Would you like to see what's been growing in my belly??






























Yep, that's our baby!  This was taken about 3 weeks ago at 22 weeks.  I'm almost 25 weeks along which means I only have 15 weeks to go before we get to meet this precious little one.

Hopefully you can tell what you're looking at in these photos.  They are both head shots.  We only had the regular ultrasounds with Jack, so these seemed pretty shocking to us when we first saw them.

Jack is very excited about being a big brother & really likes the babies at our church.  Most days he wants a brother, and for a while he would tell us he wanted a brother named Lyla.  Two weeks ago he told my friend he wanted a brother named Jesus.  Last week he didn't care about the name, but he definitely wanted a sister.  He's either going to be disappointed with the name or the gender!

We're looking forward to our Christmas baby.

ps- the baby doesn't have a big hole in his/her head as the second picture might lead you to believe. the nurse was quick to assure us of that!

Wow! Those are awesome pictures! I've only ever had a regular ultrasound myself . . . so those pics are really amazing.

Congratulations, and I hope you're feeling well!

Just for John:

Oh my goodness! I can't believe how much he/she looks like her daddy! I can see the glasses and everything!

Here's hoping! : )

I think a baby boy named Lyla sounds great. Indy
