I had my 20-week anatomy ultrasound today and both technicians confirmed independently that Baby #3 is indeed Boy #2!! For the simple fact that there have been no brothers (two or more boys) in either set of our family lineage for the last two generations, I am really excited for the coming years when Russell and Baby Boy will have that bond. They will be six years apart (to the month) so that friendship probably won't form until later in youth or beyond but nevertheless:-)

In typical boy fashion- for our family anyway, Little Brother had his hand and arm over his face so the technician couldn't take the proper pictures and measurements needed. My 45 minute appointment turned into a 90 minute appointment because the baby wouldn't turn or move to the right positions needed. Sigh. I've paid photographers to catch the simplest smile from Russell- and failed, and here it seems that Little Brother will follow in his footsteps.

It's all in the family!!

His first of "First Days of School"

The future grad class of 2024 started Kindergarten classes this past week... including Russell. He was most enthused at first and although we've had a few moments of near-tears, the week has gone quite well.

We're so proud of him and his new journey into this chapter of life. His babyhood is long gone and his boyhood is in full swing. Here's to new challenges and new accomplishments!
