It's...... a.....

Boy!

--a very active and healthy one. I asked the ultrasound nurse if a kid can have ADHD in the womb. :) She was so great with us and said that she probably enjoyed our ultrasound as much as we did. We were able to get some fantastic views of our wiggly ....son. She also said that she's been doing this long enough to know that we are welcome to cut the tags and wash the clothes for this one, because it is 100% a boy. We are so excited to have a healthy child thus far and to know what gender to expect.
While we were in the doctor's office, Tessa kept lifting her shirt up to expose her belly because she wanted the doctor to listen to HER baby.

adrienne said...

Congratulations! Boys and girls are both so fun in their own way. I wouldn't worry to much about the wiggling. Emily was much wigglier than Max in the womb, but has a much more mellow temperament.

congratulations!!

Maren said...

Thanks, everybody! Yeah, we're working on names. Boy names are harder than girl names, I think.
Also, thanks for the nice hair compliments. I'm working the 1993 poof in this pic. :)

Hip hip hooray! Now our boys can wrestle each other! I LOVE your hair cut. I think it is time for me to do the same. I have been contemplating bangs.

Kelley Rae said...

Ditto to what everyone else has said - I'm so behind!! Guess this means lots of shopping, but that's the best part right!

Maranda said...

Congrats Maren! Boys are so much fun.

Haskins said...

COngrats!!!! That is super exciting!!! Boys are so much fun! You will totally love having a little boy.

Kelley Rae said...

PS - I'm an idiot!! I'm know it's McBride, I think I just put R. out of habit! Blame it on the pregnancy; that's a great excuse that will disappear in a couple months so I need to get my mileage out of it!

The Godfrey's said...

Horrah for baby boys!!! I love mine... I think every one should get one. Yes i will email you and let you know what is going on in my life... I know I am a bad friend... but we ARE graduating this year... I am pretty sure we will be in Omaha for another year... Jake graduates this year too doesn't he? I am exited for you. Anyway Matt needs the computer and is bugging me.... CONGRATS!
