We are proud to announce...

It's a BOY!

The ultrasound went very well on Friday morning and the first image that appeared on screen was a baby with its legs spread wide, and thus, our baby boy was immediately discovered. :) Not only was that prayer answered (that we would be able to see the sex), but more importantly, all the organs look healthy and well-formed. I loved seeing his face, beating heart and aorta, diaphragm, bladder already collecting urine, and a detailed view of his spine.

The entire time he was looking right at us :) We were able to watch him open his mouth, and also practice sucking. He seems like a chill little dude; his pose was laidback with an arm behind his head and legs spread. I guess right now, my womb is a comfy hammock for him.

I had really been looking forward to looking at 3D pictures, but because he kept looking straight at us, and not giving us a profile view, we were unable to get 3D ones. But, I think this was a blessing in disguise, because the sonographer offered us a visit in another week for them to practice their 3D skills. So, we get a free hour extra viewing our little boy :)

We are so blessed to have a healthy little boy on the way. We don't deserve such a great gift! With that said, the name we have chosen for him is Caleb. It means "faithful," and indeed God has been faithful to us unconditionally.

"Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him." ~Psalm 127:3

AWWWWWW. I just bought baby boy clothes for another friend's shower yesterday, and I have to say, I've always thought baby boys and boy clothes are way cuter. Can't wait to shop for you guys :) Praise God he's healthy too. That's the best part of all.

And love the name :)
