I thought I’d take a break this week from the external belly shots (which were frankly getting a bit dull) and share some internal ones. Here’s the little boxer in one of the few shots where he/she wasn’t flailing its arms around trying to find its own mouth. Once the vital measurements were all taken and the organs accounted for, the three of us got to watch the show. Baby M’s arms would move around, wave to the camera, and then open its mouth and try to put its thumb (or in one case, its whole fist) into its mouth. Then there was a bit of peek-a-boo going on, which reminded us of watching E during one of her ultrasounds. She was a coy thing, always trying to hide behind her hands. This little one wasn’t really shy, just hungry for some fingers. The baby was declared the cutest baby ever on the way home by E and her dad, and when I stare at the photos on my desk all day long, I’d have to say that I agree.
Snacking on the hand
Thumb sucking, some peek-a-boo, and a little smile
