The Big Reveal!

My parents weren't scheduled to arrive until tonight but plans changed and they drove to Dallas last night instead!  As soon as my parents arrived we let each set of grandparents pick a gift to open.  Ready for the contents?

Gift #1 (opened by my parents):





Gift #2 (opened by Michael's parents):



We're having a BOY and a GIRL and could not be more thrilled!  

Our appointment this morning went so well--they are both perfectly healthy and BIG!   Not only did we get confirmation that they are a boy and girl, but we also got to see the chambers of their hearts, all fingers and toes, brains, spinal cords, lips, etc.  It was amazing.  I was terrified the entire time (of course) but we received a dvd of the sonogram so we're going to watch it tonight with our parents.  I think I will be able to relax and enjoy it this time around.  :)

Most of you guessed correctly (stupid me and my posting of the heart rates) but the wives tale was definitely disproved--the boy was the one with the faster heart rate!

Thank you so, so much for your sweet words and encouragement!  We are so blessed.

And how neat to get to see so much of the babies!! I'm grateful that you can breathe easier now. Let the fun stuff begin, huh??

This is such exciting news! Congratulations! I understand about the heartbeats...both my boys had fairly high heartbeats as well.
