It's a . . . .

GIRL!!!



We had our targeted ultrasound yesterday morning. The baby's organs, heart, brain, etc. all looked good. She weighs in at about 9 ounces, which is how much Piper weighed at this gestation (Rosemary weighed 8 ounces, and Henry 11 ounces). She also posed a little bit for us. . . .




When we had our targeted ultrasound with the babies, we got a good shot of Henry's feet. Gary immediately exclaimed that he had my "freaky long toes" -- and sure enough, to this day, Henry still has my toes. Gary didn't think that this baby has my "freaky long toes" but then I'm not sure. They sure don't look that short to me, but then Gary doesn't think I truly comprehend the freaky longness of my own toes:



We even got a 3D shot of the baby, but she wasn't very cooperative. . . .



For some reason, this baby's movements reminded me a bit of Rosemary, though she certainly was more cooperative than Rosemary ever was. Piper was always a great poser, but Rosemary was pretty difficult. It took a few weeks to find out Rosemary's gender because she kept trying to hide the goods. I think we ended up with a grand total of ONE profile ultrasound picture of Rosemary because she just wanted to save the surprise for later (which is no small feat considering I had WEEKLY ultrasounds for the entire pregnancy). This baby was not that difficult, but something about her just reminds me of Rosemary.

We think that we have this baby's name picked out, but we're going to ponder it for a little while longer just to be sure. . . .
