"He always waves at the gate. Its tradition."


We are a family of traditions. At Christmas, birthdays, holidays, weddings etc. The Christensen's love traditions. Our family is no exception. We just found out that we get to have a LITTLE BOY as our first child! We are so excited(especially Devin. He was nervous thinking about having a little girl. ha ha)!!! It feels so great to finally know the identity of our little one. Knowing what we are having has made it seem like he will be coming so soon. The ultrasound was so much fun and we were so relieved to see that he is healthy and so far growing ahead of schedule. We had a few worries that were related to my seizure medication, but discovered that all was well and from what they can tell, he is perfect!! It was so fun to watch how excited Devin was during the ultrasound because to him the baby has just been the little seahorse on our fridge, but now it is his son. It is amazing how quickly they grow in there. We were just so thrilled upon hearing the news and it just seems so funny to us and to all of Devins family how much of a tradition having a boy first really is. We are so excited to welcome our baby boy into the world this summer!!! Thank you to everyone for your support and love and guessing!!

That is so exciting. I'm glad that you are having so much fun being pregnant. It is really full of excitement and tender mercies. My favorite part was being able to feel Ky roll around inside. the first few times its a little weird and sometimes it scared me to death because I wasn't expecting it, but it really is amazing. Good luck with everything and I hope that you have an easy pregnancy! Best wishes and lots of love!
