Baby Stow - 26 weeks & 997 grams

After not seeing the doctor for over 6 weeks (a life-time really...) we had our check up yesterday and yay! We got to see our little boy (Levi... Malakai...Tyler... not too sure...) again!
Our doctor just happens to be the coolest guy in our lives at the moment, whipping out a 4D picture in mid-scan... I can't describe the amazement of seeing this flat black-grey picture turn into a multi-dimensional image of our baby's face... especially when I wasn't expecting his 'airplane cockpit' type scanning machine to do that! But I should have known better!! Of course with technology anything is possible these days! Nevertheless... when you are not expecting something, and it just happens... well let's just say it was like hearing angels sing (quite eerie... but most amazing...)!
So! Here is our baby boy... and we are convinced that his chubby cheeks are just like his dad's and his little pug nose is just like his mom's... when, most likely, this is what most babies look like when they're born! But we don't care! We think he is beautiful and those cheeks and that nose must have come from SOMEWHERE!
This little child is so active even the doctor got abit frustrated trying to measure the blood-flow to and from the baby - he wouldn't keep still! Darryl and I pondered what we might be unleashing on the world... But I am sure that as active as this little child is (punching, round-house kicking, comando rolling... all in the confines of my tummy...) he will also be the light of our lives... and he already is!
Hello Baba! We can't wait to meet you!
