News


I had my 18 week ultrasound yesterday and found out that we'll be having another little BOY!!! I was kind of in shock when we found out because I seriously thought we were having a girl (so much for the Chinese Lunar Baby Calendar gender predictor!) But the shock is starting to wear off and I'm getting excited for another little guy. However, this does spoil my plans of not having to "try for the girl" and being fine with 2 kids.

It's actually been kind of nice to think about what an easy transition it will be with another boy. The clothes and toys won't need to be replaced (I won't have to share my wardrobe budget with another girl, sweet! :) and I know Noah is going to love having a little bro to play with/order around. It would be nice to think that this baby will be a calmer more gentler version of Noah but the way he was punching at the ultrasound tech when she got up in his face and sat spread eagle the whole time -- it seems that we don't make 'em shy.

In other news, I think Noah is finally starting to figure out this whole addition to the family thing. We told him about the baby in my belly -- which now he automatically tries to lift my shirt to "find it" and we've been talking about what we're going to do with the baby after it grows and gets big enough to come out. However, I think a few wires have been getting crossed because it came out the other day that he thinks there are babies in pumpkins too and that we eat them when they come out. Hmmm... we'll have to do some fine tuning of our explanations.

Although, I must say that it has been really sweet to see him be more aware of little babies. Everytime he sees one he points it out and says how cute it is. So, if we can just get over the images in his head that I can only imagine consist of my belly exploding and an edible baby flying out, I think we'll be on the right track.

Congratulations! Saving money is awesome and there will be some fun horsing around of the Ayden and Hudson variety. On second thought, you may have to spend that money on padded walls.

Congratulations Jess! Have fun with your two boys. Henry was always really sweet with babies and when Beatrice came he loved her from the first moment and has always been really sweet, kind and gentle to her even though he's really accident prone and rough with everything else in his life. Sounds like Noah will be the same. Have a fabulous pregnancy!
