Babies!
« on: April 18, 2008, 04:55:31 PM »
Hello all,

I am excited uncle-to-be (for the first time), so I thought I'd start a thread for posting baby pictures.

This is my new niece/nephew (sex undetermined because of position---if it's a boy, his noodle is between his legs!). 2.5 lbs now, 25 weeks in. Good healthy weight!

I'm amazed at how much technology has advanced. My gestation photo is indecipherable!

That looks like expanding foam insulation or a nebula.

Congratulations, from one first-time-uncle-to-be to another!  I just found out two weeks ago about my sister's future child...

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Congratulations, Luberti! I know that it's a custom in the US to say "he/she is BEAUUUUUUUTIFUL!!!" when people look at a newborn baby, regardless of the actual aesthetic impression  :-[ - but is it also a custom to say the same when you look at a picture of a not-yet-born baby?

(Ignore me poking fun, just congrats!)

That is a 4D ultrasound. I haven't had one of those thus far, maybe next time! Come late 2009 I am all for having another munchkin!

Baby has very cute cheeks.

Congrats!  Our daughter's 4D ultrasound looks a little like something from outer space.  But here she is now:

Thanks!  She's 5 months old now.

I was completely amazed at getting a 4-D ultrasound, really.  I had heard they were really expensive and you had to schedule a special appointment for it.  Luckily, that was not the case.  Pretty cool stuff!

Lubeltri, your niece/nephew has the cutest button nose!

15 years ago in Russia I saw my Ekaterina (home name  Katya) first time on ultrasound, she had her palm on the face. It was so dear and touched me so much! This baby has his tiny palm close to his face. It's very darling.
