Coombs Baby

Friday, May 13, 2011
I love it when Sheena has an ultrasound appointment.

I know they're controversial. I know some people have strong feelings about ultrasounds. I know some people never get them.

They are missing out.

They're so much fun.

I love seeing the images, but they're more than images. They're tiny clues into the personality that is already forming. The kid is playing around in there, and as a dad you are privy to such a tiny amount of what the mom is aware of.

My understanding is that Sheena feels movement almost constantly. While I probably play patty cake with the kid maybe ten minutes a week.

But when it comes ultrasound day I get to see what is going on in there. And it is awesome.

Kinda weird, because the kid looks more like an alien than his father at this point. But it's still amazing.

Here's a bit of what we saw on the last appointment.

So apparently, our kid is going to be a hippie.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
