Snips and Snails...

and puppy dog tails,
that's what little boys are made of.

Today we had our "big" ultrasound, which showed we have a healthy baby boy on the way! I think Patrick and I were both taken aback at the news, yet we're both so very excited to have a son to carry on the Moss name. Patrick had a dream a few nights ago that this baby was a girl, yet it was only a dream! He's really looking forward to playing GI Joe's with him, though he has a few more years for that.

We now have the daunting task of naming our little peanut. I don't think there are any prospects yet, so we have a lot of discussing to do!

Oh, we love him so much already!
