Meet Alex

Here are the ultrasounds from our baby boy, Alexander [Alex for short- still working on a middle name.] Below each picture I've tried to give pointers so you can understand what's really in the picture.

Alex was not shy- anyone familiar with how to look at an ultrasound can see he's "pointing" to the top left.

Took me forever to see this one, but I finally did just today! His face is on it's side with his chin pointing right. If you look closely, you'll see a skeletal-looking face with black eye sockets, a tiny nose and frown [his two hands are right up to his face too, which makes it difficult to decipher.]

His shoulder is in the middle near the bottom with his upper arm pointing to the top left, elbow bent and lower arm pointing back down to the middle- his hand is nearly touching his shoulder.

His feet are on the far left with his leg extending all the way across the screen to the right.

His feet are on the far right side [this one is a little harder to see, too].

His profile is the easiest to see, but it was blurred a bit by movement- you can see the shape of his head and he's facing upwards [chin is on the left].

Hooray! Alexander is a good name! Good luck with the middle name. We need to get together again sometime. (just putting in a plug)

Can't wait to meet this cute little guy!

Maybe his middle name could be your dad's name?

Thanks! Amy, Ian and I don't want to use names that are already repeated in the family- my father's name is the name of one of my nephews and his middle name is one of Ian's uncles. Thanks for the tip though!

Congratulations! I'm so excited!!

I love the name Alexander. Thomas would make a great middle name...I'm just saying this first because I'm sure the next time Tom sees you he will put in a plug for Thomas. :)
