It's a Boy!

We had our third ultrasound on Friday, at 21 weeks 5 days, and found out we are expecting a boy!! Now the real fun begins - we can work on finishing registries and finalizing baby showers :-).

We are so excited to be having a boy, and with our son spending regular time each day kicking me and a name picked out (99% sure), it is becoming much more real that we are having a baby! The awesome 3-D pictures of his face make us well up with awe and love as well - amazing!

As I spend time nannying for a family that welcomed their second son on February second, I praise the Lord for the ways this experience will prepare me to be a mom. Between wisdom from Heather and observing her care for her son, I am already learning a lot. I also have family and friends who have much wisdom to share and I am just so thankful for the ways God is using them to help prepare me for mommyhood.

As I dive into the adventure of regular, long-term nannying, as well as as we prepare to become parents, I can't wait for the adventures and lessons in store - much joy will be experienced, I know!!
