Oh yeah..it's a boy!

I think most people have a preference to the gender of their first born. Of course, the main hope is to have a healthy baby no matter the gender. Scott and I both wanted a boy. I always wanted an older brother and Scott loves having his older brother. Then if we have a girl we have a body guard and spy built in. Girls scare me..really they do. All that Princess talk and major attitude..awwhh..believe me I know. I love being a girl..makeup, clothes, design..PINK!!! It is all great but I think being a boy mom would be the best ever. Not so much drama involved:) So, we went into out first ultrasound appointment hoping for a boy. I was a little over 15 weeks and the tech said it might be a little too soon to tell..oh wait..nevermind..it's a boy! Now, Scott was not in the room at this point I wanted to scream and be all giddy about it but it was just me and the tech. That kind of ruined the moment. I wish I would have asked her to wait to tell the both of us. Once Scott got into the room I was so excited to tell him. He asked if it was too early as well and the tech asked if I wanted to tell him. So, I said "Do you really want to know". He replied,"of course". "It's a boy!" I exclaimed. We saw the first pictures of our new little miracle. It was so amazing. We saw him cough. He even covered his mouth while doing it..Scott said he already has manners. I found this amazing little poem that I framed with the little ones ultrasound picture under it:
We treasure this first glimpse of you; the amazing miracle of life is true.
So small, yet awesome in what you'll become, grow strong and healthy our little one.
We are here, dreaming and waiting, wishing, preparing and anticipating. Each day a step closer to life anew, each day a touch closer to holding you
