That’s right.  We’re having a boy!  He is as healthy as can be and is measuring a week ahead of schedule.  I always knew that any child of Christopher’s would be a big baby.  I just hope he doesn’t end up being a 9 or 10 pounder like my nephew!  The nurse who did my ultrasound estimated that the baby weights about 1.2 lbs already.  I am 21.3 weeks now and feeling the baby move every day.  It’s such a neat feeling, and I love it when Christopher can feel it, too.  On Father’s Day I prayed that the baby would be very active because Christopher hadn’t felt him in a while and I thought it’d be a great Father’s Day present.  I’m not sure that the baby ever stopped moving that day!  It was so fun feeling him flip around and kick and do whatever else he was doing in there.  Yesterday before the ultrasound I felt some pretty strong movement on my left side just beside my belly button and in the ultrasound I found out that that is exactly where the little guy’s feet were.  It was another amazing experience getting to see our baby and hearing his heart beat.  I can’t wait to meet him.

Our families are so excited about this little boy, especially my grandfather, dad and dad’s fiancee, Lou Ann.  Everyone is talking about how they are going to spoil him and what they are going to buy.  As soon as my sister found out the news last night she went to Wal-Mart and bought some baby things.  I have yet to buy anything, but I bet I’ll cave in soon.  I’m so happy to finally know for sure that we are having a boy (I’ve always suspected it!).  We thank God for this blessing every day, and I hope He’ll let my mom know that she’s going to have another grandson.
