It's a Boy! So Now What...?!

Thank you all for your sweet words about baby boy! We are thrilled and can't wait to meet him in {hopefully} February! 

To let my co-workers know the gender, I made cupcakes with a blue wrapper -- because who wants blue teeth from icing?! 

Brandon went out and bought a brand new blue tie for the occasion, which he sad he was going to pass along to this sweet baby one day and tell him this is the tie he bought when we found out he was a boy. He wore it to work on Monday and got lots of exciting responses from co-workers. 

The gender reveal I referenced Monday...? Well, I couldn't wait to tell everyone, so I totally ruined the surprise. I truly am like a kid at Christmas. 

I had my aunt send these cookies to my mom and dad and to us {for my in-law's}, but they wouldn't have arrived until today and I just could. not. wait. 

But aren't they cute?!

On another note, we ordered his bedding on Friday evening {again, I couldn't wait!} and I'm absolutely in love with it. 

I just love sweet, precious baby boy bedding and clothes, which of course is just my taste. This was actually in the "It's a Surprise!" section of the website, but I just love how it's not too super hero-y, animal-y or fire truck-y. But of course, that's just my taste! 


Now that we know it's a boy, I sometimes get this overwhelming sense of fear/excitement/giddiness/pure shock that God has entrusted us with this little life, this little soul. I know we will be able to do this with His help, but knowing He has given us this gift is just so...overwhelming...at times. Not that we're not excited in the least; we just both sit back and thinking, "This is real. He is going to be ours. He is a gift. He is ours."

  1. It is the most precious amazing gift! You will love nearly every minute. Emphasis on the nearly! There will be times when you want to pull your hair out or just cry and other times you want to cry because you just love them (him!) so much it almost hurts. Parenting is hands down the hardest, most fun, most rewarding and craziest job I've ever experienced... I wouldn't trade a single moment of it. I know everyone says this but it goes by so quickly (it's hard to remember that on days that feel like they will never end) but every moment is worth it :-)
