I was able to capture these photographs using a setting that I discovered deep within the menus of my Canon Digital Rebel XTI camera during our trip to Highbanks Metropark. If you don't recognize this critter, it is a developing human being. That is right, Megan and I are slated to become parents, if everything goes well, around February 27, 2009. We are excited, to say the least. Tomorrow, we will be exactly twenty weeks into the pregnancy, half way there. Ok, I have to fess up. I really didn't capture these images on the trip to highbanks. Our doctor did, at an office, using this interesting GE digital camera with a very strange lens which you smear some clear jelly like stuff on. Fairly amazing camera, isn't it? I wonder where I can get one of those myself!
Everything came out well. See the lines? The doc drew eyes and a smile right on the pictures. And we did not want to find out the sex- we'll wait for it to be a surprise. Still though, we were nervous. I don't think I've ever hoped for something to be more "normal" than any time in my life. Just counting limbs was a big deal. Does it have two arms? Yes! Two legs, yes! This should be a fun ride. Hopefully blogger will be around long enough for our child to read this very post. That is weird, isn't it?
Meg and I are often to Maine tomorrow, what will probably be our last trip until the baby is ready to travel. Pretty cool, eh?
Wish us luck!
Tom & Megan
