Our lil baby

I just need to post quickly...I saw our baby. It is so cute. Seriously, it looked so chubby and adorable and looked like it could be in my arms right now. I cried when I saw his/her face. It looked like a girl face (as if you can tell!) but she said something like `Oh, you have another boy at home too?' or something like that. The ultrasound technician was soooo nice (Katie, I must've got the good one!) and she let me see the screen almost the entire time. She chatted with me throughout and laughed when the baby kept kicking her the entire time. Big, big kicks. The ultrasound weight/size can be way off and the estimated size was 6lbs 2oz +/- 15oz. So, it looks like the baby should be somewhere between 8-9lbs when born. I'm still going with 8lbs 12oz for a girl and 9lbs 2oz for a boy:) I'm measuring 1.5 weeks ahead of where I am according to the ultrasound. I may scan and post the pictures I have. I got to see up the nostrils (never seen that before!) and when we went to see the face again at the end, the baby had turned away which was too bad. I also saw the kidneys, stomach, heart, feet, legs, arms...everything! It was great. The baby has big toes. So cute. I can't believe there's a lil Chapman in there! We're going to have a new baby soon...I can't wait!
