XY

The results are in!!

My mom had a dream a couple of weeks ago and it "told" her I was going to have a boy. I felt like it was a girl....so did a lot of people! The ultrasound technician said they were all smokin' crack because this baby is clearly a.............

BOY!

I am in bed and am too lazy to scan the picture in...although I do have the DVD downstairs....
eh still too lazy to get up. I will post up the picture.....this little one is not shy about his privates. It's funny because Ashton's ultrasound picture was exactly in the same position- spread eagle.

I am not going to lie. I cried a little. I wasn't sure if it was because I was really surprised or because I was happy to find out. I think it was a little of both but I immedietely felt guilty because I was a little sad it wasn't a girl. To be honest, I have felt a little sad all day. But, after talking to my mom and reading an article in the Ensign my spirits have been lifted. Geez, I feel terrible actually admitting this. But now, I just really am grateful and happy to have a very healthy baby boy (I just hope he is mellow!!!!) I think I cried a little too because Ashton was going insane in the room and yelling and I thought- How am I going to handle 2 Ashtons?!?! The technician kept saying how beautiful and perfect this baby is, how that is a textbook picture of the heart ventricles, etc.

So yes, I am having a baby boy. The clothes I bought can be stored away for another day. And now I am looking at nurseries and bathroom ideas since they will have to share a bathroom :) I am so excited to hold this little baby boy in my arms and just fall in love with another mini-Lorin.

I had the same feelings when I found out that we were having another little boy. I think it took me close to a month to be totally excited to have another little guy. I just love all the bows and ruffles and girly things, and was bummed that I wouldn't get to buy those this time around. I'm excited now to have two little boys that can wrestle and play together and hopefully be best buds. And I also hope this next one is calmer because I don't know if I can handle two crazy little boys. :)
