A Valentine to Remember

Nothing says Happy Valentine's Day like feeling your baby's first kick.
I haven't felt the slightest flicker from him until tonight.
And this was no flicker.
It was somersaults, kicks, and punches.
So either he really likes Cafe Rio or he's just been waiting to show his love until just the right day :)
Either way, I'm loving it.

Happy Valentine's Day!

It's A...

BOY!

Introducing baby Mason...

He gave us plenty of crotch shots just to make it clear he doesn't want a pink room...
His tiny little feet :)
His tiny little face...
This is what Chase calls his "angry pirate face", with his eyepatch and all...

We're so excited to be having a boy,
but most of all we're excited that everything looks healthy!
They said he weighs about 9oz right now, which is crazy because I feel like he's at least a whole pound!
So all of the weight I've gained so far doesn't seem to be going to him,
just to other places in my body :-/ eek!

He was putting on quite a show for us, with lots of kicking, punching, and moving around.
He scratched his knee, and I even saw him wave!
Either that or he was just putting his hand up to his face.
But I like to think he was waving at us :)

We're so grateful for you baby Mason and can't wait to meet you!
