It's a...


Yesterday I had my 20 week ultrasound. Eli's been wanting a boy so much that he didn't even want to talk about potential girl names. We have a name in mind that we are really excited about for a boy but nothing for a girl. The doctor went to examine the baby's pelvic area but the bottom was too far down and the feet were curled up under so we couldn't see anything. After looking at the head, the heart, and taking some measurements the baby had turned a bit, so Dr. Ed said, "It looks like this is a girl...no, maybe it's a boy..." Eli didn't need the added suspense! So we finished the other measurements and got the above adorable profile picture. By that time the baby had completly moved and we got a nice clear view. Even we could tell that it will be a son that we welcome in July!

My favorite moment of the ultrasound was when we could see a perfect profile: nose, mouth, little round head. And at the same time we could see his heart beating strong and steady.
For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:12-13


  1. Congratulations! Since you have name picked out will you be giving us the initials as a hint again? ;)

  2. Hooray! :-)
    Can't wait to meet him. (And to find out what his name is.) ;-)

  3. We will indeed do the initials hint again, but not until my due date comes and goes. It keeps those "over due" days interesting! :-)

  4. Congratulations! It will be so fun for Joshua to have a brother!

  5. Yay! :) That is a great ultrasound photo!
