It's A ...

BOY!





Um, Wow! I'm in total shock! Brayden Paul W**** will be joining us in January! I soooooo thought I was having a girl. As soon as Teena, the world's sweetest ultrasound tech put the thing on my belly she announced "Boy!" I almost told her to check again! Ha! But I am over the moon happy!



My doctor wasn't present at the ultrasound so she couldn't technically tell me that everything looked normal but she knew that I knew most of the things she was looking for so she would say things like "That's the four chamber heart" or "There's the neck - looks good!" really obviously for me to pick up on! On our way out she whispered "Everything looked good to me" so I feel encouraged by that. Dr. Smith said he would only call if there was a problem and since I haven't heard from him I feel pretty good about it.



Tomorrow I am going to a store in Fayetteville called "Two Chic" to get a couple of things I wanted...like the "It's a Boy" t-shirt and the Peanut Shell baby sling pictured below:



Oh and I almost forgot! Chris felt the baby kick last night!!!! Brayden seems more active when I'm about to go to sleep (go figure) and when I eat pancakes. Apparently Brayden likes them as much as I do! Anyway, it was so cool to finally be able to share that feeling with Chris!

I hopped over here from Kelly's Korner to read about your good news...Congratulations!!! You are going to LOVE having a boy...my foster son (who we hope to adopt)is six months old and I couldn't be any happier with my sweet baby boy!

The pattern for that Peanut Shell is beautiful...excellent choice! I have a Hotsling with those same colors (pastel blue and chocolate brown) and I LOVE IT!!! I still use my sling but it was especially helpful when he was a newborn and wanted to snuggle ALL the time.

Hi! I'm a friend of Kelly Stamps'...I wanted to say congratulations! Little boys are very very sweet--he'll win your heart instantly! My little boy is 4 1/2, and he is so much fun! Just today he wore basketball shorts, a t-shirt and cowboy boots out to lunch...I didn't think I'd ever be the mom that let him do that, but I AM! And it made me smile to see him wearing such an outfit. :)

Congrats on your new little boy. Boys are great - I should know, I have my very own Brayden Jackson who is now 10. Wow. 10!
Where does the time go??

Just to let you know - boys are so much less drama than girls. Be glad.

Krysta said...

Hey, thanks for your prayers. It's been tough, but I'm making it. A BOY!!! Congratulations! That's exciting! That is one of my boy names, so I love the name. :)

CONGRATS!!!

Tip about the sling...my little man hates being in that style sling so far. The experts tell me a wrap or ring sling are better for newborns and then that style is good for when they can hold their head up. I have a wrap on the way, and will give an update on my blog on how we like it!
