Ultrasound...

We had the BIG ultrasound yesterday. The one where we find out whether I'm cooking a boy or a girl. And as it turns out, there was no real conclusion made. The baby was too squirmy for them to catch any pictures. In fact I have to go back next week for a follow up to get the rest of the pictures.

It's definitely had me thinking...Hailey is a busy kid - a VERY busy kid. Busy to the point that strangers sort of shake their heads and laugh in pity when they see me chasing her everywhere. She's a kid who doesn't know how to just walk - she has to ALWAYS run. Now, I remember her very clearly when she was just a tummy baby. She was definitely a mover and a shaker. She kicked ALL the time, and rolled and flipped and jumped around in there constantly. But when it came to the BIG ultrasound, she cooperated quite nicely. She moved just enough that they were able to get all the measurements in without a problem...but stayed still at all the right times (i.e. when we wanted to see whether she was going to be a She or a He.)
So I'm wondering, if that's what a busy baby was like...what is the current tummy baby going to be like? Am I really in store for a child more wild then my Hailey?? I'm really terrified!
All I know is that when I go in for the next ultrasound I'm going to forgo the 'something sweet' they recommended I eat before hand - because as it turns out, my children do not need anything to get them moving. They are busy all by themselves.

Speaking of wild, I just got the CD of the pictures Ben's sister took of Hailey for her one year photo shoot (well more like 15 month shoot). Doesn't that look like that face of someone who's just waiting to go and terrorize the world??
There were some really cute pictures from the session...but I just had to share this one right now. It so perfectly captures the child I'm trying to describe.

Oh and here's one of the family - I may be biased...but I think we all look pretty good!

That is a really nice family photo! And no I don't think a child can get any more wild than Hailey, so don't worry!

I love your family photo!!!!!!! Ella is a runner & a wild child too!!!!! I can totally relate to you, we should have a play date so we can compare wild girls. I'm hoping this baby boy isnt going to be like her, but I hear boys are worse.
