It's official, we are having a little boy. I will have to say that I was hoping for a boy. Of course I will also say that I would have been happy with another girl as well. I had though about how I would react to another girl and at first I'm sure I would have been a little disappointed, but then I would just think about how awesome it has been to have Abigail and I would be over it. However, that is not the case. It is a whole new game. We have to figure out what to do with a little boy. I will also admit that I am not totally sure about the above picture. I have looked at it several times and can't quite figure it out. There is what obviously looks like a boy in the center, but I can also see a head, shoulder, and arm. I am just going to trust the professional sonographer. We keep asking Abigail if she wants a little brother and every time the answer has been, nope. I don't think she completely grasps the idea yet, or at least that's what I'm hoping. I guess we'll see.
I am a little late on updating the blog. We are at 21 weeks now and moving right along. The beginning months were a little rough for Heather. She fought morning sickness for quite a while. Now she is feeling much better. We have been quite busy the past few months. We just got back from a great trip to California where we saw a lot of friends and family. Earlier this month Heather and Abigail went to Missouri to see her grandparents. We are excited to be expanding the family again and are looking forward to the new addition.

Well at 5:40pm on December 29, 2009, Phase 1 of the Koval Family Expansion Plan was complete with the arrival of Abigail Lee Koval. It was a life changing experience. After 41 weeks of waiting she is finally here, and she is perfect. It was well worth the wait. We are excited about our new addition and the journey ahead. We can't wait for everyone to meet her.

So as most of you have noticed, no, the baby isn't here yet. Heather was sure that she would be here this weekend, but baby had other plans. I was reading the Expectant Father book today and learned that it's not unusual for the baby to come later than you think, because determining the conception date is not an exact science. There can be up to a three week margin of error. I don't know if I should share this information with Heather right now.
We are having fun doing things while we're waiting. We figure the more things we plan the greater the chance they'll get ruined. So, we went to the Gaylord Texan hotel this weekend and saw the Ice exhibit, we went to a Christmas concert at our church, and we saw a movie. Still no baby.

It is cold and we are fully in the Christmas season, which means a baby could be here any time. I really haven't felt like this since I was a kid on Christmas Eve. Every time my phone rings I think that it's Heather and she is going to tell me to head to the hospital. Any minute my life could change forever. It's excitement, fear, and happiness all at the same time. Heather on the other hand, can not get this over quick enough. She hasn't been sleeping well and everything is a chore. Plus the swelling and aching don't help. It's almost over though, and she has been a trooper. She's still working and we just had our Christmas party on Saturday. The nursery is 95% done, our bags are packed, and we have probably more than we will ever need for this child. The waiting continues.
