the big ultrasound

Tuesday was the big, long awaited ultrasound when we got to find out BabyTwo's gender.
BabyTwo is probably our last child, and there was no denying which direction my hopes were in. Here's a hint: we had a lovely girl name picked out, and not even a list of boy names under consideration. I may or may not have already picked out a variety of pink and purple nursery items I wanted.

Fast forward to the appointment. The technician puts the sensor to my belly and within literally seconds of the image popping up I had an excellent full frontal view and my answer. What are the odds? I mean, what a coincidence that the technician just happened to set the sensor in just the right place, with the baby moving just the right way, that it was plain to see immediately. I waited a few seconds to see if the technician would say anything before I said, "I see boy parts there don't I?" She hadn't even been looking there yet, but indeed it was a baby boy! I then got to enjoy an extensive viewing of my littlest -- ultrasounds are so cool!

So I started my life in all female household and now it will be me and my boys! I can continue saying, "How are my boys?" when I get home. And I get to pull out all Little Guy's old blue stuff and imagine another darling little baby boy filling it.

I have made Little Guy take an oath to give me granddaughters and plan to make BabyTwo do the same. So the awesome girl name and the dreams of shopping for pink and purple are not entirely gone ;)

Here is my handsome littlest guy...
