It's a BROTHER for Emersyn!!!!



(Proof that he's a boy!!)

Can you believe it?? I'm going to be a little boy's mother!!!!! It's still all surreal...in fact, this pregnancy in general is pretty surreal. :)

At 4:30 we headed into our ultrasound appointment. Emersyn sat in the lobby with Brett's mom, my brother and sister-in-law who were anxiously awaiting the good news. The tech asked right away if we wanted to find out the gender and we said absolutely. She got all the goop on me, started rubbing her magic ultrasound wand around and pretty soon we saw it. Brett said, "well that looks like a boy to me" and sure enough, there were no lady parts to be found like in Emersyn's ultrasound. To be honest, I was shocked. Not because I didn't want a boy, but just because I wasn't expecting one!

He was pretty cooperative during the ultrasound, except that he kept putting his little arm over his chest and hiding his heart from the tech who was trying to make sure there were four chambers (and there were).

I'm really really excited. We have some work cut out for us. We will be painting the nursery, shopping for nursery bedding, selling Emersyn's nursery bedding, shopping for big girl bedding, panting Emersyn's room, etc......it's going to be a lot of fun and quite the adventure.

Everett David, your daddy, sister and I love you more then you can even imagine. We can't wait to meet you!!!!

It will be so fun, you get to prepare for a boy!!! They're pretty darn sweet, if I do say so myself. Now, be prepared for all of the "Ohhhh, one of each, you're so lucky!" comments. ;)

You're going to have so much fun being a mommy to a little boy! They are so cuddly and sweet, and it'll be sooo cute to see Emersyn cuddle with her little baby brother! Wishing you well on a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby :)
