Big Kid


What a difference four weeks can make. At the beginning of the month our little guy was on the small side… 14 ounces. This morning he weighed one pound and 14 ounces.

Strangely, now he’s almost a little big for his age. He must get that from his dad.

Other things he gets from his dad… feet the size of scuba flippers, an adorable button nose, bulging biceps and rugged good looks.

Things he hopefully gets from his mom… two earlobes and the ability to focus on one thing for more than three seconds.

His heart was beating strong and everything looked good. His heartrate was 146 bpm…

BABY BELLYMallory is doing great too… all of her measurements are right on track. Her vitals are all looking good, so it’s smooth sailing right now.

Her belly really started to look pregnant a couple weeks ago after baby’s big growth spurt. It really seems like it all kind of happened overnight.

The whole thing started to feel real when we saw him for the first time a couple months ago… felt better hearing his heartbeat… even better seeing him the second and third time. I think the best part is being able to feel him kick. I love it. I’m sure Mal is starting to get tired of it, especially since he seems to be most active right when she’s going to bed.

I’m sure there are more things to talk about, but my mind is starting to wander. Hopefully sometime this week I’ll get time to tell you about the name I’ve picked out…

Keep reading for more photos from the ultrasound –

Flexing his massive arm muscles…


Showing off his feet, which are already about the same size as his mommy’s…



Here’s a tighter shot of his nose and mouth… looking straight at him here.


Here’s a view looking straight down at his head… we could actually see his eyeball moving around during the ultrasound. Weird.


Another profile shot…


And the last one is more proof of his manhood…
