Early this week Jon and I were scheduled for our second ultrasound to hopefully find out Baby C’s gender. We were nervous baby might not cooperate as the doctor wanted us to wait until 19 weeks when everything was more developed, but we REALLY wanted to know before Christmas! Well, Baby C must have known that mommy was anxious to find out because this little baby I’m carrying in my belly showed us loud and clear that it is a…….BOY!!!! The entire time the tech was performing the ultrasound Baby C was moving, kicking and waving at us, clearly as excited to see us as we were to see him!
I have felt all along that Baby C was indeed a bouncing baby boy, but man oh man I was so happy to have it finally confirmed! The weeks leading up to our ultrasound were full of anticipation of finally knowing what I was carrying, but within the last week this momma started to have her doubts that baby would cooperate. The night before Jon and I even had a stern talking to with Baby C in hopes that he/she would listen and relieve us of being so anxious to know. We are blessed to say that the doctor was very impressed with baby boy’s progress and everything looked healthy for our little man.
Now we know that so many of you knew of our appointment and have been anxious yourselves to know Baby C’s official gender. Jon and I think it is awesome that so many people love our kiddo already, but we were most thankful that we were able to surprise our families during this week with a Christmas surprise from Baby C. You see, Jon and I wanted to surprise our families in a different way than just telling everyone in person, as so much of our pregnancy news is delivered in just that way. We bought two individual outfits, wrapped them up and two very special people, my mom and Jon’s grandma, got the chance to open them as the last of their Christmas presents this year. At my family’s Christmas celebration, I was so anxious to get that present into my mom’s hands that I enlisted my sister Natalie to help us rush through everyone else’s presents!
Jon and I are excited to start thinking of names for our little guy and to get our house ready for his arrival! And there’s no way I could end this post without a couple of pictures, now could I?
