The Baby is a...

We went to the ultrasound appointment this afternoon, and it was incredible beyond words.   We are so in awe of this miracle of life, and we couldn't stop talking about how amazing God is afterwards!  I mean, really - there's this little 9 ounce baby growing inside of me with bones that have formed, a beating heart, and organs perfectly intact.  So many intricate details.  It's astounding, and I don't get how anyone could possibly think it's a "fetus" and not a baby! 

We soaked up those 45 minutes of watching our sweet baby moving around (and it sure is super squirmy!).  We heard the best sound in the world again - that little heart beating.  And we got to look at each and every bit of our baby, inside and out, including....

...it's teeny, tiny hands and feet, which I'm in love with and can't wait to kiss nonstop! 

And even more exciting, we found out that our baby is a...
BOY! 

We can't stop thinking about, talking about, and loving on this little boy!  It's so surreal to finally know the baby is a he! 

When we got home from the appointment, we ate dinner, celebrated by baking cupcakes for two....and then...went out to do a little shopping for our son (it sounds so weird to say that)!   I mean, we did have some Kohl's cash and it is probably acceptable to do a little shopping on the day you find out the gender! 

He is going to be one handsome little man! :) 

Now it's just a matter of waiting 22 long weeks to meet this little guy!  Our hearts are so, so full of love and we can't even wait for his arrival!  God has blessed us so immensely!

  11. Hooray! I had a feeling you were having a little boy! We always wait to find out the gender until the birth, but I do miss being able to call the little person by name while still in there. :)
