I think it’s the bright thing right in the middle of this ultrasound image. Because, of course, in the Future we’ll all have personal jet packs, even the babies…

A somewhat more recognizable picture:


That’s a profile shot of FutureBaby’s head. The other is a wider shot, showing some of the body. These are even less baby-like than the last set, because FutureBaby is now large enough to extend past the field of view of the ultrasound gizmo.

Estimated weight at the moment is 4lbs, which is a little big for 30 weeks. It’s a little scary to think that FutureBaby will almost double in mass between now and the delivery date…

    I have to admit the favorite ultrasound of my child was one of the early ones where my daughter was looking directly at the receiver. Her nickname, at least between the wife and I, was skull baby. Once her pictures stopped looking like Skeletor that is.

    I like that you used the word ‘gizmo’.

    4lbs, which is a little big for 30 weeks

    For values of “a little” equal to about 25% over the average . . .

    Also, three different people have looked at the second picture by itself and thought the nose was actually a foot, after being told it was a head shot. Here I thought it was the *most* recognizable of the pictures . . .

    The Book of Mormon (C)19663, David O McKay, illustrated

    Color plate facing page 397. Jet pack! How many daughters-in-law do you consider to be the optimal allocation?

    The first one looks like a goat and a sheep. Is this “Mary had a little lamb?” The second one looks like a baby’s head.

    A little large, huh? How’s mom’s sugar metabolism? (I do remember feeling something like a time bomb…)

    Kate’s glucose tolerance test was normal.

    (While Kate does not normally speak of herself in the third person, she likes to emphasize that she does still have an actual name.)
