Growing up Fast

After all the fuss I've been making about Oceana growing up, it has come to my attention that she is not the only one.

Now, granted, my ultrasounds were 2 and 4 weeks ago respectively, but I'm lazy, forgetfull, and pregnant (which excuses the first two). Here are som pictures of our new little one, who I nicknamed "Tiny" because I needed a clever name to put inside a card for Matt a few weeks ago. Oceana was "Roo", Joshua was "Sammy" and this one? I don't know, but "Tiny" was a whim, and reminds me of a large, hairy Italian man.

Well, size is all relative. Here's few pictures of our newest baby.


10 weeks. 4 cm (1.5 in) long.


12 weeks. 6.8 cm (2.6 in)

This is on the same machine. The growth is as you see it! Um, WOW!

I guess this one's growin' up fast too. And according to averages, by now the baby is 8.7 cm or (3.42 in) already!

Ok. A three inch long baby. But still! It's big compared to a month ago!

No longer "Bean" I guess. Perhaps still "Tiny". But have you got any clever suggestions?

  1. You mean suggestions other than adorable, wonderful, amazing, precious, lovable, & the list goes on?

    Ok, how about "wonder kid"? You might not remember them but they were twins on Saturday morning cartoons along w/ the rest of the "Justice League". I know, WAY before your time!

    "Tiny" to me is always some really huge bald man. Don't know why.

  2. I have always refered to new little babies as 'peanut'. Maybe it is because they resemble a peanut and it is such a cute non gender specific reference.

    Your peanut is beautiful!! I am praying for a blessed pregnacy and a beautiful baby.

    Hugs~

  4. Susie,
    I loved the pics of the new addition. It's funny you should mention names for the baby prior to "naming" the baby.

    My son was "whopper". :) My daughter was "jewl". I don't know why I called them that but it stuck for a bit. "Tiny" is a sweet name for a precious little one.

    I look forward to many other pics. Take care and get some rest.

  5. When I was pregnant with my son, my husband was calling him "pinapple head" No one ever knew why (including me) until he was born...he had tons of dark brown hair and it stuck up on top of his head, just like a pineapple. go figure...I guess our words really do have power. lol.
    Much love and blessings for you and your new baby.

  8. I have nothing creative for a nickname...sorry! I have to tell ya though, I am just amazed and in awe of God and his creation! Seeing those pictures...amazing. It reminds me all over again how much of a miracle babies truly are.

  9. Eli was Smidgen (smid-jin... do you use that word?) from conception just about. He still gets it. Ultrasounds will never cease to amaze me. God is so clever.

  10. It really is amazing how fast they grow! I have ultrasound pics that look just like that & I love them! Little bitty babies are so incredible!! I think it is amazing that their little bodies are already working so hard... Very sweet! Thanks for sharing!!

  11. We also refered to our babies as peanut...or another really original one- 'the baby' lol. We found out what we were having with the last two so after that 20 week mark we just used their names...which backfired with Kolby because his name was going to be Brayden until a couple weeks before he was born. Seeing your US pictures just makes me all giggly ...Pregnancy is the most amazing thing to me...I loved it- and since Im not sure I'll ever be there again I'll live Vicariously through the pictures and stories you post.lol. Hope everything is going well with work and home :)

    The pictures of Tiny are truly amazing. Having never had the joy/pleasure/exciting of personally experiencing pictures like that I am in total awe of them. WOW.........

  15. oh my, goes without saying, but the thought of giving birth to birth to a huge hairy Italian man makes me cross my legs!! - perhaps a little bald one?!

  19. OH!! I thought of another one... Wombat! get it? Womb... at... hehe. We had friends who called their baby that. We adopted it for Amy.

  20. I dont really have any witty names but a warning. We nicknamed our first peanut and ironically he's deathly allergic to them. So avoid foods you like to keep around! After that we started referring to them as dash-1 or 2.

    You should let Oceana pick them name. The nickname that is... not the real name. That could just spell trouble.

  21. I called my daughter "The Blob"..Thats what she looked like on the u/s screen at 7 weeks.. Everybody called her blob until she was born and named.

  22. Hey Susie,
    My husband and I are m's in Germany, and I have your blog on my favorites. CONGRATS on your pregnancy. I am also expecting, but due the first week of May. I have not gone public yet. We were told we would never have a bio baby, so this little guy or gal -who we have nicknamed tadpole is our miracle baby. We also have a beautiful daughter, Emeline, (almost 20 months) who we adopted from Guatemala. She is such a gift from God. I am thrilled she is going to get to be a big sister. I am still a bit bonkers and am ready to be out of the first trimester, so I can spill the beans to our family and friends. Anyway, I have been praying for you, and am so happy for you. I am looking forward to watching you little "Tiny" grow! CONGRATULATIONS!

  23. How about "peanut"?? I always thought that was a cute nickname for an early fetus in utero....

  24. Oh what beautiful pictures of the grandbaby that God told me he already knew about...being formed in the womb! Awesome! Tears, and more tears. Let me know what to name the new file in my pictures folder for our new addition to the family.

  25. When I was pregnant with my son we called him "Bun" as in "Bun in the Oven" It stuck until a few weeks after he was born and actually had a name.

  26. No time to read all the posts...I should be knitting...(((grins)))...just wanted to mention that I always called DS peanut...boring I know, and then DD was "Big Bird" b/c I saw an episode of Full House and Michelle called Becky's baby (before they knew they were having twins) "Big Bird" and I thought it was too funny! I also used Bubby sometimes. I like Tiny...and also think of a large, hair, burly, italian man! LOL!
