And the results are in...

We are having a BOY, three boys! I am still in shock but surprisingly very excited. I feel amazingly prepared and can't wait until I can hold him in my arms. I am sure the rest of my pregnancy will feel very long. It always seems finding out the sex of the baby makes it that much more real that we are going to welcome another special little person into our family.

We have decided to name him Gavin Mitchell, Mitchell after Eric's cousin, Todd Mitchell, who passed away in March after battling cancer. The doctor said little Gavin is doing really well, measuring five days ahead in size (go figure, both of our boys were five days early). I really hope he is not an eight pounder like Ethan, but what can I do? The tests for genetic/neurological defects came back negative and all his parts are in place. When the doctor looked at the ultrasound picture that confirmed he was a boy she said "yeah this one is not really debatable, he is definitely a boy." So all I could do was laugh all day. But I am in a really good place and just hoping that since Micah knew it was a boy, his prediciton that we are having a girl next comes to fruition as well (that's for you honey). ;)
