Let it be known that this morning (and again this afternoon), I (Bryson)finally felt the baby kick! We've spent several weeks with Whitney trying to guide my hand to where she felt the baby kicking, but he always seemed to stop right when I got my hand in the right spot. Finally today he was in a mood to keep on kicking AND kicking hard enough to me for know that he was actually in there! Coolest moment in a long time!

Power outages and gender findings

I was ready to put this post up last night, but then the power went out. Our whole complex plus the complex across the street was completely out of power. I don't know how far the blackout went, cause we could see some lights from the city, but Bryson and I had a grand time reading by the light of Bryson's bike flashlight. Luckily, the power came back on around 10 or so. But let's get on to the good stuff! I had an ultrasound on Friday! We had a great time seeing our little baby and....finding out the gender! Bryson had a talk with the baby the night before telling it to cooperate during the ultrasound, and it sure did. Is everyone ready? Can I get a drumroll? Thanks! Okay Bryson and I are going to be the proud parents of a......BOY!!!!!! He listened to Dad and let us know that he was a boy. We can't be more thrilled! Bryson has always thought it would be a boy; I at first thought it would be a girl, but lately I've been thinking boy. So we were both right! He's a wiggler so our appointment went long because the tech couldn't get all the pictures she needed. But everything looks great! Here's a couple of pictures of our little man. Isn't he so cute?! (I may be a little biased :) )

Looking out and saying hi to everyone! (And giving a peace sign ;) )

Bryson says it looks like he's blowing bubbles, but that's just his left hand waving around. :)

How cute is he?!
