It's a BOY!

We had our 20 week ultrasound and our baby looks healthy and very much like a boy. He was folded up like a burrito, with his head in his tummy and his legs up near his ears. Consequently, the tech couldn't get the necessary views of his face. I was bummed cause it means I have to have a second ultrasound to confirm that his face doesn't have any issues. Grrrr... I'm not a big fan of multiple ultrasounds and this means he will have a third.

BUT, a boy. That was really surprising to me. I guess I had thought it was a boy for a minute, but then really had in mind that it was a girl. I'm super excited though thinking about having one of each right at the beginning of our family. James is SUPER excited to have a son, which is so cute. Lily has started pointing to my belly and saying bebe. She is going to be a great big sister and already loves all babies.

Yeah for another Schmitt boy! I'm really excited thinking of a little missionary and Priesthood holder! The only problem now is a name. James and I are not on the same page...so stay tuned.


  1. Congratulations!! It's so fun to have one of each and fortunate to have them at the very beginning! Boys are a lot of fun! Good luck on the name. We had such a hard time coming up with a boy name that we both agreed on! So excited for you!!

  2. Ah, the naming game. Have fun! Congratulations!!!! Derek was so excited when we found out Isaac was a boy (well, we already knew but the u/s confirmed it) that he had half the family called before I was out of the bathroom to empty my poor over-hydrated bladder. I'm so happy for you and your little family.

  3. He is beautiful! We are thrilled for you and especially glad that we can actually be there when he is born! We can't wait to see you all again! Love you! Mom

  4. So happy for you! Congrats!
