He's a live one!

I had another ob appointment yesterday and she did another ultrasound to check on things with baby James.  He had the doctor laughing with all his silly antics.  Baby James was active during the ENTIRE ultrasound - and not just turning his head and waving type stuff.  He was pulling his foot up to his face and then stretching it back out.  He was putting his hands in front of his face and turning his head away from us and then back to us.  He was doing all kinds of things.  We have figured out why my blood sugar drops suddenly and I have to eat more and more food just to stay afloat -- this little guy is sucking away all my nutrients and energy! 

And he's not such a little guy either.  The average weight at this point is about 2.5 pounds.  James is looking like he weighs about 4 pounds.  It's all based on measurements, so we can't be for sure, but he know he's not little.  My doctor said we will check again at 36 weeks to see how big he's getting.  Oh boy!
And he has big feet!  Which is funny because neither Josh nor I have really big feet.  But my brother does, so maybe he's getting it from my side.  We got to see a few 3D pictures, too, and it looks like he might have a nose like Joshua.  Not a cute little nose like Kate.  But if he looks like his daddy, he will be a handsome boy indeed.
