a sweet surprise for us...

Today I started the stress tests. I didn;t realize that i would also be getting weekly ultrasounds. YIPPEE! I have been really pondering who Sarah will look like when she is born, like Brinley and Olivia, is she going to have blonde hair, etc. While measuring amniotic fluid and looking at the placenta, the sweet sonographer took some pictures of her face in 4-D. Chubby cheeks, round head, lots of hair...thats the wavy things on her head, and she looks just like Brinley did.
I just about cried when I saw her. It makes things so much more real and she's healthy. They say she is now frank (like Olivia, legs stretched out, feet by her head) breech, but aren't concerned yet, thinking she may flip, we'll see. She is wiggly.

OK, is this crazy, but I think she looks like YOU! We got a 4D ultrasound with our last baby and while it was so fun to see, we definitely couldn't see "ourselves" in him. But I can totally see ARAH in her face! I can see some of your husband, too (forhead, eyebrows, etc) but honest-to-goodness...I think this girl is gonna be as beautiful as her mama!
