Below is a 3D image from our last ultrasound. Supposedly all five babies can be seen in the picture. When I first saw the picture, I have to admit that I thought it looked more like modern art than a photo of my future five. However if you stare at it long enough (kind of like those 3D pictures that were so popular in the 90's), you can actually see at least four of the five babies. (The ultrasound gal claims baby five is along the bottom somewhere.)
In addition to being the halfway through my pregnancy, today was significant in our family for another reason. Today my daughter, Kaiya, had her very first "real" haircut. Since her birth, I have only trimmed the ends enough to even things up and given her bangs. It was actually a hard thing for me to chop her hair off----I love cute girl hair, big bows, french braids, pig tails, etc. (thus my excitement over the slightly higher estrogen levels in the quints gender split). However, I am leaving for Arizona in exactly one week and will likely be on bedrest soon after that. Short hair is easier to maintain. Despite my sadness at getting her hair cut, I have to admit that Kaiya looks pretty cute with her short bob. We are going to donate her chopped off hair to Locks of Love, which Kaiya is also excited about. I guess it is time to put away the scrunchies, ribbons, fru-fru bows and ponytail holders and go buy some cute barrettes!
