Today was a good day.

We had the ultrasound today. I couldn't sleep all last night out of anticipation.  I was nervous/excited/scared/hopeful/anxious all at the same time.  I prayed long and hard last night that today would be a good day.  That we would find out we can continue to move forward with hope.  That we would have a healthy baby.

Today was a good day.  Our little baby is healthy.  Words can't express how much just typing those words means to me.  Tears flooded my eyes as I saw it's perfect little heart on the screen.  Four chambers.  Two valves.  All working perfectly. The miracle of life truly is just that... a miracle.  Never again will I take a healthy baby/pregnancy for granted.  My heart is full of gratitude tonight.

As for the gender...

Boy or Girl?

It's a BOY!
Little Guy couldn't be more thrilled to have a brother (it is after all what he requested).  
We are all very excited to have another boy added to the family!
