Some of you may have seen our announcement a few days ago on Instagram but wanted to share the news that IT’S A BOY! on the blog today!
(The Sweeeetest little pair of Leather Chucks)
We had an ultra sound at around 19 weeks and unfortunately my husband was out of the country so he couldn’t be there for the gender reveal! We had agreed to have the ultrasound tech write down the results and put it an envelope that my husband and I would later open together. Well
I am we are the worst with any kind of surprise so after about two minutes of seeing the little baby on the monitor I told her to go ahead and tell me what it was! She laughed and said “noooo! I’m going to write to down and tape it shut and if you decide to open it once you leave the office that’s on you”. So I left the office and didn’t think any more about that envelope. That is until my husband called 20 mins later and wanted me to open it and tell him over the phone. Well I didn’t take much convincing and as soon as I opened the envelope I saw the big letters “HE’S A BOY” and the ultrasound evidence to match. 😉
Growing up I always wanted three boys. I never thought of my self with a girl and now that I have one I just couldn’t imagine not having a girl! That being said I had just assumed that this time around was going to be another girl as well because my pregnancy had been pretty much identical to when I was pregnant with A. My husband is the most patient and sweetest man so if any guy was to have a team of all girls and be great with it, it would be him! Even though we both said we truly didn’t care what we had, i’d be lying if I said we weren’t a tad bit more excited to experience a little man in the house!
Ava on the other hand was not as thrilled lol. When I told her that the little baby in mommy’s tummy was a boy you should have seen her face! Immediately the eyebrows went into a frown and she said “ohhhh I really wanted a girl”. Talk about heartbreaking. I grew up with older brothers so I thought how neat of an experience for her to have a sister, someone she would be so close to but I hope she’ll be just as close to her little brother! So we are adding a little man to crew in February 2015!! I can’t wait for this experience (and to start shopping for him ;)))
If you mama’s have any adjustment tips for life with two or how to introduce or ease your toddler into welcoming a new baby home PLLLEASE share! I know I’m going to look back and laugh at the days I thought life with one kid was exhausting 😉
Hope you all are having a great week and HAPPY OCTOBER!
