Well, I went in for my 20-week ultrasound today. I was so excited about it all week I could barely focus on any task and last night I didn’t sleep well. Okay, part of that was heartburn. But I have been looking forward to finding out whether we’re having a girl or a boy for a long time! And today I finally found out. A boy! :)
I was kind of in shock at first. I know nothing about boys and was finding it easier to imagine carrying another girl than a little boy. I grew up with one sister and didn’t have a lot of friends who were boys so I feel completely clueless. Will they enjoy playing together? I have a lot of questions and I’m sure they’ll be answered as time goes on.
I’m now thinking happily about all of the cute boy fabrics I need to buy so that I can start making bibs, burp cloths, and blankets for this little one! And I’ll need a crib set… wow, we have so much pink in this house. lol Guess that’ll change!
Here’s a picture of the minky blanket I made for him:
A good friend from church who just had a little boy is going to give me a lot of cute little boy clothes, so that will be a definite blessing. I have still have most of Emma’s girl clothes I was thinking I might use (when I thought I was having a girl). They’re not in the greatest shape so not really anything I would want to pass on – not that I know anyone having a girl – so I’ll be making them into a memory quilt for Emma. That will be a fun project.
I’m glad I didn’t put too much thought into a girl name. I had a lot of favorites written down somewhere but as far as boy names, my husband really wanted to be able to name our baby if it was a boy. Since I named Emma. :) And he has had the name Isaac picked out since he found out we were pregnant.
I wasn’t sure about the name Isaac at first, but I really like it now. And I’m relieved that I don’t have to be thinking about names! I can focus on the important things: clothes, accessories, and bedding! Yes, the fun stuff. :)
I wasn’t sure how I would feel if I found out I was having a boy, but right now I feel nothing but extreme happiness and excitement. Everything looked good and he’s growing symmetrically, and he has arms and legs – who can ask for more? :)
