3D Ultrasound

    This has been a baby filled few days around here.  My mom came into town late Wednesday night to spend a few days with us and it was great.  We went on Thursday morning with her to a 3D/4D ultrasound to see little Jude.  It was really cool, but of course he wasn’t being very cooperative and was breach, meaning his face was turned towards S’s spine and he had his hands up on his face just about the whole time.  I guess his hands are the most interesting thing in there right now.  The lady doing the ultrasound was funny, she tired really hard to get some good shots of him.  She had S lay in a few funny positions, jiggled and lightly smacked S’s belly and had her get up to do some stretches and had her eat tiny piece of chocolate.  He moved some eventually and we got 1-2 shots of his face.  There is only really one though that looks all that great in photo though.  We got a CD of the pictures, a few printed out and then a DVD of the whole thing.  The DVD is pretty cool.  Here is the best picture from it.
Isn’t he a cutie?  We have another appointment set up for the beginning of December when S’s mom will be here for our Austin baby shower.  He will be pretty big then and the ultrasound lady said that then we will get some really good shots.  Very exciting.

       While my mom was here we also did some baby shopping.  We got S some new maternity clothes and a few outfits for Jude.  We also tried to get a glider but were unsuccessful.  They are just either super ugly, uncomfortable, or $800.  I think that we are going to keep our eyes open for something used for the next few months and if nothing comes up I think we are just going to get a rocker chair from Ikea and have my mom get us the travel system instead.  Also it was annoying to go to every baby store ever pretty much and they just don’t have much cute boy stuff.  It was all so full of girl stuff, but the boy stuff was either nothing or just pastel blue sports themed or pastel blue cars and trucks.  I want a few more crib sheets and our nursery is all about bright colors and there just isn’t much of anything out there that is bright.  I think that’s weird too because babies can’t really see pastel colors, they like bright high contrast stuff anyway.  I think I’m going to have to just make my own crib skirt and possibly learn how to actually sew and make my own crib sheets.  I have a sewing machine, I just don’t know how to use it (also not sure if it works, it’s old and I’ve never looked under the case).

    Our Tulsa baby shower is only two weeks and a day away, I’m so excited!  It will be so nice to see everyone we love and have a quick weekend away.

Time to clean the kitchen.
