We are having a boy! It took two tries yesterday to get him to reveal his gender (the umbilical cord kept getting in the way) but the second attempt was the charm. I am undoubtedly pregnant with a little man. We have a son! I have a son. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around that one. I'm honestly so excited though. And I have to say, it was really fun watching him on the ultrasound. I didn't even mind the fact that it took awhile to discern that he was indeed a he. I just loved watching his tiny movements, seeing his profile, and witnessing his self-soothing technique of keeping both hands by his face.
Klair is really excited too. Although she told the world in our pregnancy reveal video that she wanted a "girl," she started changing her tune lately and would occasionally tell us she wanted a "boy" or a "brother." At the end of the ultrasound she cried out, "Yaaaaay!"--an exclamation unprovoked by any of us. I think she is genuinely happy to have a little brother on the way, and I can't wait to see my two babies together.
So now we have some work to do. Is it just me or is it harder to try and find good boy names? I want to name him a good, strong, classic name... and most are taken, or have been stolen by girls. We really need to end that trend... it makes it so much harder for those of us tasked with naming a boy. If the baby had been a girl, our name would have already been chosen--not so with a boy. We have some ideas, but we're divided on what to do. Wish us luck. Also (and I'm not sad about this) we are going to need to buy an entire wardrobe of clothes. Good thing boy clothes are so dang cute! I really am pretty excited about that aspect.
Oh! And the nursery. That's another thing I'm really stoked about. Pinterest, here I come!
Also here are some more photos of the big-sister-to-be because I love them.
