It’s a boy!

Cory and I had our ultrasound today to look at Lo’s anatomy.  We are happy to say that all looks well.  Four distinct chambers in the heart, neatly formed ventricles in the brain, 2 kidneys, and a normal looking bladder.  Oh, and boy parts!!!!  So, Carter Jackson Reed will be making his debut sometime in November.   I am very thankful that I couldn’t hold out on finding out what Lo was.  I just knew we were having a girl!  While the surprise would have been wonderful, I’m glad that I can now buy blue stuff with no wonder.

It’s been busy around here.  We got back from Rhode Island late Saturday, spent Sunday packing, and today had the ultrasound and sold the Jetta.  When we kept Luke as an infant, his car seat wouldn’t fit without having to pull the driver’s seat up so far that Cory couldn’t comfortably drive.  I guess it’s really time to move on to a “Mom” car.  We’re looking at station wagons – very nice, very cool, fuel efficient station wagons, but station wagons, none the less.  We only have five more days in Baltimore, so things will only get busier.

Below are some pictures of Carter:Boy parts! 

This is a shot of Carter’s boy parts, as if he were sitting on top of a photo copier.  The arrow points out the goods.  (I’m sure he won’t mind me sharing this photo when he’s 16!)

Facial Profile  

This one is a close up of a facial profile.  Notice how my little roly-poly has his foot up at his chin!

Whole baby

This one is “all” of Carter.  He had his hands up hiding his face most of the time during the sonogram, as he does in this picture.  Kinda looks like he’s sucking his thumb, but I think he’s just shy!

We’re already proud of our little guy, and Cory is already calling him C-man.  We can’t wait!  See you in Texas next week :)
