We're Having a . . .


It's actually kind of hard to believe even though I was leaning towards boy. I know what to do with girls; what the heck do I do with a boy? The ultrasound tech said, "try to keep up".

Paige is super excited and buried her huge grin in her dad's chest when the tech made the announcement.

We all knew it was a boy before she said anything; it was obvious.

Ben has remained quite contained about it all, most likely to avoid any appearance that he's happier with a boy than he would have been with a girl.

My mom sat on my couch for almost an hour afterwards looking up and discussing names. I just can't seem to get excited about any boy names.

I AM excited about getting some new baby clothes, blankets, and things for the nursery. And OF COURSE I'm excited about having a SON!

I'm still so so excited for you! And don't know what to do with a boy?! Yeah right. You are going to be great with a boy! I've seen you with Andrew and Owen and I'm sure Miller too. You'll be fabulous. So happy for you! :D

I'm sure this boy will make up for the fact that he is the only one in the house (well besides Ben). You will do great and have a blast. CONGRATS!!!!! I'm excited to hear names.

Congratulations! Having a boy has been bliss. I must admit we also had a hard time adjusting to the switch from all things pink. The girls love their baby brother to pieces.

Yay! So exciting. For my next one I can't even pretend I'd be OK with another boy! Anyway, I understand how you feel. So fun!
