Popperton

Also known as 'the pops'.

When we first found out I was pregnant, the baby was the size of a poppyseed and so Devin soon began referring to the baby as 'Popperton'. Well today we saw the pops for the first time! As expected, I was definitely ahead of my calendar due date and the baby is measuring at about 13 weeks and 2 days.

Due date: January 13

Current size: peach


I know, I know these ultrasound photos are the worst. I can never figure out why people show these. Let's be honest, this photo is only interesting to the parents and maybe grandparents. But I'm posting it anyways because I'm a little giddy after 'meeting' my baby. What in the world?! This thing already has defined limbs and features. Devin claims he can already see a resemblance to himself (I think he was joking). :)

So there he/she is...meet Popperton. (don't worry, we're not actually naming our baby Popperton)

Doesn't it kinda change everything after getting the ultrasound?!

Aunts think ultrasound pictures are cute too. Can't wait to meet the little Pops!

Oh yes...definite resemblance to Devin. ;)
I like pictures from ultra sounds but...I cried when I heard Noah's heartbeat at the first early apt (and I'm not a super emotional person as a side note). I was so stressed about the whole thing...but when I heard that little swishy sound, it became about another person, not my problems and I was a lot more calm after that. Love that part of kids. It's amazing.

Popperton is cute :)

Emitt was born in January, Otto in June. I'd take January ANY day! For what it's worth :)

Hooray! Pops makes his/her debut on the blog! I am not surprised that you're further along than expected - thanks for posting!

so fun. it's really such a cool time. in later ultrasounds, i really did think there were features that looked familiar. :) but maybe i'm crazy. :)

popperton/pops is a pretty cute nickname. :)

Em... I haven't visited your blog for a while. I love all the new pics, and the window into your life. I love the name "popperton"... reminds me of "poppy" from a favorite book "City of Ember." P.S... I don't regret your recent haircut if that helps!
