Week 19: The Big Question




These are the first images of our baby.

I can't even explain how this feels. It's very overwhelming and exciting. It makes everything seem real.

And the big news:

It's a ...........

BOY!


He's fiesty too. He was flaunting his manhood, showing off. He made the ultrasound tech laugh!

He also kicked back at the ultrasound device. I couldn't feel it, but we could see it. The tech said we are going to have our hands full with this one. Taking after Richard already.

It's amazing what you can see on the ultrasound. We could see him moving his mouth (talking back already!). He made a pouty face. He was rubbing his eyes.
The tech kept trying to get him to put his hand down. She made me switch from my back to my left side to my back to my right side. She pushed on him, jiggled him, begged him. He moved, rolling almost completely around, but wouldn't move his hand from his face. Little stinker.
Richard was just in awe. He wanted a copy of the pictures so he could show them off. He's going to keep one taped to his work clip board.

We were hoping for a girl. But Richard said it best: "As soon as the image came up on the screen, I didn't care what we were having. I'm just happy we're having one. I'm not disappointed at all."
Exactly. He's healthy (ten fingers, ten toes) and boisterous. That's more than we could ever hope for.
PS: I'll post larger pictures of the ultrasound pictures

I gotta give another EEEEEEEEEE!! squeal of excitement! :)

This does just make it so real - the whole things just blows my mind. We can grow human beings Kelly - ah! :) I'm so happy for you guys!

I always think I want a girl first but having a boy first is great. I always wanted an older brother - they are so protective. Older sisters can be very harmful - or at least I probably was :) So - CONGRATS ON THE BABY BOY!

i love you!

You can look at the picture bigger by clicking on it.

Think of boys as this: loyal, fiercely so, who do not often hold grudges, who love their mamas very much. Boys are like wiggly puppies sometimes, so easy to please.
