Can you guess what we're having?!


We were lucky enough to go in for an early ultrasound at our beloved Dr. Judd's office in Provo last week.  I was about 95% sure it would be a girl.  I think my entire family was about that sure we were having a girl as well.  In fact, I'm pretty sure my mom had already bought a couple of girl items.  But as you can see, we were definitely wrong!  There's no doubt about it...our little baby is a boy!  Nathan was very proud.  :)  I'm super excited.  Being with my nephew Jake all week is making me even more excited for a little boy.  And it'll be so fun to have Jake and our boy so close in age!  So now the fun begins.  Picking a name, buying boys stuff...I'm so excited to start!  I was totally set with girl names so now I've got a little bit of a challenge ahead of me...especially since Nathan and I seem to be butting heads on the name issue.  Oh well...I guess we've still got 5 more months to figure it out.  

As for other news...we've been having a blast here in Utah since last Wednesday.  Nathan's sister Erin got married on Friday so we had a fun and busy few days with his family...and now we're just chillin with my family at Kristie's house.  I'm already getting weepy when I think about leaving on Friday!  It's so great to be with family!  I'll post some pictures of the wedding and such as soon as I get my hands on some!

CONGRATS!!!!!! I could not be more excited for you guys! A little boy - that's perfect! Funny thing is... for some reason I had thought that you already knew what you were having and that it was a girl - weird. The picture is pretty clear. :) Anyway, I loved the baby name book called "The Baby Name Wizard". You should check it out. And if you find extra time while you are here in Utah (ha ha) you should definitely drop by to say hi and see my baby boy. Oh - I am SO excited for you!!! CONGRATS!!!!!

Yipee! Jess I am so excited for you guys! I've heard it seems much more real when you know what you are having. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy being in Utah with family...I am sooooo jealous!

Yay for boys! They are so fun, but just to warn you (and Kristie) come toddler years, they are exhausting! I still prefer them over girls though (I'll probably say that until I actually have a girl). Cant wait to see the little guy in a few months!

Hurray! Congrats, he is definetly a boy. Looking at your ultrasound picture comforts me a little. I wasn't too sure about our ultrasound tech, but our baby didn't have one of those, so I guess he was right and she is a girl. As soon as our children are born, I am going to start planning the wedding :) j/k, but that would be cool though. It was so great seeing you and Nate, even if we wished it were longer. You guys are the bomb.com and we love you tons. Enjoy your time in Utah and tell the Family "hallo".

Congratulations! Jake and your baby are going to be such cute little cousins! I'm 95% certain I'm having a girl, so I'll probably be having a boy around the same time as you!

Congratulations on the boy! We're so happy for you guys. Even though girls are way more fun to dress, it will be so great that he and Jake will have each other! We miss you guys. I'm glad you have been having a great break with your family.

I am just tickled for you! I am so glad everything is going well. Did you hear about Dr. Gordon?

Molly said...

So, last night I went out and bought mini-muffins, capri-suns, and go-gurts. They are very convenient, semi-healthy midnight (or two or four am) snacks. Just thought I'd share!
