Finding Out

Today we went to the doctor to get our 2nd ultrasound.  We were so excited to see our little baby again and to make sure it was growing healthy and strong.  We were also feeling great anticipation as we waited to find out if it is a boy or girl.
We had to wait longer than we ever had before during this visit but we were both so excited that it didn't really matter.  The first thing we saw was the sweet beating heart with all four chambers pumping away.  Then we saw the long legs and then wait what's that?  Yes a baby boy!  Barry videoed us finding out and then seeing his sweet little face and hands.  We are so excited!
We were on cloud nine the rest of the day.  We just couldn't stop laughing, smiling, and crying for joy.  My friend Ali sent me a text that said "Thinking about you three today! Today you will be able to picture the rest of your lives. So amazing!"  She was so right. 
I couldn't stop thinking about holding him in my arms.  Watching him sleep.  Dressing him in his jacket to go jump in leaves.  Watching him and Barry chase each other in the house and in the yard.  Buying him his first baseball.  Watching him play sports, maybe an instrument too?  I love this little boy so much it makes my eyes water every time I think of a new baby boy scenario with him.  Our future will forever change for the better come April.  Barry and I would have loved a little girl to pieces but are so thankful for a little boy.  :) Barry is going to be the most amazing father.
What an amazing blessing,  I can't stop being thankful.
