Baby Wells is.......

This morning will certainly be one for the record books in the Wells' household. I woke up early like a kid on Christmas morning, super excited to see our baby. Matt slept in until 20 minutes before the early service...although he claims he was up before me, but chose to stay in bed.

We had to leave church before communion and the closing hymns - we were disciplined enough to actually listen to the message today, as difficult as it might have been.

We arrived at the hospital and just sat silently reading for a while. I always get super nervous before ultrasounds. I've only had two go "well" in my recent history.... so, I freak out.

We immediately saw the heart - all four beautiful chambers.

We saw the baby sitting cross-legged, with a hand on it's head and another in it's mouth.

We saw the baby desperately trying to figure out how to suck it's thumb.

And we even saw (and felt) the baby kick at the nurse when it got tired of being prodded at.

This entire time, the baby sat cross-legged or straight-legged and very modestly - so that we couldn't get even a peek.

And then our tech, Leslie, pulled a few tricks out of her sleeve.....and very calmly and slyly said.....

"It's a girl!"
