We’re Having A…


It was only a matter of seconds into the ultrasound before the first jumbo image flashed on the screen.
Imagine that’s the view if you were changing the baby’s diaper.
Nope, he’s not shy–not one bit.

You certainly didn’t need a degree from sonogram school in order to determine that we were adding another busy boy to our little family.

And as much as I had dreams of tutus and headbands,
deep in my heart I knew this little peanut in my tummy was a “he” after all.
Just think about it…now I can get those bunk beds I always imagined having.
And I get to pull out those little red high-top red Converse shoes that Lil W hardly wore,
and that owl beanie, and the mini overalls, and the baby sized suits.
Not to mention, I’m already an expert at changing boy diapers.
And if it’s the last thing I do, I’ll see to it that my little guys are the best of friends forever.

P.S. Turns out he’s already an avid thumb sucker.

  39. I too am having a second boy and I knew it all along, but I won’t lie I had hopes that the ultrasound would prove me wrong. It didn’t and I’m finally coming to terms with it, I’m such a girly girl and was so looking forward to pink and bows. I also felt like everyone around me was adding a girl to their boy status and was getting jealous. But now I’m happy thinking about all the boy stuff we already have and getting anxious to unpack all that cute boy clothes we spent a fortune on!! It’s all in Gods plan, right??!! Congrats to you and thank you for assuring me I’m not the only one who isn’t having a girl the second time around!

  54. JessicaLynn says:

    So happy for you guys I have two boys that are close in age too and they’re just starting to become friends. I still dream of tutus and head bands πŸ™‚

  55. Oh, CONGRATULATIONS!! As a mom of twin boys I can tell you, there are few things more precious than the love between brothers. You’re going to love having two boys! Hang in there and stay healthy!

  56. Ah! Congratulations, that’s so exciting πŸ™‚

  57. My first was a boy. And I’ll admit, there was a slight twinge of sad when I found out #2 was a boy b/c I was excited for girly, too. But I would NOT do it any other way. There are seriously the absolute best of friends. At 11 and 9, they really don’t ever fight. Though they are different in their likes, they have many common loves. It warms my heart, the friendship that they share. I did eventually have the girls;) Congrats!

  58. Congrats Ashley πŸ™‚ i have a dream of having a little boy army running around my house too…and now you get to have that. Such a blessing. oh and p.s. you totally make the cutest little boys! I can’t wait to see the new peanut.

  59. Congratulations!!

  60. This totally made me smile! Oh I was so hoping for a little girl for you all… but boys really are a lot of fun too!! πŸ™‚ Yay! Thanks for sharing with us, and its good to see you back in my blog updates!! πŸ™‚

  61. Many congratulations.
    I, of course, wanted a healthy baby first and foremost, but I was happy to have another girl, so I could see all the cute clothes my first daughter wore again.

  62. Yay! Congrats! As soon as I read the title to the post I knew it was a boy! (I had a 50/50 chance anyway). Lil W is gonna have a Lil brother and they’re gonna be the best of friends. My son is 13 months and I can’t wait to give him another sibling- especially a brother πŸ™‚ Congrats again!

  63. p.s. Are you thinking about some of the names you were thinking about before?

  64. I have 2 boys and I adore their bond. (they are almost 4 and almost 2) I am cooking baby #3. We don’t find out the sex (I like to pretend that it could be a girl) but I am guessing another boy. As much as I too dream of headbands and tutus another boy would really work for us! Congratulations on your newest addition!

  65. Congrats! Boys are the best!!!

  66. Congrats!!!

  67. congratulations momma!!! i’m sure they will be best of friends πŸ™‚

  87. I am also around 19 weeks and had an ultrasound on Monday. We like the surprise at the end, so we didn’t find out whether it is a boy or a girl. So excited that your little boy will have a brother to play with. Hope you are feeling better.

  107. Congratulations! I had my babies a long time ago and the sonogram images weren’t so great then. I pretended I could see the parts that my doctor was showing me because she was always so excited. I was just happy every time she said everything was normal.
