My boy!


2010 has been a pleasant year thus far. The month of January brought us some unbelivable news...WE ARE HAVING A BOY!

As some of you might know, I was hoping for a girl. Mostly because of the piles and bins of girls clothes I have! Oddly enough, when I found out it was a boy...it felt perfect...meant to be...exactly right. I never thought I'd feel that way about having a son...but I do!

My little boy still has a good 18 weeks to brew, but I feel like i've already learned so much about his personality. At our ultrasound, the tech had trouble getting certain readings because he was so snuggled down in my pelvis. She told me he was tucked up right against me...perhaps I have a mommy's boy on my hands! Frankly, I'm as happy as a clam at the thought of having a little momma's boy...as any mother would be :-)

I've been paying close attention to his awake times. He doesn't seem like much of a sleeper...waking me up at night with violent kicks and punches to the bladder. I'll admit, I'm a little concerned about these little kicks and punches turning into mongo kicks and punches in the upcoming weeks. I might end up with bruises! His constant moving makes me think I won't end up with a chill baby either. Alivia was the easiest baby ever! I may not get so lucky this time...Alivia definitely didn't move around this much in utero!

He is a blessing...our sweet boy. No matter what personality he ends up with...no matter who he looks like or how he behaves...no matter how much or how little he sleeps...I thank the Lord for him. Amazing how you can love someone so much...before you even meet!

For you lucky handful of readers out there... We've chosen a name and would love to share it with the world. We named alivia at her ultrasound and love the idea of calling our babies by name from 20 weeks onward :-)

On or around June 14, 2010...

I like the addition of the grandpas. Judah or Jude for short?

Do you think he'll be born w/ daddy's sideburns?!?! :)

thank you sweet friends!!

I think we'll likely use Jude as a nickname...but he'll be Judah first and foremost :-)
