It's... a...

I would scan the pictures from our ultrasound to show you that we're having a boy, but they're all the way upstairs.

So.

I'll just tell you.

It's a boy.

"Are you excited," is what you want to ask, because that's what everyone's asked. I think, if I were to rank my emotions at this time, they would be as follows:
  1. Overwhelmed
  2. Panicky
  3. Relieved that a) it's not twins as was the suspicion of a woman at church, b) he has 10 fingers, 10 toes, 2 kidneys (because we have kidney issues in our family), and a normal sized head and 3) they moved my due date up to July 14th. Sah-weet. (But also, to go along with numbers 1 and 2, if this baby comes on the 14th, that will be 2 days before Lillian's birthday, so for two days, I'll have 3 kids, 3 and under. And, oh. crap. That sounds like a lot of work.)
  4. Excited
I'm still no closer to deciding on a name than I was a few weeks ago. We have a short list of 3, but I'm not ga-ga about any of them. I like them as names, but none of them jump out as THE name for THIS baby.

Congratulations!!! How fun. I do want to ask if you're excited. I understand the overwhelmed feeling too though.

Yay!

Yay for boys. Yay for bodily function jokes, burps and all manner of immature actions.

Wahoo!
I still really like Calder! Nate and I came up with tons of girls names we agreed on but only one boys name. And we already used it. So if he have another boy, we're in trouble. Not to mention the fact that I'll cry for about 7 of the 9 months....

Good luck with that! I do not envy you. How's that for honesty?

Are you excited?!??!??!?!?!?

I think it's four kids 3 and under. The dog counts.

And, congrats, btw. I was panicked about having a boy, but gosh I love my little guy. It'll be great.

I'm putting in my two cents and voting for the names Ethan or Aiden.

Are you ready for a boy? Don't worry, if I can handle boys, it must not be that hard.
