TODAY'S the day we go to check out our little bambino! First Mass to pray for our family and thank God for our blessings, then naps for the little ones (and maybe Mommy) then off to see the baby! Yay! So excited!
(This is NOT our baby, but IS another one at 18 weeks!)
Well... looks like this Fullen baby is going to be exactly like it's mother... How so? In it's pure stubbornness. After much work, the ultrasound tech was unable to get all of the measurements she needed and this baby simply would NOT uncross its legs. SO... no idea what we're having. Any guesses?????????
Ava had fun, though. She's getting mighty comfortable at our midwife's. She always runs up to Louise with a big hug and says "Auntie Louise!!!" Now, Shaun HAS an Auntie Louise, so that's probably where that comes from, but our midwife sure does feel like part of our family and we absolutely LOVE her.
She (Ava) loved seeing the baby moving around in there on the screen and when she was in the waiting room she played little miss social butterfly with the other kids, but mostly the "BIG" sister to Clara. She pulled a wooden chair right across the room to Clara and gathered an armful of books exclaiming "I read to my baby. Sit down Clara!" Clara was content to stand and walk around her big sister, but as she adores Ava, she hung out close by her.
Bambino #3 slept through the entire session (JUST like Ava used to!) no matter how much poking, prodding, turning or whatever we tried. Ava was the exact same way. I said, "If this baby's a sleeper like Ava, boy am I ready for another one of those because Miss Clara is definitely NOT!" New baby also kept its legs firmly crossed the entire time (Just like Ava used to). Ava was always JUST as uncooperative in her ultrasounds as she is now in regular photographs (thus the header pic), so at least she's consistent and if I get another baby who's laid back and sleeps a lot... that's an easy toss up for some tough ultrasound sessions. One can hope right?
So, till next week. We try again next Wednesday!
