We're having a Baby!!!

Yay!!! The Boytes are going to have a baby!!! It is so funny to read our first post below where we talked about not having kiddos to blog about...but when I wrote that, we were actually about a week pregnant. I guess the saying, "What you think about, you bring about" really is true...careful what you put in writing. :)

We are so very excited and can't believe that there is actually a baby inside of me. The first 13 weeks have been a breeze (knock on wood) and we are hoping that the rest of the pregnancy is this easy. As of today, I haven't thrown up once and haven't even gained a pound!!! Woohoo!!! Clothes are starting to fit wierd though...and I know that it is just a matter of time before I am laying on the bathroom floor, crying because my pants won't button. I have found that the old wives tale that women love pickles and ice cream when pregnant is true! I can't get enough ice cream and slurpies and smoothies and cold, creamy yumminess! And pickles are definitely up there on the list...fried pickles from Hooters are a little gift from heaven!

So, this video is from our 12 week ultrasound. We were so shocked that our Baby actually looks like a real baby...with feet and hands...and legs and arms. It is crazy how much our little friend is moving around inside there...and even crazier that I c
an't feel a thing. It is all just so amazing. Take a look at the video...the Baby's head is on the right side of the screen. You will be able to see our Baby's legs shoot up the left side of the frame...and then pull back in toward the chest. Baby Boyte likes to arch it's back and kick those legs...and swing those arms. How cool is that!!!

We will be going back in 10 weeks to learn if it is a boy or a girl. Kevin is asking everyone to pray for a boy...and a stellar athlete. I would love to have a girl, of course...however will be thrilled either way.

We hope you will check back often and read up on our journey to parenthood...we'll be updating more often now that we have something exciting to write about. :)
