My precious baby

Little Tommy is so incredibly adorable! He was so comfy in my belly that he slept thru most of the ultrasound. It was such a blessing to get to see him in this type of ultrasound. It's as if you could pick him up and hold him. My sister was awsome enough to get this for us for Christmas (a little early). The above picture is of him sucking his thumb. During the ultrasound, he sucked his thumb, smiled, blinked, squirmed and even snarled at us for moving him around. We were trying to wake him up and get him to move so we could get a full face shot. He didn't cooperate. The picture below is the best we got of his face. We have the entire hour long session on DVD! We were surprised how much he looked like his big brother Andrew. Yes, it was that clear!

The picture above is his little fist against his chin.

The doctor wasn't quick enough with the print button so this is him just after he smiled. His heartbeat was 150 bpm and his estimated weight is 2 lbs 4 oz. I cannot fully describe how amazing and wonderful it was to see him in my belly and with such clarity. I can't wait to meet the little guy!

Superbowl Champs!

The Broomfield Blitz wouldn't allow the Brighton Bulldogs ruin their perfect season. We won 48-0! Not one team has scored a single point against us this season and the superbowl wasn't any different. The Bulldogs came close a few times, which had me at the end of the bleacher. But, the first time they fumbled with only 2 yards to the end zone and we recovered the ball. The second time, with only 3 yards to goal, we intercepted the ball and ran ALL the way down for a touchdown! Every single one of them had a really good game. True to form, Andrew opened up some huge holes for our running back to get through and blocked like the "little" animal that he is. His team has entered the Flatiron Tournament so football isn't over for us quite yet. I hope they do as well in the tournament as they did in their regular season!
