On Friday (while in Utah) I went to Fetal Fotos in Murray to see my little babe with my mom & two sisters. I cried throughout the entire ultrasound. I just love that little baby so much already, that seeing those teeny features again made my heart so happy. What a miracle. The tech was fantastic. She made me feel like she was genuinely excited about MY baby. She kept saying "Oooooh, look how cute!" She commented how cute my baby's nose was... Which was nice to hear, since on the first ultrasound, the nose appeared gigantic, due apparently to an arm right in the view of where the nose is ;) Darn ultrasounds can be deceiving. It was a great experience. When it came time for the reveal of the gender, we all shut our eyes. I threatened my mom & sisters with their lives. The gal sealed this info in an envelope so that we could go back to the house and Skype with B & Will to all find out together. Let me tell you... That 3 hours between getting the envelope & B getting home from work were the hardest of my life.

Since the day I found out I was pregnant I was positive it was a girl. I had little doubt. I had already named her. Had had dreams of her on several occasions.

And guess what?

Momma is wrong as usual.

It's a BOY!

I did a double take when I looked at the ultrasound picture, as if I perhaps just couldn't read. But whether or not I can read is irrelevant because the proof was right there in front of me... No mistaking the teeny little "indicator" on that ultrasound.

I am thrilled. WE are thrilled. I have been smiling for three days. I can't even sleep... All I can do is think about my little one. And talk to him. I love you baby boy. I can't wait to meet you.
