Scratches & Scrapes

Gavin took a tumble down the front step yesterday morning on our way out the door. I felt so bad! He tried to step off the small porch step without hanging on to the railing because he was excited about seeing the neighborhood kitty that always comes over to visit. His hands might have somewhat broken the fall, but he has a scrape on his forehead and his entire nose looks like the top layer of skin was scraped off. :(

Just in time for his 1st birthday pictures on Saturday!

Right now the camera is lost so I don't have any pics to share. Maybe that is a good thing.

We have been waiting anxiously to find out this baby’s gender. We weren't able to tell at the 18 week full ultrasounds, so we convinced Dr. Barbour to do an ultrasound to see if we could determine the gender today. However, just like the ultrasound tech and the radiologist who looked last time, Dr. Barbour had a hard time making a determination of boy or girl.

The baby is breech with its bottom way down in my pelvic area, which makes it hard to see many angles of the baby’s pelvic area. Really the only angle he could see was as if you were looking directly down on the baby if it was laying on its back. Because we couldn’t get a profile angle it makes it hard to see a penis if there is one.

It could be a boy or it could be a girl. Surprise! In the meantime we figured this baby needs a name. Since Gavin's nick name is G-Unit (Gavin Unit) we decided this baby should be B-Unit (Baby Unit).

Today Little Man is ONE! Can you believe it?!? He was born a year ago at 10:49pm. He is such a special edition to our family. He brings so much joy and so much laughter to our lives. We can't imagine life without him!
