This is Bo. This is my first blog post ever. It also is the first time I've ever posted anything on YouTube. Anyways, we thought this would be a cool way to share this for anybody that wanted to see our little boy's first videos.
It was friggin' amazing to see what all they can do with the ultrasound machine. Not too suprisingly, they can record everything on a DVD-RW. Not a DVD-R. Which, by the way, is what I brought for us to record the event onto. So we had to buy one there. But it was a small price to pay for what we got in return. This thing has some amazing resolution, I think. But I don't know much about birthin' no babies. Thanks to my friend Brian at work I was able to rip the files off the DVD and thought this would be a good place to post them in case anyone wanted to see them. So, on with the show:
This is the first one of four. In it, he's blowing a smoke ring. Weird, right?
Number two. In this he looks like the Terminator. You can see the lens of his eye. Just like the T-1000. Nash is already cool. Or a nerd. Maybe a cool nerd.
Number 3: really cool. I mean, this is really amazing to anyone interested in pumping technology. The technician was able to move this little cursor around into the different chambers of the heart and listen to each section. I mean, you can tell the difference in the positive-pressure chambers and the negative-pressure chambers. Awesome! Also you can see something they do where they "view" the cord's flow and stuff. Really amazing to me. Also really makes me wonder sometime how people think all this stuff happens without an "intelligent designer." A really intelligent designer...
Finally, number 4. This is the one where we finally saw that he is a BOY. Sweet! Also of note to my engineering brain is that his femur was exactly 2.53 cm. That is almost exactly an inch (2.54 cm). So the biggest bone in his body is about the size of one of the little bones in my finger. That really helped me with perspective. I know we're a little late in posting this (we got the news about 2 weeks ago), but now he's 12 ounces and about 10-1/2 in tall. If only i could think of a reference item that is 12 ounces and about 10 inches tall...Anyways, here's the last video:
I guess that's it for now. I tried to get some annotations onto the videos but it was kinda dragging, so I figured we'd just post them for now and let anyone see them that wants to do so. Finally, one cool thing is that for the future ultrasounds, they can just burn them all to the same DVD. Sweet.
