"hi mama"

Had such an unexpected blessing yesterday!! I got to see baby boy in an ultrasound. Woohoo! The seven weeks since my gender u/s has been forever ago. Talk about comforting. It was balm to soothe the soul. The most amazingly wonderful thing... he was uncharacteristically calm during the check... so during the course of the u/s when the "wand" thing was over his head, he turned to look right at it. He stared at me and blinked several times, while I watched him open his mouth and swallow fluid. Oh my goodness, it was as if he was like, "Hey mama. How's it going?" He just stared and stared, opening and closing those adorable eyes. I almost cried like crazy right there it was so sweet. He has the chubbiest little cheeks (that would be from me/my dad) that I could see right there on the screen as he tipped his head back. Of course... I also had her check to just "make sure" he was indeed a boy and there it was - confirmation. :)
What a huge blessing. Man, I love this kid. I sure can't wait to meet him on the outside.
