This is Baby Peron at 12 weeks.
The technician's first comment "This is a very uncooperative baby. It won't get in the right position for a picture."
My first thought, "It looks like Mark."
I told Mark I saw the ear. He said, "It hasn't got ears yet." I said, "I think it has almost everything already." But I think he wasn't convinced. And now I'm not so sure either. Perhaps I just saw some transluscency of the skull and the brain therin.
I somehow also imagined the heartbeat would appear as a huge glowing beacon, similar to E.T. Instead it was a subtle little beating light. B.P. seemed to be sleeping at first, and I wanted more proof of life, so I was relieved when its little arms began flailing around.
"It's going to be a drummer," I told Mark at dinner.
"Not a soccer player?" he asked.
"Did you see those scrawny legs? Nope. Drummer."
