family member #4.

And I guess I failed to include in the last post an update on our fourth family member. Are we really going to be a family of FOUR?? From his latest photo shoot, here's Mr. Fetus, giving us all a big kiss.
He looks healthy from all the ultrasounds, so I may only have to do one or two more towards the end of the pregnancy to make sure his placenta doesn't just check out on us like Carson's did.

This child is a MOVER. I never felt Carson kick and move like this baby does. One time I sat with my laptop propped up on my belly, and the computer just about jumped off my lap when there was a sharp movement from the inside. He keeps me (and sometimes Rick too, depending on the cuddling proximity) awake during the night with his endless dances. I hope this doesn't mean he's going to be high energy... I cringe in fear when I come across books or articles with titles like, "Your Difficult Child," or "Taming the Spirited Child." Pleeeease not this one.

And... here is another ultrasound picture. Most of the pictures have looked like a normal baby, but the more I look at this one, the more it makes me wonder what on earth this child is going to look like. His upper lip comes out further than his odd little nose! Let's just hope it's a bad angle. Ten more weeks and we'll see what he really looks like!
