I saw my grandbaby again today!

I went with Sarah and Bennie for her ultrasound today. The technician told us right up front that we probably wouldn't be able to determine the sex of the baby today. She said that at the next ultrasound appointment in four weeks we'd have a much better chance so we resigned ourselves to the fact that today would not be "Reveal day"!



Just look at this precious little baby. It was stretching and moving and kicking all over the place. I wish I'd taken a picture of Sarah and Bennie's faces as they watched this. It was one of those priceless moments in life. Bennie was in absolute awe, and the expression on his face is one I will never forget. So sweet! We just couldn't get enough of looking at this precious baby.



Pardon the tilt of the picture. Sarah was so excited when she was scanning it that she didn't get it in the scanner straight.








And then, she moved the wand and what should appear on the screen?











Are you ready?








Are you sure?








Wait for it.....








Wait....








Wait....








It's sooo worth the wait....


























IT'S A BOY!!!!!!!!!





It's Benjamin Brooks Hoskins and the technician said there is absolutely no doubt about it!





Did I mention that I fell in love on the spot? I'm in so much trouble! I can't wait to hold him and spoil him absolutely rotten.

What wonderful news! I know you will be making all kinds of plans now for that little one. It's nice in a way to be able to say you need something for a little boy. Years ago we never knew til the birth. Sometimes they still never know due to the position the baby is in. New life is such a miracle. 'On Ya'-ma

Congrats... grandsons are wonderful and they love Grandmas to death. My grandson would live with me if you'd let him.
I'm so glad you all were able to see what it was sure makes shopping easier.
We still have a ways to go before we get to see what the next one is for us, but I have a feeling this one is a girl.
Enjoyed the pics.
Take care, Chrissie
