It's a...

Please note: If you do not want to know the sex of Baby Tabler, it is suggested that you skip this blog entry and come back another day. The sex will be revealed...there will be pictures, though, so if you ever change your mind the blog will still be here.


Surprise of all surprises...

We went to the doctor today for the 18-week visit and ultrasound and were able to take a nice sneak peak at this child I'm growing inside my belly. After a nice 15-minute journey around the baby's body, inspecting all the ins and outs, we were able to catch a nice (and rather obvious) glimpse at the tell-tale sign of our child's gender. It is definitely a boy! Which is really funny because just about everyone in our world has told us that it's a girl in one way or it the OB/GYN who could tell from my crazy skin and the baby's wild heartbeat that it was going to be a girl, or the guessers who just knew it was going to be a girl, to the genie-like friends who'd rub my belly (what belly there is to rub) and noted it would be a girl. So I guess they were all wrong. Not that we care...I think once we saw the baby in there...the four valves of the heart, the two chambers of the brain, two legs, two arms, 10 fingers, and 10 toes, we didn't really care one way or the other what it was. But I will say it's kind of nice to put a gender with the "it" that he has been for the past few months.

I have a video of the ultrasound and some pictures that I'll upload later...but I'm in Charlotte and can't upload the video or scan the pics quite yet.

Now comes the fun part - the names. At least our choices are narrowed down. And we have a good jump start on this list, it's just a matter of getting down to the last few and picking one that will be the fun. Any ideas are most welcome.
