It's a....

Tuesday, December 6th, was a big day in our books.  It was the day I had been waiting for since the end of September.  Carl and I had much anticipation for this day, as it was the day we were to find out if we were going to have another little boy on our hands, or a precious little girl.

And, the ultrasound showed we are going to have another little BOY!!!

Carl and I are both completely ecstatic about the news.  When the tech showed us that it was (DEF) a boy, we were both smiling from ear to ear.

We immediately started calling our family members after the appointment to deliver our exciting news.  We asked each one of them what they thought the sex would be, before we told them.  And, all THIRTEEN of them thought it was a girl!  Not a single person guessed boy.  I thought that was kind of funny! 

I didn't care about the sex either way, I truly didn't.  But, I said I would be completely content with another boy, as I have really enjoyed raising a boy.  Granted, I don't know what it's like to have a little girl, that will have to wait.  Carson will now have a little brother to become buddies with, and that makes me so happy.  Two little rough boys running around our house?  Consider me excited as can be!

Another little boy to love on, snuggle with, and spoil rotten.....April can't come soon enough!

I am so excited to dig out the bottles, burp rags, receiving blankets, sleepers, etc.  All the essentials that Baby Boy Brouwer will be needing in his first few days of life.  Before we know it, our house will be prepped to bring home our newest bundle of joy.

I always wish for the Winter months to go quickly, especially now that we have a little one, because bundling them up is just no fun.  But this Winter?  Goodness, it can't go fast enough!  Bring on Spring, and all that is baby for this family :)

It's amazing how much love we have for this little boy already.  Carl left for work last night, and he said good night to his little Wee Lad, kissed me good bye, and left saying "I love you, and our two little guys!"  It about made me cry.  "Our two little guys".....what an amazing thing.  To see the little baby kicking and moving on the monitor during the ultrasound is about enough to take your breath away.  He is our little miracle from above, and we thank the Good Lord for him every night.  We now say...."And we pray for baby brother" during our nightly prayers, instead of just saying baby.  And to hear Carson say "brother" is the cutest thing ever.  I think he will be such a good Big Brother to this little one!

19 Weeks, 3 Days
