So it looks like this mama’s intuition was right, because even though we really, really wanted another girl, the results are in, and there was a definite piece of anatomy popping out during the ultrasound that my girls didn’t have.
Yup…we’re having a boy!!!
Unlike the last two times (here and here), we didn’t do any fancy-schmancy gender reveals. I know that makes me a terrible blogger, but I just didn’t have time or the energy to come up with anything creative this time around.
*Note to all first-time pregnant mama bloggers: You may have all the time in the world, and are super duper excited, but don’t overdo it and go above and beyond during your first pregnancy, because there’s no way you’ll be able to keep it up for sequential kids…unless you’re super woman, of course.
Besides, my mom would’ve blown any fun reveal we had planned, because the second she stepped off the airplane she asked my almost-four-year-old
blabbermouth daughter if she was getting a brother or a sister, and Julia proudly yelled, “A BROTHER!”
So how am I feeling? Like, really feeling about this? I’m happy. Julia’s been asking for a little brother, so she’s pretty much over the moon. I’ve also done some window shopping the past few days, and there are some darling things out there for little boys. Plus, I’ve had more than a few people tell me how smitten little dudes are with their moms, so I’m looking forward to having a mama’s boy on my hands.
Much to my husband’s dismay, I’m not quite ready to get rid of the girls’ old clothes, but I do see a purge of their things in the near future.
Needless to say, we’re definitely in for an adventure in about four months!
