baby sunshine's shenanigans {+ giveaway}

the old expression "he's a ham" popped into my head during my 13 week ultrasound and nuchal translucency screening last week. the ultrasound tech was trying to measure the back of baby boy's neck. but he just would not roll over for anything. he kept putting his face up to the ultrasound wand and waving at us. it was seriously the cutest thing ever. well, except that he looks a little like skeletor from "He-Man" for those of you 80's gals. 


the poor lady had me roll over several times, go to the bathroom…anything she could think of. after he was good and ready (about 40 minutes of his shenanigans), he finally decided to roll over and stop posing for the wand. she was able to measure what she needed to measure. 

the result of the nt scan was negative. yay! so far this pregnancy has been smooth sailing. since the journey to conceive was so rough, maybe i will get lucky with pregnancy and child birth. one can hope anyways…

here's a bump update for anyone who is itching for one.

and oh my cuteness. look at this onesie for baby sunshine. how fitting…

trulysanctuary onesie - 12 months
my fashion blogger friend, yi-chia at always maylee, turned me on to this fun etsy shop called trulysanctuary. it is a husband and wife team, out of portland. they hand make each piece of clothing. the ideas begin on a simple sketchpad and each graphic is designed to keep items unique. 

this hubby and wife duo are kinda my heroes because they've managed to escape the rat race and do what they love….and the result is a quality, quirky product for us to enjoy. 

and because they're awesome,
they are offering to give away any one item in their shop (winner's choice) on this blog. to enter the giveaway, just follow trulysanctuary on one of their social media outlets and leave a comment below.

I loved that sono! With Liam he would not stop bouncing around like he was on a slide, just back and forth the whole time! My husband said he's going to be a wild child, and he turned out to be this awesome little mischief baby. He'll be one next month :) I should buy him one of those cute quirky tee shirts! I liked their Facebook page.

Ashley Sanderson said...

Our sweet baby sunshine has the EXACT onesie! I actually bought it the month we started trying to conceive 2 years ago before we ever knew of the struggles we would face. My husband used to sing this song to me all the time and I knew it would have extreme importance to us in the future and it definitely did! :) I have a picture of her in it in the NICU :) I wish I could attach a picture on this comment for you to see!

Following trulysanctuary on Twitter. They are adorable! Almost as adorable as your baby bump.... Oh my goodness! Love that you call him Sunshine. I used to sing that song to my son, "You are my son-shine, my only son-shine". I could do that since I only had one son. So can you! :) I'm just so happy for you.

Hope you're feeling great and that you do have a super smooth pregnancy. :)

Yay for a great ultrasound! And I love the sunshine onesie! :)

JenS said...

So funny. I actually bought a onesie from that etsy shop. The one that says "Nobody puts baby in a corner". Sadly they have just about grown out of it.
You look adorable, by the way. :)

Amanda Hoyt said...

awesome! following :-) prayers for a wonderful pregnancy.

Rachel and John said...

My first baby was like that too for his 13 weeker. My favourite part was when the tech asked me to empty just a quater of my bladder....

Amber said...

Rylee did the same thing at our NT scan. Nothing worked! They had to schedule us for another day. Darn, we got an extra ultrasound. :)
I'm glad things are going so well for you. Hopefully it continues to be smooth sailing! I love a giveaway, so I liked them on Facebook.

Loving the bump!!

Lizzylou said...

I've been following your blog for about six months now and I'm so incredibly thrilled for you and your baby sunshine. :) It gives me hope as I start the IVF process myself. Thank you for sharing your journey!

Em said...

You look just lovely, Jessah. So thrilled for you.

I can haz babyz? said...

I'm so happy for you and your DH!! I think you should give your LO the nickname Skelator. I loved the 80's cartoons. Although my DH may have liked them a little more than me since he named our house castle plundarr from the 80's cartoon "ThunderCats". :)

BTW, you are looking so adorable lady!!
