baby #2: it's a....

boy!!! 

here are some shots from our fun gender reveal: 






 team pink! 

 team blue! 




a few stories from our ultrasound: 

1. there is only one baby in there, which is a relief :) 

2. while taking the baby's measurements, the tech kept getting a perplexed look on her face. i have to admit this worried me at first, but she didn't actually seem worried, just confused. turns out everything was looking clearer and larger than she was expecting and she couldn't figure out why. finally she took a measurement of the head (i think?) and says "aha! you are not 19 weeks along, you are nearly 23." ummmm what? that's an interesting development! especially given that my cycles were very normal when we found out, so i didn't question the timing. on the other hand, it makes sense since i felt like all of my symptoms started happening so early. so, instead of our january 19th due date, we are now looking at december 29th. whoa. still wrapping my head around that one. not to mention, now all my bumpdates are "off" (ah, the life of a blogger). not sure how i feel about skipping ahead 3 weeks in my pregnancy. wow. 

3. baby boy was quite the little acrobat in there. at one point he was completely folded in half with his hands and his feet together. we got some pretty funny pictures. here is a sweet one of his little profile. i love it...


i can't believe i'm gonna be mom to a girl and a boy in just a few short months. so thankful for my healthy baby and not taking this miracle for granted for even a second.

I am so excited for you to have a lil' boy!!! Also...I can't believe you get to skip ahead 3 weeks...hopefully you have him before the new year so you can get the tax deduction (the bean counter in me) ;)

Congrats! Congrats! Congrats! So excited for you, Thatcher and Azalea! You guys will be the perfect little family. Can't wait to see how you adjust your Bumpdates (that would be so annoying to a type-A like me!).

I would not let go of my phone last night, awaiting the news. I was in mid-conversation with my husband, sister-in-law and her boyfriend when I got the text and seriously jumped out of my chair and said..IT'S A BOY!!! We all cheered (I told them beforehand that I was waiting for your text). Needless to say - I am SO excited for you and your whole family!! A BOY! YAAAYYYY!!! And, of course, Alexa knew all along..hehe

So happy for you, Melissa! What a crazy day, I'm sure you're still just processing everything :) Azalea will be a great big sister!!

So excited for you guys! How fun to have 1 of each now! Is Azalea excited/and does she understand she is going to be a big sister?! Being farther along in your pregnancy is a bit of a surprise I am sure - but how fun you can meet him earlier!!!
