We are in for a major change around here. Not only are we expecting our third child (due at the end of May) but this baby is a BOY!
Tyson is excited, and relieved. He loves his girls, but he has always worried that he would never get a boy so he is very happy about it. Lily was certain that this would be a baby sister. We took her with us to the ultrasound and she even told the tech that it would be a girl, but she was wrong. Didn't bother her though, she was excited about a baby brother and when the tech handed me a photo and CD of images Lily took them, hugged them to her chest, and said "I love my baby brother!"
I'm very excited, but all of the sudden this afternoon I started to feel a bit overwhelmed and nervous. I've got girls down, I know how to handle baby girls and I have everything that I need, but this boy is going to be a new adventure. Tyson and I had both felt for a while that this must be a boy, this pregnancy has just been so different, and I just felt like it was a boy. I kept bracing myself to hear that it was a girl though, it had to be, I have girls, and I didn't want to let myself be disappointed by getting my hopes up. Turns out that gut instinct was right though, this little guy was very clearly a boy. He wasn't very cooperative with pictures though, so what we have is very limited.
Forearms and hands
back and neck
one little foot
and the little guy giving us a thumbs up!
We are really excited for this new chapter in out lives!
Looks like I need to get my sewing machine back out and get to work, not that I really need an excuse, but now I get to try out a bunch of the fun baby pins that I've been finding on Pinterest for the last year.
