We are in love!

We were so surprised to hear, "It's a boy." The whole experience was very surreal! We were in the ultrasound room for about 45 minutes and seriously saw every organ and part of our baby boy's body. It was truly amazing. Some things we could really see and some things we just said, "okay, that's the femur." Our sweet baby boy is very active and the ultrasound technician told us that he was very squirmy. It was almost like he was trying to hide. During the ultrasound we saw the profile of his face but he was moving around too much to get really good pictures. His little feet are so cute. The best thing is that his development is perfect, his heart rate is good, and his size is good. He is 12 ounces, the size of a can of soda.

James and I really thought we were having a girl for some reason. Thank you Laurie for the fun name website. We have already spent awhile on it playing around. It's difficult to pick boy names now because we had two that we loved but I know we will find the perfect name by September.

We close on our house next Thursday and will slowly start moving our stuff over to the new house. In the meantime, I'm shopping for a boy. :)

What a great ultrasound! Isn't it amazing how fast they grow?! Brian and I have a girl name, but no boy name yet so we're also always keeping our ears open for boy names. Can't wait to hear yours! So fun! :-)

WOW! That is awesome! He has long legs! I like the names Seth, Joseph, Andrew... Simple names. I have discovered that after being in Hawaii, we LOVE the name Makena for a girl!

Congrats to you again! Can't wait to meet him!

Have fun shopping! He truly does look adorable in the ultrasound- it always amazes me to hear the actual size of the baby because they always look so big when they are really oh so tiny!

Laura said...

Congrats!!! I totally missed the hint in your last post. (I'm that brain dead these days.) Soooo exciting. Boys are truly awesome!

Oliver said...

Yeah- a boy!! Start buying trucks and anything with wheels! Well, maybe not quite yet. You're going to love having a boy- I know I do. I'm excited for you guys!

P.S. Help me build a house for a needy family in Vietnam and you could win a single/double stroller.
