Carter at 29 Weeks, 2 Days

We finally came up with a name, but we still haven't settled on a middle name. It is funny, because I look back at our list of names early on in the pregnancy and we considered the name Carter but I scratched it off the list pretty early. After looking at tens of thousands of names, we came back around to it and decided we really like it. So, Carter it is! Any suggestions for a middle name would be greatly appreciated!
Yesterday we went to have a 3-D (or is it 4-D?) ultrasound performed. Unfortunately, Hank decided to be stubborn, and this is pretty much the extent of what we saw:

He kept both hands covering his face the entire time. We have ONE shot where you can see a profile of his eyes and nose, and he is covering up only his mouth with his upper arm, but it is kind of like one of those optical illusions where you either see the old woman or the young woman--I think I would have to point everything out to you for you to see it. Here it is:

I can see his precious little fat cheeks and little nose, can you? The ultrasound estimated his current weight as 3 pounds, 11 ounces, or 2 weeks ahead. He is pretty much measuring 2 weeks ahead on everything except head circumference, which is measuring 3 weeks ahead--lucky me. Jacob's head was in the 95th percentile when he was born--hence the C-section. :( Anyway, we are supposed to go back sometime next week for another 3D/4D ultrasound to try to see his face again. We got another good 2-D profile shot. Precious boy. *Sigh*.
