My Birthday Present

Our son gave us an early small birthday present last night. Very small, but it's definitely there! We are excited to share that we are going to be having a little boy! Here's proof:

The arrows don't lie!

Finding out was what I really wanted most for a birthday present. Since ultrasounds here are first come, first served, we could have been waiting anywhere from 5 minutes to 3 hours for an appointment. I didn't want to spend my birthday in a waiting room, so I convinced Tom that Children's Day (Sept. 10) would be a better time to wait, and I got it last night.

This is one of those cool 4-D ultrasound pics!

For those of you who have been keeping tabs- I knew it all along! I was on cloud nine all night. When I woke up this morning, my first thought was, "We're having a boy!" and my second thought was "I'm 30."

It's been a great day so far though, and I'm so happy to be wearing my new blue birthday shirt over my 19 week preggo belly!
