More Baby News

I fully believe that "it's not what you know, it's who you know," because although I'm only 16 weeks pregnant and should have had to wait another month for an ultrasound to find out if we're having a boy or girl, I know this awesome person named Hillary.

Hillary works at a medical clinic and happens to be really good friends with an amazing ultrasound tech, so she invited me to come in for a sneak-peek. The only other ultrasound we've had was at 9 weeks (the picture I included in the last post), and there was a world of difference in the baby we saw. This time it was moving all over the place and looked like a baby rather than a peanut!

It was through that movement that we were able to get several shots of good evidence that it's a boy. It was at that point that Matt leaned over to me and, in a very serious voice, said, "That's awesome." He's already planning the first tool set he's going to buy him :)

We're both extremely excited. In fact, I've noticed that neither of us have really stopped smiling since we found out yesterday. I'll have to put aside all of my ideas for little girl dresses and bows for now--instead I'll just have to be on the lookout for more "masculine" baby craft projects!
