it's a...!


ahhhh, right?!  against all odds we're having a boy.  i come from a family of 3 girls and we have 2 nieces on jay's side so literally everyone (including us) thought it was going to be a girl.

we didn't mean to find out at 16 weeks, but at our appointment we met with a new doctor in the practice.  barely through the door he said " i don't you guys well, but there is sonogram room that is free if you want to see your baby this week."  we did not hesitate.  jay was wondering why i was getting all nervous and i told him at this point we could probably find out the gender, especially if it was a boy.  i'm actually glad we didn't have days to over-think this and had 30 seconds to mentally prepare instead.

 i am so thankful that i get the ultrasound on the belly now, our little peanut was actually hanging upside down, looking like a little drunkard passed out... what a lush :)

the doctor wasn't sure if he'd be able to tell the gender from the baby's angle so i told him to twist, bend, fold me however he needed to be able to tell! once rolled onto my side he was able to get a "feet looking up view" and we saw this...

 he literally said "haha there's his weenie, it's a boy!"  the look on jay's face is one that will be imprinted in my brain the rest of my life, it was a mix of surprise, happiness, and utter joy.  we were both so surprised and tried to explain to the doctor our unlikely odds of "the weenie."  he then showed us some 3D images of our little guy
his cute little back and tushie

his hand is always by his face! my parents told me ever since i was a baby i always slept with my hands on or around my face and now i still do as a 27 year old.  so glad he is somehow taking after me already!

it was a little hard letting go of all the hours i spent daydreaming about what life would be like with a girl or with a boy. now that it is for sure, it feels like someone popped that pink balloon.   it was a good feeling though, to clear the uncertainty and start thinking blue!

my family in particular was especially excited to hear of a boy since we haven't had one of those yet!  jay's family was excited for their first grandson and someone to carry on the lahara last name. 

so there you have it, we're team blue!
