And the tie breaker goes to...

Our doctor appointment went great today.
I was momentarily nervous when the ultrasound technician pointed to the skin on the baby's neck and said, "This is the baby's neck skin.  This is a marker for Down's Syndrom."
"What??" I thought.
"We like to see a number under 5, and it's well under 5."
Wow, I think she needs to reverse how she tells someone their child doesn't have a strong marker for Down's.  But all is good.  She was very nice, and had fun showing all the body parts to Sophie.

The baby has all it's facial features (although it does look a bit ghoulish in this shot!)

Look at that cute profile!
The baby has all ten toes...
And all ten fingers.
When I called my mom to tell her what we are expecting gender wise, I held the phone out to the girls.

"Tell Grandma what we're having," I encouraged.
In chorus they both yelled, "Cottage cheese and chips!!"

Uhm, not for lunch girls.  :-)


So ten fingers, ten toes, and a little something else too:

A heathly baby boy. How wonderful.
Makes our count 16 boys and 13 girls. Not sure what Breanne is having yet. Can't wait to see you but sorry we won't be there in time to see our new great grandson.
