{It's a Boy!}

Baby bump: 20 weeks
We had our first ultrasound today and got the very exciting news that we are having a boy! It absolutely sent me for a loop. I've thought all along it was a girl. But we couldn't be happier :)

The ultrasound was so incredibly awe inspiring! Lance and I are still on cloud nine about it. To see our little guy moving around, twisting, to see the four chambers of his heart, and yes, even his little manhood; it's something I cannot describe. Everything about him is so absolutely perfect and tiny; the very mix of us both. There is one picture of his profile that I can't stop looking at. You can see his head, eyes, nose, lips and tiny chin so clearly! It is incredible such a tiny perfect being is inside of me.

The technician said everything is developing perfectly. And, surprisingly, he is not even small despite my extreme sickness for the first 3 months. She even kept commenting on how active he was compared to most of the babies she sees. I could have told you that a long time ago! When I told her I felt him at 15 weeks, she responded, "Normally, when women tell me that they've felt their baby so early, I would think they were kidding themselves but I absolutely believe you." I guess he takes after his daddy and is going to be a busy little bee. :)




The front view. Not very noticeable but you do notice I have NO waistline.

That is so, so exciting! I guess you have the same mother's instinct that I do. I was absolutely positive that Makenna was a boy. I can't wait to see your ultrasound pictures. It's so fun to know that you have that little life inside of you. Can't wait to see our FIRST nephew. (: Now I get to be the aunt!
