a sneak peek at preciousness to come





Wednesday of last week, I had the opportunity to get a glimpse of my precious little man, Charlie, in a 4D ultrasound.

My heart did flip-flops when I saw my sweet, God given gift on the screen. What a privilege to carry a tiny life inside of me. A living, growing, little person with fingerprints and eyebrows and ten teency toes. A person whom God specifically created for His glory. The responsibility, the weight of it all - It's nothing short of mind-blowing.

Typically, those ultrasounds are done between 28-32 weeks gestation, but a friend of mine from book club knows a girl who was a Sonographer at night for a hospital here in town who offered to scan me for FREE. Since it was her last couple of days on the job, I had to do it a few weeks earlier than is ideal for the pictures, but FREE is always ideal for the budget!

We weren't expecting to get super-great pictures of our little guy since it was so early, but thankfully, we did! The Sonographer said that he was definitely a boy (whew! I've already indulged in a few purchases for him!) and that he was a little more plump than she expected him to be for his gestational period. I have to admit that hearing that he was already chubby-ish made me feel kind of relieved...like I'm doing something right!

Look at the pictures and tell me if you see what I saw: David, David, David.

He has his daddy's mouth and chin, and Avery's sweet little nose. So precious!

Wow..you are so lucky. We=hen we went, he wouldn't turn and we couldn't see anything. We waited until 32 weeks and then she said it was too late to try again. What a blessing you have in little Charlie..
