The much belated sonogram post

First of all, happy belated holidays and happy new years eve!  I hope you all found joy in your personal celebrations and time with friends and family.

Our family celebrations were wonderful!  We spend time with Janet's family Christmas Eve (think steak and crab leg dinner!), stay overnight, and gourge ourselves on mimosas/oj/coffee, stocking gifts, breakfast, gifts, and dinner.  Janet's family is full of rituals that I've truly come to appreciate.  This Christmas I couldn't help but daydream a little bit about what having an ~6 month old baby will be like next year.

Now to the REALLY good stuff:

On 12/22 (12 weeks, 6 days), Janet had a beautiful sonogram/nuchal scan.  Butterbean is looking good in there.  Measurements were on track (12.4 weeks), heartbeat was good (162 bpm) and mother was gauged healthy!

Peek-chures (for those on facebook, sorry for the spam)

Is there really anything as cool as being able to see a baby nose?

I have recently found your blog and always love to find another blogger that is not doing the gestating portion of babymaking.
Beautiful scan!
