Ultrasound Photos

We had an ultrasound done on 3/24.  Here are some snips of pictures.  We are thankful that everything appears healthy.

The nose and lips are above the label -- do you see?  We didn't get any better look at the face than that.  I like that one, though -- so cute, and amazingly developed already (we're about 1/2 through the pregnancy).
This one is kind of funky, but do you see the little foot a little off-center?  You can see the feet are crossed.  If you're better at interpreting these things than I am you might even be able to tell other things from this one...
Ear in the center -- back of head a bit.


Another profile, wider view showing most of the body.

Such amazing technology that allows us to peek at the development of this little one.  We are so blessed!

I have another pic I could show, but I hesitate to show it here.  As we've done for our recent pregnancies, we found out the gender.  Before, we've always kept the gender a secret until the baby was born.  This time, we've decided to try something different and tell it ahead.  We wanted to let the little ones in on the news, and that way we don't have to be concerned about them keeping it secret.  We won't reveal the name until later, though, even if we decide what it is before the birth.

However, I still feel kind of funny stating the baby's gender before it's born... just habit, I guess.  Here goes...



BOY! :)

I think I won't post the picture that proves this clearly (he wasn't shy at all about that)... maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but in case he'd find it really embarrassing in several years, I'll refrain.  Anyway, while we didn't get to see much of his face, there wasn't any doubt about his gender.

We're excited.  This will be a new experience for us, since we've never had two boys in a row.   It also gives our family a little more balance in the male-female ratio.  And I think Abraham will enjoy having another boy close to him.  :)

"For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well."   Psalm 139:13-14


  1. congratulations! We are so excited for another beautiful Morris baby :) -Alex and Ryane

    1. Thanks! :) Your darling is adorable, and I'm enjoying seeing the photos you post.

  2. Praising the Lord for another little "man, man". Yes that will be fun for Abraham to have a brother close in age.

    And I hear you about the kids not keeping secrets. We made the mistake of telling our kiddos the name we have chosen for Baby Girl. I really didn't want anyone to know until she's born, but if you want to know , ask Kiana or Tyrell-they will absolutely tell you ! Eye roll and rueful grin

    1. Yes. You should hear Abraham say "young man" now (which he says while pointing to himself). "Yo may" -- soo cute!

      Uh, oh -- and lol at once. I'll have to try to refrain from asking them if I get to see you all before yours arrives... You don't have much longer to wait! How exciting! :)
