The Big Reveal

I thought about waiting until this afternoon because I bought some really cute stuff I want to post pictures of, but I guess I'll do that later. Well....the verdict is...

It's a BOY!
(I believe the little blck spot is his bladder)

Introducing Toots Thorne!

They aren't the greatest quality because I took pictures of the printout from my phone so I would be able to post them on here and facebook before I went home. Everything looked great with him and he is actually measuring three days ahead (meaning due date would be January 14 instead of January 17) but the doctor said since it's within three days of the original due date that he wasn't going to change it. Also, all my weekly update e-mails about how big the baby is said he should be 10.5 ounces this week and he was weighing in at a whopping 14.6 ounces! He's a big boy! We got to see him kicking around and sticking his hands up in the air. She had a hard time getting a profile picture because he had his face burrowed into me so she kept trying to shake him around to show us a profile and finally got it. The doctor said he is too big now to get a measurement because they can't get his whole body on the ultrasound screen at once. But, when she was taking the measurements, she was going ALL over my belly up to my belly button, so he's taking up most all of the space.

If the baby was born on January 14th, he would be born on my Papa's (mom's dad's) birthday, so that would be exciting.

Those of you that voted "boy" were right! I will post pictures of the adorable things we bought after the ultrasound tonight. If you've got any baby advice or advice about little boys, please post it!

I only have one and he is a boy but I wouldn't trade him. Oh and be prepared to get "rained" on, because it will happen.
