It's a BOY!!!

The great question has been answered: we are having a boy!

We went to have the sonogram this morning at the University Medical Center. The sonogram took about 30 minutes and was amazing to watch! Here are some pictures of our baby boy:

If you look closely, you will see an arrow on the picture. The small circle being pointed at is our baby boy's scrotum. (The only time in his life where pictures of his "stuff" are okay!)

This picture shows his feet (at the top they are pointing in opposite directions)!

This is a picture of his skull. You can see his eye sockets and nose. If you look closely, you can see his hand to the upper-left of his head.

Technology is amazing! This is the face of our baby boy! You can see his ear, nose, mouth, and eyes. Looks good-looking to me!

The sonographer said everything looked great. The body was forming normally and he is a good size for this stage (14 ounces)! Holly is doing well, still growing daily! I will post a picture of her soon! We continue to plead for your prayers for Holly, the baby, and our future as graduation approaches. Take care!
