It's A ....


BOY!!!!!
We had our ultrasound today and it was so much fun to watch our little guy moving around! I was actually surprised to find out we're having a boy because I thought for sure it'd be a girl! But I am carrying lower (who knows if that has anything to do with it) and this pregnancy is a lot different than with Lily. Anyway, we are just excited that he's a healthy looking boy! I go to my OB tomorrow to get the "official" readings on the ultrasound, but as far as we could tell on the giant screen, he's perfect. During the ultrasound he was just laying around all comfy with his hands resting behind his head, then he put his hand in his ear at one point, and then he had the hiccups at the end. It's just amazing to me that God creates this little baby and how He forms him! Truly a miracle! Especially for us :) The one thing the ultrasound tech did find out, is that baby was measuring bigger. So, instead of my due date being November 17th, it's now November 6th!! Yahoo!! Anyway, it'll be fun to have a change in clothes, bedding, diaper bags, etc. Too bad I've got such cute girl stuff stored though! Maybe for number 3? Who knows! And to try and figure out a name! Boy names are soo hard for us! We didn't have one with Lily either, so we were really thankful she was a girl! So, I will gladly take any suggestions you may have! Here are a few pictures of our son (so weird to say that!!)

Profile shot-his hand is by his face

His little foot

And a nice, clear shot of his boy part! I love that there's an arrow pointing to "it"!
I will admit that I was kinda hoping for a girl. I don't know why, maybe because we had a few girl names picked out, or maybe because I already know what to do with a girl, or maybe because I thought I could reuse all the girl things I have! But, as I look at these photos and feel him kicking me, the more excited I'm becoming! It will be so fun to have 1 of each. Lily now knows to say there's a baby brother in my tummy too! I'm just so thankful for this gift that God's given us!

And a belly shot when I was 16 weeks. Although, now that my due date is changed, I would've been 18 weeks in this picture! That is crazy! No wonder I was feeling huge :)

WHAT!?!?!?!?! Without internet temporarily I have been out of the blogging world and totally missed any announcement you were even pregnant, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Boy names are soooo hard I agree, that is how we ended up with such an unusual one, it was actually a joke from Dan in the middle of the night hahaha. Anyway, I am so totally excited and can't wait to get caught up when we get internet again! ( I am stealing from some neighbor right now hee hee ;op)
