It's a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We can't believe it, but it's true! We so thought it was a girl, but it's a little boy!!!! We're thrilled.
Yesterday, we went for our "big ultrasound" at 18 weeks and they did a scan of everything on our little baby! The tech saw right away that it was a boy. So cute! You could see his spinal column and his other bones, head, legs, arms, kidneys, heart, stomach, you name it! So cute. He was sleeping during the ultrasound and the tech kept poking him to wake up and turn over so that she could get a view of his heart from a different angle. He didn't respond to her poking, but then decided to move on his own once she finally stopped. I liked that attitude. :) He's such a little cutie! He's weighing a half-pound at this point and everything so far looks good! The tech said that he's very photogenic and so she's sending off his pictures to the AIUM, an ultrasound association. Photo shoot! Do we get royalties? :)

I've attached a couple of pictures from the ultrasound as well as a belly pic from yesterday. Excuse the disheveled look, I have a pretty nasty head cold.
