It's a boy!!

As most of you know, we are expecting a baby around December 22. I'm sure we will hear for many years to come how he got the short straw by having a birthday so close to Christmas. Em's grandma is rooting for the baby to share her December 23 birthday. Our little one will add to the overwhelming boy: girl ratio in the youngest generation on Dave's side and make it 9 boys to 1 girl.

We went to the doctor for our 19-week ultrasound today and although the baby was stubborn and overly modest, the ultrasound tech was able to tell that we're having a boy! Everything looks good, size is healthy, and we could actually see the spine, 4 heart chambers, and bones. It was really cool!

We're pretty sure this is the heart. The band below is the heartbeat tracker (136 bpm); all the little peaks are individual heartbeats.

Awesome pic of the legs:

And a front view of the legs:

We are super excited!
