Best Moment This Week: Getting to see our baby at the ultrasound today and finding out we're having a BOY!

As you see, we had our ultrasound today. The ultrasound tech did all of her measurements and stuff and then did the fun part of trying to figure out the gender. After a few 'suspicious' pictures, she determined that it is a BOY! He was pretty active again today (uh-oh) and she had some difficulty getting all her measurements, as well as getting a good view of 'the area'. As you will see in the pics below, it's pretty obvious that he's a he ;)

We're finalizing our name choice, so I'll be sharing it in a few days. I'll give you a sneak peek though - the initials will be WJW. I can't wait to get started on picking out the fabric/theme for the nursery and now I can go buy some of those really cute baby shoes I've been seeing!!!

Here are the suspicious pictures: 
He is face down, kinda kneeling - you can see his spine and the tops of his legs

This view he's facing to the right and it's kinda sliced through his hip area - you can see his thighs on the top and bottom of the picture

(If you aren't very good at seeing ultrasound pictures, just look near the word 'Boy' :))

And here's another picture, just 'cause he's so cute:
Hope everyone has a great week! & don't forget to check back in a few days when we announce his name!

Exciting news yet a little scary/challenging since we have no boys in our family, but I know with people like Bren/Whit, Jessica, and Miranda to name a few she will have a mound of wisdom to glean from, thanks to all! Oh, did I say we are excited?!
