Winking From the Womb

Technology is amazing... I think we can all agree on that. What is CRAZY amazing is 4-D technology that can bring you video of an unborn child.

When my grandparents came to visit this week (which I'll tell you more about in a later post) my cousin Maria came to hang out with us as well. She is currently seven months pregnant with a gorgeous little girl who will soon be coming into the world to meet her two older brothers.

How do I know she's a gorgeous little girl, you ask? Because I've already seen video of her that has ridiculous clarity. Do you know what else I saw? That she is totally ready for anything life throws at her... I know this because she gave us a sign. She winked at us.

I'm so not kidding. Look at the video below and you will see the little stinker open one eye for a second. She is brilliant. She isn't even born yet and she knows how to wink.

I think she gets it from me. :)

My aunt and uncle (the proud grandparents) are currently in Europe and I hope they are checking my blog so they can see their newest granddaughter displaying her superior winking skills. I can't wait to meet this little genius.

Since we're on the topic of babies, and I do mean babies... my friend Nicole just found out her unborn twins are GIRLS. She and her husband are now going to be the proud parents of four little beautiful girlies, and the bows in that house are about to double. Wow. Fun isn't a big enough word!!!


  1. Holy cow, ultrasounds have come a long way. What a precious little girl. How fun that was to see that little wink! Thanks for sharing. And congrats to the new mamma.

  2. How SWEET! I love newborns. OH my goodness. My neighbor is having a baby soon and this video just got me even more fired up about holding her precious little girl! I hope she needs LOTS of sleep while I keep the baby.

  3. I love seeing these high def pics - they amaze me! Even regular ultrasounds are so much clearer than when I had my kids. And twin girls sounds like a little more fun that I am up for but I'm old :D

  4. That's awesome!! Technology is

    But now...GOD...He's really awesome:

    Certainly you made my mind and heart; you wove me together in my mother’s womb. I will give you thanks because your deeds are awesome and amazing. You knew me thoroughly; my bones were not hidden from you, when I was made in secret and sewed together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw me when I was inside the womb. All the days ordained for me were recorded in your scroll before one of them came into existence.
