It's a....

BOY!!! We went to the doctor today for our 18 week checkup and got a detailed ultrasound. It was nerve-wracking as we had to wait more than an hour to get seen. We hadn't gotten to see our sweet baby since 8 weeks, so we were antsy to see what all was going on!

This was one of the best days of my life. We got to see baby's heart, all 4 chambers working away! Saw feet, hands, bones, blood pumping through the little body, and a little profile of the face. The doctor said everything looked great and healthy, and we were so thankful.

And it was pretty easy to tell right off the bat that this little person was a boy! Josh and I both thought it was going to be a boy, mostly just because there are so many boys in Josh's family. But even though that's what we expected, when the doctor said, "There's your son!" the tears started flowing (of course, they would be flowing for a girl too!). It was surreal and amazing to see this little life. I couldn't help but think about Psalm 139 and how true it is that God has indeed knit this little one together. Thank you Lord for this sweet gift!

Here are a few pics we got today of our little guy!
