Baby Morrow’s 3-D Ultrasound

We got a 3-D ultrasound in Jacksonville today. Jackson (the baby) didn’t cooperate too much, but we were able to get some good face shots. It will be hard to make him out at first, but it’s like a magic-eye picture–once you see him, you see him. Some hints: the top, left part of his head faded in the ultrasound; his nose is just above center in the first two pics; the first 2 pics are 3 quarter profile shots; the second pics are profile shots.

Baby Morrow’s 3-D Ultrasound.

This post is very special to me. This is my son. It seems unnatural that I can see his face in the womb, but we have this glimpse none-the-less. Over the last few days hundreds of family and friends have taken part in our joy. It is a humbling thing to realize how much joy my family brings to those around me. Jackson, this is only a small testament to how you are loved by those who have only seen a glimpse of you and of God’s manifold grace that already envelopes you. You are my milestone and it is a beautiful thing that my space here on the internet celebrates you.

Expecting…

For a day and a half now, I have tried to find a clever way to write this in the midst of calling and visiting all of my close relatives and friends. How do I share this with my blog friends? Well, here you go.

My wife and I will be expecting of first child (or children–twins run in her family) in February of next year.

Father we thank you for your marvelous gift;
you have allowed us to share in your divine parenthood.
During this time of waiting,
we ask you to protect and nurture
these first mysterious stirrings of life.
May our child come safely into the light of the world
and to the new birth of baptism. Amen
