Snips n' Snails...

and puppy dog tails...
That's what little boys are made of!

After a momentous ultrasound today, we're expecting a little boy on or around October 5.

Alex is already excited to teach him all about trucks and dinosaurs, and of course worms. He's also hoping to share a room with him when the baby gets big enough to not cry at night, and Alex is planning on sleeping with his eyes open, I assume to keep watch over the baby sleeping in his room.

Everything looked good on the ultrasound, we were able to count lots of little fingers and toes, and watch as he sucked his thumb and waved at the camera. With the due date moved up a week, I'm really feeling like this baby will be here in no time at all.

I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around having another boy in the house (I'm really going to be outnumbered now!). It's hard to imagine that this won't be a little copy of Alex, since he's my main idea of what a little boy should be. I can't wait to meet this new little one. Less than 20 weeks to go!
