Gather ’round, and let’s sing a song about babies before we drift off to sleep, friends.

Rockabye baby in your mom’s ute

When you come out, we know you’ll be cute

But when you’re in there, and still quite small

You look like an alien and creep out us all

Awww, that’s my baby, in all it’s 13 week old fetus glory. I laughed so hard at this image that I could barely keep still long enough to take a pic of it with my phone. Don’t get me wrong, it’s super adorable from all other angles.

Actually, I’d argue it’s adorable from this one, too. I mean, it’s totally fist-bumping, right? So cute.

But it’s really probably only adorable to me. To the rest of you? TERRIFYING.

Sweet dreams!

  1. Ok…. I laughed really hard at this while I was scrolling down and first saw the picture. (before I read that you had laughed really hard too) It is the most awesome 13 week photo. Good pic snapping to your nurse or whoever got that shot!

  2. Love it. I have to admit I felt a bit guilty that my first picture of my baby looked more like an alien than a human and kind of freaked me out. Glad I’m not alone in that.

  3. I have a similar picture of my baby and actually posted it on FB saying proof that he was the devil.. you could see his horns and all.. yep, it’ll creep you out 🙂

  4. Haha! The ONLY ultrasound picture I got from my first baby was the alien angle too. :- Wish I had a cute profile shot of him haha… it totally creeeeped me out!

  5. I have a super creepy ultrasound of my daughter too. I joked that I was going to name her Skeletor Armageddon.

  6. We called our daughter Skeletor after seeing the frightening sono! We were so glad we got that 3D one free, talk about a bummer if we had wasted $100 to see what appeared to be a monster!

  • Lately Wallace has been jumping right in to everything we’re doing. He wants to watch movies with us, play ball, wrestle, eat Takis 🤣 and everything else. I forgot how much I love this stage. I think maybe it gets more fun the more kids you have. You really can not tell him he’s not a big kid. He’s not having any of that nonsense. (And yeah, he loves him some spicy Takis.) (This is totally one of those pics that looks like they swapped legs!)
  • Naps are awesome though... right? 😴
  • 🤣🤣🤣 I have quite a collection of pix of Scott doing the drop-the-baby-and-run move. #momtographer
  • It's an art form, really.
  • Father’s Day is coming fast! Would love to know what you’re planning for the dads in your life- or if you’re a dad, what would you like? I’m thinking of getting Scott a Nespresso machine.

  • "My first time seeing Eliza which was 4 long hours after her birth. @presciutti captured the moment and the tear in my eye perfectly. When I told you how amazing the staff was at Unity hospital, I meant it. I was in the bed waiting to be taken down to see Eliza, Nick had left the room for a few, and I was struggling to brush my hair because I was so weak all over from the birth. A staff member named Tomashia walked in the room, introduced herself, and saw me struggling. She sweetly offered to brush it for me. I told her I just wanted to look nice for Eliza the first time she saw my face. 🌹🙂" 📷: @wishesndishes // Just beautiful. Thank you so much for letting us share your story. 💗
