it's a. . .

My mommy-intuition was right again!  I don't know how long I can keep my record going, but so far, I'm 4 for 4.  Each pregnancy my feeling about the baby's gender has been right.
First and foremost, we are grateful to be having a healthy baby.  To be having a baby is such a blessing.  It was great to see his cute Little self.  We could literally count his five fingers. As usual he was highly active and was tossing and turning, he kept kicking the Doppler every time it pushed on his feet.
We are all thrilled to be having a boy.  Joe and Joseph are beside themselves with joy.  I keep reminding them they both squealed like girls when they found out.  {I'll probably keep reminding them for quite some time!}  We asked the radiology tech to not tell us while we were in the office.  Joe and I decided it would be more comfortable to find out by ourselves, so she typed it on a picture for us.  Joe opened the envelope and read, "It's a boy!"
Now we are more anxious than ever for him to get here, so we can hold him and kiss on him.  Of course, we want him to keep growing safe and sound in my belly.  It'll only be another18 weeks, {sigh!} I'm thankful to have the opportunity to mother another little boy. Boys are really fun and so sweet.
He was big for his gestational age, not by an enormous amount but by about 9 ounces.  Maybe I'm in for another 9 pounder!?  The ultrasound measurements estimated my due date a week earlier so perhaps we'll have a Thanksgiving baby.
Though I still affectionately call him Little and may for some time, we decided it wasn't much of a proper name.  We're naming him Brady!
