On Monday, we had our 4D ultrasound for Ford. We intended to bring both boys along, but in typical child fashion, Brody threw up that morning, so he was out of the running. Instead, Trevor and Knox picked me up from work and we headed to the appointment. We’ve done a 4D for each of the boys, but this was the first one Trevor actually attended. He was so funny about not wanting to see what the kids looked like before they were born, he refused to come for Knox and Brody’s ultrasounds, so I ended up bring our moms, instead.
This time, I really wanted Knox and Brody to come, and for whatever reason, Trevor relented and decided to accompany us. Poor Knox has such doctor anxiety after his MUSC blood draw experience a few months back, and his little bottom lip started quivering when we pulled up to the office. We tried so hard to explain to him that this was Mommy’s appointment and not his, but he wasn’t feeling it. He kept asking to go home and “go Knox’s house!” Finally, I told him we were there to see a baby movie, and that appeased him a bit. He was still very wary until we got into the ultrasound room and he actually saw what was going on.
Ford cooperated beautifully, and we got a full 30 minutes of his sweet little face (even though he didn’t stop moving the entire time… I’m beginning to think this isn’t going to be the calm child I was envisioning). Here he is:
I KNOW. I’m obsessed with him, already, you guys. He definitely has Trevor’s mouth, as do both Knox and Brody, so that was really cool to see. I think from these, he looks more like Knox than Brody, but we’ll just have to wait and see. And because I love comparison pictures, here are all three boys’ 4D images side-by-side (the cheeks on Brody, my word):
