Baby Martin Update

We had our big ultrasound this morning, and Baby Martin is definitely a BOY!! A few fun things to mention:
-He was playing with "it". Yes, that's right. My sweet, innocent, curious son. Patrick couldn't stop laughing and was just like, "Babe! Look at him!" I was horrified of course, since the little monkey can now hear his daddy cheering him on as he plays with his "business." What am I going to do with both of them?! They are going to be a mess, for sure. :)
-He was sucking his thumb when he wasn't playing with "it." Nice, huh? We need some germ-x up in there or something. Can't be sanitary.
-In one picture it looks like he's doing hamstring curls. His leg is all stretched out and the angle is just too cute. Think he's telling mama to hit the gym!
-His bladder was really full. Just goes to show he's a genius AND an excellent listener already. He probably overhead me telling Patrick I had to show up with my bladder full, so he was just going along with mama. That's my boy!

And now for some "belly shots." Or truthfully, "puffy shots".

My belly hasn't really popped out yet; I'm just growing everywhere else. Particularly, ahem, in the upper region. But I'm definitely filling out all over. A guy I work with (who didn't know I was pregnant) overheard me talking to someone the other day about my pregnancy. He's like, "Excuse me, but are you pregnant?" I said yes, and he said, "Oh good. I just thought you were filling out for the winter or something. Plus every time I see you you're always eating." What a way with words this guy has, huh? I thought about starting to sob, throwing down my donut(s), and running out of the room just for dramatic effect but I didn't. It's all worth it. :)

And quite honestly, it's all still a little surreal. I am overwhelmed with joy at this sweet miracle the Lord has blessed us with. He has truly done great things for us, and we are most certainly filled with joy!! (Psalm 126:3)

    You look gorgeous by the way and Shelby is our miracle baby too. We had almost a year of fertility drugs and 2 years of trying..it was tough but God got us where we are today w/ our beautiful 6 month old little blessing, Shelby! Congrats on finding out you're having a boy! :) May God continue to bless and keep you and Merry Christmas! Just think, next Christmas you'll have a little boy the size of Shelby! :) Hard to believe!

  10. You look wonderful! And yes, some people (often of the male persuasion) do have a way with words, huh?! I'm willing to guess that he isn't married with children. :) Or else he would have had someone set him straight long ago. Congratulations on Baby Boy Martin being so...uhm....outgoing. :)

  11. congrats!!! I bet it is amazing to see that bundle of joy! We were just discussing the "outgoingness" of boys last night. My 2 year old brother in law has "found" everything!!! I am so glad that everything is progressing well!
