When we first found out we were pregnant, we decided that we didn't want to know if we were having a girl or a boy until labor and delivery.
Ok, well, yes, that didn't last. Anyone who knows me knows I surely don't have the patience for that. As soon as we could find out, I wanted to know.
For our first, Thomas George, we did a big reveal party. It was so much fun, but I knew I didn't want to do that again.
So at our anatomy scan we had them write the gender down for us and put it in an envelope. We got home that night and decided we'd open it that weekend. Just 48 hours later we were holding a photo in our hand. I reached down and touched my belly but this time I knew....
My second little SON!
We're having another boy and I have to tell you, we're pretty darn excited.
Now, to be honest, when I found out I was pregnant with Thomas George I really, really wanted to have a girl. I grew up with two sisters and just couldn't imagine having a son.
This go around though, after knowing my little dude and the heart bursting love I have for him, I felt SUPER cool either way!
A boy. Bros. Boy mom.
Dad cried, I cried.... all the grandma and grandpas cried.
What will he be like? What color will his hair be? Will he look like mom or dad? Tall like his brother, er, I mean whole family?
I just don't know and that's the most exciting part of it all.
In just 11 short weeks we'll be meeting our second son and I am pretty sure we already have his name picked out! A family of FOUR!
