Baby Tomato (with pictures)

Baby Julianna waving hi to the world:

Shy baby Julianna -- she has her hands up and her face is in profile between her arms:
Legs crossed:
Baby Tomato per this week's email:

Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces, and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato. The hair on her scalp is sprouting. This is a crucial time for sensory development: Your baby's brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. Some research suggests that she may be able to hear your voice now, so don't be shy about reading aloud, talking to her, or singing a happy tune if the mood strikes you.
Pictures are from the ultrasound that told us Baby Tomato is a Julianna and not a Nathan.

    Julianna's hand is clear, but the other two pics are mysteries!

  6. shy baby is a close up of her arms and face -- she has her arms crossed above her head and her face is turning away as if she doesn't want her picture taken. the blob on the left is her chest.

    crossed legs is a zoomed out looking down at her photo with her head to the left and her legs to the right. her legs are crossed (right over left) and the blob to the left is the top of her head and lower belly (i think that's what that blob is).

    if ya click on the pictures, they biggify

  7. I bet she'll be in better focus in a few months. Congratulations!

  8. hey cujo -- turkey day she will be exactly halfway done and she'll start to have a lot less room.
