The verdict is in....It's a.....BOY!!!!!!!! Today was a very exciting day for all three of us. Ashley and Mark were both there to see our precious baby boy. As soon as the technician said the word BOY, Mark jumped up out of his chair, spilling his cup of water that he somehow forgot existed. It was truely priceless to see the look of pure happiness in his eyes and all over his face. They say a pregnant woman has a glow, well Mark had it today! It is so comforting to know that I have someone right by my side to share this amazing step with. And of course Ashley is a constant reminder of all the joy yet to come. She is so sweet to this brother she has never met before. She kisses my belly and says "I love you baby!" I am so glad she was there to see him today. Our baby boy measured in at 21 weeks, which is about 3 days ahead of schedule. He is very healthy and normal, which is the best news yet. I feel like I can relax, now that I know everything is alright and who this thumper is growing inside of me. When unanswered, these questions seem to plague you 24 hours a day, making it difficult to think of anything else! Now we know, IT'S A BOY!!!!! The picture above is his from the back, you can see his bent arm and a small part of his bent knee!
