Say "Hello" to my Little Friend. . .

Here are our second and third ultrasound pictures. The first just looks like a little Sourpatch Kid, so we probably won't post it. I feel badly that while all of our friends will call their children "Little Bumblebee" and "Cupcake" the best I came up with is "Sourpatch." It's better than my brother's chosen name for me which was "Spit."

So here's like Ella Jane Vancil or Hansel Vancil. The first one is pretty clear. . .

We think the baby looks a lot like The Edge, so that's always a possible name. Just kidding, that's a picture from the U2 concert we went to which was incidentally about 15 weeks ago. Hmmm.

About 12 Weeks
Notice the large nose. I'd love to say that isn't my fault.

About 15 Weeks
On its tummy.
The spine is that bright line on the left with its head resting, uh, someplace on the right. I don't exactly know everything we're looking at here.

It's saying, "I'm almost FOUR months old!" Either that, or it doesn't have thumbs.

OK, just kidding. We are looking at five fingers here.

Here is the profile. It's crazy how quickly it's growing!

So, there you have it. I heard the heartbeat yesterday, so everything seems like it's good! We will try again to figure out what we're having on March 5th so we can officially call "it" Ella Jane or Jerome Jamal:)

Oh, what a cute little bump. Looking very healthy.

O.K. so I'll put my vote in for a Ella Jane. Built in "little momma" for the next one(s) that come along. I've never regretted having a girl first.

Oh, I am laughing and crying. It'd be pretty cool to have a nephew that looks like the Edge...kind-of representative of his start in life. But, seriously, I love this child like my own. It makes me cry and my heart is full. Give Hansel (that is so wrong) a GF corndog from me.

Glad to hear/baby is healthy and seemingly enjoy it's current home :) I think Hansel Vancil has a nice ring to it!
