We had our big ultrasound yesterday. The day was long and frustrating (it’s a long story), but the ultrasound at the end was totally worth it.ย The tech did all the measurements first and as fast as he could so that I could get up and pee (I had to drink 32oz of water and hold it for an hour before). It was so cool to feel the baby kicking and squirming while he did the measurements. The techs aren’t really allowed to say anything, but we assume that everything is okay with the baby because he didn’t bring the radiologist or a doctor in right away to speak with us. So, in a couple of days I should hear from the doctor saying everything looks good.

After I got up to pee, he turned the screen so that I could see it too. And then he just took his time, let us watch the baby move, and got some pictures for us. We watched the baby move its hands in front of its face. It waved at us, and gave us a thumbs up. It sucked its thumb and then stuck its tongue out at us. It was so sweet because that was the first time the tech actually held still long enough that we could see the baby moving. We could see the little tiny heart beating away, and baby had its legs folded up so its feet were right by its face, and its legs were crossed at the knees. It was so sweet ๐Ÿ™‚ It measured perfectly for my due date, so they’ll keep it on December 7th.

This is the baby’s hand up in front of its face. You can see the fingers up on the left, and it goes down to the right almost to the elbow.

Both hands this time again fingers on the left, elbows on the right.

A picture of the foot. Toes are angled down to the left.

This is the face. It looks a little skeletal. You can see the eyes on the left, then the nose, and kind of the chin, the big white blob in the middle is the baby’s belly.

You want to know what it is? So do we! Baby had its legs crossed the whole time! The tech said sometimes you can still kind of guess what the baby is. But, this one is a perfect 50/50 still, so I guess we’ll wait and be surprised in December ๐Ÿ™‚

Big news in the Sanchez house! July 24, 2008

I was starting to wonder what the average age is for kids to start losing teeth. I thought that I had remembered losing my first tooth right before first grade started. My cousin’s little boy who is about a year older than Ryan has lost a few, so last Saturday night, I asked them when he had started to lose his teeth. They said it had been pretty recent, so I thought it might be awhile before Ryan got a loose tooth. While we were talking about it with them Ryan pointed to one of her bottom teeth and said, I think this tooth will be loose first. I asked her if it was loose, she said no, I figured it was just one of those kid things, and that she had just randomly picked a tooth.

Last night while we were all sitting around the dinner table, the subject of teeth came up again. And, again, Ryan pointed to the same tooth, and said, I thinkย  this tooth will be loose first. So, Rob asked if he could feel it and see if it was loose. He stuck his finger in her mouth, and not only is the tooth loose, she’s got two adult teeth coming right underneath the two front teeth. By the time she loses these two teeth, there won’t even look like there’s a space there. I can’t believe my baby is old enough to be losing teeth! I’ll probably cry when the first one comes out.

She’s informed us that she’d like the tooth fairy to bring prizes not money. Did anyone get prizes from the tooth fairy? I’d like to know what kind of things we can be expecting her to bring ๐Ÿ˜‰


A moment in the life of Kaylynn.

Yesterday after Kaylynn had her shower, Rob was combing out her hair for me. He had gotten to a part that seemed to have a lot of knots, and Kaylynn looked at me with a frown and said “I have rectangles.”
