This Monday, I had my anatomy scan, where they measure everything from the baby's brain to its heart to it's arms, legs, hands and feet and everything in between. It was amazing to see all those things growing inside my belly - even though this isn't our first rodeo as far as the whole "growing a baby" thing goes, it was no less incredible and miraculous. And yet again, it kind of grossed David out.
Anyways, it was about an hour long, and we got to hear from the ultrasound tech that everything was growing and developing exactly as it should be. So yay! And then finally, at the very end, she asked if we wanted to know what we were having, which of course we totally did.
Lo and behold, it's another little DUDE! Colin is going to be a big brother to a little brother!
I'm not going to lie - I am a bit intimidated by the future grocery bills, the rough-housing and the sheer amount of baseball and football I will be watching, outnumbered 3:1 over here, but truly, the idea of raising brothers who will hopefully grow to be super close outweighs all of it. Plus if this little guy is nearly as sweet as his older brother, I will be spoiled rotten with hugs and kisses from two little men.
Since seeing my growing belly (20 weeks) isn't nearly as exciting as seeing the little dude growing inside it, here are a couple ultrasound pics for your viewing pleasure.

I'd love any advice from moms of 2+ boys! We can't wait to meet this little guy at the end of January.
