We’re Having A….

OmbreGenderRevealCake-Title2

I could barely keep my fingers from writing this post 3.5 seconds after leaving my OB’s office…we’re having a boy!!!! Another boy. Oh man we are so pumped. Stu and I have been pretty sure from the start this would be the case but everyone else was sure there was a girl hiding out in there.

It was like déjà vu in the ultrasound room, no more than a minute passed before I shouted “Its a boy!!” because I saw THE EXACT SAME view of that little man part that we did four years ago, the view that told us Ethan was, well, Ethan. The doctor confirmed my claim and Stu lifted Ethan closer to the screen in order to point out the goods.

We got all of one good profile pic, this kid was doing back flips for an hour of ultrasounding, legs usually over his head like a little acrobat. No wonder I’m feeling so much so early!

Ethan’s reaction was slightly delayed, he gave a good pout (an act he’s been perfecting lately) saying he really wanted a sister, NOT a brother. But he quickly came around to the idea and promptly asked for my iPhone so he could play Reading Raven. 10 minutes is his ultrasound-interest max.

To tell our locally based family about our news, my friend Catrina whipped up a little masterpiece of a gender announcement.

Everything suddenly feels very real. Not only are we half way done cooking Peanut #2, we now have to put planning into high gear. We “break ground” on the nursery next weekend and I’m currently a blank slate…not even a color in mind much less a theme. And there’s the name issue, we’re currently very torn between two very viable options.

For now, I’m just continuing to grow.

    Can’t wait for another “big boy.” It will be so much fun. Love the “blue” cake idea.

    Congratulations! And, you look great. You should see me, the look of surprise I get from people when I tell them I still have 16 weeks to go is pretty comical…or at least I tell myself it is so I don’t feel ridiculously huge. Hope you guys are doing well!
