My! What a Pretty Face You Have!

Dear Pickles,

On Wednesday, mommy had to go to the doctor to complete a glucola test.  This is a test where the doctor gives mommy a yummy, sweet orange drink to drink (within 5 minutes), and then, exactly an hour later, a nurse takes a sample of my blood to see if mommy has gestational diabetes.  The test takes about two hours to complete.  Daddy was a good sport and kept mommy company while she had to complete the test.  While we were there, we also had our regular check-up.  I told daddy about how feisty you were the last time you had your heart beat checked.  You didn't fail to deliver that same attitude this time around either.  This time, as the nurse tried to locate your heart beat with the heart monitor, you kept slowly inching away from her.  Once she got you into a corner, you kicked the nurse's monitor away from you.  This made mommy and daddy giggle, although, perhaps, we should not be encouraging that feisty behavior... but you're just so darn adorable.

After the check-up, we had a "fun ultrasound" scheduled with the sonographer.  For a fee, we got 57 3D pictures of you.  It was so cool!  Daddy was nervous to see you, but I couldn't wait.  Whose nose would you have?  Whose lips would you have?  Once we saw you in 3D, we were amazed... You were beautiful.

By the time we started the ultrasound, you must have been tired and going through a sugar crash from the glucola test.  You were very sleepy and just wanted to keep your hands by your sweet little face.  The sonographer shook and tapped mommy's belly to get you to move, but you just furrowed your brow and hid.  Nevertheless, mommy and daddy were entertained.  Here are some of the best shots we got to see of you that day:

I think you look like Daddy... and I wouldn't have it any other way.  I love you.
