A Boy! A Boy!

Did you hear?  Its a boy!  Has anyone ever found out the gender of their baby at 11 weeks, 6 days?  We thought finding out about Lincoln at 13 weeks was a record!  I guess my boys just like to show that their boys really early!

On Thursday, we were in for a routine ultrasound to check for genetic disorders, mainly downs syndrome, and within the first 2 minutes of the ultrasound, I could totally tell :)  How can it not be so obvious when he's kicking his legs apart for the camera?  Still, I waited till the end of the 30 minute ultrasound (he kept wanting to lay upside-down and wouldn't flip over) to ask the doctor if she also agreed on those early boy indications, and its a pretty solid consensus.  Another BOY!

I'm thrilled for Lincoln to have a buddy!  When I called to tell my family, my dad said how he can just imagine those two boys running around the house with squirt guns at eachother.  Its true, I can already see those two rugrats doing everything together--helping eachother reach the cookies, one being the lookout while the other climbs out the window, playing in sports together, dating the same girls, going on overlapping missions, etc.  I'm going to be super soccer mom, that's for sure.  So so excited.  And so happy to see a healthy, happy squirmy little guy doing well.  I love you, little one!

Whoa! That is early! Well way to get your son a little buddy to play with!

I am jealous! I am dying to know...but we haven't even heard the heart beat yet. Pregnancy isn't easy for the impatient. :).

Congrats!!

Congratulations! We love boys! Even with the age gap between our boys, they love playing with each other! I know yours will, too! Keep feeling better and you look great - no weight gain at 13 weeks does rock!
