Well, the little critter growing in Tracie's tummy decided to give in to popular opinion and we're having a boy. When we went to get the ultrasound, it was kind of funny because when they told us we were having a boy, I don't think either Tracie or I were surprised.
Not sure if it's because everyone and their dog have been telling us it's a boy or fatherly intuition, but we've known for awhile now, but it was good to have it confirmed. It was also AMAZING to see our little guy wiggling and moving as we got our first real look at him.
Morgan (the working title) was a little shy, and we only saw his face once, but I can already tell he's gonna be a cutie. He wasn't shy in another way, and made it pretty obvious he was a boy. (As our nephew Tyson explained to us, there's only ONE way to know if he's a boy, and he's definitely a boy)
Tracie's mom Kris also knew among the others (apparently there was some kind of club) that we were having a boy, and so she bought this cute little blue baby pj's for our little fella. I've never freaked out over baby clothes before, I've said "oh, that's cute." but this afternoon at lunch I picked it up and looked at it, started cradling and rocking it, and got emotional- thinking I'm going to be holding my son like this soon!!!!! I then plopped the outfit on a chair, giving myself a mild heart attack, then reminded myself that there is not yet a baby in that outfit, and it is perfectly acceptable to drop newborn pj's on a chair, as long as the newborn is not currently IN said pj's. I need more sleep.
