By mid-pregnancy, I am eager beyond measure to "meet" our baby and find out the gender. The patience of couples who wait until the baby's birthday to discover the sex floors me. How can you stand the suspense?
Yesterday, tummy butterfly-full, Andrew and I made our way to my 20 week ultrasound appointment. We were so delighted to see our little one on the screen...kicking and yawning and basically being cute.
With both babies so far, we have gone to our mid-way ultrasound with both a boy and a girl name picked out. When the gender is revealed, it feels like meeting our baby...and we give them their name. I absolutely love being able to call the baby by name after that point.
And yesterday? We met our second baby boy!
What a sweet day. Squish is going to have a brother! I think I floated through most of yesterday.
When I wasn't floating, I was relaying to my husband the fact that we really need to move North. With two little boys, we will be spending huge amounts of time outdoors--we need to move someplace with cooler weather! My hot-pregnant-lady 2 cents, anyway.
Our second tradition after we find out the baby's sex is to buy the baby his 1st two outfits. Can you tell from the ones I picked that I like to cuddle babies (they say "Mommy's Hugger" and "Snuggle Bear")?
Two boys! What an adventure. Didn't Dobson write a book on raising boys? I should pick that up...
P.S. In hindsight, I should add that of course everyone thinks differently about when to find out the gender of their baby! There are fun stories either way...(I'm just impatient). Hubby wants to wait to find out once we have a boy and a girl...the suspense will probably do me in. ;)
