It's a....


BOY!!! We think.

I went in yesterday for my 13 week ultrasound and was shocked when the guy told us that he could see the sex of the baby. He explained that there's this thing (not the actual "part" and not a bone, but I have terrible listening skills and didn't catch the exact term) that sticks out of the pelvic region, and when the baby is laying down perfectly, as MY perfectly behaved baby was, this part sticks straight out for girls, and sticks up at a 30 degree angle for boys. Well, Baby Burleson's was sticking straight up at a 90 degree angle, so it was definitely obvious. Daddy was so proud!

We didn't have a preference on boy or girl. I didnt' have any feelings and I didn't really have much time to have any dreams. We're just happy to finally know, or "think" we know. I still want to wait until the 20 week visit to confirm, but for now, I'm mentally preparing myself for a boy!

Will's first thought was, God, please don't let him play baseball....I physically cannot sit through that many baseball games. And I was just worried about how I was going to dress this kid because cute boys clothes are hard to come by these days. There's a fine line between cute and the neighborhood dork. But then I remembered that I married Will Burleson, the king of men's fashion. And I know that every day my son walks out of the house, he's going to look PIMP!

Oh Mimi - I am sure he will not look like a pimp if you have a say in it! Just get Robin to pull out all those "CUTE" sissy boy outfits that Will used to wear! YEAH
