…But that is only because you haven’t met him yet! Allow me to introduce our firstborn son, Joshua Ellsworth Gillespie, Jr. who will be called “Jack” for short. At my appointment this morning with my midwife Carla, she said that it would be fine to have the ultrasound anytime and I was measuring a little ahead anyway so I called the ultrasound place and they were able to fit us in at 2:30 this afternoon. Jack is perfect in every way, and was totally hyper during the ultrasound. That may or may not have anything to do with the 1/4 cup of coffee I drank in the waiting room! 🙂 Anyway, the ultrasound tech said he was very photogenic and obliging. In the ultrasound measurements, the due date came up as being about a week earlier than what we previously thought, BUT having found out with Hannah how reliable due dates are, and also in the interests of not having to be induced when/if he’s late, we aren’t going to “officially” change the due date. Below is a profile shot of Jack. He looks so different than Hannah did (compare her 20 week ultrasound profile here)! I think maybe he has my mom’s nose. Kind of hard to say for sure at this point!
After the ultrasound, we headed over to Babies R Us where I got a bunch of cute baby boy things. FYI if you have littles at home, BRU is having a sale with an additional 30% off of previously marked down clothing, plus you can use your $5 off a $25 purchase coupon too. I tried out a few double strollers, but they seem a little unwieldy. Does anyone have any recommendations on those?
We are SO excited to be having a boy! This has been a very awesome day!
