And we are thrilled!! Surprised would be an understatement. As evidenced by previous posts, we totally thought it was a girl. Here's why:
I went in for an ultrasound at 13 weeks or so, and while I was there I asked the technician if she had a guess on what the gender was. She told me it was still too early to tell, but that she was 80% sure it was a GIRL. Crazy! I went home and told Daniel the possible news. We both knew that it was far from certain, which is why we didn't say anything. But when we went in for our big ultrasound this past week, we thought we pretty much knew what the technician would say.
So imagine our surprise when the lady told us we were having a BOY!!! It was crazy! Honestly, it was SO fun to be surprised. It was like finding out we were having a baby all over again. A boy! A son! A man cub! I am seriously so excited to get to raise this little boy.
In other news, we were even more excited to learn that baby looks healthy so far. The doctor said all is well, and that was so reassuring. It's a lot of responsibility sharing a body with someone else. We've been so blessed with everything going well so far, and I never want to take that for granted.
After the ultrasound, my sister Allison and I decided on a whim to make an ombre three-layer cake to celebrate baby boy! We had a great time.
Honestly, we totally winged it but it turned out great! Couldn't have done it without her.
Now, we just need to start planning for a baby BOY rather than a girl! Ha. Back to square one with names, nursery ideas, etc...We've totally been in girl-mode. I even had to remind myself that the ultrasound picture that's been hanging on our fridge for weeks is actually a boy, not a girl. Yay for baby boys!!
