves

My hero!

Now, here is our superhero checking out pics of his baby SISTER!!!!






Charlie decided to cuddle, all on his own!






I almost came up off the table I was so excited when the told us. I seriously would have been happy either way, but I have just felt that it was girl the whole time, and I had gotten super excited about girly stuff. Almost ALL of my girlfriends are the mommies of only boys. We practically have a baseball team of cute little boys. Last night happened to be our girls night out, so it was fun to announce to the gang that we finally have a cheerleader. :)

Now some pictures from the ultrasound:


She only weighs 4 ounces, so she still has a long way to go. The black area on her head is where her skull is still fusing together. Amazing!


She was very active on the moniter, and here she is rubbing her eyes, like she is tired. It looks like she is tired of being photographed!



It's hard to really see facial features yet, but we were amazed by the pictures and getting to see her up close. What a boost to us...We have been a little worried for the last week. I can't wait to break out the pink, the butterflies, and the baby Uggs! :) I know Charlie will be a great big brother, and very protective of his sister. He already likes to talk to the baby!
Adam and I had some pretty comical conversations throughout the day about names. We simply cannot agree on one. It's almost impossible. But it's a fun problem to have, and we have plenty of time. I will post some new pictures of me and the belly soon, I promise!
Oh, and Dierdre....this is getting eerie, no? Hehe...
Thanks for sharing our good news with us here!
Love to all of you and your families!

Love it! Great close photos of your little girl....and on the very positive plus side (that close picture didn't look at you and speak with a Freddy face ala Part V) Sorry, that is the first thing that came to mind psycho that I am. But really, I was surprised to see the detail and how you can really see a little lady in there. So happy for you.....so so happy!!!!!

I'll just keep her in here until she has reached maximum cuteness!

OH my goodness, we're living parallel lives! I am so so happy for you, and your little bean is adorable already. Those 3D ultrasounds are totally crazy!! Charlie is going to make a wonderful big brother. He and Sidamo should swap cell numbers one of these days—they have a lot to talk about!

Cindy said...

Congratulations--that is wonderful and exciting news! Charlie is going to be such a fantastic big brother to his baby sister and you and Adam get to be such wonderful parents to your son and DAUGHTER! I love the pictures of Charlie cuddling the u/s photos!

Mrs. Baker said...

Oh congrats!!!!
We have been in lots of discussion over the past few weeks about what direction to go on baby #2 (Habtamu comes home next month and will be 4 before we know it) and we decided to start trying to have one through birth once things settle in with him....so our families will look a lot alike.
We are so happy that we chose to adopt first so that he can be a part of the pregnancy process!!! How amazing! Congrats!

Mrs. Baker said...

PS: We just bought those same pjs for little Habi last week :)

Handlyrics said...

The 3D ultrasound is great. Congrats.

Chatter said...

Wooohoooo!!! Congratulations :) :). Those pictures are amazing. I can't believe ultrasounds these days. Thanks for the pics of Charlie. He is too cute!

Love the pictures. Sawyer kept his hands over his face most of the time during the many u/s we had. (Camera shy, I guess) Congrats on a baby sister for Charlie. One drama queen to go with the laid back little guy. Girls definitely bring a new dynamic to the world. There are definitely more styles for the girls (Hair, clothing, shoes).

Can't wait to meet Charlie (and baby sister when it's time).
