It's A Boy!

We were very sneaky and snuck in one last $4 ultrasound before we left Moldova to see if we could tell what the gender of the baby is. We kept it a secret, though, because we wanted to be able to tell our families the big news in person! But now they all know, and the news is out! Baby Tapp is a BOY! We saw the evidence ourselves, and it seemed pretty clear to us that there was no room for error. So we are very excited - we both wanted our first one to be a boy! With all the packing, moving, and celebrating Christmas, we haven't had time for a naming discussion yet, so we're not incredibly close on making a decision there... We'll let you know when we come up with something!Here's a couple good pictures from our ultrasound. Below you can see his spine and legs - cool!
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, and that you're all praising God for His greatest Gift to us - HIS Son. :)

Joni... just found you in the blogosphere. Remember us from HBC? Congrats on the baby boy! Very exciting! We are expecting, too, due in February. It has been fun looking back at your posts... those days were not too long ago for me. Isn't pregnancy a crazy and wonderful experience?

Hey, Shawn and Karen! I am so glad you both found my blog! Congrats to both of you on your precious little bundles! Karen, I love reading your insights on your blog, but I couldn't figure out how to comment to you on it - so this will have to do! I look forward to reading your thoughts as your big day approaches! :)
