Joshua Robert Cernock
Here's our little guy: Joshua Robert. Not Josh (per David), but Joshua.
Due to Riley's birth defects, I was required to have a Level 2 ultrasound this go around. It's just a more detailed ultrasound. The photo up top is from that ultrasound, which was on July 22. The photo below was done yesterday at Duke Pediatric Cardiology. Both confirm boy parts.
If you look closely, you can see the heart here. It actually looks a little heart shaped. It's the void to the right of the photo. Everything looks good with Joshua's heart so far!
A nice profile shot. He was moving a lot. Some of the photo's from the ultrasound show blurry limbs! And during the echocardiogram yesterday he pushed on the probe the entire time. The technician actually laughed at his attempts to push back.
Peek a boo!
My thoughts on having a boy: it's something different. Which is good for me. I'm excited to have something different. I think Hannah will continue to be a huge helper and an awesome big sister. I think Riley will be a little bully and a bit jealous, but Josh should outgrow her before too long, evening the playing field out a bit. David is thrilled. Beyond thrilled. This will be the last child David and I have. Or at least plan to have. ; ) We had talked about having a third in the past but we thought we'd wait another year. We're just getting it out of the way sooner now! That being said, the fact that it is a boy is more reassurance that we're done. I feel like our family is complete. And that's a great feeling. Next time you see our little guy will be the middle of December.
