I had originally planned to post this yesterday, but decided to hold off. I didn’t want anyone to think I was april fools day joking about this VERY big news! Finally, yesterday we learned this little baby in my belly’s gender… whether we’d be welcoming a brand new little girl or really moving out of our comfort zone by adding a baby boy to the mix! Since it’s officially spring, I thought I’d let big sister Eva and some appropriately colored flowers break the news! Find out what we’re having, blue or pink, after the jump!
IT’S A BOY! We are so excited! With every step I’ve taken since we found out, I hear “one-of-each, one-of-each.” Sean and I both come from families with an older sister and younger brother combo, so somehow this family dynamic just feels right to us. Eva had hoped for a little brother since the beginning, and I’m happy she gets what she wanted (at least for now). It’s been almost 5 years since she was a baby, and I’m super thrilled to do it all over again…in a totally different way. Now, we just have to buy a whole new wardrobe and come up with a name, nbd.
I’ve hardly mentioned my pregnancy since I announced it 4 weeks ago, so I wanted to take a moment to fill you guys in. My morning sickness is long gone, and my energy level is pretty much back to normal. I’ve been consistently feeling kicks and movement every day for the past few weeks. It’s my favorite part! My immune system has really taken a back seat to baby production, and I’ve come down with several nasty bugs in the past few weeks. But, now that the weather is warming up, I’m hoping I’m done with that as well. Thank you guys for your support and enthusiasm. It really does mean a lot to me!
