HE'S A BOY!!!!!

YAY!!!!! I had my ultrasound today and no sooner then she put that thing on my belly the little booger flopped over and flashed us! Kinda like weeeeeeeeeee I'm a boy Mommy! LOL He was so cute all moving around doing karate and what not. HeeHee It was so fun to watch him. My heart smiled the whole time and Timmy was so excited to see him. It was to cute cause he was sucking his thumb practically the entire time. The tech was so sweet too! She had us in there for a good 40 minutes. :) I think she was having fun with my baby. HaHa We got 4 5x7 pic.s. What a difference from when Timmy was born the pic.s were scarce and only 3x3. :P So, he is healthy and growing. My due date is May 13th. Cute little spring baby! :) We are so excited!















Okay so I can finally share ONE of my secrets...
