Healthy Baby

Happy and Healthy...that's all we want, right? First and foremost, that's what our baby is. The official word isn't in yet (the tech really isn't supposed to tell us if anything is wrong or not), but unofficially, he is healthy and active.

Yep, that's right! I said HE! We are having our third BOY! We are over the moon happy and can't wait to see him!
The tech told us when we got in there that she would do the measurements first, then take a peek between the legs. Austin was all into seeing the baby and really thought it was pretty cool. Colten was a handful, to say the least. He just wanted to sit with Mommy and there just wasn't anyway for that to happen. We got to see the 4 chambers of the heart, the 3 vessel cord, the stomach, leg bones and brain. He hid a bit when she was trying to take a look at his face (just like Colten did!), but it was pretty neat when we finally did see it. Everything is perfect (you know, unofficially) and he is already loved so much!
When the time came to see if it was a boy or a girl, I knew immediately. There's no mistaking it. LOL He wasn't shy at all (typical, right?).
In fact, as if he wanted us to be absolutely sure, he poked it out a little bit more. It was pretty funny...we have it on video as well. If I can get it uploaded, I will, but it's already on DVD, so I'm not sure it's even possible. Anyway, it's going to be fun to have another boy, and I think Brian's a little relieved that we won't be spending a small fortune on clothes for a little girl. :-)
Austin was a little disappointed. He really had his heart set on having a sister. He was already coming around to the idea of another little brother by the time we left and is ok with it. I really think he wanted to see how a sister would be since he already has a brother. It will be fun though...they're going to have a blast with each other!

So, there you have it. Our third boy. God knew what he was we just have to wait for his appearance so we can finally see him!
