New Pictures of Gizmo!

April 9, 2008

We were blessed with a lengthy and positive ultrasound yesterday afternoon, and we wanted to share all of Gizmo’s new head shots!

First, you have to remember our last picture of the baby. This was Giz at about 11 weeks (January 28). 

 Gizmo’s head is on the right side… and makes up about 1/3 of the baby’s entire body!

 

Here is Gizmo at 20-21 weeks:

 

 In this picture, Gizmo is looking up. You can see the curve of the forehead, the little bump of the nose and the line of the lips. Too cute!

 

Gizmo is looking at us in this picture. The two black areas are the baby\'s eyes.

 Gizmo is looking right at us! The two black areas in the middle of the head are Giz’s eyes. Hi Baby!

 

 We got to see 3D images of Gizmo, too. Here you can see Gizmo’s beautiful eyes, nose, lips, and chin along with a  hand up against the other eye. Perhaps Gizmo is showing off his or her big guns.  

 

It looks like Gizmo is thinking about all those tough math problems Dad’s been talking into Mom’s belly. 1+1=2. 2+2=4. 4+4=8. (This goes on into the thousands.) What a face!

 

Our ultrasound tech, Susan, went through a huge checklist during the session. She checked for the baby’s heartrate, the blood pressure in the umbilical cord, the heart chambers, the spine, the size of the head, the legs, feet, and stomach. We found out that Gizmo probably weighs about 12 oz. now, which sounds about right since that is how much weight I’ve gained. (wink!) Can you believe how much the baby has grown in just nine weeks?!

 

Yesterday was an amazing time to just sit and spy on our baby. Dr. Syal called us afterwards and shared that she agreed with Susan — everything looks great! We have an appoitnment with Dr. Syal on Friday next week, and then we’ll go back in May for another ultrasound and doctor’s visit. Since Gizmo was face down during the photo shoot, Susan needs to see us again to check on the arteries into the heart, which she couldn’t see yesterday due to Gizmo’s position. 

 

Enjoy!!

    Grampa Rick looks at pictures, draws in deep breath, holds it a second and tearfully says, “write that I think Gizmo is BEAUTIFUL. What a BEAUTIFUL baby!”

    sniff

    Truly I am speechless….truly.

    My chest aches, my eyes are teary and my nose in burning.

    WHAT a miracle!

    God is so good!

    “Let me ‘hole’ da baby mama. Just fer a little bit!,” rings in my mind as a three-year-old Amanda Rose or three-year-old Grace each asked of me when I was pregnant.

    Gizmo IS BEAUTIFUL, as Grampa Rick so heartfully said.

    Now, I want to “hole da baby” too. Just fer a little bit!

    Now, it is your time to reply as I used to, “The baby is not done cookin’ yet.”

    Grandma Mommo says there is nothing as precious as the sight of this new little creation. God is good. I love the cute little nose. :>) I’m sure I can say for all the family that we are praying every day for this new little one and for his/her mommy and daddy. We just can’t wait to love-up this little one.

    By the way, I had meant to respond to the “guessing the date” blog – I’m hoping for 8/20 as I think it would be so special for Amanda, GG, and baby to share the “20s” date. :>) Of course, my second choice would be the 24th – to share my “24” date. :>)

    Love you all!

    Hi Mike!!

    Ginnie, thanks for your due date comment. I have really loved everyone’s perspectives on the dates. You’re such a good keeper of history — you should definitely write it all down for the rest of us to remember!
