It's a.....

Healthy baby! :)

We had our 20 week ultrasound on Friday. Jason, Paige and I were all able to "meet" the baby together. It was just as fascinating as when we saw Paige for the first time 2 1/2 years ago. Everything looks good and healthy.

Paige did a great job. She loved to see the new baby on the TV. By the end of the ultrasound she was able to pick out some body parts, name them, and show us what the baby was doing. She was showing us that the baby had his/her arms above the head and was moving them around. As she was doing this she was saying, "Arms, arms." It was pretty cool to see her understand a little more. She also seems to get what we mean when we say that the new baby is in Mommy's belly now. Before she really didn't understand. Now it seems to click a little better. I'm really glad we took her with us!

Here are a few snapshots we were able to get (click to enlarge):

Baby's face (dark spot is forehead, center circles are eyes...)

Count the toes! They are all there.

I really liked this shot of the leg! It's neat to see the bones and structure all there. It's so amazing to me that my body is working and essentially creating a human being. God is wonderful!
