It's A....


We went in for an ultrasound at 16 weeks to check my cervix and they usually look at the baby while we are there too. My cervix looks good and we were able to get a little peek at some little boy parts! Baby was being shy at first with his legs crossed, but the ultrasound tech wiggled him a little and he got over his shyness.

We originally thought that Danny wouldn't be able to make the appointment because of work. We had planned on having them write down the gender and put it in an envelope and then taking it to get cupcakes made in that color and all finding out at the same time. But, Danny was able to make it so we found out at the ultrasound and then surprised the rest of our family later.

{Cohen thought he was getting a sister}

{But he was also interested in a little brother}

I was convinced that the baby was a girl and during the ultrasound she even said that the heart rate was a girl heart rate. But, I am also totally not surprised that it's a boy.  My mom and each of her 3 sisters all had two boys first. I have three brothers. My brother and his wife had two boys first. We had two boys first and now another. Danny has two brothers. I have one lone niece, who was really, really hoping for a girl. But, our family makes boys, it's what we do.

We are beyond thrilled for Cohen to have another brother. I can't wait to see what kind of relationship they will have. I'm still have to catch myself though when I think the baby is a girl now that I know it's a boy! And I'm glad I can stop calling him "it".

So, there you have it, another boy for the Kimmels!

{Yay! A brother!}
