Early stages of my baby bump...

Here are pictures from February and March to show my growing belly...

This one is with my sweet niece on her third birthday.  She stuck a balloon under her shirt and we both are here showing off our bellies!

I feel like I am showing much more now and will post more recent pictures soon.

We are having a BOY!

Today we had our first ultrasound at 20 weeks and found out we are having a BOY!  We both were surprised and very excited.  During the ultrasound we saw many angles and views of the brain, heart, arms, legs, mid-section and spine.   He was moving around ALOT therefore it was difficult to get certain shots.  The technician tried so hard to get a profile view for us -- she poked & pushed on my stomach to try to get him to move into a better position, but we never got to see one.  The picture below shows him with his fist up by his face and body to the left...

Below was one of the first images Todd & I saw of him (and was the moment we knew clearly "it" was now a "him") and we were having a boy!

After the doctor appointment, we went on a lunch date & shopped at Green Hills Mall to look for nursery ideas and boy outfits...after much debate between a stuffed lion or monkey, we came home with a lion.  And the only other purchase was a name book to help inspire us to find a boy name that we love!
