Sono Time!

So, it's a boy.  We are thrilled to death!  It's so funny because once you find out the sex, you're automatically like, "Of course!  That's what we always wanted all along.  Obviously!"  Regardless of what you thought beforehand.  I can't wait to have a mini-Adam running around here!

Yesterday morning our sonogram was at 7 a.m.  So we arrived there at like 6:40 a.m. with ants in our pants and beat the office staff.  We can't help it!  They called me in first (score!) and so Adam and I followed the sonogram lady into the room and she squirted some (nicely warmed) gooey stuff on my stomach and went to town.  She asked before hand if we wanted to find out and we said, "Heck yes!"  So, SECONDS LATER, she said "Here we go- it's a boy!"  We looked up and there were his two booty cheeks with a little peep in the middle.  

I had been feeling the boy vibe and so had lots of other people, I think, but it's still so crazy to imagine this little guy in our home.  It makes this whole experience so much more real-feeling, to call him "He" and look at nursery stuff that's not neutral.  

Funny thing- at the sonogram, they are measuring for all this other anatomical stuff- leg bone, spinal chord, cerebellum, etc.  It was SO cool to see the baby's stomach, bladder, everything.  This baby really is marvelously created, it is awe-inspiring. 

Well, so I had drank a butt-load of water beforehand because lots of folks told me that it would help with the clarity of the picture.  So, all of a sudden, the sonogram girl goes, "Oh my gosh, your bladder is gigantic! It's like bigger than the baby!"  We laughed.  She kept asking if I had to pee and I tried to play it cool (No, I'm fine!) but at one point, she needed the baby to turn and so she had me go to the restroom.  What a relief!  

The baby moved a lot!  He was kicking and flailing all around.  She asked if I'd had coffee or breakfast already and I actually hadn't because I was so busy chugging water and it was so early.  I think we just have an active kid on our hands!  

So, praise God for this baby boy!  It is so weird to feel so much love for this person you've never met.  Just thinking about him makes me insides all warm. I just want to cuddle him.  Sorry for the cheese factor but it's true!

Little boys are the greatest.....I have 3 and they are the squishiest schmooley booliest and give wubbins ALL the time. They are also little monsters....which I love.

Oh my, a little Adam. I agree as soon as I knew what he was, he then was exactly want I wanted and we needed. Amazing how that happens. You writing is so exciting and engaging and I feel a very big part of this baby's life already. Thank you for this amazing gift and I thank God that He knew Baby Jennings before he was formed. Bless you Camille. Love you and Baby and Adam. Poppa Bob.

Awww. I'm only an internet stranger and I am SO happy for you guys. That's a great sign when they are moving around w/o coffee or breakfast! A very healthy baby! Best of luck.

The development and birth of a child is a miracle in itself. I can't for the life of me understand why people in our country support abortion. They apparently have never held a new born baby in their arms. I can tell by your excitement that you and your husband will be wonderful parents. God Bless you both and thank you for sharing this wonderful miracle with everyone.

Yes, we need to see more photos of you please. =)

BOYS? Pigs and snails and Power's tail? Come on. Now you need to buy a set of clubs so The Doktor and Son can start going to J.C. Martin.

It's amazing that not only is the baby "marvelously crafted" but the entire system of the person it's growing inside of. Very intricate design. Very incredible. God knows his stuff.
