I got Sadie out of school early yesterday. She, Claire & I met Dylan at the doctor's office for my 20 week ultrasound. I'm at the halfway mark! Woohoo! Anyway, it was so special to have my family there. I loved that the girls were old enough to be a part of it.
The technician immediately started taking a look at the baby's gender. It did not look like what we were used to seeing. Dylan & I gave each other a look. But then the technician told us that the umbilical cord was in the way. She thought she was seeing a boy though.
We continued to look around and I was so very happy to see that all was developing well & that the baby is healthy. We were then able to see that yes, we are definitely having a boy!
The whole boy thing is very exciting but also very strange. This is all new territory for us, but I think that as soon as I get used to the idea, I'll be ready to jump in.
I was just so surprised at how my heart melted at the sight of his adorable little head & profile. Because I had to wait longer for this pregnancy & this baby, everything is definitely felt deeper. I'm so thankful for the blessing of this experience & I can't believe I'm going to have a son!
We have a series of ultrasound photos where his hand is on his forehead & then it's tucked behind his head. I'm so curious to see if he will sleep that way once he's born. He's just the cutest. :)
