Day 70 – 4D Ultrasound

We were blessed with another amazing opportunity to peek in at Nora with a 4D  ultrasound at Stork Vision! I’m so thankful for the compassion and generosity that these sweet people have given us.

It has been 5 weeks since our last 4D ultrasound. Nora seems to have grown considerably since then. She’s definitely got some sweet chubby little cheekies (which I can’t wait to “bite”)! There were even some little hair wisps detected! That was a real surprise, considering Gavin & Greta barely had any hair at all! She must take after her oldest sister!  🙂

Here are some of the images from today:

I wonder what she thinks about in there, not as if though she has all that many life experiences to ponder upon. I wonder if she could see/feel the warm sunshine shining through my skin this morning. I wonder if she could hear the symposium of bird songs, the distant train whistle. I wonder if she could smell the fresh fragrance of spring in the air. I wonder if she could sense the glorious pink and purple sky at dusk. Despite the brokenness of this world there remains the contrast of beauty shown forth in God’s artistry; mere hints of heaven on earth.

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.”
(Ecclesiastes 3:11-12 NIV)

  1. She is a little peace of heaven tucked away all perfect in your belly. I’m sure she was able to experience this beautiful day in her own way… Feeling mom’s heart race, happiness flowing through your veins and into hers as you felt the sun and caught the breezes. Thanks for sharing these pictures. She is beautiful Aleisa!

  2. Aleisa, I am certain you do not remember me, but I was friends with Suzanne in grade school and met you several times via the Klaene backyard. I have read your posts and cried with your delight and your heartbreak. Your words are some of the most genuine, heartfelt, wondrous, and beatifully written I have ever seen. Your little Nora is gorgeous and I say a prayer for you, her, and your family each day. I am in awe of your grace and appreciation for that bundle of life growing in your body and your heart. I read your thoughts, wonderings, and quotes and find them inspiring to be even more appreciative of the blessing I have in my life.

  3. She looks like a Yusko 🙂 So precious, beautiful, peaceful and comfortable. You are a pillar of strength that I think of every day and I’m so proud to be your friend. You, your family and precious little Nora are so loved and thought about by so many daily. Blessings, prayers and love for you and your journey is limitless. Love you Aleisa.

  4. I CANNOT START TO EXPRESS HOW BEAUTIFUL LITTLE NORA IS. THIS JOURNEY WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY IS ONE I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER. I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH 2 SONS, AND I KNOW THE LOVE YOU FEEL. I ADMIRE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, THE WAY YOUR FAITH IS SO STRONG. I ONLY HOPE THAT YOU WILL PUBLISH THIS AS A BOOK, YOUR WORDS OF WISDOM IS LIKE NONE OTHER I HAVE EVER READ. I MAY NOT HAVE MET YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, BUT I SINCERELY LOVE YOU ALL. GOD BLESS. MY PRAYERS ARE WITH ALL YOUR FAMILY.
