Happy November, everyone! It's also officially baby #2 month! My due date is the week of Thanksgiving and I'm 100% looking forward to starting this new journey in our life. I've started working 100% remote now, so I've been trudging along all week at home this week. I actually took a day off in the middle of the week to get some last minute baby stuff done as well as get some rest. I've started having a lot of false contractions, so I'm trying to get as much rest as possible before it's go time!
So if you haven't kept up with us on Instagram then you're probably still wondering what we're having...I meant to do this post months ago after we had our gender reveal party but per usual, time just got away from me. So I'm very excited to share on this little space that we're having another BOY!
In my heart, I knew we were having another little boy. Yes this pregnancy has been very different than my first one, but something kept telling me I was carry another incredible baby boy. I remember still being surprised though at our reveal! Right before we unveiled the gender, I remember second guessing myself and thinking, maybe it's a little girl!? Either way, our reveal was so special and the gathering was so much fun. Here's how we did it...
We had our 20 week anatomy ultrasound early in the week. We asked the tech to check the gender but not tell us what it was. She wrote it down and put it in an envelope for us to open later. That weekend, my best friend Ashlyn came in to town and we gave her the envelope. We hadn't looked at it all week because we wanted to be surprised at our reveal party with the rest of our friends and family. We hosted a BBQ at our house to do the big reveal. Ashlyn secretly opened the envelope and went to get either blue or pink balloons to tell us if it was going to be a boy or girl. Funny side note: it was a crazy hot day and helium + heat really don't mix well. All the balloons popped in her car on the way back to our house on her! She said it was like a massacre in her car! She got it all figured out though and safely made it back with a few balloons to release for us at the BBQ. She then put them in a bin and the wait continued...
After everyone arrived and filled up on some yummy appetizers, we went out in the backyard and opened the bin. The blue balloons flew out and we we're so excited to finally know we were having another little boy! To this day, I remember how happy my heart was and I'm so excited to be a mama to not just one, but two handsome little boys. I love being a boy mom. I know how to do it, I love it, and I feel like I'm pretty good at it. It suits me and I'm truly so honored that God has chosen me to mother not only another little baby, but another baby boy. He'll be in my arms so soon, and I truly cannot wait.
