The Big Reveal

So, I had my big 20-week sonogram this afternoon and…


The best news of all is that baby #3 looks perfectly healthy. (And judging from all the jumps I’m feeling, also quite happy!)


Just like my first two, this one didn’t cooperate too well with the test. It took three goes for the technician to get all the information she needed.


However… baby wasn’t at all shy about revealing gender.






I decided to torment my friends and family on Facebook with the following photo of my mother and me:


“So, which of us do you think wore the right color?” I teased.






The vast majority of folks seemed to think my Mom had the right idea.












Or should I say “but”…






It turns out that Brennan and I subconsciously knew what was what:


That’s right! It’s a boy!


Just as a refresher for anybody who doesn’t already see a bazillion pictures of my boys on Facebook, here are the first two little stinkers/sweeties:

232 and 242

I think they’ll be beyond excited to add another boy to their wrestling, climbing, yelling, rough-housing, singing, running, roaring little team.

We already are.

  1. Well, I just love boys!!!! Your house will always be filled with laughter, love, and sounds of things breaking or heads bumping! Congratulations!!! I am so happy for all of you!!!

    • Thanks, Ronnie! I think I’ve decided to tell the boys that I just give up: “Go ahead — do whatever you want — just don’t kill each other.” I’m resigning myself to broken bones (and furniture, as my brother told me) in my future.

  2. So glad baby boy #3 is healthy! He will be a wonderful addition to your family and I know Breck and Jude will be thrilled…oh, the fun you will have!!!

  3. Yay! I love that you’ll have three boys!! I’m still secretly wondering whether this little miss is going to come out and surprise us all by being a ‘he.’

    • Oh, that’s funny! You were one reason that I held out just the tiniest bit of hope that this one would be a girl.

      Not that I’m upset! Seriously, I’m actually way more excited about today’s news than I expected to be. What a nice feeling!

  4. Congratulations, Julie!!! I’m so happy and excited for you and your family! What a blessing! I’m so happy to hear that the baby is happy and healthy and I’m sure this little guy will bring you as much love, joy, and laughter as your first two boys have! I can’t wait to hear what you’ll name him. I love the names of boys #1 and #2! 🙂 Congratulations! You’ll be in my thoughts and prayers through the rest of your pregnancy (and after).

  5. OH WOW! The Walsh household is just overflowing with beautiful boys!

    Congratulations to you and Brennan and the boys on the news of baby brother!
