Ultrasound and the Sex of the Baby!

We were luckily enough this weekend to get to have an ultrasound in Little Rock with one of my mom's friends! I was so nervous going into it, yet so excited!
We never dreamed that we would find out what we were having. I was thinking that we would just see the baby and it wouldn't move all that much! Well, I was wrong!! It was so cool! I loved it!
I laughed so hard when we first got there because she told me to lay on the bed. I felt like a patient on Grey's. Ryan's parents were both there, my mom, Ryan, and the lady doing to ultrasound April. Everyone was staring at me!
With in the first few seconds of seeing the baby on the screen my mom (who used to do ultrasounds) and April knew the sex of the baby!!!!
Then they ignored the fact that they said they knew an kept calling the baby a he. So, I had to know now! I wanted to see what it was!

It's a BOY!!!!!!

It was a clear as day! We could all tell it was a boy! Ryan is so excited! He could hardly contain himself! I can't believe we already know what we are having! We are so so so excited! One of my favorite parts of getting to see him for the first time was that he had hiccups and was jumping all over the place.
OK I am sure you are ready to see the pictures!

The tummy on the left and the head!His hand is on his face. If you look closely you can see see his legs and feet on the left side of the screen.

He is really long. You can see his spine bone in this picture. Also, he is sucking his thumb.
Ryan and I afterwards.

There you have it! Our little boy! Jackson Payne!

That is awesome! I think we knew around 16 weeks with both of ours--it just makes everything so real. Dr. H. did ultrasounds all of the time and the first one was before I had ever felt Lilly move. All I could think while I was watching the screen was "how is something that size moving and flipping in my stomach and I am not feeling a thing?????" Haha. Congratulations!!!! We are so excited for you all and LOVE the name.
