And We are Having.....

A BOY!!!!!!!

Thats right! In our ultrasound yesterday, we found out that our precious little Baby Smith, is really in fact, Jackson Ward Smith! We can NOT wait to meet him!!

We need to scan in the ultrasound pictures, BUT, I definitely thought the thigh bone was our little boy's special part. It wasnt until the picture was printed and I saw the arrow that I realized that I was wrong! Ha!

Tonight, we had a family birthday party for Craig! But it was also the big reveal party to our family! I made shirts for everyone, so that they can wear them to the hospital when Jackson makes his debut into the world! Also, thank you all for your continued prayers regarding Jackson's cyst. After telling people our news, we have been encouraged with many different stories, and we can not tell you how much we appreciate the encouraging words. Even though, I have this incredible laid back new character trait, I got overwhelmed a little bit last night and had a small breakdown. I know that again, its just a glimpse into motherhood.. constant worrying. But, knowing that there is absolutely nothing that I can do to help my baby, is just really hard! So please just continue to pray for Jackson and then for us! We will keep you updated with everything that we find out!

YAY for little Jackson! I can not wait to see your sweet face!

I am so excited for you both! Of course it would've been great boy or girl, but I for one am especially excited you're having a boy! Stacy and Mindy have girls, now me and you have boys. All others will have to keep an even tally. ;o) And Jackson is such a cute name. Will he go by Jack or Jackson?

YAY! That tshirt idea is so cute! And I'm sure it gave you something fun to do to take your mind off of your worries. I too have close friends whose baby had a cyst and it went away before she was even born! But we will still be praying that all is well with Jackson Ward! (I especially love the middle name...so classy!)
