family resemblance?

In addition to the March for Babies this weekend (see post below), Kevin and I also had some bonding time with Mocha.

If you are a long time blog reader you already know that I had several 3D/4D ultrasound done with Timothy. If you would like to see those cool pictures you can click here or here or here or here.

Shortly after I announced on blogger that I was expecting again I received an email from one of the sonographers that allowed us to spent so much time with our son. She explained that she has opened a brand new location and would love to give us the gift of a 3D/4D ultrasound with Mocha! I was blown away by her generosity. Of course I quickly agreed and made the appointment.

Kyle is truly amazing. Her new office is in Issaquah, Washington and I would HIGHLY recommend having one of these scans done. She would love to take a peek at your baby with you! Check out her web site at

She spent an hour with us and we had a great time. It was awesome to see this new little life spring forth with personality.

Most of you already know this but I have been struggling a little with bonding with this pregnancy and baby. I am not sure why but I assume that it has a lot to do with fear and grief. Over the last few weeks these feeling have started to melt away. I find myself falling in love with Mocha.

After this ultrasound I can most defiantly say that Mocha has stolen my heart. It was amazing.

I loved seeing chubby cheeks and long straight fingers (which is a HUGE deal after having a T18 baby). Mocha spent some time sleeping then woke up and made cute and funny faces at us.

When we had our original ultrasound we asked our sonogragher to put the gender in an envelope for us. Since I didn't see the gender on the screen it was hard to trust that it was correct. But I was thrilled because it turns out that we don't have a shy baby. I now know first hand that the gender is real. We saw it over and over again! In fact... I am thinking that I might be willing to spill the beans soon. So stay tuned...

Just look at these pictures! I can already see a little Currey in the making. Mocha is only 26 weeks right now but already looks like our other children.

Check out that smile!

I love those long fingers

Can you believe that mouth? I told you this kid could yawn!

I see a tired baby!

Look closely...there is a tongue in that mouth!

Spill! Spill! Spill!!! I LOVE beans :)

I also love these pictures. There is no question she is a Currey. He looks so much like your others already! I'm falling in love with Mocha too and can't wait to meet him, although I'm happy she didn't decide to come during the March for Babies walk.

Such personality and so precious! I can't wait to "meet" little Mocha.

I've never been one for keeping secrets. But, I totally think you should keep it to yourselves. Either way, I'll be totally excited to hear and meet Mocha when she, or he, makes his, or her, greatly anticipated appearance. I loved the pictures! God is working wonders in you and I'm so happy to hear how you are feeling.

The pictures are fantastic. Don't give it away. Unless you really want to. Your baby is beautiful, of course I am probably a little bias. Love ya. Mom
