Our Beautiful Baby Girl's 3D/4D

Caught with her hand to her mouth--so cute!
Kara's foot pressing against Mommy.
Her hands are so perfect!

Here is Kara's face. No cleft lip! Fingers curled around her cord.

She looks concerned here. She likes to keep her hands over her face.

We were so excited to get a 3D/4D ultrasound of Kara Faith on Monday! She looked so beautiful! We were all surprised at how wonderful all of her features appear. The doctors kept saying her eyes were small, but on ultrasound they look proportionate even though she kept them closed (which is normal). Kara has no cleft lip and a cute little chin! We did confirm that she has one nostril--I'm just happy for that! The opening appears to be large enough for an airway, but we won't know until she is born. She is doing a great job of "practice breathing" which we saw on this ultrasound, too! Pray for no airway difficulties at the time of her birth. We are so very thankful to God that Kara looks so good! (I am thinking she looks like her big brother, Dan, but we'll see in January!)

The tech was a little nervous because we brought Celeste, Dan, & Max with us to the appointment. She asked if they were prepared. She had only seen pictures in journals of HPE babies. You could tell she was quite surprised and happy to see Kara looking so wonderful!

"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them." Psalm 139:13-16

I just found your blog through Jan's (Megan, Kara, Amanda). Our homeschooling family will be praying for you and your family, especially for Kara Faith.
Her pictures are beautiful. She IS wonderfully made.

Ms Nancy I cried when I saw, and read what you wrote. She is so beautiful, and special. I am praying for a working airway, and all her practice breathing will pay off.

What a beautiful and wonderfully made daughter you have! We will lift your whole family up in prayer. My heart goes out to you. I wish I could hug you tight! Thank you for sharing her with us.
