Eyes and Ears and Mouth and Nose

Well, no ears in this picture, but we've got eyes, mouth, and nose covered!  Today we had our fourth (and maybe last) ultrasound and everything with T-Pup looks just about perfect.  Our little guy weighs 1 lb, 10 ounces - in the 47th percentile, which is great.  He's actually measuring a few days ahead of schedule, so Jeff might wind up with his April Fools baby after all!  Stomach, amniotic fluid, kidneys, heart - everything checked out just fine.  My cervix was long and there were no signs of any problems whatsoever, which was a huge relief to Jeff and me. 

Our technician was AWESOME and got this great, 4-D image of T-Pup's face.  He's positioned face up against the placenta, so we think his nose is a little smushed, but it looks like he might have Jeff's mouth!

Babies, Friends, and Kitty

We've been busy since our last post!  Between a weeklong Thanksgiving trip to California, two huge work events for Tara,  a work conference for Jeff, the breakdown of Jeff's car, Jeff's dad's surgery, T-Pup's continued growth, and the birth of three sweet baby boys to good friends, we're just now starting to catch our breath. We're still not quite in the habit of carrying the camera everywhere we go (we'll get better, I promise!), so we don't have pictures of everything, but here are few snapshots of some fun moments in the last few weeks - including one of my growing bump, just for the grandmas.

Eli Jonathan Steiner is just four days old!  He already loves Uncle Jeff.
Jeff was a natural holding him!

Sweet kitty Ari P.  Sometimes she's camera-shy . . .
Adorable Josie Rafferty, the 3-month-old daughter of my awesome coworker, Lori.

We're not sure how Ari cuddled up underneath the pillow and blanket, but she looked precious.

Baby Eli liked the wine!

Glowing Mama Beth amd Eli post-bris - they were both champs!
