Baby J #5 update (FINALLY some good 3D face pics)

I just wanted to take a deals break and tell you about my baby/pregnancy. I am 30 weeks pregnant as of yesterday (YEAH) so I have about 10 weeks left. As many of you know, my husband is a doctor and in fact a radiologist so occasionally if they are not super busy we can sneak a peek at our baby through ultrasound. It is about the only perk to residency! :)

Anyway-yesterday they had some time to scan my tummy (and they wanted to show a student how to do 3D & 4D Ultrasounds) so went and got some pics of baby boy J. So far his face has been covered in ALL the ultrasounds and so we have not seen it before, but I will tell you, he is a cutie! And boy-he really looks like his siblings!!

The other fun thing is that baby is actually measuring at 32 1/2 weeks instead of 30 weeks and he is already over 4 pounds, so maybe he will come early! :) Fingers crossed! (He is due on his brother, E Dawg's 7th birthday, so It would be nice if he was born early and they did not share a birthday...)

Anyway-here are a few of my favorite pictures of baby J (first is of his feet-he has is big toes crossed, the other 2 are his face!!):

I think he is a cutie! Yes I know I am biased, but oh well...if anyone has unique but not too weird boy names to suggest, I am all ears!!


Possible FREE stuff from Olive Garden on FB!

To celebrate reaching 1,000,000 fans (or "Likers") on Facebook, Olive Garden is giving away 250 prizes a day for 10 days...another long shot, but I do not think this one is a first come first serve. You fill out their form each day and they pick out 250 winners. So, go like them here then fill out the form under the 1,000,000 fans tab each day the promotion runs!!

I super LOVE Olive Garden so I would love to win this, but once again I am not counting on it...please let me know if any of you do win! I would love to hear about your success!!
