I Have a Hairy Alien in My Belly

I am not going to lie. These ultrasound pictures sort of freaked me out. Partly because...like...wait...there is really something that big inside of me right now? GET IT OUT!! And partly because some of the pictures make her look like she has big black holes where eyeballs should be...and no one wants that. If you think hard enough about it, you could have a serious freak out over having an alien in your stomach. I am not thinking about it.

Evie is in the 50th percentile for her weight...right now she is about 5 pounds and 14 ounces, so if she arrives on time they are guessing that she will be between 7 and 7 1/2 pounds. I am telling you...and I may be biased...but this child is perfect in every way. I was a little relieved that there is no chance of us having a 9 pound baby (not that it would have been likely in the Munchkin Land that is our gene pool...but still).

Here is profile picture number one...and here you (and by "you" I mean the Ultrasound Tech...because I sure can't) can tell that she is going to have a full head of hair. Shocker! Both her dad and I had lots of black hair, so we figured that she might.

The little monkey kept sucking on her hand during the ultrasound. It was super cute...she also wowed us with some practice breathing. What a little prodigy!

And here is the alien face!! It is so weird how detailed it is compared to our 21 week ultrasound. Seriously...and you are not going to hurt my feelings...this picture is a little creepy, yes?

I love her so much already...creepy eye sockets or not.
