the BIG news!

This little family is having a boy!!! Sam is sooo excited that he told me when we left the doctor’s office that he was going to take the picture of this little guy's “junk” with him to work. Then he told me that he would try not to bend it, but that he was going to have to put it in his pocket. Hilarious! Londyn will be the best big sister in the world. I already know it. It has finally become more real to me. I am having a son! I love that lil guy already and I am hoping that before we leave town tonight we will have time to stop at H&M and get him an outfit. The day we found out Londyn was a girl we went and bought her first few outfits. I think it’s a fun tradition.

Stats on our lil MAN:
Today he was 12.6 inches long and 1 ½ pounds. So, from four weeks ago he gained a half a pound and grew 2.6 inches. They strapped all the monitors on me for about a half an hour and everything looks perfect. I had my glucose test this morning and my levels were just right. I won’t disclose how much weight I’ve gained because that would just be wrong. But apparently I don’t care enough because I just finished munching on potato chips AND fig newtons. Pretty bad combo, I know.

Today we had a regular ultrasound and the 4D. This little bean wouldn’t keep his hands out of his mouth the entire time. At one point he had his whole hand in his mouth. We saw him suck his thumb and suck on a couple fingers at a time. Soo cute. Because of that, though, we don’t have the greatest pics.

This weekend I enter my third trimester! So exciting… this pregnancy is flying by.  This weekend we will be celebrating on the beach in Spain! J
 Sucking on two fingers
These 4D pics are sort of freaky, and there is no fluid between him and the sack in some places (or something like that)... so the bottom right looks especially weird. 
 about to stick his thumb in his mouth
The inappropriate pic of his whole package... from the back. haha.. I don't even think I should put this on here, but I guess I am!
Luckily it's a boy cause Mimi and Poppy already got him his darling blessing outfit!


  1. YAY! Congrats Lex! I am so excited for you and your little fam. Boys are so much fun, like having a little boyfriend that follows you around all of the time. Glad everything's going well! Miss & luv ya!

  2. Congratulations! That is very exciting news! Londyn will make a great older sister. It is interesting how different little boys are from girls. It's almost like having your first baby all over again. You (and especially Sam) will love it!

  3. Congrats you guys! Glad he finally cooperated for you.

  4. Congrats! Boys are fun and I know Londyn will just love her little brother. What a well rounded family you'll have. Hope Spain was amazing!
