And it looks like the big sister doesn’t know quite what to think!
Just kidding…that just happened to be the expression I caught from her 😉 She was really only interested in the “chot-lat” Gigi was handing her between shots!
Oh my word, a BOY!
For the last 21 months I have LOVED being a girl mom, but I am so so thrilled that in October I’m going to get to experience the love of a little boy too! What an amazing blessing.
Chris was still working in Houston last week, so unfortunately he wasn’t able to be at the big ultrasound. We were both pretty bummed about that, but thankfully the excitement of finding out the gender kind of overshadowed everything else on that day. My mom was sweet enough to join me–although I didn’t have to twist her arm, ha!–and it was actually really neat because she had never been to an ultrasound before. Let’s just take a minute to think about that…she had 3 children and never saw any of us until the day she delivered!! Thank goodness for modern technology because I don’t think I would’ve believed I was pregnant back then! 🙂 Anyway, it was a really sweet experience to share with my mom…and Chris was just excited to get the news of a healthy baby boy when it was all said and done!
After the sonographer made sure I wanted to know the sex, that was the first thing she went to. She said “well that looks a little suspicious for a boy part…yep, sure is!” and my mom and I both about fainted!!! We were all pretty certain it was another girl…needless to say, I was totally shocked–in the best way possible!
As the ultrasound went on and everything about our little guy looked great, I was overwhelmed…with happiness, gratefulness, and so much love for this little person who’s mom I get to be. So incredible.
Is he perfect or what?!
So now the fun begins…pinning nursery ideas, thinking about names, and figuring out how in the world to dress a little boy?!? Turns out they don’t wear headbands or sparkly shoes…who knew?!?!? 😉
Oh boy, I have a lot to learn!!!!
