AXEL (to be determined) ANDERSON
Today we had our "official" ultrasound. It was such a cool experience. Even though we have had 3 other ultrasounds along the way, each one was at such a different stage that each time has been really cool, because we get to see him grow and progress. The other good thing is we finally have pictures!
We got to see all his organs and bones, and they confirmed that yes he is a boy. He was being a pill and had his back turned to us the entire time, (we all know who he gets that from). Luckily our ultrasound tech was awesome, and was able to get some really good shots and measurements. She kept reassuring us that everything was "so good", and "so cute!" It was funny I really liked her. She also said "It's definitely a boy because he keeps flashing me his boy parts"
I do want to say that my little widget has MUCH more room in his "Cyber uterus" than Axel, poor guy had his feet all the way above his head!
After measuring him she did some sort of calculation and said he is 1 lb! I was pretty surprised that he is already a pound. I know he has like 6 more to go (or 8 more to go if he takes after the Andersons) but still one pound is pretty big.
The ultra sound totally pumped us up, and we both are super excited and are now wishing the next 4 and a half months would speed on by. I am so grateful that all went well, and that he is healthy and strong, it is pretty much the best Mothers Day gift a girl could ask for.
Here is his cute little "Jack the skeleton" face and hand, I can't get enough of this picture. It's my favorite.
This is a pretty good shot of his head and body.
Sorry to state the obvious, but I feel like I need to point out his leg.
One of the very first things she pointed out to us was his little feet. She showed us his feet a lot.
And here is the all famous "It's a Boy" shot. At first we thought that he just had really bull legged legs, but then the tech pointed out that the "lower leg" was his arm and hand and that its on an angle.
