Boy, oh, boy!

Today was attempt #2 at determining the sex of our unborn child. Fortunately, the baby was more cooperative than last time and gave us a nice view of the essential area. As the image was enlarged, David said, “Wait a minute. That’s a hot dog, not a hamburger!” (see post from July 9th for explanation). The ultrasound tech responded, “Well, at this point it’s more like a nugget!” Much to our surprise, we’re having a boy! Never mind my visions (O.K. just very vivid dreams) of having our first child be a girl. So much for my motherly intuition. We are really excited and can’t wait to welcome this special little one into our family.
Here is his adorable profile.
Thus begins a mother's right to show embarrassing pictures of her child. I introduce to you...the boy parts:)

Congrats on the boy Jenny. Mother's intuition didn't work well for me either. I have been 0 for 3. By the time Ella came I "felt" like I was having a boy so I knew it was going to be a girl. Although TJ remained in denial that she was a girl until she was born.

Oh yeah I forgot to tell you that I am friends with a girl named Emily Carpenter. I think you know her as Peterson. She was pleasantly suprised that the bakersfield family she knew was related to me more than by marriage to a cousin of a friend. I am going to send her blog site.

YAY a boy! I like boys, in fact that is why I married one. Oh this is great cause now we can have an arranged marriage with Savannah and the little guy. Well you better let me know when a baby shower is coming because I am going shopping today!

CONGRATULATIONS! Ryon and I are so happy for you both. We have loved every minute of Hoyt's first year, and having a boy has been so much fun. You can absolutely send your little one our way to ride horses, rope, etc. - Ryon would be in his glory!! :) We miss you guys!

Congrats! I always wanted a girl first (to be my baby sitter), but I love having Damon to take care of his sisters. Can't wait to see him!

Congratulations! so excited for you guys...I loved having a boy first. I think it's an even bigger deal for the dad. As Matt would say, "the pressure is off!"
You look fabulous and glad to hear things are going well for you.

Congrats on your little BOY! That is quite a shock. We are so thrilled for you. We know first hand the joy little boys can bring. He will be one handsome kid.
About mother's intuition, I have been wrong each time with my kids.

Oh my gosh Congrats!! That profile is adorable! And I think your intuition was on, I think it is supposed to be the opposite of what you dream it to be so, Ta Da!!
