The wait is finally over. We had the ultrasound today to determine the sex of the baby and it's gonna be a boy!
We are psyched.
More importantly, everything looked healthy as can be from the ultrasound. He is measuring a day big, 10 ounces total, and is the size of a mango. The doctor said that he appears to have rather long arms and legs... probably not surprising to anyone.
Anyway, we couldn't be happier. Prior to having Anna, I was rather open and honest about wanting to have a boy. I even went as far as telling people that we'd have as many kids as it took until we got a boy... an idea which Angie never seemed too keen on for some reason :)
Needless to say, we had a baby girl and immediately my want and desire to have a boy went away. Anna was (and is) everything that I ever imagined a child could be... and much more.
So, when we found out Angie was pregnant this time, I wasn't hell bent on wanting a baby boy. And, sure enough that's what we're going to get. In just a few hours since finding out though, that want and desire to have a son has definitely returned. I really can't wait.
Excuse me while I go install a basketball hoop out front.
