it's a....

BOY!!! Yay!  We are sooo excited!  And a little surprised too!  The funny thing is, I've been calling this baby a "him" this whole time, which might seem normal to most people, but with both of my girls, I called them "her" before we even knew.  Must be something about that mother's intuition.  Plus, this baby took a lot longer to move around than the last two, so I figured it was probably a big, lazy boy.

And there is no doubt that this is a boy.  It was very obvious.  We had the ultrasound tech whisper it to Adeline first so she could tell us - which she loved!  But looking at the screen was a dead give-away.  I didn't think I would be able to tell, but it was right there staring at me.

This is all new and a little scary for me.  Those of you with boys will have to pass on some tips to this newbie!

We're all beaming around here tonight!  Time to clean out the girl clothes and look for great deals on baby boy clothes!  How fun!

No worries, Brooks family.  The Brooks family name will now be carried on.

Congrats, on the baby boy! I am sure you will do just fine with a boy! It's not like you are getting a highschool boy right off the bat. You get to start with a sweet little baby boy!

Chad & Katie, Congrats on the news! A boy! Chad, you have to start a daddy/son time as soon as he's old enough. He will treasure that time alone with you! Micah and I love the times we can spend alone doing 'boy' stuff.(especially in a house full of girls!)
