Just give 'em the bird!

I had my 20 week u/s today. That silly boy! He was so uncooperative during the ultrasound, I had to get up and walk around not once, but twice. I had to drink juice, eat some chocolate (that was tough, let me tell ya ) and he still was face and body down and all we kept getting was his rear end (and lots of tallywhacker shots, he's a boy alright). So when he finally turned up, after... ohhh, an hour and a half later, he kept putting his hands in his mouth and sucking not one, but two thumbs. You could see his jaw going to town. He was sticking his tongue out and licking his hands, OMG too freaking cute!! Then, the best thing happened that I've ever seen on an ultrasound. He was like "you made me move, you woke me up, you are annoying me, so take this!:"
Yeah lady (he was mad at the ultrasound tech - not me! ) screw you!
Just as confirmation, he's a he:
And we were trying to see if his toes are webbed (part of the syndrome that goes with the cleft lip). She couldn't really tell, but I KNOW our toes and I think this foot is webbed. You probably can't tell either by this pic, but Nathan, Luke and I have this one big fat toe that has 2 bones in it, and I think I can see that.
Here's a simple, beautiful, profile. I swear he's laughing at us!
We're almost positive that you are seeing pictures of Andrew (Drew) Jesse. I'll confirm that in a week or 2 to see if we're still concentrating on that name. Of course 2 people I know (just by association) had babies in the last 2 days and named their babies Andrew (shortened to Drew). It's a classic name but coming back full force!
The best news to report? HE'S HEALTHY! His heart is gorgeous, his brain is gorgeous, his kidneys, lungs, bladder, blood flow, fluid, bones, size, weight (12 oz.) are all perfect. I could not be happier! (Still has a cleft lip, but a second confirmation today showed that it doesn't look severe, if he would keep his fingers and hands from his mouth - 3rd ultrasound he's done this - we'd have much better information on the cleft stuff). I couldn't ask for more though, to have a healthy baby.
