Last Wednesday, Jennie and I had the exciting opportunity to meet our little guy for the first time during her ultrasound. We found what we had both already guessed, that we are having a little boy – Nathan Michael. However, we had to keep the lid on it because Jennie was planning a gender reveal party for this past weekend with the family.
We had one of the most in depth ultrasounds ever and it was totally awesome. The sonographer was training an assistant during our ultrasound so she was explaining what she was doing the whole time. So we learned exactly what she was looking for, why she was looking for it, and things to keep an eye out for. Thankfully, our little guy passed with flying colors!
I bet our sonographer took close to 100 pictures during the hour we were there. She was really particular about getting the best possible shots and you could tell that not only was she good at her job, but she loved doing it. We ended up with about 20 pictures to take home of little Nathan.
What do you think? Looks like a pretty strong leg for a triathlete doesn’t it?
All tired out after all the attention.
We managed to keep the secret until the party yesterday. Our parents, grandparents, and siblings joined us for lunch at our house. The “big reveal” was to be hidden inside cupcakes that Jennie made. Each one was filled with blue frosting. So, after lunch, everyone took one and on the count 3 (or 2 in the case of some people), we all took a bite!
Can’t wait to meet you in person Nathan! 19 weeks to go!
