Baby #3: Boy or Girl?

At 19 weeks, we had our ultrasound to determine the gender of baby #3.  We have had the same ultrasound tech for all 3 children, so we trusted her first guess at 12 weeks, but it is during this ultrasound that the gender is very obvious.  So, what is your guess?



Zoe has wanted a sister from the beginning.  Bennett initially wanted a brother and in true Bennett fashion switched to, "When this baby comes home you won't care for us anymore."  

The first thing Cathy said when the ultrasound began was....


I was hoping to share of the ultrasound photos and a short video, but I can't get the CD to open on my computer.  Everything from the heartbeat to the bladder to the long bones to the brain looked good during the ultrasound, which is always a relief.   

Glory to God that He creates and knits babes in our wombs and through all of the ups and downs His purpose in fulfilled and He is glorified! 


And for an outtake....


Now on to choosing a name, putting Bennett and Zoe in the same room, surviving pregnancy in the summer heat, getting rid of all Zoe's clothes (BOO HOO!), preparing the nursery.......
