It's a...


BOY!

It's a... It's a...

...and we are positively over the moon! I had thought girl during the first whole part of my pregnancy- I was convinced it had to be one because this time was just so different. But a couple weeks ago I started feeling like it was a boy, and Henry changed his tune too, telling me this week that there was a brother in there. Funny, right? And lo and behold...today we discovered that yes, there is a baby boy doing wonderfully in there. He was a stubborn little guy, and had his legs crossed for over an hour resulting in a long, long ultrasound (bless our patient tech!), but in the end it worked out and we got to sneak and peek.

We're all so excited. I feel so, so fortunate to have grown up with a sister, and I can't imagine a better gift for Henry than a brother to spend his days with. Feeling so lucky today, and counting down 'til August when we meet our little guy.

Thank you all for all of your excitement and support. It's so neat knowing all of you are along on this journey; I think blogging makes times like this 100x more fun, if that's even possible!

xoxo

It's a... It's a... It's a...

p.s. if there was audio in that photo up there, you'd hear Henry yelling CHEESE until he was red in the face. Sometimes he even yells FROMAGE! if he's feeling especially silly. Can't wait to see this rascal as a big brother.

    1. Heh - I just noticed you started your post with "over the moon" -The end-of-term student in me that's in feverishly editing papers mode is hating that I didn't catch that... but, accidentally repetitive or not "over the moon" certainly is accurate!!

  43. These are the cutest "it's a..." announcement photos EVER! CONGRATULATIONS!

    When I was pregnant with my middle child (girl) and my youngest (boy), my oldest called it both times. It was the strangest thing. I hadn't even known I was pregnant with my middle child for 24 hours and my oldest was already going around telling people she was going to be a big sister. With my son she called it before I even found out I was pregnant. Creepy.

  44. Congratulations! That's so positively exciting. I spent the whole first part of my pregnancy feeling like it was a girl. My intuition didn't even make room for the thought of a boy, and Surprise, I found out last week that I'm also having a sweet little boy bundle. Hooray for us! :D

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hooray! Those pictures are so sweet. Definitely frame worthy!

  46. So super happy for your family!! I have a boy and I would LOVE to have another boy!!
    I notice you keep Henry's hair long (LOVE) we do too with our son. Do people always comment on his hair being in his eyes? People make comments to us ALL the time and I hate it! So I've been putting "boyish" headbands and hair clips in my sons hair it's soooo cute, have you ever thought of this?;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. hehe. Just as I thought (as I mentioned yesterday in my comment about how both of my boys had very different pregnancy experiences). I hope you enjoy life with two little boys! It is loads of fun (and a bit frustrating at times, but worth it). I am sure you'll enjoy seeing how great it is that they will have one another to play with and cause trouble with haha. Congratulations to your family on finding out!!
