 It's a...

Dear little one in the womb, Today I got a peak at you. For about an hour I watched as the ultra sound technician took all of the measurements, checked on all of your major organs, and made sure all was well. And baby, as at peace as I was throughout the day, I still held my breath a little and was silently uttering prayers through out this process. Prayers that you would be healthy. Prayers that you were growing as you should. My heart feels like it could just about burst with happiness! You are healthy, a great size, active, and a boy. Another boy! I have to be honest and say that our minds were geared a bit towards entertaining thoughts of what life would be like if we added a daughter to the mix here. I would be lying if I said there weren't a few moments of adjusting my thinking to the fact that we will not know what that is like. Oh - but in the next few seconds I watched your hands go to your face and you tried to suck your thumb. You turned, as if to face us. You were moving all around and I just grinned, and grinned, and couldn't stop grinning. Wow do we love you. This part always has surprised me a bit. Just how much you can love some one you've never seen face to face. I truly can hardly wait to watch you with your brothers. Yes, I get a touch tired even just thinking about it. Raising four boys. Oh my oh my! :) But what an amazing privilege! Praising God for you, our baby boy, Love mommy

I KNEW IT.

Sorry, I just did :)

You're going to be the world's expert on boys, that's for sure.

Unlike me, who just now was so distracted by this post that I almost allowed Asher to walk into an open and very hot oven door...sheesh!

Lena said...

Yeah me too- sometimes I cannot picture certain people with a girl or vise-versa. You have always struck me as the type of mom with lots of boys. Congrats on the awesome news!

When we found out we were having our third boy my aunt wrote me a note that made me feel so honored. She said that our world needs more Godly men and it takes special parents who can raise them in that way. I know that you and Dave are a couple who will raise all of your boys to become men of God. Congratulations!

So happy for you! It will be nice to not have to adjust saying, "Boys time to go" and all those things. Can't wait to meet him. Today the name Andrew came to me. Just a thought! ;)

As a mum of four boys I can so understand how you are feeling.
When you have that scan there is hoping, and then when you hear it's another boy you feel " I knew it but I was hoping to know what the other side was like". Then you fall in love. This precious little person is so loved and you wouldn't change it for anything.
You'll be the queen they all dot on every day. I went through a groeving process of sorts wondering what I was going to miss out on but now I know how cherished and special my family is.
Congratulations it's wonderful news

Hooray! Good to see everything going so well!
And it probably helps that you wont have to buy everything all over again in pink!

BaronessBlack said...

Ha! Guy (2) was sat on my lap looking at your ultrasound picture while I was typing that last comment. He pointed at it, grinned, and said' 'dino-saur!'

Here's to little boys!

Lois Lane II said...

Oh, wow!!! Congrats! That is wonderful!

sara said...

yea!!! Congrats!!!

I am so amazed when I see sonogram pictures these days....how you can see so much detail!! When I had mine, the technician had to sit there and point out what everything was and "sometimes" you could really see it!!! That is so cool!

Lisa said...

my goodness, I think there is something in the blogland water - baby boys are everywhere!!!!

Congrats - I am thrilled for you!!!
With love.....
