I am introducing you to...

...little Timothy Rex!




Sorry for the terrible and awkwardly formatted pictures, but who can really see much other than blurry grey blobs in ultrasound pictures anyway?

But yes! You can perhaps see in the fourth picture down, which is him sitting cross-legged, why the doctor thinks he's a boy. (Do you think it will scar the children being born in the Internet age that pictures of their genitals were posted on the intarwebz for strangers to ogle?)

We have another ultrasound a week from tomorrow on the big machine at the hospital and maybe will be able to see more, but in the meantime, here he is.

Wiggling around, looking nice and normal, heartbeat 147, I think he said--normal, anyway. Healthy.

It's hard to see in the scanned image, but in the second picture, do you see that circle where an eye would be? Apparently that's the lens of his eye. The ultrasound whatever-it-is (soundwaves, I guess?) reflected perfectly off the actual lens inside his eye. Isn't that cool?

Also it makes him look like the Terminator.

Yay. ^_^

    1. Thanks, Anne! That's good to know, ha--I can't really tell anything from these things.

      Timothy for the DDH and Rex for the DDH's grandpa. We like it. ^_^
