We found out the gender of our baby! We are so thrilled to know, as we can now picture a little personality.

Ben was away on the day of my ultrasound, so I had the technician write down the sex of the baby on a card and seal it. I wanted to be with him when we found out!

Since Ben wasn't going to be home for some time, and we couldn't stand waiting any longer, we decided to get together on Facetime on our computers and find out together virtually. It's not the same, but it's the next best thing to being together!

We connected and saw each other's smiling faces. Even though we knew we were having a baby, this felt even more real, like we were about to catch a glimpse into who this little person is who will change our lives. I opened up the card and showed it to the camera as Ben and I both screamed out. It's a boy!
