Ultrasound 38 weeks 6 days

I got a couple more pictures, but they are really hard to see. They are kind of like those 3D pictures that were popular in the mid-90s...if you stare at the picture for about 20-30 seconds you can start to see a face emerge. Maybe if I feel energetic later I will go upstairs and scan them for you.

Baby Kerbs is doing well! He is floating around in plenty of fluid (the last ultrasound showed that he didn't have much but that was just because the technician didn't look for it). The technician today estimated his weight at 8lbs 1oz which is actually 1oz less than their guess last week. She laughed when she first pulled his picture up with the 3D wand saying that he is "so cute and pudgy". Then she apologized all over herself for calling my baby fat. It didn't offend me, I think chubby babies are cute! I could definitely tell he has round little cheeks.

Come on out little man...we can't wait to meet you!!!

Maybe he's waiting for Saint Patrick's day.(if so will you call him Patrick Kerbs? I am dying to know what his name is going to be in case you can't tell!) My 2 brothers and I where all holiday babies.

Cherie, I'll give you ONE clue on the name. Based on a name he liked a while ago, I think Gabriel will like the name we chose. :)

Kimmy, you might be in luck. Rod has been sending the baby subliminal messages to wait until Friday! Good thing I'm not superstitious because it is Friday the 13th. I was thinking it was also a full moon but I guess tonight is the full moon.

I have been begging Gabriel all day to remind me what his guess was before but he refuses to tell me!

I am joking, I might have a slight idea now since Gabriel kept the names for a week or two before he would change it again so there where not a whole lot of names to chose from. lol

While he was eating lunch today he was staring out the window with a big smile and I asked him what he was thinking about and he said: "When all of the snow melts We can go to Rod and Brookes house and see Brookes Baby" I am not sure if Lenny said that to him or if he came up with it on his own, I wouldn't be surpised if he came up with it though. lol

Cherie, you're thinking too recent. It was a name he liked before Nathan was born. That's probably too good of a hint so email me if you think you got it. :)

Gabriel is too cute. I bet there are lots of things he wants to do when the snow melts! I do hope you guys can come down this summer, though.

Oh my, It looks like I am going to have to do some research! Lucky for me I journaled Nathan's entire pregnancy. Hopefully I wrote it there! But you might have the baby before I find it. lol
