And so life begins...

WOW! And I thought the Colorado Mountains were amazing... We thought we'd share the pictures with you from our first ultrasounds of Baby Camping. Long story short, we were required to have more ultrasounds done in the first 12 weeks of Heather's pregnancy than most. But, we didn't complain. What an opportunity to see the amazing growth occuring overnight. Everything is proceeding very well and things look great according to the Doc!

The first picture below is at Week 6:

Not a whole lot to see other than the first stages of a HUMAN! That little dot in the middle of the "dark triangle" is the developing fetus (the same size as a sesame seed).













Week 8:













Week 10:













Week 13: We are amazed how fast growth and development is occuring. Let the pictures speak! The next 3 pics are only 3 weeks later...













Looks like he/she may be throwing a punch













I'm afraid getting the head out won't be the problem...
Can we say LARGE feet!
