And it's a...


A sweet image like this is what I've been keeping in my mind and heart since we found out. It helps as the image of a pink and green nursery fades away. And I'm far more interested in the possibility of a third child now. =) I'm not getting a shopping buddy this time around, but maybe later? Who knows....

Right now, time to focus on snails and puppy dog tails. And little boy snuggles; who can forget about those? Seth is going to LOVE having a brother, I'm sure. They're going to get soooo dirty together. And I'm going to have to get a lot more interested in Legos.

This time around, we got to see some 4D images, and they were really cool. The ultrasound tech was really nice. The baby is measuring about 5 days ahead of the current due date of June 1, but they don't change due dates, so it'll stay the same. He currently weighs 11 oz., and I have plenty of amniotic fluid. My placenta is in the front this time, which explains why movements seem a little more muffled than they did with Seth. He looks a lot like Seth did, but his forehead is shaped a little differently, not quite as prominent.

We got to see him moving his mouth and waving his little fists. It was so good to see him again and get better acquainted! I wish I had an at home ultrasound machine that I could use every day for a little look see. Wouldn't that be cool?

And without further ado, I introduce you to the newest member of this family. Isn't he cute?

You are so blessed. God gives what is good. And hey, you might have a third baby one day. Only God knows.

I do have two friends who both had seven boys in a row, so if you are holding out for a girl (lol, neither of my friends were), you might have a few more babies :-))

At least knowing the gender narrows down the discussions over names :-)

I am so pleased for you.

Many congratulations! The photo of your baby boy is breathtaking to say the least. He is beautiful!

Aww! He IS a cutie, not that there was ever any doubt. :) Congratulations, Ellen, and we continue to pray for a healthy pregnancy and delivery (when the time comes.)

HI Ellen(we met at Wendy's B-day party:)) I have to say that I never saw myself as mom to boys.With second I knew from the begining that he was a boy.....and did have some feelings of dissapointment(not proud of it, but it's true).But now that our boys our 2 and 4,I am finding out that it's the best to have 2 of the same gender kids close in age(for their benefit). You will see it will be fun:)
