Baby K update!

Mommy and Daddy had an appointment with the perinatalogist (high-risk pregnancy doctor) on July 13 to see my little bro! He is looking great! The doctor got a really good look at his heart and it appears to be strong and have no anomalies. WOO HOO!!! All of his long bones (femur/tibia) are measuring right on target, as is his skull. His spine appears to have no curvatures, however it's extremely hard to see in utero. There are still TWO kidneys and they are pretty sure two eyes. We are thinking positive and just know that he is going to be a healthy baby. We are so excited to get to see the little guy every few weeks. In this ultrasound photo he is practicing his breathing, as you can see his mouth is open! They estimate that he weighs about 2 1/2 lbs. Grow baby grow! Mommy and daddy will go back on August 11 to see him again.

Psalm 33:21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.

Oh and we think we've decided on his first name. What do you guys think of Kylar? We all love it and are pretty sure that is the moniker he will have!

I'm so happy to get to see him again, too. He looks so sweet, which I'm sure he is. Kylar is gorgeous and I can't wait to meet this little HEALTHY bundle of joy.

By the way, thank you SO much for the card. You are amazing.
