When we found out we were pregnant, Ryan's first request was to not find out the gender of the baby. While it took me a long time (and lots of trying to talk him out of it), I finally agreed that we could wait until birth day and have a very special surprise.
Our sonogram was last week, and we of course informed the technician of our decision. She went through the anatomy check and when it was time to go 'down under', told us to look away...we obliged and walked about from the appointment still in the dark.
However, the sonogram printer was broken. She would send us the pictures in a few days.
Guess what picture she included?
Spread eagle baby, with a little extra 'attachment' and the letters XY next to it.
While we could have tried to keep it a secret, we just didn't have it in us...it's a BOY!
