Snips and snails and puppy dog tails...

... that's what little boys are made of! :) I still can't believe I am having a baby boy! I am so excited and I think since finding out the sex it has really hit Chris & I. We've been sharing so many thoughts that we dream of when thinking of a boy from newborn to high school (ha, scary!). It is so fun! I kinda freaked Chris out saying he's going to be the only one that can change his diaper or take him to the bathroom when we are out since he has to go into the boy's bathroom. Hehe! I was only kidding! :)
Well, I guess I do have lots to catch up on. I never posted about our ultrasound visit, which went perfect! {Which by the way, all you Momma's out there that are familiar with Dr. BK - I don't actually go to him, I go to his nurses for ultrasounds. I just discovered he is a specialists for pregnancies with twins, high risk, etc. and they just call it Dr. BK's office. But my bad, I don't go to him for any special reason I just go to his good ole' nurses! Thanks Erica:)} Anywho~ the ultrasound check up went great! Little Grayson was on the move the whole time!! At one point he had his feet propped up on top of each other with his hand behind his head just chillin'! Then he waved a few times and sucked his fingers!! I wish I could sit in front of that screen all day, it make me so happy! She did all the measurements of his brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, etc. and said everything looks wonderful!! God is SO good! It is just amazing how God has created every inch of him. I literally wanted to fall to my knees and praise the Lord when I walked out of that office. I felt so blessed and just wanted to scream to God, THANK YOU!!! (which I'm pretty sure I did in the car!:) Here are some pictures of our sweet little angel showing off during the ultrasound... {sorry, these are blurry it's a picture taken of the ultrasound picture}.

This was when he was stretching so long!! My bladder is to the right in this picture. The more he stretched that little head, the more I had to go potty:)

3D picture - so crazy how well you can see! I love his little nose:) Notice the hand behind the head - he waved and "chillaxed" with his right hand... he might be a righty like his Daddy!I just wanna squeeze that little thigh! "Look Mom & Dad, I got 10 toes too!" Here he is sucking his sweet fingers:)

I am very glad last week went by so fast. It was by no means easy, especially when that little envelope was in my glove box! I thought I almost had Chris on Monday after the ultrasound, but no luck there I had to wait it out until Saturday. But hey, it was way worth the wait!! Our little revealment was so fun and it was a special way to find out! I've never seen Chris in so much shock in my life! Haha! We are both so excited and I think since finding out it has got us anxious for him to get here, but don't get me wrong I'm enjoying pregnancy... guess that's a good thing since I've got a long hot, swollen summer before baby Grayson arrives :)

*A little glimpse into our revealment shindig...

There's a story behind this... Chris' nickname in High School was peanut, I literally walked straight into this on the day of the revealment and had to purchase it.

Getting ready to cut the cake... Chris cut down and I pulled the slice out. You could not see a thing until you got it completely out. Tricky Miss Muff'n had about an inch of the icing still white so there was no way of sneakin' a peek!

(Please see previous post for Chris' immediate reaction!! haha!)

This is me showing my sister the cake. Lindz was on Skype for the revealment:) hehe!

Hugging my sweet Momma a.k.a. "Nonna". If only you could see her face. Tear were a-flowin' to say the least! We love you Nonna!

So happy :) We love you so much already Grayson!!!
