Monday Announcement!!!

It's a BOY!!!

We are so excited! Boys are so much fun and we can't wait to see our new little one! He was kind of a stinker during the ultrasound though! He was laying on the placenta face down with his hands by his head and his legs "indian style" and pulled up into his body the whole time. He would kick and move his arms occasionally, but he never rolled over. That means the ultrasound tech could only see two chambers of his heart...the heartbeat was normal and everything else looked good, so they are not worried, but we will have to have another ultrasound at my regular appointment in February. (I'm actually kind of glad - I wanted to see more of him anyway!! Also, we didn't get that many great pictures because of the position he was in, so next time I'll load up on chocolate before I go to the doctor. :) )

The best part of the ultrasound was when he got the hiccups! You could see his little body bounce with each one - and when we listened to the heartbeat, the sound would kind of skip each time he hiccuped. He is amazing.

Can't wait to show you photos!

God Bless all of you!!


  1. Hooray! I can't imagine how life would be without my two little boys! They will have a blast together. So excited for you!!!!!

  2. P.S. Both of my children were stinkers during their ultrasounds. They always hid their tiny little faces in the placenta and jumping jacks and going to the bathroom never even made them move an inch. Stinkers... But unlike you, I didn't want to see their faces 4-D. I liked the extended surprise (we also didn't find out their sex.) But hopefully since you like to see them you will get a better shot in Feb.

  3. that's so exciting! i can't wait to meet him!

  4. yay! I was right, i love that you are having another BOY!!! So exciting. Laura Boyd was telling me about her baby in her belly having hiccups just yesterday. Fantastic experience!

    I'm so excited with your news. Cant wait to see the photos!
