Pictures of You

Dear Baby Hawley,

We got to see you today!  We brought Grandma Hawley with us for the ultrasound and, boy, were we excited!  Here's what you look like at 21 weeks, 4 days.  The technician said you are a very cooperative baby--you moved when she prodded you so she could see everything she needed to and take her measurements.  We asked that we not find out if you are a boy or a girl, so we still don't know!  I love the suspense.

After looking at this picture, Grandma Colby (Grandma Marge, Granny? - still not sure what to call her) responded by saying "It looks like a rabbit to me.  Gracie and Greta will be pleased."  Have no fear, though, we will NOT be feeding you to the cats.

 You may start to wonder about all the cats in our family, though, because after looking at this (incredibly cute, and possibly my favorite) photo of your foot, Ellen said, "Troy and I think that that is one CUTE foot! least we know that you're having a person. Did I ever tell you that I once dreamt that I gave birth to a kitten. True story. It was ridiculous...."  What can I say?  Aunts - you gotta love them.

Here's the last photo of you for the day.  On the left is your head.  You can see two dark holes, which are the eyes, and in the middle of those is a smaller dark spot--your nose!  It looks like you have a very round belly here, too.

How exciting!!!  Today you weigh about 15 ounces.  You are still measuring small, so the technician wants to say your due date is November 9.  The midwife still says November 3, but we know you will come when you are good and ready.

Up next for us is a trip to New York to meet some of the uncles.  I hope you like long car rides, lots of food, and fresh mountain air...
