Baby's First Picture

Life's been chugging along here in Maryland.  I keep thinking about blogging, even take pictures specifically for posts, but just haven't felt like it.  Sorry!  I have an extra special picture to share and hopefully it will get the blog juices productivly flowing again.

Monday all of us (Elijah and Sam included) headed down to Maternal Fetal Medicine for my 20 wk ultrasound.  With the move (twice) I didn't get to an OB early on in my pregnancy and this was the first ultrasound I've had of our little bambino.  Also because of some family history I get to have extra detailed ultasounds which was really interesting for Josh and I but the boys soon tired of the black blob on the screen.  I think their questions, particularly Elijah's, started to annoy the technician  Well, everything checked out, it's officially a healthly looking baby with a darn cute profile that they guessed to weigh about 12 oz. 

Even more interesting... it's a baby BOY!  Yep, number three. It still hits me sometimes that I'm going to be the mother of THREE boys and stops my heart for a moment.  Oh MY!  Thank goodness for the gospel and Josh-- I know I don't have to handle it all alone.

Now I get to start planning the nursery.  I've started drooling over fabric (trying to ignore all the adorable girl prints) and plotting a quilt and colors.  There's a lot to be done before this bambino makes his debue.

YEAH! I have to admit, I was hoping for a girl for baby Lucy to play with, but Kendell does so well with all her boy cousins, that I am sure that Lucy will make due just fine. I guess my girls will just have to continue being the strong family princesses! I am excited for you. I Can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks!

It must be a Strong thing for the boys. Ben and Abbey have three boys, Nathan and I have three boys, and now you will have three also. It's not bad. Its fun. You're just a bit out numbered. But think of all the boys you have to protect you now.

I am happy to see my next nephew. I love his tiny nose. You are a special mommy given the opportunity to raise sons. Maybe later a daughter will come to you. I hope so for they are also a joy. Meanwhile enjoy preparing for this little guy. Enjoy your trip home. Love you.
