Boy oh Boy

You heard that right... we are going to be all BOY at our house for a while longer! To tell you the truth, I'm ecstatic. I think in my heart I knew he was a boy all along and of course Brandon never wavered!

Brandon and I got to the doctors office and settled in for a long wait. I love my doctor, but waiting for an hour just to get back to a room kills me every time! I'm just thankful I don't have a little one running around, waiting with me. We finally got back to the ultrasound room and did some more waiting. I don't know if I have ever seen Brandon so giddy. He was bouncing off the walls and being so silly. I was feeling the same way, but was trying to keep it together. The U/S Tech we work with is amazing. He is so good at making us feel comfortable and let us know every little thing he was doing.

My heart melted when we got the first glance of baby boy.
Baby Boy is upside down! Legs in the air and head on the bottom. 

We got to see every beautiful, wonderful, perfect part of our little guy. His tiny heart pumping, his sweet legs kicking, his little brain... what a miracle! 

Baby boy is already just like his daddy. Throughout the entire U/S he wouldn't stop moving! It's no wonder I'm still tired as all get out, his little legs and arms were in constant motion. 
Arm over his head. Dramatic already :)

We couldn't be more excited or happy. All of baby boy is healthy (and looked pretty happy too!). He is measuring right on track and we are still expecting a sweet, Valentines Day baby. The only question left is how do I speed up time?!

17 Weeks and Wives Tales

17 weeks, that is 119 days. This baby has been in my belly for 119 days... can I tell you how CRAZY that is!

As of today, Baby Prince is the size of an onion, over 5 inches and almost 6 ounces of perfection. He/she is a a moving machine. Though I have only felt little flutters every now and again, the doctor has told me (more than once) that our belly bean refuses to sit still! I can't wait until I can really feel solid baby kicks! And of course until Brandon can feel them too!

Thursday is going to be such a great day! We have our second ultrasound on Thursday to get a good look at our baby. And if all goes well, and baby cooperates we should be able to get a gender reveal! Brandon has been so funny when it comes to the baby. He firmly believes that baby is a boy. I, on the other hand, have been flip flopping every other week :) For fun we have been looking up old wives tales to see what they say... here's the verdict:

We would LOVE to hear your predictions either here or on Facebook and stay tuned for our reveal :)
