Well we found out on Monday that the little "critter" in my tummy is going to be a BOY!!! We are super excited!!! I was pretty sure that it was going to be a boy - just that "mom" feeling, you know. But that morning when we woke up I started having doubts, but in the end I was right and now get back massages for a week straight from the bet Justin and I made. :) He was positive that it was a girl and was completely shocked when they said it was a boy!!! Brianna was really funny - when the tech first said it was a boy she yells in the room, "NO, I don't like BOYS!!!". But when we got out to the truck afterwards she said, "I'm SO EXCITED for my baby brother!!!". So fun - I'm so happy to get one of each since we're only planning on having two kiddos! YAY!!!

Nine weeks old.

The "skeletor" picture. :)
Little toes - so sweet!
He's pretty handsome if I do say so myself!
He was so curled up during the ultrasound that the tech had a hard time getting that good "money shot". She was positive that it was a boy, but Justin and I wanted to be sure so she kept trying to get get a better angle for us - which wasn't working. But even though we didn't get that perfect angle (so there was no doubts in our minds), there were definitely some "family jewels" between those legs. LOL!
The "manhood" shot.
Face and arms.
Oh I'm already so in love with this little boy!!! Now to the finding him a name - oh it's going to be so hard, so keep your fingers crossed that we find one before he's born. We had such a hard time deciding on Brianna, or should I say compromising! :) I know it's going to be even harder finding a boy name that we agree on. Oddly, I don't even have a boy name that I'M even really liking right now, which is weird. All the ones that I thought I liked just don't seem right now that I'm preggo. I guess the same thing happened with Bri too, the girl names that I'd had picked out forever I didn't like at all as soon as we found out she was a girl. (But hey I guess there's a reason for that cause Brianna turned out to be perfect - none of those other names would have worked for her). So I guess we'll all just have to wait and see who this little guy is going to be! :)
