Out numbered

At my 16 week ultrasound we found out another little boy will be joining our family come July!

Marvin was shocked; I thought it would be a boy.

Not that I wouldn’t love to have a little girl someday, but I love being a mom to boys.

The other day Calvin was sucking up the peanut butter from his lunch with his straw and blowing “peanut butter bombs” on his plate.  Girls don’t do that.  It’s fun to explore the world with my boys through new eyes.  Our house is definitely filled with lots of sound effects and Micah loves to add in all his grunts too.  We’re thrilled to be blessed to have the opportunity to shepherd another little boy.

Plus the frugal side of my heart is a bit relieved that we already have all the clothes we need with the exception of a few summer things we’ll need at the start.  It’s such a blessing because things are crazy expensive here and it’s so stressful trying to figure out what to order and what sizes, if that brand runs small or big, etc.

Calvin’s growing to the idea.  Although he’s still hoping they were wrong, he has a bigger need for a sister because he already has a brother.  Plus he needs another princess around to rescue, maybe someday buddy.  Although he did make a suggestion for the name if it was a boy baby, Charge.  What do you think?  

I’m 18 weeks along now. I’m ready to be done with the whole nausea stuff; surely it has to end soon.  I'm feeling this little fella swimming around, so that's been fun.

I’m beginning to show, yet still feel that I’m in that awkward, feeling thicker in the middle stage (aka fat).  Although a neighbor told me the other day that I looked thinner, weird.  I guess it’s not saying much as this specific neighbor is often tipsy when we see him and this day  he was not.)

Overall I’m thankful for a so far healthy pregnancy and that our little guy keeps growing and growing.
