He's a boy! (20 weeks)

tumm3Up until the last three weeks I have been thinking this little Chick Nug was a girl. Then one day I woke up and had a realization that this wasn't no girl. This was a boy. And boy oh boy was I excited. Everyone always asks, "So, what do you want it to be?" I guess I sort of wanted it to be a girl. I don't know why. Maybe because I am one? I thought that would be easier to deal with for my first time around? But once I got to see this little guy move around and do his tricks I knew he was the right baby for me. I am in love. Our little guy is already finding ways of entertaining us while in the womb. While watching him on the monitor he rolled, kicked, smacked his lips and then wound up and punched himself in the face. It was hilarious. I couldn't stop smiling and laughing the whole time we were looking at him. HIM! I love that I can say "him" instead of "it". So now the new question everyone is always asking is, "So, do you have any names picked out yet?" And we do. We have a couple that we absolutely full heartedly love and agree on. But, we are going to let this little guy come into the world before we pin any name on him. Right now we lovingly refer to him as Baby or Chicken Nugget... or Tugwell. Don't ask where Tugwell came from. It's just a funny name for that funny valentine in my tummy.
OH AND!! Looks like our due date is sooner than we thought! Nov. 23. Yes! That shaved a whole week off! I wish it were tomorrow!

On a different note, I was looking at those wedding photos you posted on facebook. I can't remember if I've seen them before, but they sure are beautiful!
