It's a….

Woowee, what a morning. Don't try to wrangle two preschoolers out the door and into the car for a crack of dawn doctor's appointment on the other side of town while wearing regular pants. Just don't, learn a lesson from me and stick to the sweats, okay?

We barely made it on time, but we did, and Chris got to join us. So grateful he was there because the wait between ultrasound and OB was abnormally long and the littles were done. Adjusting to preschool has really thrown our schedule off. Otto is NAPPING right now if that gives you any indication of how coo-coo-cachoo this morning was. 

But you want to hear the news! Let me get to that already. 

Otto and Meri were pumped to find out if they were getting a brother or a sister! Thanks to Katy they had these fantastic shirts to wear.
Otto recognized the hospital accros the street when we pulled into the parking garage and wanted to know, "Is the baby coming out today??".  He is really excited.

In the waiting room, along with seven other couples who were obviously first time parents, he loudly asked if the ultrasound tech would check out his baby. (He thinks he's pregnant.)

"Mom? Will she check my baby? It's this big. shows three inches with fingers I think I'm having a girl. Tell her that God put it there."

There was a lot of nervous laughter. They don't stay little forever guys!

When it came down to the big moment, the tech asked everyone for their vote. Otto, Meri, and Chris were all still adamantly team pink, and my guess was boy.

…Let this be a lesson to you guys, Mom's are generally right!
And we are thrilled! Meri and Otto were excited to tell everyone on the way out through the waiting room that we are having a BOY baby (Otto paraded the ultrasound photos around Vanna White style). Neither seem disappointed that their guess wasn't right, but Otto did ask, "Can the lady check the back? She only checked your stomach. Maybe there's one more."

This little guy was very active, bouncing around all over and giving the sonographer a run for her money. He waved at us, or possibly shook his fist, I don't think he was very happy to be in the spotlight.

No name yet, it will take us awhile. Just go ahead and assume we won't know until we meet him. :)

Yay for little boys! We are so excited to meet this little guy in January!
