It's A Boy!

Today has been thrilling.

Our ultrasound was scheduled for 3:15 and the closer it came, the more nervous I felt. And excited! Oh sweet mercy, was I excited.

The ultrasound technicians aren't allowed to reveal the gender but I held out hope that if I was sweet enough, mine would talk.

I was right ;-)

She hadn't been looking for long before she sat back, spun the screen so I could see and laughed.

"Look at that!" she said.

I have never been very good at reading an ultrasound before. I need everything pointed out to me.

Not this time.

Imagine a little one, bent at the waist, legs apart showing off their parts.

Well, that was our son.

We didn't go into this hoping for one gender over the other. We knew we'd be happy with whatever God had for us.

Everything seemed to be ok, although the technician couldn't really go into details. I have to go back in two weeks because she couldn't see his heart clearly or his nose or lips.

He was flipping all over the place, hiding his face. But.... here is the best picture she could give me today.



Hopefully I'll have a nice profile pic to share with you in the next couple of weeks.

She called Ian and the children in to see him, and I was amazed at how clearly Sam could see things on the screen. He identified elbows from knees, arms from legs. At one point it looked like the baby was waving at us. :-)

The funniest part? His mouth got moving and I said, "Oh look at that mouth moving, he's definitely one of us!"

As soon as we left, the children wanted to know if I knew what the gender was. I teased them with "maybe I know... and maybe I don't...but maybe I do...unless I don't..."

They both wanted a brother so badly. Sam has been telling us that if he gets one more sister he's going to start listing them on ebay!

My heart is so full tonight.
