Last night was Perfect

(Mason giving us the "thumbs up")

Last night was a very happy night.

Last night we got to go to our 3d sonogram with Cindy & Dennis of 4d ultrasound! They ever so kindly offered to do a 3d sonogram of our Mason. It was a gesture that was so kind it brought tears to my eyes. As Cindy said " its something that was needed"...and Cindy, it really was. It was ever so needed.

After all the doom & gloom, we needed something to be happy about. And this sonogram was the answer.

We had Mason's "biggest fans" there with us. My parents, Cory's parents, and Cory's grandparents. We all shuffled into the room (that is set up like a spa! oh so relaxing). Everyone took a seat . Thanks to the 3 large screens...everyone could clearly see. Mason popped right up on the screen.... and for the next hour & 45min...we enjoyed our little boy. He looked absolutely perfect on that screen. He wiggled , waved, stuck his tongue out, and kept yawning (apparently we were boring him). It was amazing to just lay back and watch him. Cindy even recorded Mason's heartbeat and put the recording into a little blue bear ( this is something I will hold very dear to my we will always be able to hear Mason's hb) It was so very special for us.

After the ultrasound was over we all chatted and viewed the photos Cindy had printed for us. Then reality hit again..and the tears started falling. As happy as we were, we still knew Mason has a long journey ahead. As my tears fell, Cindy came a gave me the biggest hug, said "I love you", and told me they were praying for Mason. To have such kind people around you while life is difficult makes all the difference in the world.

Cindy & Dennis and those type of people. They didnt have to offer to do the sono, or spend an extra 45min trying to get a face shot of Mason, but they did. And for that Iam ever so very thankful.

Thank you again Cindy and Dennis.

And now onto our sweet Mason's photos!
