Little gummy bear ultrasound from a couple of weeks ago!
You guys, my mind is blown that we are having a BABY BOY. I also can’t stop shopping…but I had this problem with Blake too, when I was pregnant with her. I just get so dang excited. First off, lots of questions about how we found out so early – we did the blood test and basically they just check for an X or Y chromosome and ta-da, done 😉 Here we are, with a Y chromosome and A BOY!
I’m not joking though, you guys I KNEW IT. I knew we were having a boy, whether it’s just the fact that this pregnancy has been night and day difference from Blake’s or what, but I just knew it was a boy, so when I got the email I was not shocked at all. A little nervous? Yes. Shocked? Nah. HA! I just grew up with two sisters and well, have a little girl, soooo boys are unknown territory for me and I’m sure I’m in for a treat. But I’ve heard that they just are so sweet with their Mamas and I’m stoked for that. The craziest part about all of this – is Blake. She was telling us before we even transferred for IVF that she WAS having a brother. Then when I found out it worked and we were pregnant, she would tell me everyday about her “baby brother” that was coming or some comment about “the boy in Mommy’s tummy”. I’m telling you, these littles know more than we do y’all. HA
Then when we told her that it was a boy, she was excited obviously then two minutes later, looked at me and said “I TOLD YOU.” Cool yeah, sorry, my bad, should’ve just listened to you 😉
Marcus is stoked to have a boy though and I’m stoked to watch him be a parent to a boy 😉 Because I am crossing my fingers I get to be the fun parent a little more and finally get to watch him be disciplinary. Hahah. If you didn’t catch this week’s podcast, we talk allll about that. Blake has him wrapped and basically could do no wrong in his eyes, which is super sweet too, but also like listen, help a sista out over here. She’s definitely Daddy’s little girl though, sooooo stoked to have Mommy’s little boy. 😉 RIght? Hopefully, fingers crossed.
We went to Target last week after our date night (typically how it ends) and bought allll the cute baby things. Marcus was picking out tiny matching joggers (like ones he has) and I about burst. I’m going to link some of the cute things we grabbed and I’ll start sharing more purchases on insta-stories here soon. However I will say…I totally see what all you boy Moms have been saying – there were like 4 rows of girl clothes and like 1.5 of boys. Sooo I guess that’s about to be my life too. It also probably doesn’t help that I’m picky AF.
WELLPPP Y’ALL BABY BOY. GIMME ALLL YOUR TIPS + TRICKS BECAUSE NEWB.
