The Gender Verdict is in...

.
 It's a Boy!!!
I couldn't be more excited, and I had to celebrate by going to H&M and buying the cutest things I could find! Today has been a day I will never forget, all of a sudden this pregnancy has taken on a whole new feeling. It feels so real, I can now refer to him as a him/he and not an "it". I constantly picture what he will look like, what his personality will be like, how much I can't wait to snuggle him and watch my husband teach him how to be a "good boy". When I think of a baby boy I am so excited, but I am nervous when I think how he will grow up and be a teenager and a grown man and I am his mom. It's a scary thought to raise a boy, but I know with the help of my husband, family, friends and God it will all work out.

When Chad saw the clothes this evening he said I can't believe our baby is the one who is actually going to be wearing these clothes. It really is an amazing feeling to be doing things for our son. These next 5 months (exactly 5 months from today) are going to be so fun getting ready for him, at the same time I can't believe I have to wait 5 more months to meet him. I'm going to start by "Baby Boy" board on pinterest with nursery ideas and craft projects to keep me occupied. If any of you know of any cute websites or places to shop for boys please let me know!!

18 Week Picture.  I made sure to dress in both pink and blue for the appointment, not favoring either boy or girl :)
