It's a . . .

This picture isn't the money shot, but I thought his profile was a little cuter than a crotch shot - ha! We had our ultrasound this morning and it was great - the little man is growing beautifully.

Dan and I were talking about how, even though I've been feeling great movements and little kicks for weeks now, that seeing the ultrasound is just such a relief. Gone may be the naivete that accompanied our first pregnancy, now that we have endured a miscarriage between Charlotte and Cooper, but our gratitude and appreciation for the ability to grow a healthy baby has only strengthened.

We know those who long to hold just one baby in their arms and we know others who are struggling to add to their families. We don't take any of this for granted. Although I might "forget" momentarily that I'm pregnant, amidst the business of parenting our two littles, I don't for a moment forget the awesome responsibility of this blessing. We can't wait to meet him!
