You see... after church, Dave and I went to a little doctor's appointment for the 20 week ultrasound.
While we were there, we saw our little one's hands, and fingers, and legs and toes. We saw the heartbeat, brain, head, face, chest, and lots of great movement. We even got to see baby wave and suck on its tiny fingers!
There was one more thing we saw - the gender!
To make things more exciting when revealing the news to friends and family, my mom baked us a "gender surprise" cake - complete with special colored icing in the middle. As we cut the cake, the sex of our baby was revealed! This was so much fun, that I just had to repeat it this morning with my Bible Study group.
My mom was gracious enough to bake cupcakes this time, with colorful filling as the surprise.
And now that all of our local loved ones have heard the news, it's time to share with you!
It's a BOY!!!!
We are so thrilled to announce that a little boy will be joining our family in March. Now I don't have to return those darling Gymboree outfits I splurged on, and I can start knitting little boy things in earnest.
We couldn't be more excited! We hope you enjoyed the surprise.
