The Wait is Over

I know that many of you have been eagerly awaiting to find out if I’m having a girl or a boy. When I first found out I was pregnant again, I wanted to keep the sex of the baby a surprise like we did with Moo.  However, with a mountain of people breathing down my neck for the last 19 weeks, I gave in and found out.  I knew that if the ultrasound tech told my hubby he wouldn’t be able to keep his mouth shut.

So without further delay people I am happy to announce:

I just wish you all could have seen Jay’s face when she announced that we were having a baby boy.  He was beyond beaming.  And that was all he talked about for the rest of the day.  Talk about a proud papa.  LOL.  Still haven’t picked out any nicknames yet, but I’m sure I’ll think of one soon.

For me, finding out that I was having a boy was a rush of mixed emotions.  I was overwhelmed because this is going to be a new adventure for me. Raising a boy is going to be very different from raising a girl.  I thought about how Moo is going to feel not having someone she can play dress up and tea party with.  However, overall I am just happy that my little boy is healthy.

(Please excuse the lint. Black picks up everything.)

He has all ten fingers and toes in the right place, his heart is beating good and he’s doing plenty of moving.  I’m really excited to start shopping for the new nursery.  I’m thinking a Patriots theme for sure, but the Jay says he wants a neutral sports theme instead.  (He’s not a big fan of Tom Brady).  However, we’ll see who wins this battle.  I’m already eyeing a cute little Patriots shirt and crib mobile.  Not to mention, I’m trying to track down some Patriots fabric and make a blanket with!!

The rest of the family is excited as well.  My brother is especially happy that he is finally not the only boy in our family.  He has someone he can buy all that Ralph Lauren boy stuff he’s been eyeing for a while now.  And my mom is kinda sad that she’s not getting her twins. I have no idea what her obsession is with me having twins.  She was hoping for one of each.

Oh well…I guess she’ll have to wait for somebody else to pop out her set of twins.  I’m pretty certain that this is going to be hit for me.  I’m certainly feeling like two is my limit.  Plus, Jay is older than me and doesn’t want to be an old man trying to chase after teenagers.  LOL.  Not to mention, college tuition is going to be thru the roof by the time Moo and our little boy are ready to go to college.

    @Kiranda-Yea, everybody keeps telling me that boys are easier than girl until they reach toddler age and get all hyper on you. LOL.

    @Skye-Thanks for stopping by!

    @Elizabeth-Thanks for coming by. Blessings to you and yours as well.

    @Laila-Thanks!! I'm hoping my labor will be faster this time than it was with Moo. They say the second baby always comes quicker. We'll see.

    @MsBabyPlan-Thanks!! I think will like being a big sister too.

    Congrats! When we have a baby I would love to keep the sex of the baby a secret but I always wanted my husband to be the only one to know. Being the mother carrying the child we are able to create a bond pre-birth to an extent the father will not be able to have the same bond. So my thoughts were if he knows the sex he is able to have/know something I wouldn't over the 9 months. I see from your posts those around you and family doesn't make keeping it a secret easy!

    @Legal Grinding Wifey-Yes, they make it very hard to keep it a secret. I don't regret finding out though. It's fun being able to have the hubby's input on designing the nursery and picking out baby clothes.
