Fatherhood draws closer…

Today Jen and I went to the hospital and had our second round of ultrasounds done. The baby was fairly cooperative at first, and was quite active.

The front view of the face is was kind of freaky because you can see the skeleton so well:

The really weird part was when we saw the spine. You can actually see all the little vertebrae up and down the spine. The good news is everything is on track and looking normal. We have a healthy baby. It was amazing to see the baby squirming around so much. We even had to do some laps around the office because the baby wouldn’t roll over when trying to get the information on the heart rate. I told Jen to hop, skip, and jump, and had to tickle her to get her moving, but the baby still didn’t roll over – so she has to go back for another round.

The funny part was when the baby decided to do some interesting hand gestures. West Side!
