Sorry for the delay. I just realized that I left everyone hanging after my big appointment Friday. The reason I was so desperate to find out last week was that I was leaving for the beach on Sunday. So it was great to be able to know before I went on my little vacation. And when I say "great," I mean crucial to my sanity.
Anyway, back to Friday afternoon...I couldn't believe it. My sister-in-law, Kate, and I were anxiously waiting for the sonographer to come in the room (as we quickly inhaled sandwiches we had stuffed in her purse). As soon as she got started, I explained how I have a 21 month old boy and everyone thinks this one is going to be a girl...

Here are some more pix of baby boy:
How freaky is this one? I never had a 3D pic with Niall...
Back to the beach :)
