It took a good hour of ultrasound before we got the news but in the end there was no doubt that it's a boy. Alena's first reaction was "but I want a girl". This continued for the rest of the appointment and actually almost brought me to tears seeing how sad she was with the news. By bedtime she was in much better spirits and was happily talking about her brother. We are all excited with the news and are trying to wrap our heads around what having a boy will be like. Only a few more months until we get to meet him.
