Baby Update

Everything changes in the quickest of moments! At 17.5 weeks, we had a doctor’s appointment on Friday and this was the big one. The big gender reveal. I was surprisingly a little nervous going into it but Zion, of course, was my balancing act. πŸ™‚

They do all of the other looking at the ultrasounds stuff first and then she says – and you want to know the gender, right? “RIGHT! YES!” After a little looking she was pretty certain but waited for Dr. Christy to come in confirm. Yep – Dr. Christy agreed – we’re having a BOY!!! Needless to say – neither of us could stop smiling for a long time. It is so surreal to finally know a huge piece of who this little person is.

I keep thinking of all the pictures I have seen of Zion as a baby and then as a little boy – CUTE. I still try to wrap my mind around it – a son! A precious little boy. I am so thankful that God gives such perfect gifts and we are welcoming this boy into our hearts already.

Of course, in response to such news – the only appropriate thing to do is shop. Let me just say that boy clothes are coming up in the world. My mom and I made a stop by Target and picked out a few little things. It is so hard to believe that in five and a half months – there will be a real live baby to dress in them!

Let the shopping begin! LOL.
