It’s a BOY!

(Jeff’s blog title suggestion: Twig & Berries!)

Today was the big day, and a BIG day it was!  This ranks up there with one of the GREATEST days of my life. I can’t even begin to explain the feeling when the sonographer drew the little arrow and typed in the letters B O Y!  Thanks to the fact that I had not only convinced myself it was going to be a precious little girl but also dreamt that it was a girl last night, it took most of the morning for it to really set in that it's actually a boy.

Gratefully, our baby boy appears to be healthy & happy in his little home.  He weighed in at a hefty 12 ounces.  He still likes to squirm all over the place and wave his arms over his head.  He did quite a bit of yawning today too.  Cutest.thing.ever.  

Of course Jeff is thrilled to death about all of this, but mostly, I think he’s happy that I can stop calling our baby an “it.”   While we waited in the exam room to see my OB, I asked him if he had any ideas for the nursery.  Naturally, his creative mind came up with one instantly - Vintage Playboy (because who doesn't like vintage?!?).  I think mom may be making the decisions for the nursery decor from here on out. 

 Our little munchkin!

Such a sweet little foot (1 inch long!)

And the anatomy shot of the day 
(this view is as though he's in a seated position 
with his legs stretched out and the photo is 
being taken from under his bottom)

A New Chapter

After much internal debate, I’ve decided to make an attempt at a baby blog.  Since we have family and friends scattered about the country (and since scrapbooking is not in my blood), I thought I’d give the blog idea a try.  I spend plenty of time at the computer as it is, so what’s a few more minutes a day (or maybe a week…we’ll see how diligent I am about keeping up with this)?  Thanks Abby for helping me make my blog world debut!

As everyone knows by now, we have a little one on the way!  Jeff and I are excited beyond belief and frankly, a little scared as well.  Mostly, we feel truly blessed.  I am 18 weeks and feeling great.  We’ve had two sonograms (see below), and YES, we will be finding out the sex at our next appointment on 1/25.  Needless to say, we can’t wait!
