It’s a boy!

Boy Parts

Although Tim & I are a little sheepish that we were so convinced it was a girl (and now have to work double-time to make up for all the “she-ing” we did to poor little Blueberry), we admit we were totally wrong. During the ultrasound, he would NOT cooperate! He was crossing his legs, his umbilical cord was in the way, he was wiggling all around… finally, the technician got a shot of his little rump from the underside and he kicked his legs out wide. “Um, I can tell you what it is,” she said. Our eyes were still adjusting to figuring out what the constantly changing images on the screen were and then suddenly it was very clear. Almost like he was saying, “Hey, goofballs, I’m a BOY!”

I think it took both of us a couple of minutes to absorb such a rapid change in thought process, but it was so much fun to see him and feel a little bit closer to him that we rolled right along. Here are a couple of other fun shots from the rest of the session…

Baby Leg

We both like this one because it looks like he’s already practicing his sportbike riding form! He has long, strong legs and big feet just like his parents.

And this is the only print out we got of his face. We call it “scary baby face” but you canBaby Face see his eye sockets and his chin and cheeks. His forehead looks so huge because of the angle the scan was taken from. Hopefully his actual forehead will be somewhere between the size of mom’s and dad’s. πŸ™‚ There was a really cute shot of a close-up of his little nose and his lips — it looked like he was pressing his face up against my belly. That was the only one that made me cry a little. But I think he moved before the tech could lock in on it.

There’s a small thing with one of his pinky bones that hasn’t ossified as fast as the other bones, but hopefully that will take care of itself before he’s born (if not, he’ll still have ten toes and fingers, though!). Other than that, everything else is growing well, looks great, and he is obviously a healthy, very active baby. Next time we see him, it will be his birth day!

P.S. I forgot to mention earlier that my sister Victoria was the winner of the drawing for the coveted post-parents phone call. Β  She’s thrilled to be an aunt and even more thrilled that she can really start shopping now. πŸ˜‰

    Okay Victoria, but bet I beat you with my little Halloween outfit! Saved some Alex clothes, maybe he’d like to pick something that was his for his first real cousin to wear!

    LOL @ Victoria… I knew it wouldn’t take you any time to get started. Just remember not to buy super-tiny newborn stuff because this is not going to be a super-tiny baby for long (if at all).

    Marge, we can start really yard sale shopping now!

    I strolled through the baby section of a store yesterday. Boy stuff is so much cooler than when Mark and Matt were little. Sounds like he may be a soccer player the way he likes to kick already. Victoria will love to show him some soccer moves. I’m still working on the being called “Grandma” thing.

    I’m still adjusting to not getting to buy all those cute little girl dresses & hair bows. Tim, of course, is coming along much better because now he can get “cool, tactical stuff” for Blueberry instead.

    You don’t have to be “Grandma”… here’s a site with alternatives:
