it’s a…

photobooth

yep, that’s right!!  there is a little boy in that belly!  we are so excited, especially Levi.  even though he’d have been just as happy if it was a little girl, he was down right ecstatic to hear that it is a boy.  I always pictured myself with two kids – a boy first.  so when the tech confirmed there were definitely boy parts, we high-fived each other again – we’re big on high-fives.

during the ultrasound our little man was wiggling and stretching and being uber cute.  the ultrasound technician went over every part of his anatomy, from his tiny heart to the little toes on his feet.  she told us he had long skinny feet and long legs.  I’m hoping that means he’ll be tall and slender, like his dad.  look at that leg shot!

now we need to come up with names!!  boy names have been so difficult for us from the start.  we’ve got a few on our list including a middle name we want for sure.  most of all, we were so happy to see our little man.  he’s precious and perfect in every way and we can not wait to meet him.  21 more weeks!

    this is wonderful! you two look so happy!

    the image with the leg is so cool.

    ok, omg, I can’t believe that I will tell you that. just before my last echography (I was VERY nervous), one of my friends wanted to make me smile so she said “ah, listen to that, if it is a boy, that means that for 40 weeks you will have a penis in your belly”!!! sometimes, stupid things do the trick :)

    congratulations again!
