We are so thrilled about starting our family with our sweet little boy :)
On Wednesday, we had THE ultrasound, and I was a ball of nerves. On one hand, I was super excited to find out the gender of our wee one. On the other hand, I was anxious about the health of the baby. Was everything going to be okay? What if something was wrong?
I spent a lot of time in prayer the night before the ultrasound--praying for peace and trusting that God had everything in His hands (no matter what the outcome was).
I was definitely more relaxed by the time we had our ultrasound appointment :)
After a few minutes in the ultrasound room, the technician asked if we wanted to know the gender. We both nodded and emphatically said "Yes!"
About two seconds later, she found his little behind and said, "Well, you're having a boy!"
Once she declared this, I felt this strange mix of emotions. Relief--to finally just know. A little sadness that we weren't having a girl (although if we were having a girl, I would have felt the same way about not having a boy...I want both!!). Finally, excitement about the idea of a little boy padding around our home!
After the ultrasound, we finished up our gender reveal cupcakes to surprise some friends at our Christmas party. It was fun to mix in the blue icing and anticipate what they would think!
Here's a few pics of our friends digging in to the surprise-color-in-the-middle cupcakes:
We are so thankful that everything is looking healthy and that we are going to have a son!!
So, moms of boys, any good advice?
