we're having a boy!!!
i'll be honest, it was a little bit of a shock. i was absolutely convinced we were having a girl. we had a girl's name picked out, i knew what i wanted to do for a girl's nursery...i was certain.
so when the ultrasound tech told us it was undoubtedly a boy, it took me a few seconds to actually react. i think i even said, "really?" she just pointed an arrow at his little bit and said "yup, definitely." i looked at matt and he was beaming.
everyone's really excited. i'm so thrilled that we can finally refer to the baby as a "he" rather than an "it" or "the baby." it helps to make it a bit more real now that i can finally assign a person-hood. i can't wait to start shopping for the fun stuff - clothes, bedding, nursery decor!
the rest of the anatomy scan went really well. baby is weighing in at about 11 ounces, so he's right on track for where we are. everything looks good and baby is healthy. i love watching the heart beat - it looks like a little butterfly fluttering around in there. as far as i'm concerned, he's pretty much the cutest thing ever.
